    I'd rather discuss racism and white privilege.

      if you don't want to explain yourself. The fact is, if you're like so many around here (see comment I originally replied to), I doubt that you have much of a clue about anarchism, whether "European" or otherwise.

      The fact is, Spain has a long tradition of anarchism, including peasant anarchist influences, and this tradition would have been acutely known by Mexican anarchists.

      Unlike Marxism, peasants have had a place in anarchist uprisings. Spain has a history of medieval peasant villages that were traditionally based on anarchist concepts.

      Spain, in fact, is the source of one of the most often discussed examples of anarchist successes, during the Spanish Civil War.
