This week Gil O’Teen spoke with Peter Gelderloos, who is an anarchist and an author. His books include “The Failure of Nonviolence”, “Consensus”, “Anarchy Works”, and most recently “Worshiping Power: An Anarchist View of Early State Formation”, which is being released two days from now (January 10th 2017) from AK Press. Gil and Peter discuss the ideas in Worshiping Power, how states usually take root, the insidiousness of democracy, the concept of how salvation religions intertwine with the state, and much more. We had to cut a good portion of the audio for time restrictions, so if you would like to hear the full interview you can visit http://thefinalstrawradio.noblogs.org, or you can podcast us on iTunes or any similar podcasting system by searhing “the final straw radio”.
