On the Labor Theory(s) of Value
The labor theory of value or LTV is, according to Wikipedia, “a theory of value that argues that the economic value of a good or service is determined by the total amount of ‘socially necessary labor’ required to produce it.” This theory of value was popular among early liberal economists like Adam Smith and David…

Materialism and Thick Libertarianism
Two years ago, I gave a presentation titled “Prerequisites for Freedom: An Individualist Anarchist Perspective” to a philosophy discussion group, in which I talked about the connection between thick libertarianism and 19th century North American individualist anarchism and how progressive and liberatory values are necessary for genuine and necessarily anti-capitalist individualism.

“Il Socialismo Marxiano”, di Laurance Labadie
Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale pubblicato il 9 giugno 2022 con il titolo Laurance Labadie’s “Marxian Socialism”. Traduzione italiana di Enrico Sanna.
