[color=blue]the communists proved that they could reach people through this method.</font color=blue>
<br>They didn't reach people through that method. They reached people by sabotaging a popular revolution, creating a totalitarian state, and then using that sabotage to convince people to follow them.
<br>[color=blue]I'm talking about how he took the communist ideas from all around, put them in one short book, and made a serious impact on the world.</font color=blue>
<br>Marx didn't do that. The Communist Manifesto did not have a big impact when it was written, it was ignored for decades. What made him famous was a really long book called Das Capital, which many people find difficult to read. Much of Marxist literature is unnecessarily complicated, long, and difficult to read, often written for an academic audience and/or using specialized terms that non-radicals don't use often ("bourgeoisie" "valorization" "dialectical" "commodification" "alienation" etc). In fact, on the whole anarchist literature tends to be easier to understand for the layperson than Marxist theory. There have been many introductions to anarchism written (including my "Basic Principles of Anarchism"), some good and some bad, some short and some long. Perhaps a better one could be written, but I don't think writting the best intro ever written is by itself the key to building a mass movement. The authoritarian socialist movement was a complete failure, we shouldn't be imitating them.
<br>[color=blue]Although there is already alot of great anarchist lliterature, most of it is published by people like AK Press, who can't get the books out to the public. I know it would be difficult to find one, but we need to find a publisher who can make our ideas go into the mainstream.</font color=blue>
<br>Mainstream media, bookstores, etc. are controlled by corporations and the state. We want to overthrow them, so it's not surprising that our writings are not allowed in the mainstream. If we managed to break their controll over the media, bookstores, etc. we would already be half-way to the revolution, new intro or no new intro. And doing that is far more difficult than writing really good anarchist literature.
