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

A Cornucopia of Mutualist History

Lots of valuable primary source material on the early history of mutualist thought has just been made available online by two laborers in the historical vinyards.

Shawn Wilbur posts an update at In the Libertarian Labyrinth blog on his scanning project. A lot of other material is also announced in recent posts. For starters, the Libertarian Labyrinth research and archive site is back online at a new address. He's got a very large index page to pdfs of historical material on colonial land banks, almost all of which was mouldering away in forgotten archives before he scanned it and brought it back to life. Three of William B. Greene's mutual banking works are also online: Equality (1849), the 1850 edition of Mutual Banking, and The Radical Deficiency of the Existing Circulating Medium (1857). There's also an online text of Remarks Upon Usury and its Effects: A National Bank a Remedy, by Edward Kellogg--a key influence on Greene's thought. Finally, he links to a great online collection of banking texts, including Kellogg's A New Monetary System.

Kenneth R. Gregg has an online text of Part One of Stephen Pearl Andrews' The Science of Society at CLASSical Liberalism blog, along with the Preface to Part Two.
