Edward Carpenter: “Non-Governmental Society” and “Exfoliation”

I’ve been putting together pdf files of some of the texts I used to sell in pamphlet form, as I slowly but surely rearrange the new Libertarian Labyrinth site. Today, for your reading pleasure, the new additions are two essay by Edward Carpenter. “Non-Governmental Society” is a fine exposition of anarchism, though its author didn’t use the label. “Exfoliation” is an interesting period piece of evolutionary thought, for those who don’t mind a little Lamarck (or even Whitman) with their Darwin. Carpenter was a truly fine writer, and these are among my favorites from him. Enjoy!
