Jerarquías de Estatus: consentimiento tácito y expectativas de desempeño
De Cayce Jamil. Artículo original: Status Hierarchies: Tacit Consent and Performance Expectations. Traducido por Diego Avila. Lo que mantiene unidos a todos los diferentes tipos de socialistas libertarios es la creencia de que minimizar la jerarquía genera más libertad e igualdad. Sin embargo, la jerarquía es una palabra grabada en la ambigüedad. Los términos “poder”…
Micro Monopolies: When Exit Fails
Although monopolies typically evoke images of large corporations and governments, the concept of monopoly power is relative. That is, even a small entity can benefit at the expense of others depending on how individuals relate to it and the power it holds over them. Having numerous choices does not matter if an individual only cares…
Права, привилегии и власть
О чем мы говорим, когда обсуждаем концепцию прав? Существует философская концепция, идея о том, что все люди обладают определенными неотъемлемыми правах, просто вследствие того, что они являются людьми. Это понятие относится к правам человека, как они обычно понимаются. Есть же еще и понимание прав связанное с законами, которые гарантируют их существование или, более конкретно, национальным…
Aspettative di Prestazione e Presupposti Taciti
Di Cayce Jamil. Originale pubblicato il 14 novembre 2019 con il titolo Tacit Consent and Performance Expectations. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. A tenere assieme tutte le varianti del socialismo libertario è il fatto di credere che un indebolimento delle gerarchie significhi più libertà ed eguaglianza. Ma gerarchia è una parola carica di ambiguità. Aggiungiamo a…
Status Hierarchies: Tacit Consent and Performance Expectations
What keeps all different types of libertarian socialists together is the belief that minimizing hierarchy generates more freedom and equality. Nonetheless, hierarchy is a word etched in ambiguity. The terms power and status are used carelessly. Historically, libertarian socialists, with some notable exceptions, have tended to only be critical of power hierarchies. Feminists and race…
Reputation Markets: Reality, Dangers, and Possibility
Trust is the backbone of not just economies, but also the social fabric more broadly. With it, new worlds are possible, and without it, collapse is inevitable. Trust is built on dynamic and complexly layered reputations. We each have our own methods of building trust, and different communities have their own systems for developing reputation….

The Mall or the Agora? Revitalizing the Anarchist Bookfair
Anarchist bookfairs are one of the most interesting features of anarchist life. A bookfair is immediately recognizable as hierarchical. There are the booksellers and there are the consumers. What separates the two is not merely the physicality of a table, but the capital investment it represents. Those distroing have usually been required to purchase space…
Don’t Let Reality Catch You Slippin’
Many would-be radicals mistake throwing the baby out with the bath water for radical inquiry. “Abolish X thing” has been a useful frame for the moral immediatism we espouse. If it is cruel and unjust, our goal must be its abolition. However, after identifying X thing as Bad, we may, in our haste, obscure the…
Don’t Protect Their Secrets!: Whisper Networks and Manipulation
Even as we nurture beautiful futures and tender solidarity, our networks are struggling. As Bobby London wrote, “The state cannot destroy us the ways we destroy ourselves.” In addition to the threats that freedom faces from outside, we have threats inside that we need to deal with in real-time. We regularly fail to address them…
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…
On Anarchist Thought Crime and Property Rights
On the popular anarchist facebook page Anarchist Memes, an admin decided to exercise his private property rights in vocalizing his opinion that in a stateless society, unpopular opinions will not be dealt with peacefully. Status: “You think anarchism means we should all have some sort of right to say whatever you feel like? So let…
