Propaganda by the Deed

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of political tactics within anarchism.

Selectively violent acts against government, by provoking a more violent repressive response, can reveal to people at large the 'true' nature of the state as a coercive institution.

Such propaganda 'by the deed' achieves results which more conventional persuasion cannot.
