An Anthropological Perspective

Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library
Sun, May 13, 2012 - 10:30 am to 12:30 pm

Anarchists and communists share a similar vision of the future, a vision many feel is unrealistic. But Anthropology shows us that, before the emergence of class rule and the state, our ancestors lived in societies that can properly be described as anarchist and/or communist. It is not unreasonable to believe, therefore, that after the impending social revolution, humanity will emerge into the next higher plane of human existence, a return to the liberty, equality, and community of the ancestral commune, but on a higher level. Open discussion after a power point presentation by Gene Ruyle, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, CSU, Long Beach. —1963 BA in Anthropology, UC Berkeley; 1971 PhD in Anthropology, Columbia University.
