We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new project: “A Radical Audiobook Series.”
We aim to bring seminal works of radical thought into your living rooms, cars, or wherever you need a dose of revolutionary ideas.
Our inaugural title in this series is “A Radical Audiobook: Mutual Aid – A Factor of Evolution by Peter Kropotkin.” Initially published in 1902, this profound work invites us to explore the concept of ‘mutual aid.’ Kropotkin challenges the competition-focused theories of social Darwinism and romantic depictions of universal love found in the work of thinkers like Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Instead, he emphasizes the practical advantages of mutual aid for the survival and prosperity of both animal and human communities.
Jason Bayless, A Radical Guide’s social justice activist and founder, guides you through this exploratory journey. His engaging narrative style and deep comprehension of radical literature breathe new life into Kropotkin’s timeless essays.
As we delve into this text, we invite you to consider the historical context of the language and terms used. Part of our mission is to foster an understanding of how societal attitudes have evolved, paving the way for a more equitable future.
Stay tuned for more titles in this thought-provoking series. We’re just starting, and there’s much more to explore.
Thanks for joining us as we dive into these captivating explorations. Welcome to “A Radical Audiobook: Mutual Aid – A Factor of Evolution by Peter Kropotkin.”
