Homage to Catalonia - George Orwell

Though the POUM were socialists, he wrote "as far as my purely personal preferences went I would have liked to join the Anarchists." His vivid descriptions of classless anarchist Barcelona following the revolution and terrorised Stalinist Barcelona after the counter-revolution are a timeless reminder that a 'revolutionary state' is a contradiction in terms.
