If left libertarians, individualist anarchists, mutualists, radical libertarians, and the like, ever needed to spontaneously order, this is the time. The Alliance of the Libertarian Left and the Center for a Stateless Society (C4SS) are seeking your help.
From November 13-16th in San Diego, California, the Libertalia Project will be hosting its annual Libertopia Festival. The weekend is aimed at creating a temporary, free community where people interested in the ideas of liberty can come together to learn, educate, network, and create. Now in its 5th year, Libertopia has become one of the biggest yearly gatherings of libertarians and anarchists.
Which is why the Alliance of the Libertarian Left (ALL), a project of the Molinari Institute, and a coalition of various left-leaning libertarians, is trying to get to Libertopia. ALL publishes books, magazines, and pamphlets, as well as op-eds syndicated to mainstream media outlets around the world, to spread the message of free markets without capitalist domination, and voluntary social order without the state.
$400 will get ALL a booth at Libertopia 2014 and give left libertarianism a voice at the festival. The opportunity to engage this year’s Libertopia attendees on the ideas of radical market anarchism and left libertarianism is priceless in the fight against statism.
In a separate, but equally important, event, C4SS, also a project of the Molinari Institute, and a left-wing market anarchist think tank is trying to become a sponsor of the 2015 International Students For Liberty Conference (ISFLC) from February 13-15 in Washington, DC. ISFLC is the year’s premier libertarian gathering, bringing together over 2000 libertarians last year alone.
Students For Liberty, and it’s annual International conference, are leading the way in the modern libertarian student movement – providing it’s hundreds of members with resources for libertarian activism and spreading the message of liberty to the thousands more in SFL’s global network. It’s no surprise, then, that C4SS is trying to sponsor this wonderful event.
C4SS utilizes academic studies, book reviews, op-eds, and social media to put left market anarchist ideas at the forefront of libertarianism and to eventually bring about a world where individuals are liberated from oppressive states, structural poverty, and social injustice. In only 8 years, C4SS has substantially grown into a successful think tank, making big waves among the modern libertarian movement, especially the students.
$500 gets C4SS sponsorship at ISFLC and each sponsor is guaranteed at least a table in the exhibit hall, 2 attendee registrations, and a listing in the program and webpage. Getting a significant market anarchist presence at the year’s biggest libertarian event is crucial to spreading these ideas and making anarchism a substantial, unafraid, and robust part of the liberty movement, instead of a timid minority.
While C4SS and ALL are barely a decade old, they have already achieved massive success with spreading left libertarian anarchist views. The market anarchist community is bigger and more vibrant than ever with our ideas spreading to other libertarians like wild fire. This fire needs to keep going and more wood needs to be piled on.
That’s where you come in.
Both the Alliance of the Libertarian Left and the Center for a Stateless Society are extremely close to affording sponsorship at Libertopia and ISFLC respectively but there is more to go. If you find these ideas worth exploring and you want a more diverse, intellectually stimulating libertarian community — whether you are a left market anarchist or you’re a conservative minarchist or you’re an anarcho-communist or anything in between — please share this post and donate if you can.
