“Kapitalizm” Terimini Kullanmayı Bırakmalıyız
Okumak üzere olduğunuz makale, Gary Chartier tarafından kaleme alınmış ve Efsa tarafından Türkçe ’ye çevrilmiştir. 23 Kasım 2013 tarihinde “We Should Abandon the Term ‘Capitalism’” başlığı altında yayınlanmıştır. Özgürlüğü savunmak, barışçıl ve gönüllü alışverişi kısıtlamaya gelen baskılara karşı çıkmak anlamına gelir. Ancak bundan barışçıl ve gönüllü alışveriş sistemini “kapitalizm” olarak adlandırmamız gerektiği çıkarılmamalıdır. Elbette bazı insanlar, bunun…
Kleptokrasi ve Tekelcilikten Neden Korkmalıyız?
Okumak üzere olduğunuz makale, Citizen Ilya tarafından kaleme alınmış ve Faruk Pak tarafından Türkçe ’ye çevrilmiştir. 7 Aralık 2019 tarihinde “Why We Should Fear Kleptocracy and Monopolism” başlığı altında yayınlanmıştır. Kapitalizm Rusya’ya geleli 32 yıl oldu. 5 Şubat 1987’de girişimciliği yasallaştıran Gorbaçov’un reformlarıyla kendini göstermeye başlayan kapitalizm, Putin’in Rusya’sında da vahşice hüküm sürüyor. Bürokrasi vahşi kapitalizme dönüştü…
Gli Attuali Problemi Logistici Sono Colpa del Mercato?
Di Eric Fleishmann. Originale: Is the Market to Blame for Current Supply Chain Problems? del primo gennaio 2021. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. È dal picco della pandemia ad oggi (e forse oltre, data la comparsa improvvisa di Omicron) che noi, gli Stati Uniti in particolare, vediamo un imponente sconvolgimento delle catene logistiche. A chi chiede…
The End of Anarchy – An Introduction
To read Proudhon, to many non-mutualist thinkers beyond anarchist academia, is laughable. Anarchist communists will insist that Bakunin, Kropotkin and Bookchin expand on Proudhon, rendering the original mutualist promise as empty (ironic considering the massive amount Bakunin took directly from Proudhon.) Anarchist capitalists insist that his theories were flawed, socialist, and/or didn’t rely on the…
Is the Market to Blame for Current Supply Chain Problems?
From the height of the COVID-19 pandemic to today (and likely to continue with the sudden rise of Omicron), we—speaking particularly of the U.S.—have seen a massive disruption in global supply chains. The obvious (and correct) answer to ‘why?’  is that labor is the basis of society, and when it—particularly that part involved in moving…

How NOT to Argue Against the Existence of Monopoly
Liz Wolfe, in recent weeks, seems to have displaced Elizabeth Nolan Brown as the chief tech platform apologist at Reason. In her most recent article on this theme, “Google CEO Sundar Pichai Is Right: Companies That Dominate Today May Be Gone Tomorrow” (July 26), the general lines of her argument are simple: “Today’s Big Tech…

An Anarchist Take on Antitrust Laws: Dangers and Possibilities
Monopolies are pretty much universally bad. This perhaps one of the most uncontroversial position amongst anarchists, who principally define themselves in opposition to the state, which Max Weber, in “Politics as Vocation,” defines as the monopoly on force and the approval of the use of force in a geographic area. Benjamin Tucker, the great U.S….
Perché Dobbiamo Temere Cleptocrazie e Monopoli
Di Citizen Ilya. Originale pubblicato il 7 dicembre 2019 con il titolo Why We Should Fear Kleptocracy and Monopolism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Sono passati trentadue anni da quando il capitalismo è sbarcato in Russia. Partito con le riforme di Gorbaciov, che il cinque febbraio 1987 legalizzarono l’imprenditoria privata, ora nella Russia di Putin il…
Why We Should Fear Kleptocracy and Monopolism
It’s been 32 years since capitalism came to Russia. Starting with Gorbachev’s reforms, which legalized entrepreneurship on the 5th of February 1987, capitalism reigns wild in Putin’s Russia. Bureaucracy has evolved into wild capitalism and a lot of party members have become democrats and criminals. In modern Russia, everything that must belong to the people…
“Libertari” per la Pulizia Etnica
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 29 marzo 2015 con il titolo “Libertarians” for Ethnic Cleansing. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Quando un libertario di destra difende la gentrificazione, lo fa di solito inquadrandola come fenomeno del tutto spontaneo proprio del libero mercato, e minimizzando o ignorando il ruolo dello stato nel promuoverla. Già questo è…
Disuguaglianza Come Gioco a Somma Zero
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato l’undici febbraio 2016 con il titolo Inequality is a Zero-Sum Game. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. In un recente commento (“Economic Inequality”, gennaio 2016), l’investitore Paul Graham difende la disuguaglianza dicendo che non è necessariamente il risultato di un gioco a somma zero. Solitamente non lo è, dice. E accusa “gli…
Austin Inadvertently Promotes Open-Source Ride-Sharing
Austin voters, in a referendum last month, rejected a measure to overturn local regulations of so-called “ride-sharing” services. Although the main backing for the regulations was the legacy taxicab monopolies (which resented having to compete with even proprietary monopolies like Uber and Lyft), the result of leaving them in place has been to promote the…
The Weekly Abolitionist: Prisons and Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurs, or people who are alert to profit opportunities and act in order to obtain profits for themselves, exist in all societies. But the profit opportunities they seek will vary. Some entrepreneurs may seek to profit by providing consumers with goods they value, such as pizza or beer. Others may attempt to profit by seeking…
The Problem Doesn’t Stop With Amtrak
Amtrak is in legal trouble. The rail service provider has long enjoyed an anomalous legal status as a for-profit corporation created by the U.S. government. But in 2008, the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act, or PRIIA, heightened that anomaly by giving Amtrak a say in crafting and imposing the regulations that the entire U.S….
America’s Counter-Revolution: The Constitution Revisited
America’s Counter-Revolution: The Constitution Revisited Authored by Sheldon Richman Foreword by Jeffrey A. Tucker This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing…

Frank Chodorov (2/15/1887-12/28/1966) was a libertarian’s libertarian. Born in New York’s lower East Side and brought up on the lower West Side, his inspiration was his father, an immigrant peddler who worked hard and built a successful department store (his “mother operated a lunch room in the rear of the store”), the bequest to his…
