For the meeting on the 24th, when we will be talking about the Diggers, the link for the writing that I would recommend is http://www.rogerlovejoy.co.uk/philosophy/diggers/diggers2.htm
It is the piece by Gerrard Winstanley, The True Levellers Standard Advanced OR, The State of Community Opened, and Presented to the Sons of Men.
It has been described as the Christian Communist Manifesto.
Here are a couple other links that those interested in the topic may enjoy:
A song made of Diggers’ words performed by Chumbawamba on their album English Rebel Songs:
A podcast about the Diggers that I personally enjoyed and found as a nice overview/introduction:
