Malatesta is difficult to place within the spectrum of the various political camps within anarchism both because his politics changed over time and because he did not identify himself strongly with any of the various groupings.

His constant work as an organizer and speaker embodied his ideals of free association: for Malatesta, it was useful to join an organization only for the purpose of doing something with that group of people. There was no sense in belonging to a group simply to belong.

Famous quotes containing the words beliefs and/or political:

    Our inherent human charity and our religious beliefs will be taxed to the limit. No poor, rural, weak, or black person should ever have to bear the additional burden of being deprived of the opportunity of an education, a job, or simple justice.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    History suggests that capitalism is a necessary condition for political freedom. Clearly it is not a sufficient condition.
    Milton Friedman (b. 1912)
