AN INTRODUCTORY WORD TO THE
ANARCHIVE
 
Anarchy is Order!
 
 I must Create a System or be enslavd byanother Mans.
 I will not Reason & Compare: my business
is to Create
 
(William Blake)
 During the 19th century, anarchism has develloped as aresult of a social current which aims for freedom andhappiness. A number of factors since World War I havemade this movement, and its ideas, dissapear little by
little under the dust of history.
 After the classical anarchism of which the SpanishRevolution was one of the last representativesa newkind of resistance was founded in the sixties whichclaimed to be based (at least partly) on this anarchism.However this resistance is often limited to a few (andeven then partly misunderstood) slogans such asAnarchy is order, Property is theft,...Information about anarchism is often hard to come by,monopolised and intellectual; and therefore visiblydisapearing.The anarchive or anarchist archiveAnarchy is Order ( in short
A.O
) is an attempt to makethe
principles, propositions and discussions
of thistradition available again for anyone it concerns. Webelieve that these texts are part of our own heritage.They dont belong to publishers, institutes or specialists.
These texts thus have to be available for all anarchists an
other people interested. That is one of the conditions togive anarchism a new impulse, to let the n

anarchism outgrow the slogans. This is what makes thisproject relevant for us: we must find our roots to be ableto renew ourselves. We have to learn from the mistakesof our socialist past. History has shown that a largenumber of the anarchist ideas remain standing, even
during the most recent social

economic developments.
 
Anarchy Is Order does not make profits,everything is spread at the price of printing- andpapercosts. This of course creates some limitations
for these archives.
Everyone is invited to spread along the informationwe give . This can be done by copying our leaflets,printing from the CD that is available or copying it,e-
mailing the texts ,...Become your own anarchive!!!
(Be aware though of copyright restrictions. We also
wan
t to make sure that the anarchist or non-
commercial
printers, publishers and autors are not being harmed.Our priority on the other hand remains to spread the
ideas, not the ownership of them.)
 The anarchive offers these texts hoping that values like
free
dom, solidarity and direct action
get a newmeaning and will be lived again; so that the struggle
continues against the
demons of flesh and blood, that sway scepters down
here;
 
and the dirty microbes that send us dark diseases and wish to
 
squash us like horseflies;
 
and the will
-o-
the
-wisp of the saddest ignorance.
