Prax Guerrero on the Method of Revolution

After working tirelessly during 1906-1909 to stage a mexican revolution, Guerrero explains his methods through a circulated pamphlet

“When we resolved to fling ourselves into the fight it is because we have ideas very well placed in our heads.  The man who thinks and feels the ideas, does not fear sacrifices: he goes to them willing to give his life.  You must have seen that I am uncompromising, that many times I argue details; that I appear obstinate and meticulous, and that  I am not in conformity with the disciplined organization of the rebelious groups.  I believe that a popular revolution should be spontaneous, without leaders.  If I address you in this manner, it is because I believe that you truly love liberty… I am an anarchist; I don’t fight because I hate government, but for the love of a free humanity… Our revolution must show the manner of liberating not governing”
taken from “La vida heroica”
