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

From Pollard's Mouth to God's Ears

As regular readers of these pages know, I am predicting that, at some point in this century, the large political and economic structures (state governments and multi-national corporations) that currently govern much of our lives will collapse, probably due to a combination of total dysfunction in the new wired world and economic bankruptcy. This will leave a vacuum that will be filled, I predict, by community-based organizations.

Community-based organisations? As in people turning off television and shutting off the computer in order to help their neighbours? Ah-hahahahaha

Not to mention putting down their cell phones. I hear you.

Of course, if the big media and communications companies go belly-up, most of the content on the local TV system may be community generated.

Whether "rule of law" requires the state, or is something that can be supplied by voluntary association, is one of the points at issue between anarchists and others.
