Painted portrait of French anarchist and journalist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon.

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon

(1809 - 1865)

Having announced, “I am an anarchist” in his 1840 pamphlet, What Is Property?, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon was hauled into court in 1842 for publishing a sequel, Warning to the Proprietors. He was acquitted of all charges on account of his opaque prose; the jury could not understand what his arguments were about.
