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

At C4SS: Is the Environment a Public Good?


Blogger Julia Riber Pitt said...

A friend of mine (who is an anarcho-communist) made a youtube video entitled: "Would Anarchy Have Prevented the BP Oil Disaster?". His main premise is that lands which were held in common were always much better taken care of than lands which were held by a private company at its CEO, since the people using the lands themselves have a much greater incentive to preserve the lands then some corporate giant that buys up and disposes of nature as it pleases.

I would also think that workers' having control of the means of production would do a lot more for environmental sustainability, for the same reason.
