Kurt Zube[edit]

John's father has an article on the German Wikipedia ( Anyone know German and care to translate it? - N1h1l (talk) 17:14, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Sorry, yes i do but don't care to. I WILL say though that the second line as the article stands now is pure non-sense:

"Born in Germany, Zube was introduced to libertarianism by his father, Kurt Zube, a prominent individualist anarchist persecuted under the Nazis. During the 1950s, Zube was radicalized by his interaction with Ulrich von Beckerath, leading him to begin assembly of an archive in 1952.[1]"

The opposite is closer to the truth. Kurt published Stirner, an extreme individualist (hence unrealistic to say the least, robinson crusoe edition galoritude notwithstanding). Beckerath, on the contrary put social flows, stops an goes in perspective like no other. His biggest flaw was to never mention the disservices of gold (wealth wars, aggressive mining, etc) but he did emphasize and stipulate the emancipation from it and failing that, optimal distribution. Zube's archive was meant to pave the wave towards Beckerath but the effect was to bury him under the 'freedom' and 'liberty' buzzsaw fallout and over of the day and rage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:47, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
