Si le pides a un economista que te diga sectores en donde el Estado debe involucrarse, su respuesta probablemente sea que los Estados deben proveer “bienes públicos”. Un bien público…

Muammar Gaddafi’s Green Book: The Good, The Bad, and The Weird
Muammar Gaddafi was, is, and always will be a controversial figure. Though his rise from Bedouin nomad to ruler of Libya is impressive, many of the things he did while in control of the country were unquestionably authoritarian and criminal. However, Gaddafi began as a sort of liberator. He joined the Libyan military in the…

“Checkmate Anarchists”
“Checkmate Anarchists: Humans Will Always Create Structures and Laws” One objection the anarchist will often hear is that a general set of anarchist principles is appealing in theory, but in practice human affairs seem to always lead to organized decision-making, the establishment of rules and laws and, consequently, the creation of hierarchy and institutional power….
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…

De Eric Fleischmann. Artículo original: An Anti-Statist Beginner’s Guide to (Taxation, Public Budgets, and) Participatory Budgeting. Traducido en español por Diego Avila. La posición antiestatista más contundente y obvia en relación con los impuestos y, en consecuencia, con los presupuestos públicos (aunque los primeros no son la única fuente de los segundos) es su reducción…

Interview of Dr. Chris Hables Gray by Hank Pellissier Should California, Scotland, Catalonia, Hawaii, Kurdistan and other regions secede for independence?

Relitigating Decentralization: Response to M Black
I must confess no small horror on reading M Black’s contribution to this Mutual Exchange. A self-professed anarchist, defending centralization? I would normally let such arguments fall on their face alone, but if we are to platform them in this exchange I feel a moral obligation to reiterate basic reality. My response will be divided…
Manuale Antistato del Bilancio Partecipato (nonché Finanze Pubbliche e Tassazione)
Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale pubblicato il 28 luglio 2020 con il titolo An Anti-Statist Beginner’s Guide to (Taxation, Public Budgets, and) Participatory Budgeting. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. In materia di tassazione e conseguente finanza pubblica (anche se la prima non è l’unica fonte della seconda), l’atteggiamento più drastico e evidente, diffuso tra i centristi e…
Revealed Preferences and Deliberation: A Defense
Emmi Bevensee’s article “Social-Anarchism and Parallel Economic Computation” is an excellent and important introduction to the challenges that complexity poses for economic planning. I think Emmi’s conclusion—that we need to sketch what the limits of planning are and pursue alternative mechanisms beyond this point—is a good one, as is pointing out that problems arise when…
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…
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…
The Tithe as an Element of Economic Democracy: Decentralizing Collectivization
Introduction: Towards a Combined Anarchist and Communist Approach to the Question of Central Economic Planning This essay deals with the question of central economic planning, or minimum viable economic planning (MVEP) from both anarchist and communist perspectives. The central operative terms will be collectivization, or the process of pooling resources to be shared at the…
Vulgar Anarcho-Communism: Pacifying Anti-Statism
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 edges of their political labels by wrapping their ideology in broader language, using “common sense”…
When Warmed Over Georgism Becomes Neoliberalism
I have a personal rule — I think you should never review a book that you strongly disagree with or strongly agree with. If you entirely agree, then a “review” would be nothing more than an echo. But if you strongly disagree there’s also little point to writing a review, the disagreements cannot be isolated…
