Come NON Criticare i Monopoli
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 3 agosto 2021 con il titolo How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.

E ainda assim você usa essas plataformas malígnas da Big Tech. Que curioso!
De Kevin Carson. Artigo original: And Yet You Use Those Evil Big Tech Platforms. Curious!, de 16 de setembro 2020. Traduzido para o português por Estefano Enrico. É comum que “libertários” de direita ataquem — com alguma justificativa — a estupidez daqueles que equiparam a oposição a uma lei ou agência governamental com a oposição…

How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly
Liz Wolfe, in recent weeks, seems to have displaced Elizabeth Nolan Brown as the chief tech platform apologist at Reason. In her most recent article on this theme, “Google CEO Sundar Pichai Is Right: Companies That Dominate Today May Be Gone Tomorrow” (July 26), the general lines of her argument are simple: “Today’s Big Tech…

Deplatforming Parler will have consequences for which we must immediately prepare
Two days after the American far right’s failed fascist coup on January 6th, 2021 that left five people dead in Washington, DC, Twitter (finally) permanently banned the would-be dictator responsible for inciting the mob from their platform. Shortly thereafter, the social media network most closely affiliated with the racist reactionaries, Parler, was kicked off its…
Imagining an Optimistic Cyber-Future
Mastering most things humans do requires lifetimes of practice. Woodworking, gardening, and painting are just a few crafts whose histories stretch back thousands of years. But modern telecommunication, the act of communicating nearly instantaneously with someone from afar, is different. Its history is so short that there is relatively little of it: the very first…
An Anarchist Take on Antitrust Laws: Dangers and Possibilities
Monopolies are pretty much universally bad. This is an uncontroversial position amongst anarchists who principally define themselves in opposition to the state, which Max Weber, in “Politics as Vocation,” defines as the monopoly upon force and the approval of the use of force in a geographic area. Benjamin Tucker, the great American individualist anarchist, defines…
Internet Offriva Libertà, Noi Abbiamo Scelto la Servitù Aziendale
Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Originale: The Internet Offered Us Freedom, We Chose Corporate Rule, 13 ottobre 2020. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. A detta di cypherpunk e cripto-anarchici, una cosa è chiara: internet ci ha offerto la libertà. I movimenti open-source e peer-to-peer (p2p) prosperano ancora in qualche angolino di internet. Vero. Ma molti di noi…
A Internet nos Ofereceu Liberdade, Mas Nós Escolhemos a Regra Corporativa
Leia qualquer um dos escritos clássicos dos cypherpunks ou dos cripto-anarquistas e uma coisa é certa: a internet nos ofereceu liberdade. Embora os movimentos de código aberto e ponto a ponto (p2p) ainda estejam vivos e bem em certos cantos da Internet, a maioria de nós escolheu a regra corporativa. Embora as criptomoedas nos ofereçam…
The Internet Offered Us Freedom, We Chose Corporate Rule
Read any of the classic cypherpunk or crypto-anarchist writings and one thing is clear: the internet offered us freedom. While the open source and peer-to-peer (p2p) movements are still alive and well in certain corners of the internet, most of us have chosen corporate rule instead. While cryptocurrency offered us a medium of exchange that…
E Però ti Servi di quei Mostri Cattivi
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 16 settembre 2020 con il titolo And Yet You Use Those Evil Big Tech Platforms. Curious! Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Capita spesso che un libertario di destra denunci, con qualche giustificazione, la stupidità di chi pensa che opporsi a qualche legge o istituzione statale significhi opporsi a qualche valore…
And Yet You Use Those Evil Big Tech Platforms. Curious!
It’s common for right-libertarians to attack — with some justification — the stupidity of those who equate opposing a law or government agency with opposing some value or goal in its name. Wanting to abolish the Department of Education, for example, doesn’t mean you’re against education. But right libertarians are guilty of a somewhat related…
Big Government Has Made Big Tech Way Too Powerful
Robert Reich contends that “Big Tech Has Become Way Too Powerful” (New York Times, September 20) — and so, to curb its power, big government must become way more powerful. Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google, like the railroad and oil trusts of the Gilded Age, are to Reich the natural result of market consolidation. Retelling the civics-textbook story of…
