My Results

Peter Kropotkin

Peter Kropotkin - "Mutual aid is as much a law of nature as mutual struggle."

Born in Moscow in 1842, you come from a family of Princes descended from the legendary Russian Prince Rurik. Witnessing first-hand the inequality and injustice of the feudal system at home (your father owned 1,200 serfs), you eventually took up the cause of the peasantry and became the world's first "anarchist prince." A scientific and practical revolutionary, your most famous work, "The Conquest of Bread," describes in simple language how the common people can assume control the economic necessities of life. You are best known for giving mutual aid and cooperation its rightful standing in evolutionary theory.

My Opinion on My Results

Personally, I think I’m closer to Lysander Spooner than any other nineteenth century anarchist.
