The Enragés, a production of the Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS.org), features questions and casual conversations with authors about recent pieces they’ve published on the C4SS site. Hosted by Joel Williamson, this podcast will focus exclusively on the works of C4SS authors and will give listeners a chance to get to know these thinkers better. We'll regularly be taking listener questions too on Patreon! (Patreon.com/C4SSdotorg) The name of the podcast comes from the loosely affiliated anarchistic and proto-socialist group known in English as the “Enraged Ones,” who split from the Jacobin Club during the French Revolution in their radical demands against monopolists and support for the French lower class. To give a glimpse into their still-relevant views, Jacques Roux—in his 1793 Manifesto of the Enragés—states: "Freedom is nothing but a vain phantom when one class of men can starve another with impunity. Equality is nothing but a vain phantom when the rich, through monopoly, exercise the right of life or death over their like. The republic is nothing but a vain phantom when the counter-revolution can operate every day through the price of commodities, which three quarters of all citizens cannot afford without shedding tears."
