    Diggerism is a proto-socialist and anarchist ideology of The "True Levellers" or "Diggers", he is similar to Ancom.png Anarcho-Communism, but much more agrarian, as it existed in a pre-capitalist, pre-industrial society. He advocates a society made up of agrarian, egalitarian communes based upon the idea of "common land". He is a deeply religious Protestant. The rights of the peasantry are deeply important to him.

    History

    Diggers

    Diggers are a group of agrarian communists who flourished in England in 1649–50 and were led by Gerrard Winstanley and William Everard. In April 1649 about 20 poor men assembled at St. George’s Hill, Surrey, and began to cultivate the common land. These Diggers held that the English Civil Wars had been fought against the king and the great landowners; now that Charles I had been executed, land should be made available for the very poor to cultivate. (Food prices had reached record heights in the late 1640s.) The numbers of the Diggers more than doubled during 1649. Their activities alarmed the Commonwealth government and roused the hostility of local landowners, who were rival claimants to the common lands. The Diggers were harassed by legal actions and mob violence, and by the end of March 1650 their colony was dispersed. The Diggers themselves abjured the use of force. The Diggers also called themselves True Levelers, but their communism was denounced by the leaders of the Levelers.
