Kropotkin certainly wrote unappealing (to say the least) words about Lenin; and so did Lenin about Kropotkin (in some of his famous works, he called Kropotkin an anarcho-chauvinist). The complexity of relationship between anarchists and communists cannot be reduced to approachable one-liners, and I tried to present the encounter somewhat neutrally (which I most likely didn't achieve in the light of my simplistic call to unity). I filmed this video three times and decided to just go with it. Learning historical context is incredibly important, and is wrought with uncertainty - how much was each account revised, how heavily did the narrator's bias influence the representation of facts, etc. There are few sources I am convinced are trustworthy, and reading theory to me, at this point, is somewhat less excruciating. Thanks for engaging!
