Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the radical package promoted by the group that put on the Ferrer performance. It focuses on the network?s treatment of certain key themes?among them, workers? education, exploitation, social justice, class consciousness, and anticlericalism?and these themes? progressive radicalization. It argues that, by 1910, the group in question had inclined more consciously to the left, fine-tuning its ideas to contemporary European and international leftist ideologies and symbols. The chapter underlines the very local dimension and resonance of certain themes promoted by this network: its criticism of local clergies and missionaries; its views regarding the specific administrative status of Mount Lebanon between 1900 and 1914; the effects of the 1908 constitutional revolution in the Ottoman Empire; and European economic and political encroachments in Syria. It analyzes the ideas put forth by this network. It also introduces its members, and draws a sociological portrait of this group.

Keywords: Ferrer performance; Mount Lebanon; Ottoman Empire; political encroachments; radicalism; socialism
