Translated from the German by Doris Pfaff and John Zube. Edited by Edward Mornin.
First published by the MACKAY- GESELLSCHAFT, Freiburg/Br., West Germany in 1977.
This book won the First Alternative Peace Prize at the Alternative Book Fair in Frankfurt/M., West Germany, in 1977

This work begins with a clarification of much used — and mis-used — concepts such as: FREEDOM, FORCE, and ANARCHY. It launches a critical attack upon prevalent stereotyped ideas about the nature of the modern State. It goes on to present new thoughtprocesses as well as concrete suggestions for the realization of equal freedom for all:
1) Equal access to natural resources and distribution of the land-rent to everyone (especially in the cities);
2) Freedom of the means of exchange (of money and credit); 3) Open associations of management (and absurdity of unemployment); 4) Autonomous legal and social communities (genuine pluralism and freedom of
choice).
Above all, THE MANIFESTO offers an alternative way of thinking, which is necessary if we are to avoid catastrophe. Laying the basis for new social relationships upon general agreement instead of ideology, it presents the reader with an inevitable choice: either the law of the sword and aggressive force — or non-domination and equal freedom!
