Work is a crime - Herman J. Schuurman

Text by Herman Schuurman, 'Werken is misdaad', published in 1924 by the Dutch group 'De Moker', when Schuurman was a young anarchist participant in that group. This text is remarkable for its time; it expresses disgust towards work without laying claim to leisure time. It is against schooling, long strikes, against the transition period [for communism] and advocates stealing and sabotage.
