Albert and a group of other anarchists decided to register as a conscientious objector during the Second World War, but because they were not pacifists, the plan was to cause a fuss and then when the draft papers came, enlist.

Albert Meltzer was one of the most enduring and respected torchbearers of the international anarchist movement in the second half of the twentieth century.
Albert was vehemently opposed to the re-packaging and marketing of anarchism as a broad church for academia-oriented quietists and single-issue pressure groups.
To Albert, all privilege was the enemy of human freedom; not just the privileges of capitalists, kings, bureaucrats and politicians but also the petty aspirations of opportunists and careerists among the rebels themselves.

 Obituary for Albert Meltzer, British anarchist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
I know Albert would turn in his grave, but I found this funny, because to me the two of them were quite similar.
My second memory of Albert is of him snoring loudly as we watched a video of the EZLN in Mexico, which unfortunately was missing the soundtrack.
The one thing about Albert that can not be disputed is his dedication to anarchism and his belief that a better world could be built, better than the one that we now live in.

Mr Meltzer, who had, as he wanted, a funeral with a jazz band and a stand-up comedian, disliked the Freedom Press and had criticised it for years in his anarchist paper, the Black Flag, calling it liberal and pacifist.
Fellow anarchists quizzed Meltzer about his combination of anarchism with his job at The Daily Telegraph, which he had defended as being that of a mere worker at the capitalist mill.
Stuart Christie, Meltzer's co-author and executor of his will, said at his funeral that the anarchist was "the arch-stone, the link in the chain".

Albert Meltzer and other activists from this group joined Stuart Christie on his return from imprisonment in Francoist Spain (1967) in launching the Anarchist Black Cross (ABC).
Albert Meltzer commented 'As one could not fight a by-election for a mainstream party without incurring a loss, I do not see how a publishing venture against the political tide could conceivably be expected to pay its way' (3).
Albert Meltzer bemoaned the fact that 'the amount of essays in one Cienfuegos Press Anarchist Review would have made a couple of dozen pamphlets and a book or two' (6) but perhaps it is this abundance that explains its appeal.

 Albert Meltzer 1920-1996 — Kate Sharpley Library
Albert was often accused of 'sectarianism' because he opposed the idea of an 'open door policy' for Anarchism: that anyone claiming to be an Anarchist should be taken at their word.
He also opposed what he called the 'package-deal Left', sadly still in evidence today, where having a 'line' which can be used to march the papersellers to the top of the hill, and the next and the next, takes the place of principles or the idea of human liberation.
Albert has left many legacies to the Anarchist movement, from a frank and justified scepticism of the value of academic 'experts' on or media exposes about Anarchism, to a supply of scathing anecdotes about most political ideologies.

I Couldn't Paint Golden Angels is a lively, witty account of what he claims would have been the commonplace life of a worker but for the fact that he spent sixty years in anarchist activism.

Tottenham born, Meltzer (born January 7, 1920 - died May 7, 1996) founded the Anarchist Black Cross —; a now international support group for political prisoners — edited Black Flag and spent some 60 years in the Anarchist movement.
Although he could be a grumpy bugger, Meltzer is a great example of how to remain committed to your beliefs whilst still living your life - he came into the Anarchist movement as a young man surrounded by the old, and died in it an old man surrounded by the young.

Meltzer deftly handles the kinds of criticisms of anarchism made by social democrats, liberal democrats, Marxists, fascists, trade unionists, feminists and capitalists.
The book exceptionally adresses the criticism that individuals would be imperiled in societies that operate without the coercive force of law.
Meltzer rightly argues that individuals would in fact be safer in an anarchist society and that governments actually reduce personal safety by assigning that responsibility to a set of experts (e.g.

 Review of Albert Meltzers I couldn't paint Golden Angels
There is a long tradition of personal autobiographies written by ageing activists in the anarchist movement about their experiences and motivations.
Albert's book is a valuable addition to the archive of anarchist history, not because its an accurate portrayal of the movement in this period (it's extremely partisan and anecdotal) but because it reminds us of the reason and motivation we have for being anarchists in the first place.
Also among the many brief mentions of events are many that would encourage you to try and find out more and a valuable reminder of the way anarchists have been written out of even recent history.

Albert was vehemently opposed to the repackaging of anarchism as a broad church for academia orientated quietists and single-issue pressure groups.
introduction to Albert's autobiography "I Couldn't Paint Golden Angels", it was the very discovery of class struggle anarchism through the so-called sectarianism of Black Flag that convinced many anarchists of his and subsequent generations to become active.
Albert will be fondly remembered by those of us whose lives he touched.

 Finding Datura Zine » Books   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Meltzer offers a brief history of the Anarchist movement, the “inalienable tenets of Anarchism,” a definition of authoritarian society and what an Anarchist is to do is such a culture, and ideas on how an Anarchist society would come about.
It goes without saying that Meltzer brushes off each argument and sticks to his vision of a free society.
I would suggest this book for those individuals sincerely interested in Anarchism, but for those who are simply infatuated with the idea of a free society this book may confuse or worse turn the reader away from the movement.
