Proudhon - What is Property? - Political Phiolsophy Reading Group - April 2016

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon   (Click on the image to download an excerpt, which we’ll be discussing at the meeting.)

“Property is the suicide of society. Possession is a right; property is against right. Suppress property while maintaining possession, and, by this simple modification of the principle, you will revolutionize law, government, economy, and institutions; you will drive evil from the face of the earth.”

–Pierre-Joseph Proudhon,
What is Property? (1840)

The next meeting of the Political Philosophy Reading Group is  4 PM April 24th, 2016 at Libros Schmibros Lending Library in Boyle Heights.
