Mikhail Bakunin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mikhail Bakunin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

"By 'liberty', Bakunin did not mean an abstract ideal but a concrete reality based on the equal liberty of others. In a positive sense, liberty consists of 'the fullest development of all the faculties and powers of every human being, by education, by scientific training, and by material prosperity.' Such a conception of liberty is 'eminently social, because it can only be realized in society,' not in isolation. In a negative sense, liberty is 'the revolt of the individual against all divine, collective, and individual authority.'"
