Steal This Book Review
Steal This Book, by Abbie Hoffman. Pirate Editions/Grove Press. 1971 If you are looking for an in-depth collection of arguments about the evils of the current system, this is not the book you are looking for.

Karl Hess on Anarcho-Capitalism
As you may know, I’ve got some opinions about capitalism, and about the idea of “anarcho-capitalism.” I think that anarcho-capitalism is an incoherent goal, and in some ways destructive in practice. Not because I’ve got a problem with property, money, competition or market exchange, but because I think the conflation of these market forms with…
A doutrina Spooner-Tucker: a opinião de um economista
Primeiramente, devo afirmar minha convicção de que Lysander Spooner e Benjamin R. Tucker foram inigualáveis como filósofos políticos e que nada é mais necessário hoje em dia que um renascimento e um desenvolvimento de seu legado esquecido para a filosofia política. Na metade do século 19, a doutrina individualista libertária havia chegado a um ponto…
Rothbard contra a síntese marshalliana
Murray Rothbard rejeitou fortemente essa tentativa marshalliana de sintetizar as inovações marginalistas com o legado de David Ricardo. Com isso, rejeitava a tentativa de sintetizar o trabalho e a espera como elementos do “custo real”. Para entender por quê, devemos começar com a distinção de Rothbard entre a avaliação de ações ex ante e ex…

Rothbard pervierte las ideas de Marx
Michelle Fransan, del Instituto Liberal de São Paulo, publicó un artículo esta semana (“Marx ea defesa da prostituição Forcada“, Liberzone, 13 de mayo) que supuestamente “demostró” que Marx abogó por la disolución de la familia y la prostitución forzada y generalizada.

Rothbard e a perversão de Marx
Michelle Fransan, do Instituto Liberal de São Paulo, publicou um artigo esta semana (“Marx e a defesa da prostituição forçada“, Liberzone, 13 de maio) que supostamente “provava” que Marx defendia a dissolução da família e a prostituição geral forçada.

Rothbard’s Perversion of Marx
Michelle Fransan, from the São Paulo’s Instituto Liberal, published an article this week (“Marx e a defesa da prostituição forçada“, Liberzone, May 13) that supposedly “proved” how Marx advocated the dissolution of family and general forced prostitution. It’s an old meme that refuses to die. It’s also a lie that forces me into the awkward…

A consciência negra e sua luta libertária
Na década de 60, importantes nomes do movimento libertário norte-americano tiveram contato com as mobilizações promovidas pela New Left (“Nova Esquerda”), que se caracterizava, em contraposição à velha esquerda, pela desconfiança dos métodos de organização centralistas e das táticas pró-fortalecimento do estado, e por sua ênfase na inclusão de grupos segregados ou minoritários dentro da elevação do padrão…
O libertarianismo é mais que anti-estatismo
Há uma divisão cada vez maior entre os libertários com relação à conexão entre seu firme comprometimento à luta contra o estado e outros valores sociais e culturais. Contudo, trata-se de uma falsa dicotomia. Os libertários apoiam um único princípio maior: a liberdade. É um princípio que se aplica a situações que envolvem ou não…
Libertarianism is More than Anti-Statism
There is a growing division among libertarians regarding the relationship between our fervent commitment to anti-statism and other principles we might hold regarding social and cultural issues. This distinction is a false dichotomy, though. Put simply, libertarians are for one overriding principle: liberty. This principle applies to situations involving the state and situations that don’t….
