Mutual Exchange Radio: Evan Pierce on Universal Ecological Infrastructure
We’re back! A little late, but hopefully worth it, here’s our “August” episode of Mutual Exchange Radio. In this episode Alex McHugh stands in for host Zachary Woodman to interview C4SS editing coordinator Evan Pierce. Evan is a gardener, builder, and anarchist working on generating and regenerating universal ecological infrastructure. They’re into the cross-pollination of…
The End of Work (As We Know It) Part 2: The RICH Economy
In my previous essay Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It) I discussed the economic phenomenon that David Graeber coined as “bullshit jobs,” how the (transitionary) solution he suggested was to establish a universal basic income (UBI) and embrace automation leading to the end of work as we know it, and how this mirrors the…

Artigo original: Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It), de Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Traduzido para o Português por Gabriel Serpa. Pouco mais de cem anos desde que anarquistas, socialistas, comunistas, libertários e sindicalistas radicais venceram a longa, árdua e sangrenta batalha pela jornada de trabalho de oito horas, nos Estados Unidos,…
Bullshit Jobs and the End of Work (As We Know It)
A little over 100 years since anarchists, socialists, communists, libertarians, and radical unionists in the so-called united states successfully won the long, difficult, and bloody battle for the eight hour workday, we are still overworked and underpaid despite technological advancements necessitating less and less labor to maintain the same quality of life. To quote Bertrand…
Liberal Patriotism and the Trust Crisis That Isn’t
Pete Buttigieg is a fascinating figure. This isn’t to say that his policies or beliefs are unique, but his popularity among Democrats is something I’ve had a passive awareness of for the past year. This intrigues me, because I see very few things in Mayor Pete that make him stand out among other reformist liberals;…

Beyond UBI: Sowing the Seeds of Universal Ecological Infrastructure
Ideas related to Universal Basic Income (UBI) have been gaining some traction lately with the goals of mitigating inequality, addressing the increasing precarity of technological unemployment, and attempting to ensure that people can meet their basic needs. As an anarchist seeking freedom for all, these goals overlap with my own. This essay is not intended…
An Anarchist Case for UBI
Universal Basic Income (UBI) is quickly becoming a hot topic this presidential cycle due to the likes of Andrew Yang and his supporters. Since he began his campaign, many other candidates have been interrogated about their support for the idea and more and more are responding positively, even if half-heartedly. Sadly some, such as Bernie…
Per un Reddito di Base Universale Serve lo Stato?
Di Voltairine Linnell. Originale pubblicato il 2 ottobre 2017 con il titolo Does Universal Basic Income Require a State? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Vishal Wilde si è recentemente espresso a favore di un reddito di base universale (RBU) sostenendo che promuoverebbe la libertà economica e la giustizia sociale.

Does Universal Basic Income Require a State?
Recently, Vishal Wilde advocated for a universal basic income (UBI) on the grounds that it promotes economic freedom and social justice. Indeed, UBI has long been attractive to libertarians of various stripes. However, this idea suffers from the problem that, to date, UBI proposals have generally relied on the state for a taxation and distribution…
Reddito di Base, Libertà e Giustizia
Come un reddito di base universale potrebbe creare libertà economica e giustizia sociale [Di Vishal Wilde. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 20 aprile 2017 con il titolo A UBI Can Create Economic Freedom and Social Justice. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] Vista la richiesta sempre più forte di un reddito di base…
A UBI Can Create Economic Freedom And Social Justice
Given increasingly prominent calls for a Universal Basic Income (UBI), it is worth considering the extent to which such proposals accord with the principles of freedom and justice. UBI divides opinions and elicits controversy from across the political spectrum because it seems to be both idealistic and fatally flawed.
The UBI: Another Tool for Disciplining the Poor
On both sides of the argument over the efficacy of the Universal Basic Income (UBI), there is the claim that the UBI might encourage unemployment. The critics of UBI claim this is a defect, but the Left often argues that employment is not the only value we should have, and that a universal net will…
