Wat Is Anarcho-Mutualisme?
Anarcho-mutualisme is wat anarcho-kapitalisme eigenlijk had moeten zijn. Een mutualist is een échte marktanarchist, terwijl een anarcho-kapitalist slechts iemand is die niet weet dat hij/zij een mutualist zou moeten willen zijn. Eigenlijk is mutualisme de éérste vorm van anarchisme. Het is immers bedacht door Pierre Joseph Proudhon, die de eerste was om zichzelf ‘een anarchist’…
Black Market Mutualism and the Soul of Society
When anarchists talk about counter-economic action, we envisage exchanging goods and services independent of state jurisdiction. Our purpose is to press the bounds of the regulatory state. It doesn’t matter if our efforts are illegal per se. Legality is not a moral prescription. A proper concern for institution building is uncommon in counter-economic philosophy. The…
The Attractions of Geo-Mutualism
The Attractions of Geo-Mutualism Appraisers Begone! I am neither a philosopher, nor an economist, nor a political scientist, and so I’ve found myself a bit out of my scholarly depth in this symposium. Prior to these exchanges, I had only slight understanding of Georgist land use proposals, and it had not occurred to me that…
The Practicability of Mutualism
…Mutualism is a social system based on reciprocal and non-invasive relations among free individuals. The Mutualist standards are: Individual: Equal freedom for each — without invasion of others. Economic: Untrammeled reciprocity, implying freedom of exchange and contract — without monopoly or privilege. Social: Complete freedom of voluntary association — without coercive organization… The libertarian ideal…

C4SS Feed 44 presents Grant A. Mincy‘s “Market Anarchism for Network Mutualism” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford. The market anarchist seeks differing and competing modes of social organization. Market anarchism maintains replacing the state with a decentralized society is desirable because of the feasibility of, and the liberating principles innate to, left-wing free market…
Market Anarchism for Network Mutualism
Human communication systems offer incredible insight to the creative nature of human beings, spontaneous social order and emerging markets within our societies. For the first time in human history we are sharing ideas from the local to the global in scale. With the advent of the Internet, social media and growing social networks, communication costs are at…

M. George van der Meer: We are now approaching a breaking point, a culmination of long-unfolding trends that will witness the old forces of rigid hierarchy and centrality collide with the dynamism of the networked, freed market.
Essential Mutualism and Citizenship – A Queensland Perspective
We owe it to ourselves to become strong against such predators.
Italian Mutualist Domenico Letizia on Mutualism as Alternative to Welfare State
Italian mutualist Domenico Letizia, in “Un’ analisi storica del mutualism, possibile “sostituto libertario” del welfare moderno,” (Istituto de Politica, Oct. 23, 2011), considers historic European working class mutualist organization as a model for anti-state welfarism.
When Warmed Over Georgism Becomes Neoliberalism
I have a personal rule — I think you should never review a book that you strongly disagree with or strongly agree with. If you entirely agree, then a “review” would be nothing more than an echo. But if you strongly disagree there’s also little point to writing a review, the disagreements cannot be isolated…
Quale Economia dei Lavoretti?
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 14 febbraio 2016 con il titolo Which Way for the Gig Economy? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Il termine “economia della condivisione” talvolta è usato come sinonimo di “economia dei lavoretti”. Quest’ultimo è sicuramente più rispondente alla realtà, dato che “economia della condivisione” fa pensare a cose come cooperazione e reciprocità,…

Avoiding the Blame — What a Focus on Grain Obscures
James C. Scott’s latest book, Against the Grain: A Deep History of the Earliest States, is sure to become a classic and a brick in the wall of core anarchist theory. It covers somewhat different but complementary ground to Peter Gelderloo’s Worshiping Power: An Anarchist History Of Early State Formation. I have some significant critiques…
Antinomies of Democracy
I thought I had pretty well had my say on the subject of democracy and anarchy, but comparing the material I’ve written to the contributions I’ve submitted, I see a couple of responses languishing among the drafts. I also find that the real impasse in my exchanges with Wayne Price leaves me considerably less than…
Comments on the Other Lead Essays
In “The Regime of Liberty,” Gabriel Amadej advocates the Proudhonian ideal – reflected in the dictum “property is liberty” – of some individual sphere of last resort where means of subsistence are secure from the will of the majority: “Democracy disrupts this balance and places society under the unaccountable domain of community.
