Originally the two terms were undifferentiated but by the 1840s communism was used by revolutionaries to differentiate themselves from reformists such as J.S.Mill who had adopted socialism to cover an indigestible mess of reformisms.</p>\r\n<p><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"60\" src=\"https://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?hide_cover=1&amp;mini=1&amp;feed=%2Fworkerssolidarity%2Fwhat-is-communism-william-thompson-libertarian-communism-and-free-software%2F\" width=\"100%\"></iframe></p>\r\n\";s:21:\"node_revisions_format\";s:1:\"2\";s:7:\"_random\";s:20:\"0.015983271427436985\";}}s:10:\"total_rows\";i:73;s:5:\"pager\";a:5:{s:9:\"use_pager\";s:1:\"0\";s:14:\"items_per_page\";i:2;s:7:\"element\";i:0;s:6:\"offset\";i:1;s:12:\"current_page\";i:0;}}', created = 1565436956, expire = 1565437256, headers = '', serialized = 1 WHERE cid = 'Random_PDF:block_1:results:24a1a9e032d9c6ba13bb723bbab90809' in /var/www/public/includes/cache.inc on line 112.

Who do the gardai really work for?
A consortium of Shell, Statoil, and Marathon do a deal with the government allowing them exclusive exploitation rights to the Corrib gas field, off Mayo. Not only that, but they are allowed to write off their costs against taxes, meaning that the whole project is being funded by the PAYE taxpayer, who will receive nothing, not even lower gas prices. It may sound a bit iffy but there is no garda investigation into possible bribery or corruption.

Rossport: In Defiance of the State
The month of October saw the community of Rossport occupied by the Gardai Siochana. This occupation is the State response to a community trying to protect themselves against Shell: a multinational with a track record for maltreating communities which they operate in.

The Role of an Anarchist Organisation
Looking around the world today it can be difficult to imagine how the society that we want to see can be created. But rather than sitting back and waiting for capitalism to collapse, or for the revolution to come, we believe in organising in the here and now.

On the road with an Irish pirate
While it can be hard to come across political documents that inspire, entertain and amuse, Ramor Ryan‘s Clandestines succeeds in doing just that.
