Excerpts from Noam Chomsky's talks, highlighting his historical analysis of anarchism, particularly the style of anarcho-syndicalism present during the Spanish Civil War. The takeaway is that all power is by default illegitimate, and must justify itself, and that only by allowing individuals to empower themselves can we move towards a less (or non-) exploitative system of interdependence.

absolutely worth reading.
