Bloody Rule and a Cannibal Order! Part II: The Anarchist
This essay is a response to Jason Lee Byas’ series of essays: “Against Moral Cannibalism,” “Anarchy is Moral Order,” “The Authority of Yourself.” There is something else happening in Byas’ account of our own self-enslavement that I find interesting. It’s not just that Byas’ portrayal of anarchism is meant to be retroactively binding, emerging from…

Molotov Pill Bottle: Radical Answers to Failed Capitalist Healthcare
A recent legislative attempt at Medicare and Healthcare expansion has fallen to the monopolistic death-grip of corporate lobbyists. What does the history of radical alternatives to healthcare have to teach us? Before looking at examples of solutions, it is worth taking a moment to understand some of the potential changes lost by the complete abandonment…
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…

Cos’è la Giustizia?
Di Cayce Jamil. Originale: What is Justice? del 22 gennaio 2021. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Ad una manifestazione di protesta sentiamo spesso proclami che si rifanno alla giustizia, come ad esempio “non c’è pace senza giustizia”. Cosa s’intende per “giustizia” però non è specificato.

What is Justice?
If you listen to a protest, you will more than likely hear phrases related to realizing justice, like “no justice, no peace.” However, what is meant by the term ‘justice’ isn’t defined. Some assume the term means direct reparations from the state should be made to an aggrieved group. Others assume it warrants some form…

Recasting the Theory of Natural Law
Proudhon (1809-1865) is generally remembered for remarking, “Property is theft” and “I am an anarchist.” However, behind both of those well-known statements lies his conception of  justice, which pervades all of his works. Justice is the central concept to Proudhon’s framework, yet it is not something for which he appears to be well-known. Partially to…
Создание альтернативы государству
Когда человек с благими намерениями пытается проникнуть в государственно-непотическую капиталистическую систему, то его ожидает один простой сценарий. Сначала его проглотит эта система, у нее начнется несварение и в итоге систему вырвет остатками всего благого в этом человеке. Система, которая нацелена с самого начала на гниение будет существовать лишь в хаосе. Правила этой игры никогда не…
Creating Alternatives to the State
When a person with good intentions tries to penetrate into the nepotistic state-capitalist system, only one scenario awaits him. This system will swallow him, and — after indigestion — the system will tear up the remnants of all the good things in this person. A system that aims from the very beginning to rot will…

Quale Economia dei Lavoretti?
Di Kevin Carson. Originale pubblicato il 14 febbraio 2016 con il titolo Which Way for the Gig Economy? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Il termine “economia della condivisione” talvolta è usato come sinonimo di “economia dei lavoretti”. Quest’ultimo è sicuramente più rispondente alla realtà, dato che “economia della condivisione” fa pensare a cose come cooperazione e reciprocità,…

“Liberty, for you, is the Devil”: Divinity and Subordination in Anarchist Thought
Come, Satan, come, slandered by priests and kings! Let me embrace you, let me clutch you to my breast! – Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1858) God — in nearly all monotheistic incarnations — represents the ultimate authoritarian. The creation must adhere to the creator’s rules for fear of eternal judgement. Anarchist thought has long reflected this, and…
