Goldman: Every Anarchist

"Every Anarchist partakes sufficiently of this ideal type to make it possible to differentiate him from other men.  The typical Anarchist may be DEFINED as follows: A man perceptible by the spirit of revolt under one or more of its forms,--opposition, investigation, criticism, innovation,--endowed with a strong love of liberty, egoistic or individualistic, and possessed of great curiosity, a keen desire to know. These traits are supplemented by an ardent love of others, a highly developed moral sensitiveness, a profound sentiment of justice, and imbued with missionary zeal."

~ Emma Goldman "Anarchism and Other Essays"
