Download Hour1 Download Hour2The 19th century French social philosopher Pierre Joseph Proudhon, the first to describe himself as an anarchist wrote in his essay "What Is Property?"

Religious wars, and wars of conquest, when they have stopped short of the extermination of races, have been only accidental disturbances, soon repaired by the mathematical progression of the life of nations. The downfall and death of societies are due to the power of accumulation possessed by property.
