You Can’t Blow Up a Social Relationship

The Anarchist Case Against Terrorism

various authors


“You Can't Blow Up a Social Relationship” is a clear explanation of why anarchists oppose terrorism, and why terrorism or propaganda by deed can be of no benefit to the working class, as capitalism is a social relationship, not a group of bad individuals.

This essay was published as a pamphlet around late 1978 or 1979, in the aftermath of the Sydney Hilton Bombing. The black humour of the time around the anarchist movement was that the police and security forces framed Ananda Marga because they came before Anarchism in the dictionary.

“You Can't Blow Up a Social Relationship” was originally published in 1979 by a consortium of Australian anarchist and libertarian socialist groups and is reprinted with their permission. New footnotes in this edition!
