Some of the earliest examples of communist thought, introduced by Tony Benn.
At the end of the English Civil War,
Gerrard Winstanley and his comrades, known as Diggers, went to St
George’s Hill to farm the common land and to distribute the food among
themselves. Winstanley’s extraordinary writings from this period have
remained a huge influence for many on the Left and are cited as some of
the earliest examples of communist thought.
Legendary voice of the Left Tony Benn examines Winstanley’s work and
argues that, as we face an ever greater enclosure of the commons, he can
still inspire us to turn our world upside down.
