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

That's a lot of reading material...

By the way, your link to Shawn Wilbur's blog is slightly broken - the first "h" is missing.

Kevin,
Thanks for posting this great material. Hat tip to Shawn Wilbur for making it possible. I haven't had much progress on it yet but I want to test the feasiblity of a local currency around here. What advice could you give me? Any of Kevin's readers with links, tips, or whatever are encouraged to chime in too. Reach me at chessanarch@gmail.com if you have advice suited for email correspondence.

Thanks!

Thanks, Nathan--fixed it.

Buermann,
I don't know whether Shawn submitted it or not. You might check with him. I really don't know much about the workings of Project G.

Nick,
I made one abortive attempt to piggyback a LETS system on the membership of the local natural foods co-op, but the directors weren't having any of it. Generally, the quickest way to get anybody to do anything is for me to recommend the opposite.
