Interview with Kevin Carson on Hermitix Podcast
Kevin Carson was recently featured on the Hermitix podcast to discuss anarchism, post-capitalism, and organization. Hermitix is a podcast focusing on one-on-one interviews relating to fringe philosophy, obscure theory, weird lit, underappreciated thinkers and movements, and that which historically finds itself ‘outside’ the academic canon. The aim of the podcast is to allow autodidactic thinkers,…
Meet Your New Coordinating Director
Let me start by saying this has been a long time coming. When Will brought up the idea of my taking over as coordinating director at last September’s Please Try This At Home conference, it wasn’t the first time the idea had been raised. I did, however, want to wait until I felt I could…
Introducing The Left Market Anarchist Zinelibrary
The great advantage of the anarchist movement is our decentralization, but without resilient protocols and networks we’re always at risk of losing pieces of our history and knowledge. There have been a number of compilations of anarchist and left-market anarchist pamphlets and zines over the years, and unfortunately most of them have decayed or fallen…

Help Us Develop “Even Lower Rings Of Hell”
This week we celebrated the 12th anniversary since the founding of the Center for a Stateless Society. It’s been a wild ride, with many ups and downs. But somehow we’ve managed to build one of the most successful sites of anarchist discourse since the journal Liberty shuttered in 1908. We have become, as weird as…
Director’s Report: Summer 2018
This summer saw an array of developments at the Center, and we’re on the edge of revealing even more.

United Against the Prison-Industrial Complex: Statement of Solidarity With Prison Strikers
The cages are rattling again all across the nation. Today marks the launch of yet another nationwide prison strike.

Director’s Report: Spring 2018
At its inception C4SS focused on getting timely editorials with an anarchist focus published in newspapers around the world. However, with the slow decline of print media, many of the community newspapers that served as our bread and butter have dried up. Meanwhile, thankfully, our profile has risen as an incubator of theory and discourse….

Two New Publications
My chapter on “Anarchism and Libertarianism” is forthcoming in Nathan Jun, ed., Brill’s Companion to Anarchism and Philosophy (Leiden: Brill, 2017), at the usual insane Brill price. In the chapter I explore the relationship between libertarianism (in the free-market sense) and the anarchist movement, including the question whether anarcho-capitalism counts as a genuine form of…

Howdy, folks. It’s been… a rough week.
