О деньгах, картах и территории
Kevin Carson. On Capital, Maps, and Terrain. November 1st, 2023. На днях я наткнулся на скрин этого классического старого твита Артура Чи: Каждый раз, когда такое высказывание появляется в социальных сетях, оно неизбежно вызывает огромное количество отзывов типа «рабочие не смогли бы ничего сделать, если бы им пришлось самостоятельно изготавливать запчасти и орудия труда.» К…
On Capital, Maps, and Terrain
I recently stumbled across a screenshot of this classic old tweet from Arthur Chu: Whenever such an observation appears on social media, it inevitably provokes a storm of responses along the lines of “workers wouldn’t be able to make anything if they had to make their own parts and tools.” For example, as part of…

“Domanda e Offerta” col Cavillo
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 20 maggio 2023 con il titolo “Supply and Demand”: A Quibble. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Scrive Shi Sanyazi sul sito del Hampton Institute: “I prezzi delle case dipendono dai poteri di classe e dal profitto, non dalla domanda ed offerta”: La verità è che…, in quanto affittuari, dipendiamo dall’equilibrio…
“Supply and Demand:” A Quibble
At the Hampton Institute, Shi Sanyazi argues that “Housing is Determined By Class Power and Profit, Not ‘Supply and Demand’”:  “The truth is that… our conditions as tenants are determined by the balance of class power, not the balance of supply and demand.  I know what they mean, of course. In the economic discourse between…

The Concentration of Capital
The Concentration of Capital: The Benefits of Non-Capitalist Markets An inherent problem of capitalism (and maybe its greatest) is the concentration of capital. Let us look at it in a critical light. The concentration of capital is a direct result of the capitalist construction of legal property: contrary to (for example) freedom of expression, which…
The Organic Emergence of Property from Reputation
The Organic Emergence of Property from Reputation Property as a Useful and Necessary Toil, Not a God For centuries radicals have debated alternative property systems, and I’m glad we’re having these conversations. But what has been consistently disappointing about them is how little they generally seek to explore the underlying roots of “property” itself. To be sure, all…
If You Can’t Knock Down Left-Libertarianism, Knock Down Straw
Somehow left-libertarianism (or at least my article “What Is Left-Libertarianism?” Center for a Stateless Society, June 15, 2014) has come to the attention of Heather Johnson, a Libertarian candidate for Senate in Minnesota. And not in a good way. “Left-libertarianism,” she says on her Facebook page, “is as much bull***t as right-libertarianism,” because it “violates……
La Fiorina Dice di non Essere un “Politico di Professione”
L’argomento forte di Carly Fiorina, come candidato repubblicano alla presidenza per il 2016, è che lei è esterna alla politica. Atteggiandosi a vero sfidante di Hillary Clinton, la Fiorina non perde occasione per accusarla di essere un politico di carriera. E ha ragione. Durante una recente apparizione su Fox News, ha citato un sondaggio secondo…
Fiorina Claims She’s Not Part of the “Professional Political Class”
Carly Fiorina’s main talking point throughout her time as 2016 Republican presidential candidate has been that she is an outsider.  Posturing herself as Hilary Clinton’s real challenger, Fiorina takes every opportunity to accuse Clinton of being a career politician.  On this, Fiorina is right.  During a recent Fox News appearance, Fiorina cited a poll that…
Greece: If You’re Taking Out the Trash, Don’t Forget the Garbage
I. The Nonexistent Ethical Dilemma The showdown between Greece and the EU is one of those events that brings out in stark contrast the dividing line between libertarians whose main concern is genuine economic freedom, and the sort of libertarian whose priority is the interests of big business and the propertied classes. In an exchange…

The Question Michael Lind Just Won’t Answer
Last year at Salon Michael Lind asked “The question libertarians just can’t answer” (June 4): “Why are there no libertarian countries?… If libertarianism was a good idea, wouldn’t at least one country have tried it?” He got some answers — the best of them from us free market libertarians of the left, who consider ourselves critics of…

C4SS Feed 44 presents Cory Massimino‘s “Private Property, A Pretty Good Option” read by Stephen Leger and edited by Nick Ford.

What’s Stossel Supposed to be Defending, Again?
I coined the term “vulgar libertarianism” several years back to describe reflexive mainstream libertarian defenses of the existing corporate capitalist system as if it were the free market, and using “free market” principles to justify the evils of the corporate economy. I recently saw one of the worst examples of this phenomenon ever, courtesy of…
