The Libertarian Struggle of the Black Movement on Feed 44

C4SS Feed 44 presents Valdenor Júnior‘s “The Libertarian Struggle of the Black Movement” read by Erick Vasconcelos and edited by Nick Ford.

Murray Rothbard attempted to establish a conversation between libertarianism and the New Left through the periodical Left and Right: A Journal of Libertarian Thought. Among the articles published, one of the best certainly is Rothbard’s own “The New Left and Liberty,” which showed how the freedom philosophy was ingrained in the methods of the New Left.

Given the Black Awareness Day on November 20th in Brazil, we can also highlight the characterization Rothbard gave of the black movement in the United States: Essentially libertarian in method and reasons. That was a time for civil rights struggles against segregating legislation in the USA. Rothbard claimed that in that scenario the New and the Old Left were like oil and water.
