Syndicalism | True Anarchism | Propaganda of the Deed | Eight Hour Work Day

Propaganda of the Deed is the belief that one decisive violent act can awaken individuals to take action. The idea arose after the invention of dynamite, which enabled an individual to cause severe damage. Actively endorsed by anarchist Johann Most, the concept fueled international terror during the end of the 19th century, with the assassinations of monarchs and heads of state. Anarchist Leon Czolgosz assassinated President William McKinley in 1901.
