ANCAP
Goed, de problemen met anarcho kapitalisme. Of ‘anarcho’ kapitalisme, vanuit individueel anarchistische (linkse) hoek. Ik noem zeven problemen. De zeven zonden van het anarcho kapitalisme ? 1 Kapitalisme biedt de mogelijkheid om extreem rijk te worden. Rijk zijn, is niet hetzelfde als vrijheid. Je hebt zeer rijke mensen, die zich onvrij voelen. Gevangen in hun…
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…
Defense in a Stateless Society
A week before the writing of this article, I wrote another that stated that we should privatize the police. When people hear that, they think of the anarcho-capitalist idea of the same name. The difference between that and mine is monumental. The AnCap idea is to have communities or, more likely, corporations hire a police…
Combat Illiberalism
Today marks the 80th anniversary of then-aspiring tyrant Mao Tse-tung’s “Combat Liberalism.” In that short pamphlet Mao outlines eleven ways that liberal attitudes might manifest themselves within an anti-liberal revolutionary movement like his. Broadly, Mao characterizes the liberal attitude as an orientation towards “unprincipled peace” and petty egotism. The pamphlet’s recurring theme is one of…
Radical Liberalism: The Soul of Libertarianism
Libertarianism has lost sight of its soul. This has grown clearer and clearer since Donald Trump announced his improbable campaign for President a little over two years ago. His particular brand of politics – right-wing, but not neoconservative, anti-trade, but not socialistic – had become as unusual in serious contenders for the office as his…
An Anarchist FAQ, Twenty Years On
In “An Anarchist FAQ after 20 years” (Anarchist Writers, July 18), the FAQ’s principal author Iain McKay — writing as Anarcho — provides an engaging retrospective on that document. It’s an anniversary worth celebrating for me because An Anarchist FAQ played a major formative role in my development as an anarchist. I began thinking of…

Instead of a Book, by a Man too Lazy to Write One
I’ve been writing at my site Abolish Work for a few years now and I’m really encouraged by all of the support that’s come in so many different shapes in sizes. That support has given me the confidence to reach out to Little Black Cart, an anarchist publisher whose books C4SS has reviewed many times,…

A Matter of Life & Death
At this moment, governments have stockpiled at least 17,300 nuclear weapons, for leverage in disputes with other governments. Powerful men in suits calmly talk things over while memories of mushroom clouds and mass-murder stand in the back of the room like a silent muscleman. In the words of ethicist Germain Grisez, those who own these…

Individualist Anarchism and Hierarchy
Anarchism and hierarchy have a tricky and messy relationship. Some anarchists proclaim to be against all hierarchy (sometimes even defining anarchism as such) and others proclaim they are simply against the state and don’t care about hierarchy itself. I believe individualist anarchism, rightly understood falls somewhere in between these extremes. Individualist anarchism, in short, is…
