Ralph Chaplin[edit]

I suppose "Paint 'er Red" and "Hey Polly" can be understood in anarchist and non-anarchist ways, but "Red November, Black November" and "Joe Hill (High head and back unbending...)" can't.

In The General Strike for Industrial Freedom, Chaplin avoids confusing his political positions with the union's. He states that "the future society will be organized on the basis of industrial administration rather than political government." He also distinguishes Wobbly Industrial Unionism from anarcho-syndicalism strictu sensu. Still looking here. Jacob Haller 22:27, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

I looked pretty hard, even before you added him to the list. If you find something, that'd be great. He was one of the good guys, and I'd like to his name here.--Cast 22:31, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
I can't find a direct citation, which is awkward. Jacob Haller 23:41, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
It's possible that he was never quoted as self-identifying as an anarchist; never did so because he was a socialist first and an anarchist sympathizer second; an essay in which he self-identified has been lost to history; or perhaps because he never considered self-identifying himself important. Whatever the case may be, we cannot add him without that source. It wouldn't be appropriate to "claim" him for anarchists now that he can't speak for his own opinion. Don't worry about it. If a citation exists, someone is bound to find it someday.--Cast 00:08, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
