Wednesday, March 9AGAINST THE STATE
, Part 1
modern secular state promises justice, good order and freedom. But
there have always been those who view the state with unease, as a threat
to the freedom of the individual. In 1894, the anarchist Emile Henry
threw a bomb into the Café Terminus in Paris. It was the first act of
modern terrorism. But anarchism as a political philosophy continues to
renew itself, always asking the question: why do we need the state? From
Paris then to Athens now, Philip Coulter
investigates the idea of anarchism. Part 2 airs Wednesday, March 16.
