Pre-edit History look up to avoid conflict with other editors[edit]

I read the Anarchist Reader when I was seventeen. Now I've checked the edit history going back to 2005 and apart from one BattyBot edit (operated by GoingBatty) from March 2012 there are no other editors here that I recognize from previous edit conflicts and arguments.

This means unless BattyBot or GoingBatty has a valid reason to be here I should be free to edit as I wish without interruption from the usual gang of suspect editors for at least a year or so. Right lets get to it - great book the Anarchist Reader though more socialist than anarchist - 1st International and all that.

download sites for Anarchism: A History of Libertarian Ideas and Movements (1962)[edit]

The book is available online for readers of this article. I have actually read the book at the same time I read the Anarchist Reader. However I can't justify adding it as an external link. There's two reason that apply here. The most important is that Wikipedia itself is a publicly funded site that relies on donations from a wide range of sources. Despite editors expressing political views and opinions here - on the whole that tends not to impact funding since the site guidelines are structured to maximize the involvement of users from all groups of society. We have as many sports fans here writing as we do music fans. All in all this balances out the personal opinions and donors are apt to see that as befitting for a public site.

The second reason is I don't have strong opinions on politics. I have strong opinions on education and certain issues to do with equality and language use. I'm not against communism, anarchism or capitalism. Most of my work here is on music articles not politics. However if someone wants to read it then a quick search will throw up multiple links and I can recommend it as a good read. Its not so much "here's how to affect change on society" - if my memory serves me - it is more a well-written history of political thought from the period of the enlightenment onwards. Its been so long since I've read it - so don't take my assessment as correct - have a read and decide for yourself.

Is Fortune Press who published Woodcock's The White Island (1940) the Reginald Caton owned business[edit]

I searched Wikipedia for an article on Fortune Press so as to blue link. The search results threw up this article:

Reginald Caton

If it is then before anyone links to it - we need to sort the Caton article out. Probably one of the strangest articles I've come across yet on Wikipedia. Seems to be mainly "so and so said this" and "it was believed that he did that". I don't mind sorting it out at a later date but I'm actually intending to go back to music and guitarist articles. I just thought I'd add the link for others to see and hopefully someone would confirm that this is publisher connected to Woodcock's The White Island poetry book.

The role of the seminary[edit]

Cambridge has a few theological Anglican seminaries.

I'll have a look around - maybe which college it was at Cambridge is out there somewhere. Maybe it was a glint of an idea and no real plans or choices were made just the offer.
