Abstract

René Berthier, The State, Law and Legitimacy A revolutionary critique of social exploitation cannot be limited to a simple description of the mechanisms, of capitalist society and the function of the state. It also cannot be limited to moral condamnation or to a call to revolt against an intolerable situation. More than ever, it is clear that the vast majority of people continue to tolerate an unacceptable situation because they do not see any alternative to it. A revolutionary project can only be credible if it represents a legitimacy greater than does the dominant class. Although anarchism is rarely considered a theory and practice tending towards the creation of a new legal system, this aspiration is nevertheless central in the writings of its greatest theorists and its prominant activists.
