Kropotkin, however, is no avatar of Rousseau: his faith in technology to provide a modernist utopia is completely within an Enlightenment tradition that cannot include Rousseau. This is not to say that Bakunin turned Hegel into a materialist (as Marx did), or that Kropotkin transformed Darwin into a romantic figure, but the pattern of interference that is set up by the contradictory claims of romantic idealism and scientific materialism says a great deal about the anarchistic tradition. Indeed, the proletarian socialists dismissed the serf and peasant classes so dear to the anarchists as mere Lumpenproletariat.
Curiously, Bakunin's apocryphal call for sacrifice may have greater cultural implications than Kropotkin's historical call for service. It remains to be seen whether Kropotkin's faith in modernity and Page 41 his dislike of modernism pose a cultural problem; whether Emma Goldman's devotion to Ibsen and her promotion of anarchism are deeply related; whether the Ferrer Schools that sprang up in America and Europe in tribute to the assassinated anarchist Francisco Ferrer really espoused a cultural curriculum different from other leftist establishments; whether Benjamin Tucker's Unique Bookshop and Press in New York City was truly a cultural center or simply a propaganda factory, and so on.

Later, we shall have to consider the impact of such collectivism on culture.
