Welcome to our Summer edition with its theme of Belief/Disbelief/Unbelief.

Our essays don’t so much investigate beliefs themselves as much as belief systems, our cognitive constructions which determine our perception of reality. Beliefs can either chain us to repressive ideas or free us with visions that go beyond dominant paradigms. The entire modern era has been one of contestation as to which belief systems will rule in societies–ones that link us to submission and acquiescence to hierarchal authority, or those which rebel against them and eliminate the categories of rulers and ruled. Comments are welcome on the essays which follow.

This publication, now in its 45th year, continues to exist only because of the interest of subscribers and the generosity of our Sustainers and other contributors. Some of the latter may include a few dollars when renewing their subscriptions; others have made donations which almost make our knees quiver. But, all represent the best of mutual aid as well as expressing a desire to assure that the ideas and vision of anarchism are maintained in this small publication.
