Mutualist Blog: Free Market Anti-Capitalism

To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution

Testify!

From Roderick Long:

While there are, admittedly, plenty of authoritarian types on the left (as everywhere else), there are also plenty of people whose instincts are firmly anti-authoritarian but who have been lured into supporting state socialism because it’s been sold to them as the only effective counterweight to state capitalism. These leftists are our potential allies, but no alliance will be forthcoming so long as we continue to confirm most leftists’ impression of libertarianism as a variant of conservatism....


This time around, we are much better positioned to make a success of the
left/libertarian coalition that Murray Rothbard, Karl Hess, Leonard Liggio, and others sought to build four decades ago. Let’s get to work!

I thought of you when I first read that post by Long. I had begun seeing the left as more likely allies than the right when I began reading your essays several years ago. The Terrah Warr made it even more obvious that there were few freedom-friendly righties left.

"Free Market Anti-Capitalism" What a great title! I'll be checking back.
