Anationalism Cosmopolitanism Antinationalism
This website was created for speakers of Esperanto and that is why most of its content is in Esperanto. Please note, however, that the websites that can be accessed from the links page (look for "LIGOJ" in the menu on the left) contain content in a variety of languages.
The name of the site describes the subject matter it deals with, although the term "anationalism" in the title needs to be explained: it refers to an antinationalist and cosmopolitan concept that is indigenous to the Esperanto community. It was formulated by E. Lanti, also the co-founder of the Sennacieca Asocio Tutmonda (World Anational Association), a politically heterogenous organization of (mostly) left-leaning and working-class Esperantists, which was founded after World War I. One of Lanti's works, the Manifesto de la Sennaciistoj, is available on the site.
