The Spectre of Utopian Anarchism

June 7, 2014


This being  my first venture into the “Anarchist Utopian Fiction” realm I was rather excited to see what this story was made of. I’d have to admit that as far as fiction goes while horror mysteries, romantic love stories, futuristic sci-fi, tales of james bond like spies, and street fiction are all the craze, I was interested in seeing a story told from a place that I’m personally struggling to help create everyday. The future seems bleak but in this story the future of anarchist principles and everyday praxis thereof have arrived and are espoused through the story in the different situations the characters find and have found themselves in.
