In general wealth was rising throughout society, but so was the greed of those who owned the new factories, mines and plantations. The key question was: what was to be done about the general demand for democracy, and about the incessant clamour for political rights which, during the revolutions of 1848, had almost got completely out of hand?</strong></p>\r\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\r\n<p class=\"rtecenter\"><iframe frameborder=\"0\" height=\"120\" src=\"https://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?hide_cover=1&amp;light=1&amp;feed=%2Fworkerssolidarity%2Fparliament-or-democracy-a-history-of-both-a-choice-to-make%2F\" width=\"55%\"></iframe></p>\r\n\";s:21:\"node_revisions_format\";s:1:\"2\";s:7:\"_random\";s:19:\"0.00589074194979923\";}i:1;O:8:\"stdClass\":5:{s:3:\"nid\";s:4:\"6125\";s:10:\"node_title\";s:27:\"Irish Anarchist Review No 2\";s:21:\"node_revisions_teaser\";s:2596:\"<p>\r\n <span id=\"internal-source-marker_0.6484457798349057\" style=\"font-size: 11pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;\"><img alt=\"IAR2\" src=\"/sites/default/files/images/Cover - Half.jpg\" style=\"width: 340px; height: 498px; border-width: 1px; border-style: solid; margin: 3px; float: right;\" /></span><span style=\"font-size: 11pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;\">The Workers Solidarity Movement</span><span id=\"internal-source-marker_0.6484457798349057\" style=\"font-size: 11pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;\"> is very pleased to announce the second issue of The Irish Anarchist Review</span><span id=\"internal-source-marker_0.6484457798349057\" style=\"font-size: 11pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; text-decoration: none; vertical-align: baseline;\">.

Butterflies to taxonomy caseThe left talks a lot about class but in a manner that often confuses more than it clarifies. In this audio recording of a Rethinking revolution seminar at Seomra Spraoi Paul Bowman wonders just how useful the classification obsessed approach of the left actually is.

Rethinking revolution is a series of discussions in Dublin about the core ideas those of us who want revolutionary change think we have in common and so too often neglect to discuss. The discussions will be kicked off by an opinionated presentation of one or more approaches on these questions with the purpose of drawing all present into a discussion that we hope will continue long after the meeting. The talks are organised by the Outreach group of the WSM and inspired by those arguments we keep having in the kitchen at parties.

If your on Facebook you can receive notification of future discussions by joining the Rethinking Revolution group
