Kropotkin

He is by far the greatest anarchist communist writer ever. His writings on evolution as rewarding mutual cooperation over aggression and war are great to read.

Socrates

While it is unlikely that everything that was written in the Socratic dialogues actually happened, they are indispensible in modern ethical and philosophical thought.

Marx

While I disagree with him on economic determinism and socialism as a means to establish communism, he is definitely one of the more brilliant communist thinkers.

Aristotle is my favorite.
"Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power."

I'm not a Marxist. It's more of a religion than a philosophical ideology. I don't believe in Marx's conception of history, economic determinism, class struggle, dictatorship over the protelariot, or socialism as a means to communism.

-John Finnis
-Hadley Arkes

The Wealth of Nations is nothing compared to Mutual Aid. In fact even Bakunin could take him with What is Property.

I think Alexander Berkman is a close contender for that position. His ABCs of Anarchism are very illuminating and incredibly well written.

His writings on evolution as rewarding mutual cooperation over aggression and war are great to read.

This cannot be denied.
