Paul Brown, “12 Months in New Harmony” (1827)

Paul Brown’s 12 Months in New Harmony is the classic exposé of Robert Owen’s American experiment, from the ruins of which a large number of the strains of American socialism and anarchism developed. Josiah Warren broke away from Owen’s socialism, as did the “Mutualist of 1826.” Paul Brown broke away in a different direction. He was, from all indications, a sincere and serious communist. He was also the author of several more radical works, which I hope to collect for the Libertarian Labyrinth soon. Stay tuned.
