Mutual Aid

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of beneficient anarchism described by Russian anarchist Peter Kropotkin (1842-1921).

Mutual assistance amongst members of the same species is as natural as competition. The species - and by implication the societies - that have prospered and will prosper are those characterized by such voluntary support amongst their members rather than by conflict or competition.
