A Critical Consideration of my Critical Consideration
It’s been explained to me that every writer—whether of highbrow novels or online internet discourse—always has one or two things they’ve written that they dislike and which haunts them. For me that piece is “A Critical Consideration of Hensley’s Appalachian Anarchism,” which is a response to Dakota Hensley’s article “Appalachian Anarchism: What the Voting Record…

Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale: Materialism and Thick LIbertarianism, del 2 agosto 2022. Tradotto da Enrico Sanna. Due anni fa illustrai ad un gruppo di discussione di filosofia una relazione dal titolo “Prerequisiti della libertà nell’ottica anarco-individualista”, in cui parlando del nesso tra libertarismo grosso e anarco-individualismo nordamericano ottocentesco spiegavo come, per giungere ad un sincero…
Materialism and Thick Libertarianism
Two years ago, I gave a presentation titled “Prerequisites for Freedom: An Individualist Anarchist Perspective” to a philosophy discussion group, in which I talked about the connection between thick libertarianism and 19th century North American individualist anarchism and how progressive and liberatory values are necessary for genuine and necessarily anti-capitalist individualism. For the uninitiated, the…

Questione Annosa: l’anarco-capitalismo è anarchismo?
Di Eric Fleischmann. Originale pubblicato il 17 maggio 2022 con il titolo The Age-Old Question: Is Anarcho-Capitalism Anarchism? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. L’anarco-capitalismo è anarchismo? Anarchici di ogni sfumatura, compreso io, urlano: NO! Il dibattito infuria. Due le questioni: perché no? e: cos’è allora l’anarchismo? Le mie risposte: perché non soddisfa i requisiti dell’anarchismo, e…
La vieja pregunta: ¿El anarcocapitalismo es anarquismo?
De Eric Fleischmann. Artículo original publicado el 17 de mayo de 2022 con título The Age-Old Question: Is Anarcho-Capitalism Anarchism? Traducción al español de Vince Cerberus. ¿Es el anarcocapitalismo una forma de anarquismo? El grito resonante de los anarquistas de todas las tendencias, incluido yo mismo, es ¡NO!

The Age-Old Question: Is Anarcho-Capitalism Anarchism?
Is anarcho-capitalism a form of anarchism? The resounding cry from anarchists of all stripes—including myself—is NO! The debate rages on, but two questions are raised by this claim: why isn’t it anarchism and if it isn’t anarchism then what is it? I believe the answers are: because it fails to meet the deeper commitments of…

Libertarianism vs Psychopathic Dumbfuckery
The Difference between Libertarianism and Psychopathic Dumbfuckery Rand Paul is in the news again for trying to blame the United States government, and Dr. Anthony Fauci in particular, for creating the COVID-19 pandemic. He and a few other mouthpieces have insisted, without evidence, that funding authorized by Fauci directly contributed to “gain-of-function” research in Wuhan…
Libertarianism and the Varieties of Virtue
In Reason, William Ruger and Jason Sorens seek to offer an alternative to the sort of thick libertarianism to which many of those associated with the Center for a Stateless Society are committed. They seek to defend what they call “virtue libertarianism.” Sometimes, they seem to be concerned with virtues in the narrow sense of…
Silver and Golden Rule Societies
by Michael S. Rozeff Introduction Aggressive violence opposes freedom of action. This is a central libertarian tenet. What then are we to make of non-violent means of controlling an individual’s beliefs, such as methodical inculcation of religious, nationalistic, or superstitious beliefs? Do these methods also oppose freedom? How do we characterize such methods and contrast them…
A Follow Up Exchange Between Richman and Block
Following their August 28th debate on left-libertarianism, Sheldon and Walter continued their exchange via a series of emails: __________ Dear Sheldon, Suppose it were proven that racism, prejudice, hatred for homosexuals, etc., was the best way to promote libertarianism. Let us stipulate that this is so, arguendo. Would you then say that libertarians should promote…

Missing Comma: ‘Screeching Wenzel’ to C4SS Adviser Reisenwitz: “Thank You Very Little”
Cathy Reisenwitz announced last week that she was quitting full-time libertarian commentary to pursue a career in sales. She wrote in her blog post announcing this move that, “I want to learn to connect better. And getting successful at sales will require humility and constant feedback, and self-improvement is so incredibly important to building a…
Libertarianism Rightly Conceived
The debate on thick and thin libertarianism continues, and that’s a good thing. Libertarians can only gain by the discussion. Often one comes to appreciate one’s own philosophy more fully in the crucible of intellectual argument. So I, for one, welcome the debate — so long as it is a real debate and not merely a series…
