Ep. 0116: Abolitionism & Anarchism (CJ’s presentation from the Midwest Peace & Liberty Conference)

At high noon on Saturday August 27th 2016 I had the pleasure of speaking at the Midwest Peace & Liberty Fest. Here’s the audio of that presentation.

Join CJ as he discusses:

  • The different types of antislavery groups in Antebellum America
  • The most radical part of the abolitionist spectrum, including the New England Non-Resistance Society, who were Christian anarchists in all but name
  • How the anarchistic abolitionists simply took the antislavery arguments to their logical conclusions; and how some Southern defenders of slavery understood this
  • The contributions of the ‘extreme’ abolitionists to the success of the movement
  • Lessons and parallels for anarchists today
  • Some Q&A
