Laurance Labadie’s “Objections to Communism”
Objections to Communism It places the inefficient on par with the efficient, the lazy with the industrious, and the thrifty with the extravagant. Therefore it places a premium on idleness and lacks spur to industry and thrift. It makes the celebate contribute for the support of the children of his procreative brother. It divides responsibility…
Laurance Labadie’s “Marxian Socialism”
Marxian Socialism Socialism can be explained partially by man’s eternal desire and faith in a better life to come [1]. The very attitude of dogmatism and cock-sureness brands Socialism as unscientific. The socialists hold an exaggerated idea of the importance of economics in the materialistic interpretation of history. They hold the incorrect labor-cost theory of…

 View or download a PDF copy of Eric Fleischmann’s C4SS Study here: Historical Materialism: A Brief Overview and Left-Libertarian Reinterpretation Introduction One of the most famous theories forwarded by Karl Marx is that of historical materialism—although Marx himself apparently never used that exact term in his work [1]. To put it succinctly, Merriam-Webster defines…
Taking Collectivity Apart
There is an expression in Afrikaans, om die dam onder die eend uit te ruk. Translated literally, it means “to pluck the pond out from under the duck,” to take a thing so far that it begins to miss its own point. The expression springs to mind because an obsession with groups of people literally…
Ang malabnaw na Kontra-Statismo ng mga Anarkistang Bulgar
Ni Spooky. Orihinal na artikulo: Vulgar Anarcho-Communism: Pacifying Anti-Statism, Hunyo 26, 2020. Salin ni Raj. Mahirap ibenta ang pakikibaka. Kadalasan, dala din naman ito ng mga panawagan para baguhin nag sistema, di lang sa pagmumungkahi ng “pagbabago” at simpleng pagboto. Mayroong iba—pero baka mas marami pa—na sinubukang palambutin yung talas ng pulitika nila. Kadalasan pinopomada…

An Anti-Statist Beginner’s Guide to (Taxation, Public Budgets, and) Participatory Budgeting
The most blunt and obvious anti-statist position regarding taxation and consequently public budgets (although the former is not the sole source of the latter) is their reduction or complete abolition, and this is often how it is treated amongst centrist and right-wing libertarians. For example, Murray Rothbard writes that the principled approach should be “to…
anarcho communisme en anarcho individualisme.
In alle interacties ga ik uit van mutualiteit. Mijn anarchisme is een individualisme en een mutualisme. Wat bedoel ik daarmee ? Eigenlijk is het vrij basaal allemaal. Als we een economische transactie aangaan, worden we er BEIDE beter van, dat is de bedoeling, het streven. We kunnen elkaar gewoon in de ogen blijven kijken. We…
Anarco-comunismo Volgare: Conciliare l’antistato
Di Spooky. Originale pubblicato il 28 giugno 2020 con il titolo Vulgar Anarcho-Communism: Pacifying Anti-Statism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. È difficile far passare proposte estreme. Le reazioni sono per certi versi scontate quando, invece di limitarsi a riforme e a “soluzioni condivise”, si propone una diversa organizzazione della società. Alcuni, forse troppi, hanno cercato di…
Vulgar Anarcho-Communism: Pacifying Anti-Statism
[Hear an in-depth discussion on this article and its topics in this episode of The Enragés] Radical positions are always a hard sell. To some extent, this is an inherent aspect of advocating any alternative system of social organization, instead of just proposing reform and “bipartisan solutions.” Some, perhaps too many, have attempted to dull…
The Problem of Scale in Anarchism and the Case for Cybernetic Communism
Note: In order to properly display some of the mathematics in this piece, it’s hosted here as a .pdf. Or, click the image below the introduction.
