Let The Rebel Prince Be Heard: An Anarchist Revision of Evolutionary Models
The question of human nature is often at the epicenter of important ideological struggles, including those related to the inevitability of competition or the necessity of authority for the functioning of societies. Of course, anarchist thinkers have not escaped this debate, since one of the most recurrent objections toward the movement claims its goals are…
Escuchemos al Príncipe Rebelde: Revisión a los Modelos Evolucionistas desde el Anarquismo
La pregunta sobre la naturaleza humana se encuentra muchas veces en el epicentro de importantes pugnas ideológicas, incluyendo aquellas relacionadas a la inevitabilidad de la competencia o la necesidad de la autoridad para el funcionamiento de las sociedades. Por supuesto, los pensadores anarquistas no han escapado de este debate, puesto que una de las objeciones…
Una guía antiestatista para principiantes sobre (impuestos, presupuestos públicos, y) presupuestos participativos
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…

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…
Ultra liberaal
Is individueel anarchisme een ULTRA liberalisme, zoals sommige (communistische) anarchisten zeggen ? Zegt individueel anarchisme : Doe maar wat je wilt ? zoals sommige anarcho communisten beweren ? Iets dat ze dan ultra liberaal vinden. Ja, ‘wij’ zeggen : Doe wat je wilt, zeg wat je wilt, denk wat je wilt. Dat zegt individueel/egoïstisch anarchisme….

Long Live Anarchy: An Interview with Robert Anton Wilson (Part 1)
At some point in the late fifties or early sixties, Pacifica Radio’s Charlie Hayden interviewed the inimitable Robert Anton Wilson on all things anarchism. Wilson waxes poetic on anarchism’s foundations and answers some challenging questions from a presumable skeptic in Hayden. While the exact date of the interview is unknown, the early to mid-sixties appear…
Reason’s Cure for Flint: More of the Disease
In a Feb. 1 article at Reason, Adrian Moore outlines his solution for the poison water crisis in Flint. He states his proposal straightforwardly enough in the title: “Here’s How to Fix Flint’s Water System: Privatize It.” This strikes me as curing the disease with more of the same disease. Some right-libertarians are sure to…
Once Again, a Tired Pro-Capitalist Argument Rears Its Stupid Head
As if Thomas Sowell weren’t sufficient to demonstrate the intellectual bankruptcy of pro-capitalist apologetics, we now have corporate apologists trolling the #ResistCapitalism hashtag on Twitter. Although most of the people using it today seem to think it’s an original piece of wit they just came up with on their own, the “Lookit them tweeting #ResistCapitalism…

The following interview with Robert Anton Wilson was conducted in 2002. It’s Part 3 of a 4-Part series. It took place after the publication of Wilson’s most overtly political tract, TSOG: The Thing That Ate the Constiution. (TSOG stands for Tsarist Occupation Government.) Among the topics discussed in this segment: 9/11 and Pearl Harbor as…
Will Free Markets Recreate Corporate Capitalism?
Some anarchists and socialists argue that, even if markets can theoretically be non-capitalist, and non-capitalist market economies can exist, the dynamics of the market will eventually lead to the restoration of capitalism. The argument used by non-market anarchists and socialists is that, in a competitive market — even a competitive market of widespread distribution of…
Horizontal Self-Governance — The Only “Regulation” We Need
A common liberal or “progressive” criticism of so-called “sharing economy” entities like Uber, Lyft and Airbnb (usually appearing in venues like Salon or Alternet) is that they’re “unregulated.”   This implicitly assumes, of course, that regulations like the taxi medallion system exist for some idealistic purpose of serving the “public welfare” and not simply guaranteeing…
