Sedition Sunday #1 - Peter Kropotkin - Memoirs Of A Revolutionist

Welcome to the Sunday Sedition. Each week there will be a piece of political news or a link to a political ebook/pdf. This week is Peter Kropotkin's autobiography Memoirs Of A Revolutionist.

Peter Kropotkin (1842 - 1921) was a Russian geographer, economist, activist, philologist, zoologist, evolutionary theorist, philosopher, writer and anarchist. He is perhaps most well known for his theory of Mutual Aid, that cooperation is more successful evolutionarily speaking than compeititon. He was born and raised in a well off family and could have become a noble person at the court. Instead he rebuked all that and became a scienttist, anarchist and revolutionary.
