God and the State

God and the State by Mikhail Bakunin
By: (1814-1876)

In "God and the State," Mikhail Bakunin provides a compelling critique of both religion and government, arguing that both institutions serve to oppress and control individuals. He challenges the idea of a higher power dictating human behavior and calls for the liberation of humanity from such restrictive ideologies.

Bakunin's writing is forceful and thought-provoking, making a strong case for the importance of individual freedom and autonomy. His argument that true freedom can only be achieved through the abolition of both religious and governmental authority is both radical and persuasive.

Overall, "God and the State" is a powerful and influential work that continues to resonate with readers today. Bakunin's uncompromising stance against oppression and his call for a more just and equitable society make this book essential reading for anyone interested in political philosophy and the nature of power.

Book Description:

Bakunin’s most famous work, published in various lengths, this version is the most complete form of the work published hitherto.

Originally titled “Dieu et l’état”, Bakunin intended it to be part of the second portion to a larger work named “The Knouto-Germanic Empire and the Social Revolution” (Knouto-Germanic Empire is in reference to a treaty betwixt Russia and Germany at the time), but the work was never completed.
