Libertarian socialism

"Socialist anarchism" redirects here. For the branch of anarchism emphasizing mutual aid and sometimes referred to in similar terms, see Social anarchism.
This article is about the anti-authoritarian, anti-statist, anti-elitist and libertarian political philosophy within the socialist movement. For the type of libertarianism stressing both individual freedom and social equality, see Left-libertarianism. For the political philosophy that incorporates liberal principles to socialism, see Liberal socialism. For the variety of liberalism that endorses a regulated market economy and the expansion of civil and political rights, see Social liberalism.

Libertarian socialism, also referred to as anarcho-socialism, anarchist socialism, free socialism, stateless socialism, socialist anarchism and socialist libertarianism, is an anti-authoritarian, anti-statist and libertarian political philosophy within the socialist movement which rejects the state socialist conception of socialism as a statist form where the state retains centralized control of the economy. Overlapping with anarchism and libertarianism, libertarian socialists criticize wage slavery relationships within the workplace, emphasizing workers' self-management and decentralized structures of political organization. As a broad socialist tradition and movement, libertarian socialism includes anarchist, Marxist and anarchist or Marxist-inspired thought as well as other left-libertarian tendencies. Anarchism and libertarian Marxism are the main currents of libertarian socialism.

Libertarian socialism generally rejects the concept of a state and asserts that a society based on freedom and justice can only be achieved with the abolition of authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite. Libertarian socialists advocate for decentralized structures based on direct democracy and federal or confederal associations such as citizens'/popular assemblies, cooperatives, libertarian municipalism, trade unions and workers' councils. This is done within a general call for liberty and free association through the identification, criticism and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of human life. Libertarian socialism is distinguished from the authoritarian and vanguardist approach of Bolshevism/Leninism and the reformism of Fabianism/social democracy.

A form and socialist wing of left-libertarianism, past and present currents and movements commonly described as libertarian socialist include anarchism (especially anarchist schools of thought such as anarcho-communism, anarcho-syndicalism, collectivist anarchism, green anarchism, individualist anarchism, mutualism and social anarchism) as well as communalism, some forms of democratic socialism, guild socialism, libertarian Marxism (autonomism, council communism, left communism and Luxemburgism, among others), participism, revolutionary syndicalism and some versions of utopian socialism.

Definition

Libertarian socialism is a Western philosophy with diverse interpretations, although some general commonalities can be found in its many incarnations. It advocates a worker-oriented system of production and organization in the workplace that in some aspects radically departs from neoclassical economics in favor of democratic cooperatives or common ownership of the means of production (socialism). They propose that this economic system be executed in a manner that attempts to maximize the liberty of individuals and minimize concentration of power or authority (libertarianism). Adherents propose achieving this through decentralization of political and economic power, usually involving the socialization of most large-scale private property and enterprise (while retaining respect for personal property). Libertarian socialism tends to deny the legitimacy of most forms of economically significant private property, viewing capitalist property relation as a form of domination that is antagonistic to individual freedom.

The 17 August 1860 edition of French libertarian communist publication Le Libertaire edited by Joseph Déjacque

The first anarchist journal to use the term libertarian was Le Libertaire, Journal du Mouvement Social and it was published in New York City between 1858 and 1861 by French libertarian communist Joseph Déjacque. The next recorded use of the term was in Europe, when libertarian communism was used at a French regional anarchist Congress at Le Havre (16–22 November 1880). January 1881 saw a French manifesto issued on "Libertarian or Anarchist Communism". Finally, 1895 saw leading anarchists Sébastien Faure and Louise Michel publish Le Libertaire in France. The term itself stems from the French cognate libertaire which was used to evade the French ban on anarchist publications. In this tradition, the term libertarianism is generally used as a synonym for anarchism, the original meaning of the term. In the context of the European socialist movement, the term libertarian has been conventionally used to describe socialists who opposed authoritarianism and state socialism such as Mikhail Bakunin and largely overlaps with social anarchism, although individualist anarchism is also libertarian socialist. Non-Lockean individualism encompasses socialism, including libertarian socialism.

Noam Chomsky is one of the most well-known contemporary libertarian socialist thinkers.

The association of socialism with libertarianism predates that of capitalism and many anti-authoritarians still decry what they see as a mistaken association of capitalism with libertarianism in the United States. As Noam Chomsky put it, a consistent libertarian "must oppose private ownership of the means of production and wage slavery, which is a component of this system, as incompatible with the principle that labor must be freely undertaken and under the control of the producer". Terms such as anarchist socialism, anarcho-socialism, free socialism, stateless socialism, socialist anarchism and socialist libertarianism have all been used to refer to the anarchist-wing of libertarian socialism, or vis-à-vis authoritarian forms of socialism.

In a chapter of his Economic Justice and Democracy (2005) recounting the history of libertarian socialism, economist Robin Hahnel relates that the period where libertarian socialism has had its greatest impact was at the end of the 19th century through the first four decades of the 20th century. According to Hahnel, "libertarian socialism was as powerful a force as social democracy and communism" in the early 20th century. The Anarchist St. Imier International, referred by Hahnel as the Libertarian International, was founded at the 1872 Congress of St. Imier a few days after the split between Marxist and libertarians at The Hague Congress of the First International, referred by Hahnel as the Socialist International. This Libertarian International "competed successfully against social democrats and communists alike for the loyalty of anticapitalist activists, revolutionaries, workers, unions and political parties for over fifty years". For Hahnel, libertarian socialists "played a major role in the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917. Libertarian socialists played a dominant role in the Mexican Revolution of 1911. Twenty years after World War I was over, libertarian socialists were still strong enough to spearhead the social revolution that swept across Republican Spain in 1936 and 1937". On the other hand, a libertarian trend also developed within Marxism which gained visibility around the late 1910s mainly in reaction against Bolshevism and Leninism rising to power and establishing the Soviet Union. Libertarian socialists argue these states were in the process of transitioning from capitalism to socialism following Leninist doctrine and never reached further stages of development. Libertarian socialists seek the abolition of the state without going through a state capitalist transitionary stage.

In his preface to Peter Kropotkin's book The Conquest of Bread, Kent Bromley considered French utopian socialist Charles Fourier to be the founder of the libertarian branch of socialist thought as opposed to the authoritarian socialist ideas of the French François-Noël Babeuf and the Italian Philippe Buonarroti.

Anti-capitalism

Main article: Anti-capitalism

According to John O'Neil, "[i]t is forgotten that the early defenders of commercial society like [Adam] Smith were as much concerned with criticising the associational blocks to mobile labour represented by guilds as they were to the activities of the state. The history of socialist thought includes a long associational and anti-statist tradition prior to the political victory of the Bolshevism in the east and varieties of Fabianism in the west".

Libertarian socialism is anti-capitalist and can be distinguished from capitalist and right-libertarian principles which concentrate economic power in the hands of those who own the most capital. Libertarian socialism aims to distribute power more widely among members of society. Libertarian socialism and right-libertarian ideologies such as neoliberalism differ in that advocates of the former generally believe that one's degree of freedom is affected by one's economic and social status whereas advocates of the latter believe in the freedom of choice within a capitalist framework, specifically under capitalist private property. This is sometimes characterized as a desire to maximize free creativity in a society in preference to free enterprise.

Within anarchism, there emerged a critique of wage slavery which refers to a situation perceived as quasi-voluntary slavery, where a person's livelihood depends on wages, especially when the dependence is total and immediate. It is a negatively connoted term used to draw an analogy between slavery and wage labor by focusing on similarities between owning and renting a person. The term "wage slavery" has been used to criticize economic exploitation and social stratification, with the former seen primarily as unequal bargaining power between labor and capital (particularly when workers are paid comparatively low wages, e.g. in sweatshops) and the latter as a lack of workers' self-management, fulfilling job choices and leisure in an economy. Libertarian socialists believe that by valuing freedom society works towards a system in which individuals have the power to decide economic issues along with political issues. Libertarian socialists seek to replace unjustified authority with direct democracy, voluntary federation and popular autonomy in all aspects of life, including physical communities and economic enterprises. With the advent of the Industrial Revolution, thinkers such as Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Karl Marx elaborated the comparison between wage labor and slavery in the context of a critique of societal property not intended for active personal use. Luddites emphasized the dehumanization brought about by machines while later Emma Goldman famously denounced wage slavery by saying: "The only difference is that you are hired slaves instead of block slaves".

Many libertarian socialists believe that large-scale voluntary associations should manage industrial production while workers retain rights to the individual products of their labor. They see a distinction between concepts of private property and personal possession. Private property grants an individual exclusive control over a thing whether it is in use or not; and regardless of its productive capacity, possession grants no rights to things that are not in use. Furthermore, "the separation of work and life is questioned and alternatives suggested that are underpinned by notions of dignity, self-realization and freedom from domination and exploitation. Here, a freedom that is not restrictively negative (as in neo-liberal conceptions) but is, as well, positive – connected, that is, to views about human flourishing – is important, a profoundly embedded understanding of freedom, which ties freedom to its social, communal conditions and, importantly, refuses to separate questions of freedom from those of equality".

Anti-authoritarianism and opposition to the state

Libertarian philosophy generally regard concentrations of power as sources of oppression that must be continually challenged and justified. Most libertarian socialists believe that when power is exercised as exemplified by the economic, social, or physical dominance of one individual over another, the burden of proof is always on the authoritarian to justify their action as legitimate when taken against its effect of narrowing the scope of human freedom. Libertarian socialists typically oppose rigid and stratified structures of authority, be they political, economic, or social.

In lieu of corporations and states, libertarian socialists seek to organize society into voluntary associations (usually collectives, communes, municipalities, cooperatives, commons, or syndicates) that use direct democracy or consensus for their decision-making process. Some libertarian socialists advocate combining these institutions using rotating, recallable delegates to higher-level federations. Spanish anarchism is a major example of such federations in practice.

Contemporary examples of libertarian socialist organizational and decision-making models in practice include a number of anti-capitalist and global justice movements including Zapatista Councils of Good Government and the global Indymedia network (which covers 45 countries on six continents). There are also many examples of indigenous societies around the world whose political and economic systems can be accurately described as anarchist or libertarian socialist, each of which is uniquely suited to the culture that birthed it. For libertarians, that diversity of practice within a framework of common principles is proof of the vitality of those principles and of their flexibility and strength.

Contrary to popular opinion, libertarian socialism has not traditionally been a utopian movement, tending to avoid dense theoretical analysis or prediction of what a future society would or should look like. The tradition instead has been that such decisions cannot be made now and must be made through struggle and experimentation, so that the best solution can be arrived at democratically and organically; and to base the direction for struggle on established historical example. They point out that the success of the scientific method comes from its adherence to open rational exploration, not its conclusions, in sharp contrast to dogma and predetermined predictions. Noted anarchist Rudolf Rocker once stated: "I am an anarchist not because I believe anarchism is the final goal, but because there is no such thing as a final goal".

Because libertarian socialism encourages exploration and embraces a diversity of ideas rather than forming a compact movement, there have arisen inevitable controversies over individuals who describe themselves as libertarian socialists yet disagree with some of the core principles of libertarian socialism. Peter Hain interprets libertarian socialism as minarchist rather than anarchist, favoring radical decentralization of power without going as far as the complete abolition of the state. Libertarian socialist Noam Chomsky supports dismantling all forms of unjustified social or economic power while also emphasizing that state intervention should be supported as a temporary protection while oppressive structures remain in existence. Similarly, Peter Marshall includes "the decentralist who wishes to limit and devolve State power, to the syndicalist who wants to abolish it altogether. It can even encompass the Fabians and the social democrats who wish to socialize the economy but who still see a limited role for the State".

Proponents are known for opposing the existence of states or government and refusing to participate in coercive state institutions. In the past, many refused to swear oaths in court or to participate in trials, even when they faced imprisonment or deportation. For Chamsy el-Ojeili, "it is frequently to forms of working-class or popular self-organization that Left communists look in answer to the questions of the struggle for socialism, revolution and post-capitalist social organization. Nevertheless, Left communists have often continued to organize themselves into party-like structures that undertake agitation, propaganda, education and other forms of political intervention. This is a vexed issue across Left communism and has resulted in a number of significant variations – from the absolute rejection of separate parties in favour of mere study or affinity groups, to the critique of the naivety of pure spontaneism and an insistence on the necessary, though often modest, role of disciplined, self-critical and popularly connected communist organizations".

Civil liberties and individual freedom

Libertarian socialists have been strong advocates and activists of civil liberties (including freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, and other civil liberties ) that provide an individual specific rights such as the freedom in issues of love and sex (free love) and of thought and conscience (freethought). In this activism, they have clashed with state and religious institutions which have limited such rights. Anarchism has been an important advocate of free love since its birth. A strong tendency of free love later appeared alongside anarcha-feminism and advocacy of LGBT rights. In recent times, anarchism has also voiced opinions and taken action around certain sex related subjects such as pornography, BDSM and the sex industry.

Anarcha-feminism developed as a synthesis of radical feminism and anarchism that views patriarchy (male domination over women) as a fundamental manifestation of compulsory government. It was inspired by the late 19th-century writings of early feminist anarchists such as Lucy Parsons, Emma Goldman, Voltairine de Cleyre and Virginia Bolten. Like other radical feminists, anarcha-feminists criticise and advocate the abolition of traditional conceptions of family, education and gender roles. Council communist Sylvia Pankhurst was also a feminist activist as well as a libertarian Marxist. Anarchists also took a pioneering interest in issues related to LGBTI persons. An important current within anarchism is free love. Free love advocates sometimes traced their roots back to the early anarchist Josiah Warren and to experimental communities, viewed sexual freedom as a clear, direct expression of an individual's self-ownership. Free love particularly stressed women's rights since most sexual laws discriminated against women: for example, marriage laws and anti-birth control measures.

Libertarian socialists have traditionally been skeptical of and opposed to organized religion. Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds opinions should be formed on the basis of science, logic and reason; and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or other dogmas. The cognitive application of freethought is known as freethinking and practitioners of freethought are known as freethinkers. In the United States, freethought was an anti-Christian and anti-clerical movement, "whose purpose was to make the individual politically and spiritually free to decide for himself on religious matters". A number of contributors to the anarchist journal Liberty were prominent figures in both anarchism and freethought. The individualist anarchist George MacDonald was co-editor of both Freethought and The Truth Seeker. E. C. Walker was also co-editor of Lucifer, the Light-Bearer, another free love and freethought journal. Free Society (1895–1897 as The Firebrand; 1897–1904 as Free Society) was a major anarchist newspaper in the United States at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. The publication staunchly advocated free love and women's rights and critiqued comstockery—censorship of sexual information. In 1901, Catalan anarchist and freethinker Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia established modern or progressive schools in Barcelona in defiance of an educational system controlled by the Catholic Church. The schools' stated goal was to "educate the working class in a rational, secular and non-coercive setting". Fiercely anti-clerical, Ferrer believed in "freedom in education", education free from the authority of church and state.

Later in the 20th century, Austrian Freudo-Marxist Wilhelm Reich, who coined the phrase sexual revolution in one of his books from the 1940s, became a consistent propagandist for sexual freedom, going as far as opening free sex-counseling clinics in Vienna for working-class patients (Sex-Pol stood for the German Society of Proletarian Sexual Politics). According to Elizabeth Danto, Reich offered a mixture of "psychoanalytic counseling, Marxist advice and contraceptives" and "argued for sexual expressiveness for all, including the young and the unmarried, with a permissiveness that unsettled both the political left and the psychoanalysts". The clinics were immediately overcrowded by people seeking help. During the early 1970s, the English anarchist and pacifist Alex Comfort achieved international celebrity for writing the sex manuals The Joy of Sex and More Joy of Sex.

Violent and non-violent means

Some libertarian socialists see violent revolution as necessary in the abolition of capitalist society while others advocate non-violent methods. Along with many others, Errico Malatesta argued that the use of violence was necessary. As he put it in Umanità Nova (no. 125, September 6, 1921):

It is our aspiration and our aim that everyone should become socially conscious and effective; but to achieve this end, it is necessary to provide all with the means of life and for development, and it is therefore necessary to destroy with violence, since one cannot do otherwise, the violence that denies these means to the workers.

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon argued in favor of a non-violent revolution through a process of dual power in which libertarian socialist institutions would be established and form associations enabling the formation of an expanding network within the existing state capitalist framework with the intention of eventually rendering both the state and the capitalist economy obsolete. The progression towards violence in anarchism stemmed in part from the massacres of some of the communes inspired by the ideas of Proudhon and others. Many anarcho-communists began to see a need for revolutionary violence to counteract the violence inherent in both capitalism and government.

Anarcho-pacifism is a tendency within the anarchist movement which rejects the use of violence in the struggle for social change. The main early influences were the thought of Henry David Thoreau and Leo Tolstoy. It developed "mostly in Holland [sic], Britain, and the United States, before and during the Second World War". Opposition to the use of violence has not prohibited anarcho-pacifists from accepting the principle of resistance or even revolutionary action, provided it does not result in violence; it was in fact their approval of such forms of opposition to power that lead many anarcho-pacifists to endorse the anarcho-syndicalist concept of the general strike as the great revolutionary weapon. Anarcho-pacifists have also come to endorse the non-violent strategy of dual power.

Other anarchists have believed that violence (especially self-defense) is justified as a way to provoke social upheaval which could lead to a social revolution.

Environmental issues

Green anarchism is a school of thought within anarchism which puts a particular emphasis on environmental issues. An important early influence was the thought of the American anarchist Henry David Thoreau and his book Walden as well as Leo Tolstoy and Élisée Reclus. In the late 19th century, there emerged anarcho-naturism as the fusion of anarchism and naturist philosophies within individualist anarchist circles in Cuba France, Portugal and Spain.

Important contemporary currents are anarcho-primitivism and social ecology. An important meeting place for international libertarian socialism in the early 1990s was the journal Democracy & Nature in which prominent activists and theorists such as Takis Fotopoulos, Noam Chomsky, Murray Bookchin and Cornelius Castoriadis wrote.

Within early modern socialist thought

Peasant revolts in the post-Reformation era

For Roderick T. Long, libertarian socialists claim the 17th century English Levellers among their ideological forebears. Various libertarian socialist authors have identified the written work of English Protestant social reformer Gerrard Winstanley and the social activism of his group (the Diggers) as anticipating this line of thought. For anarchist historian George Woodcock, although Pierre-Joseph Proudhon was the first writer to call himself an anarchist, at least two predecessors outlined systems that contain all the basic elements of anarchism. The first was Gerrard Winstanley (1609 – c. 1660), a linen draper who led the small movement of the Diggers during the Commonwealth. Winstanley and his followers protested in the name of a radical Christianity against the economic distress that followed the English Civil War and against the inequality that the grandees of the New Model Army seemed intent on preserving.

Woodcut from a Leveller document by William Everard

In 1649–1650, the Diggers squatted on stretches of common land in southern England and attempted to set up communities based on work on the land and the sharing of goods. The communities failed, but a series of pamphlets by Winstanley survived, of which The New Law of Righteousness (1649) was the most important. Advocating a rational Christianity, Winstanley equated Christ with "the universal liberty" and declared the universally corrupting nature of authority. He saw "an equal privilege to share in the blessing of liberty" and detected an intimate link between the institution of property and the lack of freedom.

Murray Bookchin stated: "In the modern world, anarchism first appeared as a movement of the peasantry and yeomanry against declining feudal institutions. In Germany its foremost spokesman during the Peasant Wars was Thomas Muenzer. The concepts held by Muenzer and Winstanley were superbly attuned to the needs of their time – a historical period when the majority of the population lived in the countryside and when the most militant revolutionary forces came from an agrarian world. It would be painfully academic to argue whether Muenzer and Winstanley could have achieved their ideals. What is of real importance is that they spoke to their time; their anarchist concepts followed naturally from the rural society that furnished the bands of the peasant armies in Germany and the New Model in England".

Age of Enlightenment

For Long, libertarian socialists also often share a view of ancestry in the 18th-century French Encyclopédistes alongside Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine. A more often mentioned name is that of English enlightenment thinker William Godwin.

For Woodcock, a more elaborate sketch of anarchism—although still without the name—was provided by William Godwin in his Enquiry Concerning Political Justice (1793). Godwin was a gradualist anarchist rather than a revolutionary anarchist as he differed from most later anarchists in preferring above revolutionary action the gradual and—as it seemed to him—more natural process of discussion among men of good will, by which he hoped truth would eventually triumph through its own power. Godwin, who was influenced by the English tradition of Dissent and the French philosophy of the Enlightenment, put forward in a developed form the basic anarchist criticisms of the state, of accumulated property and of the delegation of authority through democratic procedure.

Noam Chomsky considers libertarian socialism to be "the proper and natural extension" of classical liberalism "into the era of advanced industrial society". Chomsky sees libertarian socialist ideas as the descendants of the classical liberal ideas of the Age of Enlightenment, arguing that his ideological position revolves around "nourishing the libertarian and creative character of the human being". Chomsky envisions an anarcho-syndicalist future with direct worker control of the means of production and government by workers' councils which would select representatives to meet together at general assemblies. The point of this self-governance is to make each citizen, in Jefferson's words, "a direct participator in the government of affairs". Chomsky believes that there will be no need for political parties. By controlling their productive life, Chomsky believes that individuals can gain job satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Chomsky argues that unpleasant and unpopular jobs could be fully automated, carried out by workers who are specially remunerated, or shared among everyone.

During the French Revolution, Sylvain Maréchal demanded "the communal enjoyment of the fruits of the earth" in his Manifesto of the Equals (1796) and looked forward to the disappearance of "the revolting distinction of rich and poor, of great and small, of masters and valets, of governors and governed". The term anarchist first entered the English language in 1642 during the English Civil War as a term of abuse, used by Royalists against their Roundhead opponents. By the time of the French Revolution, some such as the Enragés began to use the term positively in opposition to Jacobin centralisation of power, seeing revolutionary government as oxymoronic. By the turn of the 19th century, the English term anarchism had lost its initial negative connotation.

Romantic era and utopian socialism

In his preface to Peter Kropotkin's book The Conquest of Bread, Kent Bromley considered early French socialist Charles Fourier to be the founder of the libertarian branch of socialist thought as opposed to the authoritarian socialist ideas of François-Noël Babeuf and Philippe Buonarroti. Anarchist Hakim Bey describes Fourier's ideas as follows: "In Fourier's system of Harmony all creative activity including industry, craft, agriculture, etc. will arise from liberated passion – this is the famous theory of "attractive labor." Fourier sexualizes work itself – the life of the Phalanstery is a continual orgy of intense feeling, intellection, & activity, a society of lovers & wild enthusiasts". Fourierism manifested itself in the middle of the 19th century, where hundreds of communes (phalansteries) were founded on Fourierist principles in France, North America, Mexico, South America, Algeria, and Yugoslavia. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Friedrich Engels and Peter Kropotkin all read him with fascination as did André Breton and Roland Barthes. In his influential work Eros and Civilization, Herbert Marcuse praised Fourier by saying that he "comes closer than any other utopian socialist to elucidating the dependence of freedom on non-repressive sublimation".

Anarchist Peter Sabatini reports that in the United States of early to mid-19th century, "there appeared an array of communal and "utopian" counterculture groups (including the so-called free love movement). William Godwin's anarchism exerted an ideological influence on some of this, but more so the socialism of Robert Owen and Charles Fourier. After success of his British venture, Owen himself established a cooperative community within the United States at New Harmony, Indiana during 1825. One member of this commune was Josiah Warren (1798–1874), considered to be the first individualist anarchist".

Within modern socialist thought

Anarchism

Main article: Anarchism

As Albert Meltzer and Stuart Christie stated in their book The Floodgates of Anarchy:

[Anarchism] has its particular inheritance, part of which it shares with socialism, giving it a family resemblance to certain of its enemies. Another part of its inheritance it shares with liberalism, making it, at birth, kissing-cousins with American-type radical individualism, a large part of which has married out of the family into the Right Wing and is no longer on speaking terms.

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, who is often considered the father of modern anarchism, coined the phrase "Property is theft!" to describe part of his view on the complex nature of ownership in relation to freedom. When he said property is theft, he was referring to the capitalist who he believed stole profit from laborers. For Proudhon, the capitalist's employee was "subordinated, exploited: his permanent condition is one of obedience".

Seventeen years (1857) after Proudhon first called himself an anarchist (1840), anarcho-communist Joseph Déjacque was the first person to describe himself as a libertarian. Outside the United States, the term libertarian generally refers to anti-authoritarian anti-capitalist ideologies.

Libertarian socialism has its roots in both classical liberalism and socialism, though it is often in conflict with liberalism (especially neoliberalism and right-libertarianism) and authoritarian state socialism simultaneously. While libertarian socialism has roots in both socialism and liberalism, different forms have different levels of influence from the two traditions. For instance, mutualist anarchism is more influenced by liberalism while communist and syndicalist anarchism are more influenced by socialism. However, mutualist anarchism has its origins in 18th- and 19th-century European socialism (such as Fourierian socialism) while communist and syndicalist anarchism has its earliest origins in early 18th century liberalism (such as the French Revolution).

Anarchism posed an early challenge to the vanguardism and statism it detected in important sectors of the socialist movement. As such: "The consequences of the growth of parliamentary action, ministerialism, and party life, charged the anarchists, would be de-radicalism and embourgeoisiement. Further, state politics would subvert both true individuality and true community. In response, many anarchists refused Marxist-type organisation, seeking to dissolve or undermine power and hierarchy by way of loose political-cultural groupings, or by championing organisation by a single, simultaneously economic and political administrative unit (Ruhle, syndicalism). The power of the intellectual and of science were also rejected by many anarchists: "In conquering the state, in exalting the role of parties, they [intellectuals] reinforce the hierarchical principle embodied in political and administrative institutions". Revolutions could only come through force of circumstances and/or the inherently rebellious instincts of the masses (the "instinct for freedom") (Bakunin, Chomsky), or in Bakunin's words: "All that individuals can do is to clarify, propagate, and work out ideas corresponding to the popular instinct".

Marxism

Main article: Libertarian Marxism

Marxism started to develop a libertarian strand of thought after specific circumstances. Chamsy Ojeili said: "One does find early expressions of such perspectives in [William] Morris and the Socialist Party of Great Britain (the SPGB), then again around the events of 1905, with the growing concern at the bureaucratisation and de-radicalisation of international socialism". Morris established the Socialist League in December 1884, which was encouraged by Friedrich Engels and Eleanor Marx. As the leading figure in the organization, Morris embarked on a relentless series of speeches and talks on street corners in working men's clubs and lecture theatres across England and Scotland. From 1887, anarchists began to outnumber socialists in the Socialist League. The 3rd Annual Conference of the League, held in London on 29 May 1887, marked the change with a majority of the 24 branch delegates voting in favor of an anarchist-sponsored resolution declaring: "This conference endorses the policy of abstention from parliamentary action, hitherto pursued by the League, and sees no sufficient reason for altering it". Morris played peacemaker, but he sided with the anti-Parliamentarians, who won control of the League, which consequently lost the support of Engels and saw the departure of Eleanor Marx and her partner Edward Aveling to form the separate Bloomsbury Socialist Society.

However, "the most important ruptures are to be traced to the insurgency during and after the First World War. Disillusioned with the capitulation of the social democrats, excited by the emergence of workers' councils, and slowly distanced from Leninism, many communists came to reject the claims of socialist parties and to put their faith instead in the masses". For these socialists, "[t]he intuition of the masses in action can have more genius in it than the work of the greatest individual genius". Rosa Luxemburg's workerism and spontaneism are exemplary of positions later taken up by the far-left of the period—Antonie Pannekoek, Roland Holst and Herman Gorter in the Netherlands, Sylvia Pankhurst in Britain, Antonio Gramsci in Italy and György Lukács in Hungary. In these formulations, the dictatorship of the proletariat was to be the dictatorship of a class, "not of a party or of a clique". However, within this line of thought "[t]he tension between anti-vanguardism and vanguardism has frequently resolved itself in two diametrically opposed ways: the first involved a drift towards the party; the second saw a move towards the idea of complete proletarian spontaneity. [...] The first course is exemplified most clearly in Gramsci and Lukacs. [...] The second course is illustrated in the tendency, developing from the Dutch and German far-lefts, which inclined towards the complete eradication of the party form".

In the emerging Soviet Union, there appeared left-wing uprisings against the Bolsheviks which were a series of rebellions and uprisings against the Bolsheviks led or supported by left-wing groups including Socialist Revolutionaries, Left Socialist-Revolutionaries, Mensheviks and anarchists. Some were in support of the White Movement while some tried to be an independent force. The uprisings started in 1918 and continued through the Russian Civil War and after until 1922. In response, the Bolsheviks increasingly abandoned attempts to get these groups to join the government and suppressed them with force. "Left-Wing" Communism: An Infantile Disorder is a work by Vladimir Lenin himself attacking assorted critics of the Bolsheviks who claimed positions to their left.

For many Marxian libertarian socialists, "the political bankruptcy of socialist orthodoxy necessitated a theoretical break. This break took a number of forms. The Bordigists and the SPGB championed a super-Marxian intransigence in theoretical matters. Other socialists made a return "behind Marx" to the anti-positivist programme of German idealism. Libertarian socialism has frequently linked its anti-authoritarian political aspirations with this theoretical differentiation from orthodoxy. [...] Karl Korsch [...] remained a libertarian socialist for a large part of his life and because of the persistent urge towards theoretical openness in his work. Korsch rejected the eternal and static, and he was obsessed by the essential role of practice in a theory's truth. For Korsch, no theory could escape history, not even Marxism. In this vein, Korsch even credited the stimulus for Marx's Capital to the movement of the oppressed classes".

In rejecting both capitalism and the state, some libertarian Marxists align themselves with anarchists in opposition to both capitalist representative democracy and to authoritarian forms of Marxism. Although anarchists and Marxists share an ultimate goal of a stateless society, anarchists criticise most Marxists for advocating a transitional phase under which the state is used to achieve this aim. Nonetheless, libertarian Marxist tendencies such as autonomist Marxism and council communism have historically been intertwined with the anarchist movement. Anarchist movements have come into conflict with both capitalist and Marxist forces, sometimes at the same time—as in the Spanish Civil War—though as in that war Marxists themselves are often divided in support or opposition to anarchism. Other political persecutions under bureaucratic parties have resulted in a strong historical antagonism between anarchists and libertarian Marxists on the one hand and Leninist Marxists and their derivatives such as Maoists on the other. In recent history, libertarian socialists have repeatedly formed temporary alliances with Marxist–Leninist groups for the purposes of protest against institutions they both reject. Part of this antagonism can be traced to the International Workingmen's Association, the First International, a congress of radical workers, where Mikhail Bakunin, who was fairly representative of anarchist views; and Karl Marx, whom anarchists accused of being an "authoritarian", came into conflict on various issues. Bakunin's viewpoint on the illegitimacy of the state as an institution and the role of electoral politics was starkly counterposed to Marx's views in the First International. Marx and Bakunin's disputes eventually led to Marx taking control of the First International and expelling Bakunin and his followers from the organization. This was the beginning of a long-running feud and schism between libertarian socialists and what they call "authoritarian communists", or alternatively just "authoritarians". Some Marxists have formulated views that closely resemble syndicalism and thus express more affinity with anarchist ideas. Several libertarian socialists, notably Noam Chomsky, believe that anarchism shares much in common with certain variants of Marxism such as the council communism of Marxist Anton Pannekoek. In his Notes on Anarchism, Chomsky suggests the possibility "that some form of council communism is the natural form of revolutionary socialism in an industrial society. It reflects the belief that democracy is severely limited when the industrial system is controlled by any form of autocratic elite, whether of owners, managers, and technocrats, a 'vanguard' party, or a State bureaucracy".

In the mid-20th century, some libertarian socialist groups emerged from disagreements with Trotskyism which presented itself as Leninist anti-Stalinism. As such, the French group Socialisme ou Barbarie emerged from the Trotskyist Fourth International, where Cornelius Castoriadis and Claude Lefort constituted a Chaulieu–Montal tendency in the French Parti Communiste Internationaliste in 1946. In 1948, they experienced their "final disenchantment with Trotskyism", leading them to break away to form Socialisme ou Barbarie, whose journal began appearing in March 1949. Castoriadis later said of this period that "the main audience of the group and of the journal was formed by groups of the old, radical left: Bordigists, council communists, some anarchists and some offspring of the German "left" of the 1920s". Also in the United Kingdom, the group Solidarity was founded in 1960 by a small group of expelled members of the Trotskyist Socialist Labour League. Almost from the start it was strongly influenced by the French Socialisme ou Barbarie group, in particular by its intellectual leader Cornelius Castoriadis, whose essays were among the many pamphlets Solidarity produced. The intellectual leader of the group was Chris Pallis, who wrote under the name Maurice Brinton.

In the People's Republic of China (PRC) since 1967, the terms ultra-left and left communist refers to political theory and practice self-defined as further left than that of the central Maoist leaders at the height of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (GPCR). The terms are also used retroactively to describe some early 20th century Chinese anarchist orientations. As a slur, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has used the term "ultra-left" more broadly to denounce any orientation it considers further left than the party line. According to the latter usage, in 1978 the CPC Central Committee denounced as ultra-left the line of Mao Zedong from 1956 until his death in 1976. The term ultra-left refers to those GPCR rebel positions that diverged from the central Maoist line by identifying an antagonistic contradiction between the CPC-PRC party-state itself and the masses of workers and peasants conceived as a single proletarian class divorced from any meaningful control over production or distribution. Whereas the central Maoist line maintained that the masses controlled the means of production through the party's mediation, the ultra-left argued that the objective interests of bureaucrats were structurally determined by the centralist state-form in direct opposition to the objective interests of the masses, regardless of however socialists a given bureaucrat's thought might be. Whereas the central Maoist leaders encouraged the masses to criticize reactionary ideas and habits among the alleged 5% of bad cadres, giving them a chance to "turn over a new leaf" after they had undergone "thought reform", the ultra-left argued that cultural revolution had to give way to political revolution "in which one class overthrows another class".

In 1969, French platformist anarcho-communist Daniel Guérin published an essay called "Libertarian Marxism?" in which he dealt with the debate between Karl Marx and Mikhail Bakunin at the First International and afterwards he suggested that "Libertarian [M]arxism rejects determinism and fatalism, giving the greater place to individual will, intuition, imagination, reflex speeds, and to the deep instincts of the masses, which are more far-seeing in hours of crisis than the reasonings of the 'elites'; libertarian [M]arxism thinks of the effects of surprise, provocation and boldness, refuses to be cluttered and paralysed by a heavy 'scientific' apparatus, doesn't equivocate or bluff, and guards itself from adventurism as much as from fear of the unknown". In the United States, there existed from 1970 to 1981 the publication Root & Branch which had as a subtitle "A Libertarian Marxist Journal". In 1974, the journal Libertarian Communism was started in the United Kingdom by a group inside the SPGB.

Autonomist Marxism, neo-Marxism and Situationist theory are also regarded as being anti-authoritarian variants of Marxism that are firmly within the libertarian socialist tradition. As such, "[i]n New Zealand, no situationist group was formed, despite the attempts of Grant McDonagh. Instead, McDonagh operated as an individual on the periphery of the anarchist milieu, co-operating with anarchists to publish several magazines, such as Anarchy and KAT. The latter called itself 'an anti-authoritarian spasmodical' of the 'libertarian ultra-left (situationists, anarchists and libertarian socialists)'". For libcom.org: "In the 1980s and 90s, a series of other groups developed, influenced also by much of the above work. The most notable are Kolinko, Kurasje and Wildcat in Germany, Aufheben in England, Theorie Communiste in France, TPTG in Greece and Kamunist Kranti in India. They are also connected to other groups in other countries, merging autonomia, operaismo, Hegelian Marxism, the work of the JFT, Open Marxism, the ICO, the Situationist International, anarchism and post-68 German Marxism". Related to this were intellectuals who were influenced by Italian left communist Amadeo Bordiga, but who disagreed with his Leninist positions and so these included the French publication Invariance edited by Jacques Camatte, published since 1968 and Gilles Dauvé who published Troploin with Karl Nesic.

Anarchist

Main article: Anarchism

Historically, anarchism and libertarian socialism have been largely synonymous. Principally this regards the currents of classical anarchism, developed in the 19th century, in their commitments to autonomy and freedom, decentralization, opposing hierarchy, and opposing the vanguardism of authoritarian socialism.

Anarcho-syndicalist Gaston Leval explained: "We therefore foresee a Society in which all activities will be coordinated, a structure that has, at the same time, sufficient flexibility to permit the greatest possible autonomy for social life, or for the life of each enterprise, and enough cohesiveness to prevent all disorder. [...] In a well-organised society, all of these things must be systematically accomplished by means of parallel federations, vertically united at the highest levels, constituting one vast organism in which all economic functions will be performed in solidarity with all others and that will permanently preserve the necessary cohesion".

Mutualism

Mutualism began as a 19th century socialist movement adopted and developed by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon into the first anarchist economic theory. Mutualism is based on a version of the labor theory of value holding that when labor or its product is sold it ought to receive in exchange goods or services embodying "the amount of labor necessary to produce an article of exactly similar and equal utility", and considers anything less to be exploitation, theft of labor, or usury. Mutualists advocate social ownership and believe that a free labor market would allow for conditions of equal income in proportion to exerted labor. As Jonathan Beecher puts it, the mutualist aim was to "emancipate labor from the constraints imposed by capital". Proudhon believed that an individual only had a right to land while he was using or occupying it. If the individual ceases doing so, it reverts to unowned land.

Some individualist anarchists such as Benjamin Tucker were influenced by Proudhon's mutualism, but they did not call for association in large enterprises like him. Mutualist ideas found a fertile ground in the 19th century in Spain. In Spain, Ramón de la Sagra established anarchist journal El Porvenir in La Coruña in 1845 which was inspired by Proudhon's ideas. The Catalan politician Francesc Pi i Margall became the principal translator of Proudhon's works into Spanish and later briefly became president of Spain in 1873 while being the leader of the Democratic Republican Federal Party.

According to George Woodcock, "[t]hese translations were to have a profound and lasting effect on the development of Spanish anarchism after 1870, but before that time Proudhonian ideas, as interpreted by Pi, already provided much of the inspiration for the federalist movement which sprang up in the early 1860's". According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, "[d]uring the Spanish revolution of 1873, Pi y Margall attempted to establish a decentralized, or 'cantonalist,' political system on Proudhonian lines". Kevin Carson is a contemporary mutualist theorist who is the author of Studies in Mutualist Political Economy.

Social anarchism

Main article: Social anarchism
Errico Malatesta, influential Italian activist and theorist of anarcho-communism

Social anarchism is a branch of anarchism emphasizing social ownership, mutual aid and workers' self-management. Social anarchism has been the dominant form of classical anarchism and includes the major collectivist, communist and syndicalist schools of anarchist thought. As a term, social anarchism is used in contrast to individualist anarchism to describe the theory that places an emphasis on the communitarian and cooperative aspects in anarchist theory while also opposing authoritarian forms of communitarianism associated with groupthink and collective conformity, favoring a reconciliation between individuality and sociality.

Social anarchists oppose private ownership of the means of production, seeing it as a source of inequality and instead advocate social ownership be it through collective ownership as with Bakuninists and collectivist anarchists; common ownership as with communist anarchists; and cooperative ownership as with syndicalist anarchists; or other forms. Social anarchism comes in both peaceful and insurrectionary tendencies as well as both platformist and anti-organizationalist tendencies. It has operated heavily within workers' movements, trade unions and labour syndicates, emphasizing the liberation of workers through class struggle.

To date, the best-known examples of social anarchist societies are the Free Territory after the Russian Revolution, the Korean People's Association in Manchuria and the anarchist territories of the Spanish Revolution.

Individualist anarchism

Individualist anarchism is a set of several traditions of thought within the anarchist movement that emphasize the individual and their will over external determinants such as groups, society, traditions and ideological systems. Anarchists such as Luigi Galleani and Errico Malatesta have seen no contradiction between individualist anarchism and social anarchism, with the latter especially seeing issues not between the two forms of anarchism, but between anarchists and non-anarchists. Anarchists such as Benjamin Tucker argued that it was "not Socialist Anarchism against Individualist Anarchism, but of Communist Socialism against Individualist Socialism". Tucker further noted that "the fact that State Socialism has overshadowed other forms of Socialism gives it no right to a monopoly of the Socialistic idea".

Josiah Warren is widely regarded as the first American anarchist and the four-page weekly paper he edited during 1833, The Peaceful Revolutionist, was the first anarchist periodical published. For American anarchist historian Eunice Minette Schuster, "[i]t is apparent [...] that Proudhonian Anarchism was to be found in the United States at least as early as 1848 and that it was not conscious of its affinity to the Individualist Anarchism of Josiah Warren and Stephen Pearl Andrews [...]. William B. Greene presented this Proudhonian Mutualism in its purest and most systematic form". Later, the American individualist anarchist Benjamin Tucker "was against both the state and capitalism, against both oppression and exploitation. While not against the market and property he was firmly against capitalism as it was, in his eyes, a state-supported monopoly of social capital (tools, machinery, etc.) which allows owners to exploit their employees, i.e., to avoid paying workers the full value of their labour. He thought that the "labouring classes are deprived of their earnings by usury in its three forms, interest, rent and profit", therefore "Liberty will abolish interest; it will abolish profit; it will abolish monopolistic rent; it will abolish taxation; it will abolish the exploitation of labour; it will abolish all means whereby any labourer can be deprived of any of his product". This stance puts him squarely in the libertarian socialist tradition and Tucker referred to himself many times as a socialist and considered his philosophy to be anarchistic socialism.

Oscar Wilde, famous anarchist Irish writer who published the libertarian socialist work titled The Soul of Man Under Socialism

French individualist anarchist Émile Armand shows clearly opposition to capitalism and centralized economies when he said that the individualist anarchist "inwardly he remains refractory – fatally refractory – morally, intellectually, economically (The capitalist economy and the directed economy, the speculators and the fabricators of single are equally repugnant to him.)". The Spanish individualist anarchist Miguel Giménez Igualada thought that "capitalism is an effect of government; the disappearance of government means capitalism falls from its pedestal vertiginously...That which we call capitalism is not something else but a product of the State, within which the only thing that is being pushed forward is profit, good or badly acquired. And so to fight against capitalism is a pointless task, since be it State capitalism or Enterprise capitalism, as long as Government exists, exploiting capital will exist. The fight, but of consciousness, is against the State". His view on class division and technocracy are as follows: "Since when no one works for another, the profiteer from wealth disappears, just as government will disappear when no one pays attention to those who learned four things at universities and from that fact they pretend to govern men. Big industrial enterprises will be transformed by men in big associations in which everyone will work and enjoy the product of their work. And from those easy as well as beautiful problems anarchism deals with and he who puts them in practice and lives them are anarchists. [...] The priority which without rest an anarchist must make is that in which no one has to exploit anyone, no man to no man, since that non-exploitation will lead to the limitation of property to individual needs".

The anarchist writer and Bohemian Oscar Wilde wrote in his famous essay The Soul of Man Under Socialism that "[a]rt is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force. There lies its immense value. For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the reduction of man to the level of a machine". For anarchist historian George Woodcock, "Wilde's aim in The Soul of Man Under Socialism is to seek the society most favorable to the artist [...] for Wilde art is the supreme end, containing within itself enlightenment and regeneration, to which all else in society must be subordinated. [...] Wilde represents the anarchist as aesthete". In a socialist society, people will have the possibility to realise their talents as "each member of the society will share in the general prosperity and happiness of the society". Wilde added that "upon the other hand, Socialism itself will be of value simply because it will lead to individualism" since individuals will no longer need to fear poverty or starvation. This individualism would, in turn, protect against governments "armed with economic power as they are now with political power" over their citizens. However, Wilde advocated non-capitalist individualism, saying that "of course, it might be said that the Individualism generated under conditions of private property is not always, or even as a rule, of a fine or wonderful type" a critique which is "quite true". In Wilde's imagination, in this way socialism would free men from manual labour and allow them to devote their time to creative pursuits, thus developing their soul. He ended by declaring: "The new individualism is the new hellenism".

Marxist

Main article: Libertarian Marxism

Libertarian Marxism is a broad scope of economic and political philosophies that emphasize the anti-authoritarian aspects of Marxism. Early currents of libertarian Marxism, known as left communism, emerged in opposition to Marxism–Leninism and its derivatives such as Stalinism, Maoism and Trotskyism. Libertarian Marxism is also critical of reformist positions such as those held by social democrats. Libertarian Marxist currents often draw from Marx and Engels' later works, specifically the Grundrisse and The Civil War in France; emphasizing the Marxist belief in the ability of the working class to forge its own destiny without the need for a revolutionary party or state to mediate or aid its liberation. Along with anarchism, libertarian Marxism is one of the main currents of libertarian socialism.

Libertarian Marxism includes such currents as Luxemburgism, council communism, left communism, Socialisme ou Barbarie, the Johnson–Forest tendency, world socialism, Lettrism/Situationism and autonomism/workerism and New Left. Libertarian Marxism has often had a strong influence on both post-left and social anarchists. Notable theorists of libertarian Marxism have included Anton Pannekoek, Raya Dunayevskaya, C. L. R. James, Antonio Negri, Cornelius Castoriadis, Maurice Brinton, Guy Debord, Daniel Guérin, Ernesto Screpanti and Raoul Vaneigem.

De Leonism

Main article: De Leonism

De Leonism is a form of syndicalist Marxism developed by Daniel De Leon. De Leon was an early leader of the first United States socialist political party, the Socialist Labor Party of America. De Leon combined the rising theories of syndicalism in his time with orthodox Marxism. According to De Leonist theory, militant industrial unions (specialized trade unions) and a party promoting industrial unionist ideas are the vehicles of class struggle.

Industrial unions serving the interests of the proletariat will bring about the change needed to establish a socialist system. The only way this differs from some currents in anarcho-syndicalism is that according to De Leonist thinking a revolutionary political party is also necessary to fight for the proletariat on the political field. De Leonism also lies outside the Leninist tradition of communism. It predates Leninism as De Leonism's principles developed in the early 1890s with De Leon's assuming leadership of the SLP whereas Leninism and its vanguard party idea took shape after the 1902 publication of Lenin's What Is To Be Done?

The highly decentralized and democratic nature of the proposed De Leonist government is in contrast to the democratic centralism of Marxism–Leninism and what they see as the dictatorial nature of the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China and other communist states. The success of the De Leonist plan depends on achieving majority support among the people both in the workplaces and at the polls in contrast to the Leninist notion that a small vanguard party should lead the working class to carry out the revolution.

Council communism

Main article: Council communism

Council communism is a radical left-wing movement originating in Germany and the Netherlands in the 1920s. Its primary organization was the Communist Workers Party of Germany (KAPD). Council communism continues today as a theoretical and activist position within Marxism and also within libertarian socialism. In contrast to those of social democracy and Leninist communism, the central argument of council communism is that workers' councils arising in the factories and municipalities are the natural and legitimate form of working class organisation and government power. This view is opposed to the reformist and Bolshevik stress on vanguard parties, parliaments, or the state. The core principle of council communism is that the state and the economy should be managed by workers' councils, composed of delegates elected at workplaces and recallable at any moment. As such, council communists oppose state-run bureaucratic socialism. They also oppose the idea of a revolutionary party since council communists believe that a revolution led by a party will necessarily produce a party dictatorship. Council communists support a workers' democracy, which they want to produce through a federation of workers' councils.

The Russian term for council is soviet and during the early years of the revolution worker's councils were politically significant in Russia. It was to take advantage of the aura of workplace power that the word became used by Vladimir Lenin for various political organs. The name Supreme Soviet, by which the parliament was called; and that of the Soviet Union itself make use of this terminology, but they do not imply any decentralization. Furthermore, council communists held a critique of the Soviet Union as a capitalist state, believing that the Bolshevik revolution in Russia became a "bourgeois revolution" when a party bureaucracy replaced the old feudal aristocracy. Although most felt the Russian Revolution was working class in character, they believed that since capitalist relations still existed (because the workers had no say in running the economy), the Soviet Union ended up as a state capitalist country, with the state replacing the individual capitalist. Council communists support workers' revolutions, but they oppose one-party dictatorships. Council communists also believed in diminishing the role of the party to one of agitation and propaganda, rejected all participation in elections or parliament and argued that workers should leave the reactionary trade unions and form one big revolutionary union.

Left communism

Main article: Left communism

Left communism is the range of communist viewpoints held by the communist left, which criticizes the political ideas of the Bolsheviks at certain periods, from a position that is asserted to be more authentically Marxist and proletarian than the views of Leninism held by the Communist International after its first and during its second congress. Left communists see themselves to the left of Leninists (whom they tend to see as the "left of capital", not socialists), anarchists (some of whom they consider internationalist socialists) as well as some other revolutionary socialist tendencies (for example, De Leonists, who they tend to see as being internationalist socialists only in limited instances). Although she lived before left communism became a distinct tendency, Rosa Luxemburg has heavily influenced most left communists, both politically and theoretically. Proponents of left communism have included Amadeo Bordiga, Herman Gorter, Anton Pannekoek, Otto Rühle, Karl Korsch, Sylvia Pankhurst and Paul Mattick.

Prominent left communist groups existing today include the International Communist Current and the Internationalist Communist Tendency. Different factions from the old Bordigist International Communist Party are also considered left communist organizations.

Johnson–Forest tendency

The Johnson–Forest tendency is a radical left tendency in the United States associated with Marxist humanist theorists C.L.R. James and Raya Dunayevskaya, who used the pseudonyms J. R. Johnson and Freddie Forest respectively. They were joined by Grace Lee Boggs, a Chinese American woman who was considered the third founder. After leaving the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party, Johnson–Forest founded their own organization for the first time, called Correspondence. This group changed its name to the Correspondence Publishing Committee the next year. However, tensions that had surfaced earlier presaged a split, which took place in 1955. Through his theoretical and political work of the late 1940s, James had concluded that a vanguard party was no longer necessary because its teachings had been absorbed in the masses. In 1956, James would see the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 as confirmation of this. Those who endorsed the politics of James took the name Facing Reality after the 1958 book by James co-written with Grace Lee Boggs and Pierre Chaulieu (a pseudonym for Cornelius Castoriadis) on the Hungarian working class revolt of 1956.

Socialisme ou Barbarie

Cornelius Castoriadis, libertarian socialist theorist

Socialisme ou Barbarie (Socialism or Barbarism) was a French-based radical libertarian socialist group of the post-World War II period (the name comes from a phrase Friedrich Engels used and was cited by Rosa Luxemburg in the 1916 essay The Junius Pamphlet). It existed from 1948 until 1965. The animating personality was Cornelius Castoriadis, also known as Pierre Chaulieu or Paul Cardan. Because he explicitly both rejected Leninist vanguardism and criticised spontaneism, for Castoriadis "the emancipation of the mass of people was the task of those people; however, the socialist thinker could not simply fold his or her arms". Castoriadis argued that the special place accorded to the intellectual should belong to each autonomous citizen. However, he rejected attentisme, maintaining that in the struggle for a new society intellectuals needed to "place themselves at a distance from the everyday and from the real". Political philosopher Claude Lefort was impressed by Cornelius Castoriadis when he first met him. They published On the Regime and Against the Defence of the USSR, a critique of both the Soviet Union and its Trotskyist supporters. They suggested that the Soviet Union was dominated by a social layer of bureaucrats and that it consisted of a new kind of society as aggressive as Western European societies. Later, he also published in Socialisme ou Barbarie.

Situationist International

The Situationist International was a restricted group of international revolutionaries founded in 1957 and which had its peak in its influence on the unprecedented general wildcat strikes of May 1968 in France. With their ideas rooted in Marxism and the 20th century European artistic avant-gardes, they advocated experiences of life being alternative to those admitted by the capitalist order, for the fulfillment of human primitive desires and the pursuing of a superior passional quality. For this purpose, they suggested and experimented with the "construction of situations", namely the setting up of environments favorable for the fulfillment of such desires. Using methods drawn from the arts, they developed a series of experimental fields of study for the construction of such situations, like unitary urbanism and psychogeography. In this vein, a major theorectical work which emerged from this group was Raoul Vaneigem's The Revolution of Everyday Life.

They fought against the main obstacle on the fulfillment of such superior passional living, identified by them in advanced capitalism. Their critical theoretical work peaked on the highly influential book The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord. Debord argued in 1967 that spectacular features like mass media and advertising have a central role in an advanced capitalist society, which is to show a fake reality in order to mask the real capitalist degradation of human life. To overthrow such a system, the Situationist International supported the May 1968 revolts and asked the workers to occupy the factories and to run them with direct democracy through workers' councils composed by instantly revocable delegates.

After publishing in the last issue of the magazine an analysis of the May 1968 revolts and the strategies that will need to be adopted in future revolutions, the Situationist International was dissolved in 1972.

Autonomism

Main article: Autonomism
Antonio Negri, main theorist of Italian autonomism

Autonomism is a set of left-wing political and social movements and theories close to the socialist movement. As an identifiable theoretical system it first emerged in Italy in the 1960s from workerist (operaismo) communism. Through translations made available by Danilo Montaldi and others, the Italian autonomists drew upon previous activist research in the United States by the Johnson–Forest tendency and in France by the group Socialisme ou Barbarie. Later, post-Marxist and anarchist tendencies became significant after influence from the Situationists, the failure of Italian far-left movements in the 1970s and the emergence of a number of important theorists including Antonio Negri, who had contributed to the 1969 founding of Potere Operaio as well as Mario Tronti, Paolo Virno and Franco "Bifo" Berardi.

Unlike other forms of Marxism, autonomist Marxism emphasises the ability of the working class to force changes to the organization of the capitalist system independent of the state, trade unions or political parties. Autonomists are less concerned with party political organization than other Marxists, focusing instead on self-organized action outside of traditional organizational structures. Autonomist Marxism is thus a "bottom up" theory which draws attention to activities that autonomists see as everyday working class resistance to capitalism, for example absenteeism, slow working and socialization in the workplace.

All this influenced the German and Dutch autonomen, the worldwide Social Centre movement and today is influential in Italy, France and to a lesser extent the English-speaking countries. Those who describe themselves as autonomists now vary from Marxists to post-structuralists and anarchists. The autonomist Marxist and autonomen movements provided inspiration to some on the revolutionary left in English-speaking countries, particularly among anarchists, many of whom have adopted autonomist tactics. Some English-speaking anarchists even describe themselves as autonomists. The Italian operaismo movement also influenced Marxist academics such as Harry Cleaver, John Holloway, Steve Wright and Nick Dyer-Witheford. Today, it is associated also with the publication Multitudes.

Other

Other libertarian socialist currents include post-classical anarchist tendencies as well as tendencies which cannot be easily classified within the anarchist/Marxist division.

Within the labour movement and parliamentary politics

Democratic socialism
Main article: Democratic socialism
Francesc Pi i Margall, Catalan follower and translator of Proudhon and libertarian socialist theorist who briefly became president of Spain

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon ran for the French constituent assembly in April 1848, but he was not elected although his name appeared on the ballots in Paris, Lyon, Besançon and Lille. He was successful in the complementary elections of June 4. The Catalan politician Francesc Pi i Margall became the principal translator of Proudhon's works into Spanish and later briefly became president of Spain in 1873 while being the leader of the Federal Democratic Republican Party.

For prominent anarcho-syndicalist Rudolf Rocker:

The first movement of the Spanish workers was strongly influenced by the ideas of Pi y Margall, leader of the Spanish Federalists and disciple of Proudhon. Pi y Margall was one of the outstanding theorists of his time and had a powerful influence on the development of libertarian ideas in Spain. His political ideas had much in common with those of Richard Price, Joseph Priestly [sic], Thomas Paine, Jefferson, and other representatives of the Anglo-American liberalism of the first period. He wanted to limit the power of the state to a minimum and gradually replace it by a Socialist economic order.

Pi i Margall was a dedicated theorist in his own right, especially through book-length works such as La reacción y la revolución (Reaction and revolution, from 1855), Las nacionalidades (Nationalities, 1877) and La Federación (Federation) from 1880. On the other hand, Fermín Salvochea was a mayor of the city of Cádiz and a president of the province of Cádiz. He was one of the main propagators of anarchist thought in that area in the late 19th century and is considered to be perhaps the most beloved figure in the Spanish anarchist movement of the 19th century. Ideologically, he was influenced by Charles Bradlaugh, Robert Owen and Thomas Paine, whose works he had studied during his stay in England as well as by Peter Kropotkin, whom he read later. In Spain, he had contact with the anarchist thinkers and members of the Bakuninist Alliance, including Anselmo Lorenzo and Francisco Mora.

In 1950, a clandestine group formed within the Francophone Anarchist Federation (FA) called Organisation Pensée Bataille (OPB) led by the platformist George Fontenis. The OPB pushed for a move which saw the FA change its name into the Fédération Communiste Libertaire (FCL) after the 1953 Congress in Paris while an article in Le Libertaire indicated the end of the cooperation with the French Surrealist Group led by André Breton. The new decision-making process was founded on unanimity as each person had a right of veto on the orientations of the federation. The FCL published the same year the Manifeste du communisme libertaire. Several groups quit the FCL in December 1955, disagreeing with the decision to present "revolutionary candidates" at the legislative elections. On 15–20 August 1954, the 5th intercontinental plenum of the CNT took place. A group called Entente anarchiste (Anarchist Agreement) appeared, which was formed of militants who did not like the new ideological orientation that the OPB was giving the FCL, considering it authoritarian and almost Marxist. The FCL lasted until 1956 just after it participated in state legislative elections with ten candidates. This move alienated some members of the FCL and thus led to the end of the organization.

There was a strong left-libertarian current in the British labour movement and the term "libertarian socialist" has been applied to a number of democratic socialists, including some prominent members of the British Labour Party. The Socialist League was formed in 1885 by William Morris and others critical of the authoritarian socialism of the Social Democratic Federation. It was involved in the new unionism, the rank-and-file union militancy of the 1880s–1890s, which anticipated syndicalism in some key ways (Tom Mann, a New Unionist leader, was one of the first British syndicalists). The Socialist League was dominated by anarchists by the 1890s. The Independent Labour Party (ILP) formed at that time drew more on the nonconformist religious traditions in the British working class than on Marxist theory and had a libertarian socialist strain. Others in the tradition of the ILP and described as libertarian socialists included Michael Foot and most importantly, G. D. H. Cole. Labour Party minister Peter Hain has written in support of libertarian socialism, identifying an axis involving a "bottom-up vision of socialism, with anarchists at the revolutionary end and democratic socialists [such as himself] at its reformist end" as opposed to the axis of state socialism with Marxist–Leninists at the revolutionary end and social democrats at the reformist end. Another recent mainstream Labour politician who has been described as a libertarian socialist is Robin Cook. Defined in this way, libertarian socialism in the contemporary political mainstream is distinguished from modern social democracy and democratic socialism principally by its political decentralism rather than by its economics. The multi-tendency Socialist Party USA also has a strong libertarian socialist current.

Katja Kipping and Julia Bonk in Germany, Femke Halsema in the Netherlands and Ufuk Uras and the Freedom and Solidarity Party in Turkey are examples of a contemporary libertarian socialist politicians and parties operating within mainstream parliamentary democracies. In Chile, the autonomist organization Izquierda Autónoma (Autonomous Left) in the 2013 Chilean general election gained a seat in the Chilean Parliament through Gabriel Boric, ex-leader of the 2011–2013 Chilean student protests. In 2016, Boric, alongside other persons such as Jorge Sharp, left the party in order to establish the Movimiento Autonomista. In the Chilean municipal elections of October 2016, Sharp was elected Mayor of Valparaíso with a vote of 53%. Currently in the United States, there is a caucus within the larger Democratic Socialists of America called the Libertarian Socialist Caucus: "The LSC promotes a vision of 'libertarian socialism'—a traditional name for anarchism—that goes beyond the confines of traditional social democratic politics". In the Spanish autonomous community of Catalonia, Jacobin reports about the contemporary political party Candidatura d'Unitat Popular (CUP) as follows:

A libertarian socialist and even anarcho-syndicalist character permeates CUP, in the anti-authoritarian tradition of the Catalan left — embodied by Civil War-era organizations like the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT), which was anarcho-syndicalist, or Trotskyists like Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista (POUM). [...] cooperatives and popular cultural centers (casals and ateneus populars) flourished in the late 1990s and 2000s as safe havens for radical socialist communities, economic alternatives, and ideological formations. Many revolutionary youth organizations were born in these cultural centers. [...] In addition to the network of popular cultural centers, the emergence of squatted houses — also known as "self-managed social centers" — further extended this radical sensibility in Catalonia. While not all squatted houses are aligned with separatist socialism, some of the most emblematic houses are more identified with the separatist movement, like the squatted house of Can Vies in Barcelona. [...] Every local assembly represents the essential unit of this popular unity. It represents the neighborhood, the village, the town. [...] Assemblies are sovereign and potentially powerful. They are the cradle of participatory democracy. In some of the towns where CUP holds the power, these open assemblies have received extra responsibilities and "devolved" powers.

Libertarian possibilism

Libertarian possibilism was a political current within the early 20th-century Spanish anarchist movement which advocated achieving the anarchist ends of ending the state and capitalism with participation inside structures of contemporary parliamentary democracy. The name of this political position appeared for the first time between 1922–1923 within the discourse of catalan anarcho-syndicalist Salvador Seguí when he said: "We have to intervene in politics in order to take over the positions of the bourgoise".

Federica Montseny (here in Barcelona, 1977) was minister of health during the Spanish Second Republic.

During the autumn of 1931, the "Manifesto of the 30" was published by militants of the anarchist trade union Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT). Among those who signed it there was the CNT general secretary (1922–1923) Joan Peiro, Ángel Pestaña (general secretary in 1929) and Juan Lopez Sanchez. Their current was called treintismo and they called for a more moderate political line within the Spanish anarchist movement. In 1932, they established the Syndicalist Party which participated in the 1936 Spanish general election and proceeded to be a part of the leftist coalition of parties known as the Popular Front, obtaining two congressmen (Pestaña and Benito Pabon). In 1938, Horacio Prieto, general secretary of the CNT, proposed that the Iberian Anarchist Federation transform itself into a libertarian socialist party and that it participate in national elections.

In November 1936, the Popular Front appointed the prominent anarcha-feminist Federica Montseny as minister of health, becoming the first woman in Spanish history to be a cabinet minister. When the Republican forces lost the Spanish Civil War, the city of Madrid was turned over to the Francoist forces in 1939 by the last non-Francoist mayor of the city, the anarchist Melchor Rodríguez García.

Eco-socialism

Merging aspects of anarchism, ecology, environmentalism, green politics, Marxism and socialism, eco-socialists generally believe that the capitalist system is the cause of social exclusion, inequality and environmental degradation. Eco-socialists criticise many within the Green movement for not going far enough in their critique of the current world system and for not being overtly anti-capitalist. At the same time, eco-socialists would blame the traditional left for overlooking or not properly addressing ecological problems. Eco-socialists are anti-globalisation. Joel Kovel sees globalisation as a force driven by capitalism. In turn, the rapid economic growth encouraged by globalisation causes acute ecological crises. Agrarian socialism is another variant of eco-socialism. A 17th-century movement called the Diggers based their ideas on agrarian socialism.

Eco-socialism goes beyond a criticism of the actions of large corporations and targets the inherent properties of capitalism. Such an analysis follows Marx's theories about the contradiction between use values and exchange values. Within a market economy, goods are not produced to meet needs but are produced to be exchanged for money that we then use to acquire other goods. As we have to keep selling to keep buying, we must persuade others to buy our goods just to ensure our survival, which leads to the production of goods with no previous use that can be sold to sustain our ability to buy other goods. Eco-socialists like Kovel stress that this contradiction has reached a destructive extent, where certain essential activities such as caring for relatives full-time and basic subsistence are unrewarded while unnecessary economic activities earn certain individuals huge fortunes.

Green anarchism is a school of thought within anarchism which puts a particular emphasis on environmental issues. An important early influence was the thought of the American individualist anarchist Henry David Thoreau and his book Walden as well as Leo Tolstoy and Élisée Reclus. In the late 19th century, there emerged a naturist current within individualist anarchist circles in Cuba France, Portugal and Spain.

Some contemporary green anarchists can be described as anarcho-primitivists, or anti-civilization anarchists, although not all green anarchists are primitivists. Likewise, there is a strong critique of modern technology among green anarchists, although not all reject it entirely. Important contemporary currents are anarcho-primitivism and social ecology. Notable contemporary writers espousing green anarchism include Murray Bookchin, Daniel Chodorkoff, anthropologist Brian Morris and people around the Institute for Social Ecology; and those critical of technology such as Layla AbdelRahim, Derrick Jensen, George Draffan and John Zerzan; and others such as Alan Carter.

Social ecologists often criticize the main currents of socialism for their focus and debates about politics and economics instead of a focus on eco-system (human and environmental). This theory promotes libertarian municipalism and green technology. Anarcho-primitivists often criticize mainstream socialism for supporting civilization and modern technology which they believe are inherently based on domination and exploitation. They instead advocate the process of rewilding or reconnecting with the natural environment. Veganarchism is the political philosophy of veganism (more specifically animal liberation) and green anarchism. This encompasses viewing the state as unnecessary and harmful to both human and animals whilst practising a vegan lifestyle.

Georgism

Georgism is an economic philosophy and ideology which holds that people own what they create, but that things found in nature, most importantly land, belong equally to all. The Georgist philosophy is based on the writings of the economist Henry George (1839–1897) and is usually associated with the idea of a single tax on the value of land. His most famous work is Progress and Poverty (1879), a treatise on inequality, the cyclic nature of industrialized economies and the use of the land value tax as a remedy. Georgists argue that a tax on land value is economically efficient, fair and equitable; and that it can generate sufficient revenue so that other taxes (e.g. taxes on profits, sales or income), which are less fair and efficient, can be reduced or eliminated. A tax on land value has been described by many as a progressive tax since it would be paid primarily by the wealthy and would reduce economic inequality.

Georgist ideas heavily influenced the politics of the early 20th century. Political parties that were formed based on Georgist ideas include the Commonwealth Land Party, the Justice Party of Denmark, the Henry George Justice Party and the Single Tax League. Several communities were also initiated with Georgist principles during the height of the philosophy's popularity. Two such communities that still exist are Arden, Delaware, which was founded in 1900 by Frank Stephens and Will Price; and Fairhope, Alabama, which was founded in 1894 by the auspices of the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation. Christian anarchist Leo Tolstoy was enthused by the economic thinking of Henry George, incorporating it approvingly into later works such as Resurrection, the book that played a major factor in his excommunication.

Guild socialism

Main article: Guild socialism

Guild socialism is a political movement advocating workers' control of industry through the medium of trade-related guilds "in an implied contractual relationship with the public". It originated in the United Kingdom and was at its most influential in the first quarter of the 20th century. It was strongly associated with G. D. H. Cole and influenced by the ideas of William Morris.

Guild socialism was partly inspired by the guilds of craftsmen and other skilled workers which had existed in England during the Middle Ages. In 1906, Arthur Penty published Restoration of the Gild System in which he opposed factory production and advocated a return to an earlier period of artisanal production organised through guilds. The following year, the journal The New Age became an advocate of guild socialism, although in the context of modern industry rather than the medieval setting favoured by Penty. The guild socialists "stood for state ownership of industry, combined with "workers' control" through delegation of authority to national guilds organized internally on democratic lines. About the state itself they differed, some believing it would remain more or less in its existing form and others that it would be transformed into a federal body representing the workers' guilds, consumers' organizations, local government bodies, and other social structures".

In 1914, Samuel George Hobson, a leading contributor to The New Age, published National Guilds: An Inquiry into the Wage System and the Way Out. In this work, guilds were presented as an alternative to state-control of industry or conventional trade union activity. Unlike the existing trade unions, guilds would not confine their demands to matters of wages and conditions, but would seek to obtain control of industry for the workers whom they represented. Ultimately, industrial guilds would serve as the organs through which industry would be organised in a future socialist society. The theory of guild socialism was developed and popularised by G. D. H. Cole who formed the National Guilds League in 1915 and published several books on guild socialism, including Self-Government in Industry (1917) and Guild Socialism Restated (1920). For scholar Charles Masquerade, "[i]t is by meeting such a twofold requirement that the libertarian socialism of G.D.H. Cole could be said to offer timely and sustainable avenues for the institutionalization of the liberal value of autonomy...By setting out to 'destroy this predominance of economic factors' (Cole 1980, 180) through the re-organization of key spheres of life into forms of associative action and coordination capable of giving the 'fullest development of functional organisation'...Cole effectively sought to turn political representation into a system actually capable of giving direct recognition to the multiplicity of interests making up highly complex and differentiated societies".

Revolutionary syndicalism

Revolutionary syndicalism is a type of economic system proposed as a replacement for capitalism and an alternative to state socialism, which uses federations of collectivised trade unions or industrial unions. It is a form of socialist economic corporatism that advocates interest aggregation of multiple non-competitive categorised units to negotiate and manage an economy. For adherents, labour unions are the potential means of both overcoming economic aristocracy and running society fairly in the interest of the majority through union democracy. Industry in a syndicalist system would be run through co-operative confederations and mutual aid. Local syndicates would communicate with other syndicates through the Bourse du Travail (labor exchange) which would manage and transfer commodities.

Syndicalism is also used to refer to the tactic of bringing about this social arrangement, typically expounded by anarcho-syndicalism and De Leonism in which a general strike begins and workers seize their means of production and organise in a federation of trade unionism, such as the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT). Throughout its history, the reformist section of syndicalism has been overshadowed by its revolutionary section, typified by the Confédération Générale du Travail in France, the Industrial Workers of the World, the Federación Anarquista Ibérica section of the CNT., the Unione Sindacale Italiana and the Central Organisation of the Workers of Sweden.

Christian anarchism

Main article: Christian anarchism

Christian anarchism is a movement in political theology that combines anarchism and Christianity. It is the belief that there is only one source of authority to which Christians are ultimately answerable, the authority of God as embodied in the teachings of Jesus. More than any other Bible source, the Sermon on the Mount and Jesus' call to not resist evil but turn the other cheek, are used as the basis for Christian anarchism.

Christian anarchists are pacifists and oppose the use of violence, such as war. The foundation of Christian anarchism is a rejection of violence, with Leo Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God Is Within You regarded as a key text. Christian anarchists denounce the state as they claim it is violent, deceitful and when glorified a form of idolatry.

The Tolstoyans were a small Christian anarchist group formed by Tolstoy's companion Vladimir Chertkov (1854–1936) to spread Tolstoy's religious teachings. Prince Peter Kropotkin wrote of Tolstoy in the article on anarchism in the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica while in hundreds of essays over the last twenty years of his life Tolstoy reiterated the anarchist critique of the state and recommended books by Kropotkin and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon to his readers whilst rejecting anarchism's espousal of violent revolutionary means.

Dorothy Day was an American journalist, social activist and devout Catholic convert who advocated the Catholic economic theory of distributism. Day "believed all states were inherently totalitarian" and was a self-labeled anarchist. In the 1930s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker Movement, a nonviolent, pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf. The importance of Day within Catholicism goes to the extent that the cause for Day's canonization is open in the Catholic Church and she is thus formally referred to as a Servant of God.

Ammon Hennacy was an Irish American pacifist, Christian, anarchist and social activist member of the Catholic Worker Movement and a Wobbly. He established the Joe Hill House of Hospitality in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Gandhism

Main article: Gandhism

Gandhism is the collection of inspirations, principles, beliefs and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, who was a major political leader of India and the Indian independence movement. It is a body of ideas and principles that describes the inspiration, vision and the life work of Gandhi. It is particularly associated with his contributions to the idea and practice of nonviolent resistance, sometimes also called civil resistance. Gandhian economics are the socio-economic principles expounded by Gandhi. It is largely characterised by its affinity to the principles and objectives of nonviolent humanistic socialism, but with a rejection of violent class war and promotion of socio-economic harmony. Gandhi's economic ideas also aim to promote spiritual development and harmony with a rejection of materialism. The term Gandhian economics was coined by J. C. Kumarappa, a close supporter of Gandhi. Gandhian economics places importance to means of achieving the aim of development and this means must be non-violent, ethical and truthful in all economic spheres. In order to achieve this means, he advocated trusteeship, decentralization of economic activities, labour intensive technology and priority to weaker sections. Gandhi also had letter communication with Christian anarchist Leo Tolstoy and saw himself as his disciple.

Gandhi challenged future Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the modernizers in the late 1930s who called for rapid industrialization on the Soviet model, which Gandhi denounced as dehumanizing and contrary to the needs of the villages where the great majority of the people lived. After Gandhi's death, Nehru led India to large-scale planning that emphasized modernization and heavy industry while modernizing agriculture through irrigation. Historian Kuruvilla Pandikattu says that "it was Nehru's vision, not Gandhi's, that was eventually preferred by the Indian State". Gandhi was a self-described philosophical anarchist and his vision of India meant an India without an underlying government. He once said that "the ideally nonviolent state would be an ordered anarchy". While political systems are largely hierarchical, with each layer of authority from the individual to the central government have increasing levels of authority over the layer below, Gandhi believed that society should be the exact opposite, where nothing is done without the consent of anyone, down to the individual. His idea was that true self-rule in a country means that every person rules his or herself and that there is no state which enforces laws upon the people.

Gandhian activists such as Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan were involved in the Sarvodaya movement, which sought to promote self-sufficiency amidst India's rural population by encouraging land redistribution, socio-economic reforms and promoting cottage industries. The movement sought to combat the problems of class conflict, unemployment and poverty while attempting to preserve the lifestyle and values of rural Indians, which were eroding with industrialisation and modernisation. Sarvodaya also included Bhoodan, or the gifting of land and agricultural resources by the landlords (called zamindars) to their tenant farmers in a bid to end the medieval system of zamindari. The Conquest of Violence: An Essay on War and Revolution is a book written by dutch anarcho-pacifist Bart de Ligt which deals with nonviolent resistance in part inspired by the ideas of Gandhi. Anarchist historian George Woodcock reports that The Conquest of Violence "was read widely by British and American pacifists during the 1930s and led many of them to adopt an anarchistic point of view".

Platformism

Main article: Platformism

Platformism is a tendency within the wider anarchist movement based on the organisational theories in the tradition of Dielo Truda's Organizational Platform of the General Union of Anarchists (Draft).

Within the New Left

Main article: New Left
Herbert Marcuse, associated with the Frankfurt School of critical theory, was an influential libertarian socialist philosopher of the New Left.

The emergence of the New Left in the 1950s and 1960s led to a revival of interest in libertarian socialism. The New Left's critique of the Old Left's authoritarianism was associated with a strong interest in personal liberty and autonomy (see the thinking of Cornelius Castoriadis) which led to a rediscovery of older socialist traditions, such as left communism, council communism, and the Industrial Workers of the World. In the United States, this was caused by a renewal of anarchism from the 1950s forward through writers such as Paul Goodman and anarcho-pacifism which became influential in the anti-nuclear movement and anti war movements of the time and which incorporated both the influences of Gandhism and Tolstoyan Christian anarchism.

In Australia, the Sydney Push was a predominantly left-wing intellectual subculture in Sydney from the late 1940s to the early 1970s which became associated with the label "Sydney libertarianism". The New Left also led to a revival of anarchism in the 1960s in the United States. Journals like Radical America and Black Mask in the United States and Solidarity, Big Flame and Democracy & Nature, succeeded by The International Journal of Inclusive Democracy, in the United Kingdom introduced a range of left-libertarian ideas to a new generation. social ecology, autonomism and more recently participatory economics and Inclusive Democracy emerged from this. The New Left in the United States also included anarchist, countercultural and hippie-related radical groups such as the Yippies who were led by Abbie Hoffman, The Diggers, Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers and the White Panther Party. By late 1966, The Diggers opened free stores which simply gave away their stock, provided free food, distributed free drugs, gave away money, organized free music concerts and performed works of political art. The Diggers took their name from the original English Diggers led by Gerrard Winstanley and sought to create a mini-society free of money and capitalism. On the other hand, the Yippies employed theatrical gestures, such as advancing a pig ("Pigasus the Immortal") as a candidate for President in 1968, to mock the social status quo. They have been described as a highly theatrical, anti-authoritarian and anarchist youth movement of "symbolic politics". Since they were well known for street theater and politically themed pranks, many of the "old school" political left either ignored or denounced them. According to ABC News: "The group was known for street theater pranks and was once referred to as the 'Groucho Marxists'".

Communalism and social ecology

Social ecology is closely related to the work and ideas of Murray Bookchin and influenced by anarchist Peter Kropotkin. Social ecologists assert that the present ecological crisis has its roots in human social problems and that the domination of human-over-nature stems from the domination of human-over-human.

Bookchin later developed a political philosophy to complement social ecology which he called Communalism (spelled with a capital C to differentiate it from other forms of communalism). While originally conceived as a form of social anarchism, he later developed Communalism into a separate ideology which incorporates what he saw as the most beneficial elements of anarchism, Marxism, syndicalism and radical ecology.

Politically, Communalists advocate a network of directly democratic citizens' assemblies in individual communities or cities organized in a confederated fashion. The method used to achieve this is called libertarian municipalism and involves the establishment of face-to-face democratic institutions which grow and expand confederally with the goal of eventually replacing the nation-state. Unlike anarchists, Communalists are not opposed to taking part in parliamentary politics—especially municipal elections—as long as candidates are libertarian socialist and anti-statist in outlook.

Democratic confederalism

Female fighters of the YPJ play a significant combat role in Rojava.

Democratic confederalism is the proposal of a libertarian socialist political system that "is open towards other political groups and factions. It is flexible, multi-cultural, anti-monopolistic, and consensus-oriented". Abdullah Öcalan, who is the leader of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, founded this ideology while in prison. While originally a Marxist–Leninist organization, the organization modified their views as Öcalan began corresponding with Murray Bookchin and incorporating his ideology. The central pillars of democratic confederalism are social ecology and anarcha-feminism. According to Öcalan, his ideology is rooted in participatory democracy and autonomy at the local level. In his book, he says: "The stronger the participation the more powerful is this kind of democracy. While the nation-state is in contrast to democracy, and even denies it, democratic confederalism constitutes a continuous democratic process".

Participism

Main article: Participism

Participism is a 21st century form of libertarian socialism. It comprises two related economic and political systems called participatory economics or "parecon" and participatory politics or "parpolity".

Parecon is an economic system proposed primarily by activist and political theorist Michael Albert and radical economist Robin Hahnel, among others. It uses participatory decision making as an economic mechanism to guide the production, consumption and allocation of resources in a given society. Proposed as an alternative to contemporary capitalist market economies and also an alternative to centrally planned socialism or coordinatorism, it is described as "an anarchistic economic vision" and it could be considered a form of socialism as under parecon the means of production are owned by the workers. It proposes to attain these ends mainly through the following principles and institutions: workers' and consumers' councils utilizing self-managerial methods for decision making, balanced job complexes, remuneration according to effort and sacrifice and participatory planning. Under parecon, the current monetary system would be replaced with a system of non-transferable "credit" which would cease to exist upon purchase of a commodity.

Parpolity is a theoretical political system proposed by Stephen R. Shalom. It was developed as a political vision to accompany parecon. Participism as a whole is critical of aspects of modern representative democracies and capitalism arguing that the level of political control by the people is not sufficient. To address this problem, parpolity suggests a system of "Nested Councils", which would include every adult member of a given society. Under participism, the state as such would dissolve into a mere coordinating body made up of delegates which would be recallable at any time by the nested council below them.

Inclusive Democracy

Main article: Inclusive Democracy

Inclusive Democracy is a political theory and political project that aim for direct democracy, economic democracy in a stateless, moneyless and marketless economy, self-management (democracy in the social realm) and ecological democracy. As distinguished from the political project which is part of the democratic and autonomy traditions, the theoretical project of Inclusive Democracy emerged from the work of political philosopher, former academic and activist Takis Fotopoulos in Towards An Inclusive Democracy and was further developed by him and other writers in the journal Democracy & Nature and its successor The International Journal of Inclusive Democracy, an electronic journal freely available and published by the International Network for Inclusive Democracy.

According to Arran Gare, Towards an Inclusive Democracy "offers a powerful new interpretation of the history and destructive dynamics of the market and provides an inspiring new vision of the future in place of both neo-liberalism and existing forms of socialism". As David Freeman points out, although Fotopoulos' approach "is not openly anarchism, yet anarchism seems the formal category within which he works, given his commitment to direct democracy, municipalism and abolition of state, money and market economy".

An artificial market is proposed by this tendency as a solution to the problem of maintaining freedom of choice for the consumer within a marketless and moneyless economy, an artificial market operates in much the same way as traditional markets, but uses labour vouchers or personal credit in place of traditional money. According to Takis Fotopoulos, an artificial market "secures real freedom of choice, without incurring the adverse effects associated with real markets".

Insurrectionary anarchism

Insurrectionary anarchism is a revolutionary theory, practice and tendency within the anarchist movement which emphasizes the theme of insurrection within anarchist practice. It is critical of formal organizations such as labor unions and federations that are based on a political programme and periodic congresses. Instead, insurrectionary anarchists advocate informal organization and small affinity group-based organization. Insurrectionary anarchists put value in attack, permanent class conflict and a refusal to negotiate or compromise with class enemies.

Contemporary insurrectionary anarchism inherits the views and tactics of anti-organizational anarcho-communism and illegalism. Between 1880 and 1890, with the "perspective of an immanent revolution", who was "opposed to the official workers' movement", which was then in the process of formation (general social democratisation). They were opposed not only to political and statist struggles, but also to strikes which put forward wage or other claims, or which were organised by trade unions. However, "[w]hile they were not opposed to strikes as such—they were opposed to trade unions and the struggle for the eight-hour day. This anti-reformist tendency was accompanied by an anti-organisational tendency, and its partisans declared themselves in favour of agitation amongst the unemployed for the expropriation of foodstuffs and other articles, for the expropriatory strike and, in some cases, for 'individual recuperation' or acts of terrorism". A resurgence of such ideas happened "in the peculiar conditions of postwar Italy and Greece".

Magonism and neo-Zapatismo

Main articles: Magonism and Neozapatismo

The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional, EZLN) often referred to as the zapatistas is a revolutionary leftist group based in Chiapas, the southernmost state of Mexico. Since 1994, the group has been in a declared war "against the Mexican state", though this war has been primarily nonviolent and defensive against military, paramilitary and corporate incursions into Chiapas. Their social base is mostly rural indigenous people, but they have some supporters in urban areas and internationally. Their former spokesperson was Subcomandante Marcos (also known as Delegate Zero in relation to The Other Campaign). Unlike other Zapatist spokespeople, Marcos is not an indigenous Maya. Since December 1994, the Zapatistas had been gradually forming several autonomous municipalities, called Rebel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities (MAREZ). In these municipalities, an assembly of local representatives forms the Juntas de Buen Gobierno or Councils of Good Government (JBGs). These are not recognized by the federal or state governments and they oversee local community programs on food, health and education as well as taxation. The EZLN political formations have happened in two phases generally called Aquascalientes and Caracoles.

The group takes its name from Emiliano Zapata (the agrarian reformer and commander of the Liberation Army of the South during the Mexican Revolution) and sees itself as his ideological heir. Zapatista originally referred to a member of the revolutionary guerrilla movement founded about 1910 by Zapata. His Liberation Army of the South (Ejército Libertador del Sur) fought during the Mexican Revolution for the redistribution of agricultural land. Zapata and his army and allies, including Pancho Villa, fought for agrarian reform in Mexico. Specifically, they wanted to establish communal land rights for Mexico's indigenous population, which had mostly lost its land to the wealthy elite of European descent. Zapata was partly influenced by an anarchist from Oaxaca named Ricardo Flores Magón. The influence of Flores Magón on Zapata can be seen in the Zapatist' Plan de Ayala, but even more noticeably in their slogan (this slogan was never used by Zapata) Tierra y libertad or "Land and liberty", the title and maxim of Flores Magón's most famous work. Zapata's introduction to anarchism came via a local schoolteacher, Otilio Montaño Sánchez—later a general in Zapata's army, executed on 17 May 1917—who exposed Zapata to the works of Peter Kropotkin and Flores Magón at the same time as Zapata was observing and beginning to participate in the struggles of the peasants for the land.

In reference to inspirational figures, in nearly all EZLN villages exist murals accompanying images of Zapata, Che Guevara and Subcomandante Marcos. The ideology of the Zapatista movement, Zapatism, synthesizes traditional Mayan practices with elements of libertarian socialism, anarchism and Marxism. The historical influence of Mexican anarchists and various Latin American socialists is apparent on Zapatism as with the positions of Subcomandante Marcos also adding a distinct Marxist element to the movement according to The New York Times. A Zapatist slogan is in harmony with the concept of mutual aid: "For everyone, everything. For us, nothing" (Para todos, todo. Para nosotros, nada).

Left-wing market anarchism

Left-wing market anarchism is a left-libertarian and individualist anarchist form of libertarian socialism associated with scholars such as Kevin Carson, Roderick T. Long, Charles W. Johnson, Brad Spangler, Samuel Edward Konkin III, Chris Matthew Sciabarra and Gary Chartier, who stress the value of radically free markets, termed freed markets to distinguish them from the common conception which these libertarians believe to be riddled with statist and capitalist privileges. Referred to as left-wing market anarchists or market-oriented left-libertarians, proponents of this approach strongly affirm the classical liberal ideas of self-ownership and free markets while maintaining that taken to their logical conclusions, these ideas support anti-capitalist, anti-corporatist, anti-hierarchical, pro-labor positions in economics; anti-imperialism in foreign policy; and thoroughly liberal or radical views regarding cultural and social issues such as gender, sexuality and race.

The genealogy of contemporary market-oriented left-libertarianism, sometimes labeled left-wing market anarchism, overlaps to a significant degree with that of Steiner–Vallentyne left-libertarianism as the roots of that tradition are sketched in the book The Origins of Left-Libertarianism. Carson–Long-style left-libertarianism is rooted in 19th century mutualism and in the work of figures such as Thomas Hodgskin and the individualist anarchists Benjamin Tucker and Lysander Spooner. While with notable exceptions market-oriented libertarians after Tucker tended to ally with the political right, relationships between such libertarians and the New Left thrived in the 1960s, laying the groundwork for modern left-wing market anarchism. Left-wing market anarchism identifies with left libertarianism (or left-wing libertarianism) which names several related yet distinct approaches to politics, society, culture and political and social theory, which stress both individual freedom and social justice. Unlike right-libertarians, they believe that neither claiming nor mixing one's labor with natural resources is enough to generate full private property rights and maintain that natural resources (land, oil, gold and trees) ought to be held in some egalitarian manner, either unowned or owned collectively. Those left-libertarians who support private property do so under the condition that recompense is offered to the local community.

Communization

Main article: Communization

Communization is a contemporary communist theory in which we find is a "mixing-up of insurrectionist anarchism, the communist ultra-left, post-autonomists, anti-political currents, groups like the Invisible Committee, as well as more explicitly 'communizing' currents, such as Théorie Communiste and Endnotes. Obviously at the heart of the word is communism and, as the shift to communization suggests, communism as a particular activity and process".

The association of the term communization with a self-identified ultra-left was cemented in France in the 1970s, where it came to describe not a transition to a higher phase of communism, but a vision of communist revolution itself. The 1975 Pamphlet A World Without Money thus states: "insurrection and communisation are intimately linked. There would not be first a period of insurrection and then later, thanks to this insurrection, the transformation of social reality. The insurrectional process derives its force from communisation itself". The term is still used in this sense in France today and has spread into English usage as a result of the translation of texts by Gilles Dauvé and Théorie Comuniste, two key figures in this tendency. In collaboration with other left communists such as François Martin and Karl Nesic, Dauvé has attempted to fuse, critique and develop different left communist currents, most notably the Italian movement associated with Amadeo Bordiga (and its heretical journal Invariance), German Dutch council communism and the French perspectives associated with Socialisme ou Barbarie and the Situationist International.

In the late 1990s, a close yet not identical sense of communization was developed by the French post-situationist group Tiqqun. In keeping with their ultra-left predecessors, Tiqqun's predilection for the term seems to be its emphasis on communism as an immediate process rather than a far-off goal, but for Tiqqun it is no longer synonymous with the revolution, considered as an historical event, but rather becomes identifiable with all sorts of activities—from squatting and setting up communes to simply sharing—that would typically be understood as pre-revolutionary. From an ultra-left perspective, such a politics of "dropping-out" or, as Tiqqun put it, "desertion"—setting up spaces and practices that are held to partially autonomous from capitalism—is typically dismissed as either naive or reactionary. Due to the popularity of the Tiqqun-related works Call and The Coming Insurrection in the American anarchist circles, it tended to be this latter sense of "communization" that was employed in American anarchist and insurrectionist communiques, notably within the Californian student movement of 2009–2010.

The global Occupy movement is noted to have distinct libertarian socialist principles.

A surge of popular interest in libertarian socialism occurred in Western nations during the 1960s and 1970s. Anarchism was influential in the counterculture of the 1960s and anarchists actively participated in the late 1960s students and workers revolts. In 1968, the International of Anarchist Federations was founded during an international anarchist conference held in Carrara by the three existing European federations of France, the Italian and the Iberian Anarchist Federation as well as the Bulgarian Anarchist Federation in French exile. The uprisings of May 1968 also led to a small resurgence of interest in left communist ideas. Various small left communist groups emerged around the world, predominantly in the leading capitalist countries. A series of conferences of the communist left began in 1976, with the aim of promoting international and cross-tendency discussion, but these petered out in the 1980s without having increased the profile of the movement or its unity of ideas. Prominent left communist groups existing today include the International Communist Party, International Communist Current and the Internationalist Communist Tendency. The housing and employment crisis in most of Western Europe led to the formation of communes and squatter movements like that of Barcelona, Spain. In Denmark, squatters occupied a disused military base and declared the Freetown Christiania, an autonomous haven in central Copenhagen.

Around the turn of the 21st century, libertarian socialism grew in popularity and influence as part of the anti-war, anti-capitalist and anti-globalisation movements. Anarchists became known for their involvement in protests against the meetings of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Group of Eight (G8) and the World Economic Forum (WEF). Some anarchist factions at these protests engaged in rioting, property destruction and violent confrontations with police. These actions were precipitated by ad hoc, leaderless, anonymous cadres known as black blocs—other organisational tactics pioneered in this time include security culture, affinity groups and the use of decentralised technologies such as the internet. A significant event of this period was the confrontations at WTO conference in Seattle in 1999. For English anarchist scholar Simon Critchley, "contemporary anarchism can be seen as a powerful critique of the pseudo-libertarianism of contemporary neo-liberalism...One might say that contemporary anarchism is about responsibility, whether sexual, ecological or socio-economic; it flows from an experience of conscience about the manifold ways in which the West ravages the rest; it is an ethical outrage at the yawning inequality, impoverishment and disenfranchisment that is so palpable locally and globally". This might also have been motivated by "the collapse of 'really existing socialism' and the capitulation to neo-liberalism of Western social democracy".

International anarchist federations in existence include the International of Anarchist Federations (IAF), the International Workers' Association (IWA) and International Libertarian Solidarity (ILS). The largest organised anarchist movement today is in Spain in the form of the Confederación General del Trabajo (CGT) and the Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT). CGT membership was estimated to be around 100,000 for 2003.

Libertarian socialists in the early 21st century have been involved in the alter-globalization movement, squatter movement; social centers; infoshops; anti-poverty groups such as Ontario Coalition Against Poverty and Food Not Bombs; tenants' unions; housing cooperatives; intentional communities generally and egalitarian communities; anti-sexist organizing; grassroots media initiatives; digital media and computer activism; experiments in participatory economics; anti-racist and anti-fascist groups like Anti-Racist Action and Anti-Fascist Action; activist groups protecting the rights of immigrants and promoting the free movement of people, such as the No Border network; worker co-operatives, countercultural and artist groups; and the peace movement. Libertarian socialism has also more recently played a large part in the global Occupy movement, in particular its focus on direct participatory democracy.

One important pioneer is French anarcho-communists Joseph Déjacque (1821–1864), who [...] appears to have been the first thinker to adopt the term 'libertarian' for this position; hence 'libertarianism' initially denoted a communist rather than a free-market ideology."

[...] An approach to socialism that incorporates cultural revolution, women's and children's liberation, and the critique and transformation of daily life, as well as the more traditional concerns of socialist politics. A politics that is completely revolutionary because it seeks to transform all of reality. We do not think that capturing the economy and the state lead automatically to the transformation of the rest of social being, nor do we equate liberation with changing our life-styles and our heads. Capitalism is a total system that invades all areas of life: socialism must be the overcoming of capitalist reality in its entirety, or it is nothing."

Libertarian socialism, furthermore, does not limit its aims to democratic control by producers over production, but seeks to abolish all forms of domination and hierarchy in every aspect of social and personal life, an unending struggle, since progress in achieving a more just society will lead to new insight and understanding of forms of oppression that may be concealed in traditional practice and consciousness.

"Authority is defined in terms of the right to exercise social control (as explored in the "sociology of power") and the correlative duty to obey (as explored in the "philosophy of practical reason"). Anarchism is distinguished, philosophically, by its scepticism towards such moral relations – by its questioning of the claims made for such normative power – and, practically, by its challenge to those "authoritative" powers which cannot justify their claims and which are therefore deemed illegitimate or without moral foundation."

"Anarchism, then, really stands for the liberation of the human mind from the dominion of religion; the liberation of the human body from the dominion of property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of government. Anarchism stands for a social order based on the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth; an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life, according to individual desires, tastes, and inclinations."
  32. Tucker, Benjamin (1926). Individual Liberty. Individualist anarchist Benjamin Tucker defined anarchism as opposition to authority as follows: "They found that they must turn either to the right or to the left, – follow either the path of Authority or the path of Liberty. Marx went one way; Warren and Proudhon the other. Thus were born State Socialism and Anarchism. [...] Authority, takes many shapes, but, broadly speaking, her enemies divide themselves into three classes: first, those who abhor her both as a means and as an end of progress, opposing her openly, avowedly, sincerely, consistently, universally; second, those who profess to believe in her as a means of progress, but who accept her only so far as they think she will subserve their own selfish interests, denying her and her blessings to the rest of the world; third, those who distrust her as a means of progress, believing in her only as an end to be obtained by first trampling upon, violating, and outraging her. These three phases of opposition to Liberty are met in almost every sphere of thought and human activity. Good representatives of the first are seen in the Catholic Church and the Russian autocracy; of the second, in the Protestant Church and the Manchester school of politics and political economy; of the third, in the atheism of Gambetta and the socialism of Karl Marx."

"In some ways, it is perhaps fair to say that if Left communism is an intellectual- political formation, it is so, first and foremost, negatively – as opposed to other socialist traditions. I have labelled this negative pole 'socialist orthodoxy', composed of both Leninists and social democrats. [...] What I suggested was that these Left communist thinkers differentiated their own understandings of communism from a strand of socialism that came to follow a largely electoral road in the West, pursuing a kind of social capitalism, and a path to socialism that predominated in the peripheral and semi- peripheral countries, which sought revolutionary conquest of power and led to something like state capitalism. Generally, the Left communist thinkers were to find these paths locked within the horizons of capitalism (the law of value, money, private property, class, the state), and they were to characterize these solutions as statist, substitutionist and authoritarian."

Later it became a term for the left or Konkinite wing of the free-market libertarian movement, and has since come to cover a range of pro-market but anti-capitalist positions, mostly individualist anarchist, including agorism and mutualism, often with an implication of sympathies (such as for radical feminism or the labor movement) not usually shared by anarcho-capitalists. In a third sense it has recently come to be applied to a position combining individual self-ownership with an egalitarian approach to natural resources; most proponents of this position are not anarchists".

Su obra más representativa es Walden, aparecida en 1854, aunque redactada entre 1845 y 1847, cuando Thoreau decide instalarse en el aislamiento de una cabaña en el bosque, y vivir en íntimo contacto con la naturaleza, en una vida de soledad y sobriedad. De esta experiencia, su filosofía trata de transmitirnos la idea que resulta necesario un retorno respetuoso a la naturaleza, y que la felicidad es sobre todo fruto de la riqueza interior y de la armonía de los individuos con el entorno natural. Muchos han visto en Thoreau a uno de los precursores del ecologismo y del anarquismo primitivista representado en la actualidad por John Zerzan. Para George Woodcock, esta actitud puede estar también motivada por una cierta idea de resistencia al progreso y de rechazo al materialismo creciente que caracteriza la sociedad norteamericana de mediados de siglo XIX.

Gerrard Winstanley, the Diggers' leader, made an identification with the word of God and the principle of reason, an equivalent philosophy to that found in Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God is Within You.

Such free-standing farmers, Jefferson thought, were the basis of a vigorous and independent public sphere where citizens could speak their mind without fear or favor. Somewhere in between these two poles lies the contemporary situation of most citizens of Western democracies: a relatively open public sphere but a quotidian institutional experience that is largely at cross purposes with the implicit assumptions behind this public sphere and encouraging and often rewarding caution, deference, servility, and conformity."

"The economic principles of Modern Socialism are a logical deduction from the principle laid down by Adam Smith in the early chapters of his "Wealth of Nations," – namely, that labor is the true measure of price...Half a century or more after Smith enunciated the principle above stated, Socialism picked it up where he had dropped it, and in following it to its logical conclusions, made it the basis of a new economic philosophy...This seems to have been done independently by three different men, of three different nationalities, in three different languages: Josiah Warren, an American; Pierre J. Proudhon, a Frenchman; Karl Marx, a German Jew...That the work of this interesting trio should have been done so nearly simultaneously would seem to indicate that Socialism was in the air, and that the time was ripe and the conditions favorable for the appearance of this new school of thought...So far as priority of time is concerned, the credit seems to belong to Warren, the American, – a fact which should be noted by the stump orators who are so fond of declaiming against Socialism as an imported article."

Porque si en la tierra de los ciegos el tuerto es rey, en donde todos ven y juzgan y disciernen, el rey estorba. Y de lo que se trata es de que no haya reyes porque todos sean hombres. Las grandes empresas industriales las transformarán los hombres en grandes asociaciones donde todos trabajen y disfruten del producto de su trabajo. Y de esos tan sencillos como hermosos problemas trata el anarquismo y al que lo cumple y vive es al que se le llama anarquista...El hincapié que sin cansancio debe hacer el anarquista es el de que nadie debe explotar a nadie, ningún hombre a ningún hombre, porque esa no-explotación llevaría consigo la limitación de la propiedad a las necesidades individuales."Anarquismo by Miguel Giménez Igualada

Wilde, as we have seen, declared himself an anarchist on at least one occasion during the 1890s, and he greatly admired Kropotkin, whom he had met. Later, in De Profundis, he described Kropotkin's life as one "of the most perfect lives I have come across in my own experience" and talked of him as "a man with a soul of that beautiful white Christ that seems coming out of Russia." But in The Soul of Man Under Socialism, which appeared in 1890, it is Godwin rather than Kropotkin whose influence seems dominant." George Woodcock.

  212. "Outside and against this process of turning of Marxism into an ideology of domination, however, were various revolutionary tendencies which still drew on Marx's work to inform their struggles and which rejected both social- democratic and Marxist-Leninist versions of his theory. The most interesting of these, those that are relevant to my current purpose, have been those which insisted on the primacy of the self-activity and creativity of people in struggle against capitalism. Within the space of these tendencies there has developed a coherent critique of "orthodox Marxism" that includes not only a rejection of the concept of "the transition" but a reconceptualization of the process of transcending capitalism that has remarkable similarities to Kropotkin's thinking on this subject. ... Thus one of the earliest political tendencies within which this approach appeared after the Russian revolution of 1917 was that of "Council communism" which saw the "workers councils" in Germany (see Bavarian Soviet Republic), or the soviets in Russia, as new organizational forms constructed by the people. As with the anarchists, they too saw the Bolshevik take-over of the soviets (like that of the trade unions) as subverting the revolution and beginning the restoration of domination and exploitation. ... Over the years this emphasis on working class autonomy has resulted in a reinterpretation of Marxist theory that has brought out the two-sided character of the class struggle and shifted the focus from capital (the preoccupation of orthodox Marxism) to the workers. ... As a result, not only has there been a recognition that capitalism seeks to subordinate everyone's life (from the traditional factory proletariat to peasants, housewives and students) but that all those peoples' struggles involve both the resistance to this subordination and the effort to construct alternative ways of being."Cleaver, Harry.

"Si la critique de la déviation autoritaire de la FA est le principal fait de ralliement, on peut ressentir dès le premier numéro un état d'esprit qui va longtemps coller à la peau des anarchistes français. Cet état d'esprit se caractérise ainsi sous une double forme : d'une part un rejet inconditionnel de l'ennemi marxiste, d'autre part des questions sur le rôle des anciens et de l'évolution idéologique de l'anarchisme. C'est Fernand Robert qui attaque le premier : "Le LIB est devenu un journal marxiste. En continuant à le soutenir, tout en reconnaissant qu'il ne nous plaît pas, vous faîtes une mauvaise action contre votre idéal anarchiste. Vous donnez la main à vos ennemis dans la pensée. Même si la FA disparaît, même si le LIB disparaît, l'anarchie y gagnera. Le marxisme ne représente plus rien. Il faut le mettre bas; je pense la même chose des dirigeants actuels de la FA. L'ennemi se glisse partout." Cédric Guérin. "Pensée et action des anarchistes en France : 1950–1970"

Positive freedom is the emancipation of citizens from poverty and discrimination. Halsema wants to apply this concept to welfare state and the environment where government should take more action.

In the 1900 essay, "On Anarchy", he wrote; "The Anarchists are right in everything; in the negation of the existing order, and in the assertion that, without Authority, there could not be worse violence than that of Authority under existing conditions. They are mistaken only in thinking that Anarchy can be instituted by a revolution. But it will be instituted only by there being more and more people who do not require the protection of governmental power ... There can be only one permanent revolution – a moral one: the regeneration of the inner man." Despite his misgivings about anarchist violence, Tolstoy took risks to circulate the prohibited publications of anarchist thinkers in Russia, and corrected the proofs of Kropotkin's "Words of a Rebel", illegally published in St Petersburg in 1906.

Because I have been behind bars in police stations, houses of detention, jails and prison farms, whatsoever they are called, eleven times, and have refused to pay Federal income taxes and have never voted, they accept me as an anarchist.

As such "In the forties and fifties, anarchism, in fact if not in name, began to reappear, often in alliance with pacifism, as the basis for a critique of militarism on both sides of the Cold War.[3] The anarchist/pacifist wing of the peace movement was small in comparison with the wing of the movement that emphasized electoral work, but made an important contribution to the movement as a whole. Where the more conventional wing of the peace movement rejected militarism and war under all but the most dire circumstances, the anarchist/pacifist wing rejected these on principle.""Anarchism and the Anti-Globalization Movement" by Barbara Epstein "In the 1950s and 1960s anarcho-pacifism began to gel, tough-minded anarchists adding to the mixture their critique of the state, and tender-minded pacifists their critique of violence.

Young militants finding their way to anarchism, often from the anti-bomb and anti-Vietnam war movements, linked up with an earlier generation of activists, largely outside the ossified structures of 'official' anarchism.

Within the nascent women's movement, anarchist principles became so widespread that a political science professor denounced what she saw as "The Tyranny of Structurelessness."

  348. "Within the movements of the sixties there was much more receptivity to anarchism-in-fact than had existed in the movements of the thirties...But the movements of the sixties were driven by concerns that were more compatible with an expressive style of politics, with hostility to authority in general and state power in particular...By the late sixties, political protest was intertwined with cultural radicalism based on a critique of all authority and all hierarchies of power. Anarchism circulated within the movement along with other radical ideologies. The influence of anarchism was strongest among radical feminists, in the commune movement, and probably in the Weather Underground and elsewhere in the violent fringe of the anti-war movement."

22 Libertarian socialists advocate for decentralized structures based on direct democracy and federal or confederal associations 23 such as citizens popular assemblies cooperatives libertarian

libertarian socialism 5 Libertarian socialist periodicals 6 See also 7 References 8 Sources 9 External linksOverview EditDefinition Edit See also Definition of anarchism and libertarianism Libertarian socialism is a Western philosophy with diverse interpretations although some general commonalities can be found in its many incarnations It advocates a worker oriented system of production and organization in the workplace that in some aspects radically departs from neoclassical economics in favor of democratic cooperatives or common ownership of the means of production socialism 51 They propose that this economic system be executed in a manner that attempts to maximize the liberty of individuals and minimize concentration of power or authority libertarianism Adherents propose achieving this through decentralization of political and economic power usually involving the socialization of most large scale private property and enterprise while retaining respect for personal property Libertarian socialism tends to deny the legitimacy of most forms of economically significant private property viewing capitalist property relation as a form of domination that is antagonistic to individual freedom 52 The 17 August 1860 edition of French libertarian communist publication Le Libertaire edited by Joseph Dejacque The first anarchist journal to use the term libertarian was Le Libertaire Journal du Mouvement Social and it was published in New York City between 1858 and 1861 by French libertarian communist Joseph Dejacque 53 The next recorded use of the term was in Europe when libertarian communism was used at a French regional anarchist Congress at Le Havre 16 22 November 1880 January 1881 saw a French manifesto issued on Libertarian or Anarchist Communism Finally 1895 saw leading anarchists Sebastien Faure and Louise Michel publish Le Libertaire in France 53 The term itself stems from the French cognate libertaire which was used to evade the French ban on anarchist publications 54 In this tradition the term libertarianism is generally used as a synonym for anarchism the original meaning of the term 55 In the context of the European socialist movement the term libertarian has been conventionally used to describe socialists who opposed authoritarianism and state socialism such as Mikhail Bakunin and largely overlaps with social anarchism 56 57 although individualist anarchism is also libertarian socialist 58 Non Lockean individualism encompasses socialism including libertarian socialism 59 Noam Chomsky is one of the most well known contemporary libertarian socialist thinkers The association of socialism with libertarianism predates that of capitalism and many anti authoritarians still decry what they see as a mistaken association of capitalism with libertarianism in the United States 60 As Noam Chomsky put it a consistent libertarian must oppose private ownership of the means of production and wage slavery which is a component of this system as incompatible with the principle that labor must be freely undertaken and under the control of the producer 61 Terms such as anarchist socialism anarcho socialism free socialism stateless socialism socialist anarchismand socialist libertarianism have all been used to refer to the anarchist wing of libertarian socialism 8 or vis a vis authoritarian forms of socialism 62 63 In a chapter of his Economic Justice and Democracy 2005 recounting the history of libertarian socialism economist Robin Hahnel relates that the period where libertarian socialism has had its greatest impact was at the end of the 19th century through the first four decades of the 20th century According to Hahnel libertarian socialism was as powerful a force as social democracy and communism in the early 20th century The Anarchist St Imier International referred by Hahnel as the Libertarian International was founded at the 1872 Congress of St Imier a few days after the split between Marxist and libertarians at The Hague Congress of the First International referred by Hahnel as the Socialist International This Libertarian International competed successfully against social democrats and communists alike for the loyalty of anticapitalist activists revolutionaries workers unions and political parties for over fifty years For Hahnel libertarian socialists played a major role in the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917 Libertarian socialists played a dominant role in the Mexican Revolution of 1911 Twenty years after World War I was over libertarian socialists were still strong enough to spearhead the social revolution that swept across Republican Spain in 1936 and 1937 64 On the other hand a libertarian trend also developed within Marxism which gained visibility around the late 1910s mainly in reaction against Bolshevism and Leninism rising to power and establishing the Soviet Union 65 66 67 Libertarian socialists argue these states were in the process of transitioning from capitalism to socialism following Leninist doctrine and never reached further stages of development 68 Libertarian socialists seek the abolition of the state without going through a state capitalist transitionary stage 69 In his preface to Peter Kropotkin s book The Conquest of Bread Kent Bromley considered French utopian socialist Charles Fourier to be the founder of the libertarian branch of socialist thought as opposed to the authoritarian socialist ideas of the French Francois Noel Babeuf and the Italian Philippe Buonarroti 50 Anti capitalism Edit Main article Anti capitalism According to John O Neil i t is forgotten that the early defenders of commercial society like Adam Smith were as much concerned with criticising the associational blocks to mobile labour represented by guilds as they were to the activities of the state The history of socialist thought includes a long associational and anti statist tradition prior to the political victory of the Bolshevism in the east and varieties of Fabianism in the west 70 Libertarian socialism is anti capitalist and can be distinguished from capitalist and right libertarian principles which concentrate economic power in the hands of those who own the most capital Libertarian socialism aims to distribute power more widely among members of society Libertarian socialism and right libertarian ideologies such as neoliberalism differ in that advocates of the former generally believe that one s degree of freedom is affected by one s economic and social status whereas advocates of the latter believe in the freedom of choice within a capitalist framework specifically under capitalist private property 71 This is sometimes characterized as a desire to maximize free creativity in a society in preference to free enterprise 72 Within anarchism there emerged a critique of wage slavery which refers to a situation perceived as quasi voluntary slavery 73 where a person s livelihood depends on wages especially when the dependence is total and immediate 74 75 It is a negatively connoted term used to draw an analogy between slavery and wage labor by focusing on similarities between owning and renting a person The term wage slavery has been used to criticize economic exploitation and social stratification with the former seen primarily as unequal bargaining power between labor and capital particularly when workers are paid comparatively low wages e g in sweatshops 76 and the latter as a lack of workers self management fulfilling job choices and leisure in an economy 77 78 79 Libertarian socialists believe that by valuing freedom society works towards a system in which individuals have the power to decide economic issues along with political issues Libertarian socialists seek to replace unjustified authority with direct democracy voluntary federation and popular autonomy in all aspects of life 80 including physical communities and economic enterprises With the advent of the Industrial Revolution thinkers such as Pierre Joseph Proudhon and Karl Marx elaborated the comparison between wage labor and slavery in the context of a critique of societal property not intended for active personal use 81 82 Luddites emphasized the dehumanization brought about by machines while later Emma Goldman famously denounced wage slavery by saying The only difference is that you are hired slaves instead of block slaves 83 Many libertarian socialists believe that large scale voluntary associations should manage industrial production while workers retain rights to the individual products of their labor 84 They see a distinction between concepts of private property and personal possession Private property grants an individual exclusive control over a thing whether it is in use or not and regardless of its productive capacity possession grants no rights to things that are not in use 85 Furthermore the separation of work and life is questioned and alternatives suggested that are underpinned by notions of dignity self realization and freedom from domination and exploitation Here a freedom that is not restrictively negative as in neo liberal conceptions but is as well positive connected that is to views about human flourishing is important a profoundly embedded understanding of freedom which ties freedom to its social communal conditions and importantly refuses to separate questions of freedom from those of equality 86 Anti authoritarianism and opposition to the state Edit Main articles Anti authoritarianism and Anti statism Libertarian philosophy generally regard concentrations of power as sources of oppression that must be continually challenged and justified Most libertarian socialists believe that when power is exercised as exemplified by the economic social or physical dominance of one individual over another the burden of proof is always on the authoritarian to justify their action as legitimate when taken against its effect of narrowing the scope of human freedom 87 Libertarian socialists typically oppose rigid and stratified structures of authority be they political economic or social 88 In lieu of corporations and states libertarian socialists seek to organize society into voluntary associations usually collectives communes municipalities cooperatives commons or syndicates that use direct democracy or consensus for their decision making process Some libertarian socialists advocate combining these institutions using rotating recallable delegates to higher level federations 89 Spanish anarchism is a major example of such federations in practice Contemporary examples of libertarian socialist organizational and decision making models in practice include a number of anti capitalist and global justice movements 90 including Zapatista Councils of Good Government and the global Indymedia network which covers 45 countries on six continents There are also many examples of indigenous societies around the world whose political and economic systems can be accurately described as anarchist or libertarian socialist each of which is uniquely suited to the culture that birthed it 91 For libertarians that diversity of practice within a framework of common principles is proof of the vitality of those principles and of their flexibility and strength Contrary to popular opinion libertarian socialism has not traditionally been a utopian movement tending to avoid dense theoretical analysis or prediction of what a future society would or should look like The tradition instead has been that such decisions cannot be made now and must be made through struggle and experimentation so that the best solution can be arrived at democratically and organically and to base the direction for struggle on established historical example They point out that the success of the scientific method comes from its adherence to open rational exploration not its conclusions in sharp contrast to dogma and predetermined predictions Noted anarchist Rudolf Rocker once stated I am an anarchist not because I believe anarchism is the final goal but because there is no such thing as a final goal 92 Because libertarian socialism encourages exploration and embraces a diversity of ideas rather than forming a compact movement there have arisen inevitable controversies over individuals who describe themselves as libertarian socialists yet disagree with some of the core principles of libertarian socialism Peter Hain interprets libertarian socialism as minarchist rather than anarchist favoring radical decentralization of power without going as far as the complete abolition of the state 93 Libertarian socialist Noam Chomsky supports dismantling all forms of unjustified social or economic power while also emphasizing that state intervention should be supported as a temporary protection while oppressive structures remain in existence 94 Similarly Peter Marshall includes the decentralist who wishes to limit and devolve State power to the syndicalist who wants to abolish it altogether It can even encompass the Fabians and the social democrats who wish to socialize the economy but who still see a limited role for the State 19 Proponents are known for opposing the existence of states or government and refusing to participate in coercive state institutions In the past many refused to swear oaths in court or to participate in trials even when they faced imprisonment 95 or deportation 96 For Chamsy el Ojeili it is frequently to forms of working class or popular self organization that Left communists look in answer to the questions of the struggle for socialism revolution and post capitalist social organization Nevertheless Left communists have often continued to organize themselves into party like structures that undertake agitation propaganda education and other forms of political intervention This is a vexed issue across Left communism and has resulted in a number of significant variations from the absolute rejection of separate parties in favour of mere study or affinity groups to the critique of the naivety of pure spontaneism and an insistence on the necessary though often modest role of disciplined self critical and popularly connected communist organizations 97 Civil liberties and individual freedom Edit Main articles Anarcha feminism Individualist anarchism and Queer anarchism See also Anarchism and education Anarchism and issues related to love and sex Anarchism and religion Free love and Freethought Libertarian socialists have been strong advocates and activists of civil liberties including freedom of speech freedom of religion freedom of assembly and other civil liberties 98 that provide an individual specific rights such as the freedom in issues of love and sex free love and of thought and conscience freethought In this activism they have clashed with state and religious institutions which have limited such rights Anarchism has been an important advocate of free love since its birth A strong tendency of free love later appeared alongside anarcha feminism and advocacy of LGBT rights In recent times anarchism has also voiced opinions and taken action around certain sex related subjects such as pornography 99 BDSM 100 and the sex industry 100 American anarchist Emma Goldman prominent anarcha feminist free love and freethought activist Anarcha feminism developed as a synthesis of radical feminism and anarchism that views patriarchy male domination over women as a fundamental manifestation of compulsory government It was inspired by the late 19th century writings of early feminist anarchists such as Lucy Parsons Emma Goldman Voltairine de Cleyre and Virginia Bolten Like other radical feminists anarcha feminists criticise and advocate the abolition of traditional conceptions of family education and gender roles Council communist Sylvia Pankhurst was also a feminist activist as well as a libertarian Marxist Anarchists also took a pioneering interest in issues related to LGBTI persons An important current within anarchism is free love 101 Free love advocates sometimes traced their roots back to the early anarchist Josiah Warren and to experimental communities viewed sexual freedom as a clear direct expression of an individual s self ownership Free love particularly stressed women s rights since most sexual laws discriminated against women for example marriage laws and anti birth control measures 101 Libertarian socialists have traditionally been skeptical of and opposed to organized religion 102 Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds opinions should be formed on the basis of science logic and reason and should not be influenced by authority tradition or other dogmas 103 104 The cognitive application of freethought is known as freethinking and practitioners of freethought are known as freethinkers 103 In the United States freethought was an anti Christian and anti clerical movement whose purpose was to make the individual politically and spiritually free to decide for himself on religious matters A number of contributors to the anarchist journal Liberty were prominent figures in both anarchism and freethought The individualist anarchist George MacDonald was co editor of both Freethought and The Truth Seeker E C Walker was also co editor of Lucifer the Light Bearer another free love and freethought journal 105 Free Society 1895 1897 as The Firebrand 1897 1904 as Free Society was a major anarchist newspaper in the United States at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries 106 The publication staunchly advocated free love and women s rights and critiqued comstockery censorship of sexual information In 1901 Catalan anarchist and freethinker Francesc Ferrer i Guardia established modern or progressive schools in Barcelona in defiance of an educational system controlled by the Catholic Church 107 The schools stated goal was to educate the working class in a rational secular and non coercive setting Fiercely anti clerical Ferrer believed in freedom in education education free from the authority of church and state 108 Later in the 20th century Austrian Freudo Marxist Wilhelm Reich who coined the phrase sexual revolution in one of his books from the 1940s 109 became a consistent propagandist for sexual freedom going as far as opening free sex counseling clinics in Vienna for working class patients Sex Pol stood for the German Society of Proletarian Sexual Politics According to Elizabeth Danto Reich offered a mixture of psychoanalytic counseling Marxist advice and contraceptives and argued for sexual expressiveness for all including the young and the unmarried with a permissiveness that unsettled both the political left and the psychoanalysts The clinics were immediately overcrowded by people seeking help 110 During the early 1970s the English anarchist and pacifist Alex Comfort achieved international celebrity for writing the sex manuals The Joy of Sex 111 and More Joy of Sex 112 Violent and non violent means Edit Main article Anarchism and violence Some libertarian socialists see violent revolution as necessary in the abolition of capitalist society while others advocate non violent methods Along with many others Errico Malatesta argued that the use of violence was necessary As he put it in Umanita Nova no 125 September 6 1921 It is our aspiration and our aim that everyone should become socially conscious and effective but to achieve this end it is necessary to provide all with the means of life and for development and it is therefore necessary to destroy with violence since one cannot do otherwise the violence that denies these means to the workers 113 Pierre Joseph Proudhon argued in favor of a non violent revolution through a process of dual power in which libertarian socialist institutions would be established and form associations enabling the formation of an expanding network within the existing state capitalist framework with the intention of eventually rendering both the state and the capitalist economy obsolete The progression towards violence in anarchism stemmed in part from the massacres of some of the communes inspired by the ideas of Proudhon and others Many anarcho communists began to see a need for revolutionary violence to counteract the violence inherent in both capitalism and government 114 Anarcho pacifism is a tendency within the anarchist movement which rejects the use of violence in the struggle for social change 115 116 The main early influences were the thought of Henry David Thoreau 116 and Leo Tolstoy 115 116 It developed mostly in Holland sic Britain and the United States before and during the Second World War 117 Opposition to the use of violence has not prohibited anarcho pacifists from accepting the principle of resistance or even revolutionary action provided it does not result in violence it was in fact their approval of such forms of opposition to power that lead many anarcho pacifists to endorse the anarcho syndicalist concept of the general strike as the great revolutionary weapon Anarcho pacifists have also come to endorse the non violent strategy of dual power Other anarchists have believed that violence especially self defense is justified as a way to provoke social upheaval which could lead to a social revolution Environmental issues Edit Green anarchism is a school of thought within anarchism which puts a particular emphasis on environmental issues An important early influence was the thought of the American anarchist Henry David Thoreau and his book Walden 118 as well as Leo Tolstoy 119 and Elisee Reclus 120 121 In the late 19th century there emerged anarcho naturism as the fusion of anarchism and naturist philosophies within individualist anarchist 122 123 124 circles in Cuba 125 France 126 127 Portugal 118 119 and Spain 119 127 128 129 130 Important contemporary currents are anarcho primitivism and social ecology 131 An important meeting place for international libertarian socialism in the early 1990s was the journal Democracy amp Nature in which prominent activists and theorists such as Takis Fotopoulos Noam Chomsky 132 Murray Bookchin and Cornelius Castoriadis wrote 133 Political roots EditWithin early modern socialist thought Edit Peasant revolts in the post Reformation era Edit For Roderick T Long libertarian socialists claim the 17th century English Levellers among their ideological forebears 134 Various libertarian socialist authors have identified the written work of English Protestant social reformer Gerrard Winstanley and the social activism of his group the Diggers as anticipating this line of thought 135 136 For anarchist historian George Woodcock although Pierre Joseph Proudhon was the first writer to call himself an anarchist at least two predecessors outlined systems that contain all the basic elements of anarchism The first was Gerrard Winstanley 1609 c 1660 a linen draper who led the small movement of the Diggers during the Commonwealth Winstanley and his followers protested in the name of a radical Christianity against the economic distress that followed the English Civil War and against the inequality that the grandees of the New Model Army seemed intent on preserving 137 Woodcut from a Leveller document by William Everard In 1649 1650 the Diggers squatted on stretches of common land in southern England and attempted to set up communities based on work on the land and the sharing of goods The communities failed but a series of pamphlets by Winstanley survived of which The New Law of Righteousness 1649 was the most important Advocating a rational Christianity Winstanley equated Christ with the universal liberty and declared the universally corrupting nature of authority He saw an equal privilege to share in the blessing of liberty and detected an intimate link between the institution of property and the lack of freedom 137 Murray Bookchin stated In the modern world anarchism first appeared as a movement of the peasantry and yeomanry against declining feudal institutions In Germany its foremost spokesman during the Peasant Wars was Thomas Muenzer The concepts held by Muenzer and Winstanley were superbly attuned to the needs of their time a historical period when the majority of the population lived in the countryside and when the most militant revolutionary forces came from an agrarian world It would be painfully academic to argue whether Muenzer and Winstanley could have achieved their ideals What is of real importance is that they spoke to their time their anarchist concepts followed naturally from the rural society that furnished the bands of the peasant armies in Germany and the New Model in England 138 Age of Enlightenment Edit William Godwin For Long libertarian socialists also often share a view of ancestry in the 18th century French Encyclopedistes alongside Thomas Jefferson 139 140 141 and Thomas Paine 134 A more often mentioned name is that of English enlightenment thinker William Godwin 142 For Woodcock a more elaborate sketch of anarchism although still without the name was provided by William Godwin in his Enquiry Concerning Political Justice 1793 Godwin was a gradualist anarchist rather than a revolutionary anarchist as he differed from most later anarchists in preferring above revolutionary action the gradual and as it seemed to him more natural process of discussion among men of good will by which he hoped truth would eventually triumph through its own power Godwin who was influenced by the English tradition of Dissent and the French philosophy of the Enlightenment put forward in a developed form the basic anarchist criticisms of the state of accumulated property and of the delegation of authority through democratic procedure 137 Noam Chomsky considers libertarian socialism to be the proper and natural extension of classical liberalism into the era of advanced industrial society 143 Chomsky sees libertarian socialist ideas as the descendants of the classical liberal ideas of the Age of Enlightenment 144 145 arguing that his ideological position revolves around nourishing the libertarian and creative character of the human being 146 Chomsky envisions an anarcho syndicalist future with direct worker control of the means of production and government by workers councils which would select representatives to meet together at general assemblies 147 The point of this self governance is to make each citizen in Jefferson s words a direct participator in the government of affairs 148 Chomsky believes that there will be no need for political parties 149 By controlling their productive life Chomsky believes that individuals can gain job satisfaction and a sense of fulfillment and purpose 150 Chomsky argues that unpleasant and unpopular jobs could be fully automated carried out by workers who are specially remunerated or shared among everyone 151 During the French Revolution Sylvain Marechal demanded the communal enjoyment of the fruits of the earth in his Manifesto of the Equals 1796 and looked forward to the disappearance of the revolting distinction of rich and poor of great and small of masters and valets of governors and governed 48 49 152 The term anarchist first entered the English language in 1642 during the English Civil War as a term of abuse used by Royalists against their Roundhead opponents 153 By the time of the French Revolution some such as the Enrages began to use the term positively 154 in opposition to Jacobin centralisation of power seeing revolutionary government as oxymoronic 153 By the turn of the 19th century the English term anarchism had lost its initial negative connotation 153 Romantic era and utopian socialism Edit Charles Fourier In his preface to Peter Kropotkin s book The Conquest of Bread Kent Bromley considered early French socialist Charles Fourier to be the founder of the libertarian branch of socialist thought as opposed to the authoritarian socialist ideas of Francois Noel Babeuf and Philippe Buonarroti 50 Anarchist Hakim Bey describes Fourier s ideas as follows In Fourier s system of Harmony all creative activity including industry craft agriculture etc will arise from liberated passion this is the famous theory of attractive labor Fourier sexualizes work itself the life of the Phalanstery is a continual orgy of intense feeling intellection amp activity a society of lovers amp wild enthusiasts Fourierism manifested itself in the middle of the 19th century where hundreds of communes phalansteries were founded on Fourierist principles in France North America Mexico South America Algeria and Yugoslavia Pierre Joseph Proudhon Friedrich Engels and Peter Kropotkin all read him with fascination as did Andre Breton and Roland Barthes 155 In his influential work Eros and Civilization Herbert Marcuse praised Fourier by saying that he comes closer than any other utopian socialist to elucidating the dependence of freedom on non repressive sublimation 156 Anarchist Peter Sabatini reports that in the United States of early to mid 19th century there appeared an array of communal and utopian counterculture groups including the so called free love movement William Godwin s anarchism exerted an ideological influence on some of this but more so the socialism of Robert Owen and Charles Fourier After success of his British venture Owen himself established a cooperative community within the United States at New Harmony Indiana during 1825 One member of this commune was Josiah Warren 1798 1874 considered to be the first individualist anarchist 157 Within modern socialist thought Edit Anarchism Edit Main article Anarchism As Albert Meltzer and Stuart Christie stated in their book The Floodgates of Anarchy Anarchism has its particular inheritance part of which it shares with socialism giving it a family resemblance to certain of its enemies Another part of its inheritance it shares with liberalism making it at birth kissing cousins with American type radical individualism a large part of which has married out of the family into the Right Wing and is no longer on speaking terms 158 Pierre Joseph Proudhon who is often considered the father of modern anarchism coined the phrase Property is theft to describe part of his view on the complex nature of ownership in relation to freedom When he said property is theft he was referring to the capitalist who he believed stole profit from laborers For Proudhon the capitalist s employee was subordinated exploited his permanent condition is one of obedience 159 Peter Kropotkin main theorist of anarcho communism Seventeen years 1857 after Proudhon first called himself an anarchist 1840 anarcho communist Joseph Dejacque was the first person to describe himself as a libertarian 160 Outside the United States the term libertarian generally refers to anti authoritarian anti capitalist ideologies 161 Libertarian socialism has its roots in both classical liberalism and socialism though it is often in conflict with liberalism especially neoliberalism and right libertarianism and authoritarian state socialism simultaneously While libertarian socialism has roots in both socialism and liberalism different forms have different levels of influence from the two traditions For instance mutualist anarchism is more influenced by liberalism while communist and syndicalist anarchism are more influenced by socialism However mutualist anarchism has its origins in 18th and 19th century European socialism such as Fourierian socialism 162 163 while communist and syndicalist anarchism has its earliest origins in early 18th century liberalism such as the French Revolution 152 Anarchism posed an early challenge to the vanguardism and statism it detected in important sectors of the socialist movement As such The consequences of the growth of parliamentary action ministerialism and party life charged the anarchists would be de radicalism and embourgeoisiement Further state politics would subvert both true individuality and true community In response many anarchists refused Marxist type organisation seeking to dissolve or undermine power and hierarchy by way of loose political cultural groupings or by championing organisation by a single simultaneously economic and political administrative unit Ruhle syndicalism The power of the intellectual and of science were also rejected by many anarchists In conquering the state in exalting the role of parties they intellectuals reinforce the hierarchical principle embodied in political and administrative institutions Revolutions could only come through force of circumstances and or the inherently rebellious instincts of the masses the instinct for freedom Bakunin Chomsky or in Bakunin s words All that individuals can do is to clarify propagate and work out ideas corresponding to the popular instinct 164 Marxism Edit Main article Libertarian Marxism See also Anarchism and Marxism William Morris early English libertarian Marxist Marxism started to develop a libertarian strand of thought after specific circumstances Chamsy Ojeili said One does find early expressions of such perspectives in William Morris and the Socialist Party of Great Britain the SPGB then again around the events of 1905 with the growing concern at the bureaucratisation and de radicalisation of international socialism 164 Morris established the Socialist League in December 1884 which was encouraged by Friedrich Engels and Eleanor Marx As the leading figure in the organization Morris embarked on a relentless series of speeches and talks on street corners in working men s clubs and lecture theatres across England and Scotland From 1887 anarchists began to outnumber socialists in the Socialist League 165 The 3rd Annual Conference of the League held in London on 29 May 1887 marked the change with a majority of the 24 branch delegates voting in favor of an anarchist sponsored resolution declaring This conference endorses the policy of abstention from parliamentary action hitherto pursued by the League and sees no sufficient reason for altering it 166 Morris played peacemaker but he sided with the anti Parliamentarians who won control of the League which consequently lost the support of Engels and saw the departure of Eleanor Marx and her partner Edward Aveling to form the separate Bloomsbury Socialist Society Clara Zetkin and Rosa Luxemburg However the most important ruptures are to be traced to the insurgency during and after the First World War Disillusioned with the capitulation of the social democrats excited by the emergence of workers councils and slowly distanced from Leninism many communists came to reject the claims of socialist parties and to put their faith instead in the masses For these socialists t he intuition of the masses in action can have more genius in it than the work of the greatest individual genius Rosa Luxemburg s workerism and spontaneism are exemplary of positions later taken up by the far left of the period Antonie Pannekoek Roland Holst and Herman Gorter in the Netherlands Sylvia Pankhurst in Britain Antonio Gramsci in Italy and Gyorgy Lukacs in Hungary In these formulations the dictatorship of the proletariat was to be the dictatorship of a class not of a party or of a clique 164 However within this line of thought t he tension between anti vanguardism and vanguardism has frequently resolved itself in two diametrically opposed ways the first involved a drift towards the party the second saw a move towards the idea of complete proletarian spontaneity The first course is exemplified most clearly in Gramsci and Lukacs The second course is illustrated in the tendency developing from the Dutch and German far lefts which inclined towards the complete eradication of the party form 164 In the emerging Soviet Union there appeared left wing uprisings against the Bolsheviks which were a series of rebellions and uprisings against the Bolsheviks led or supported by left wing groups including Socialist Revolutionaries 167 Left Socialist Revolutionaries Mensheviks and anarchists 168 Some were in support of the White Movement while some tried to be an independent force The uprisings started in 1918 and continued through the Russian Civil War and after until 1922 In response the Bolsheviks increasingly abandoned attempts to get these groups to join the government and suppressed them with force Left Wing Communism An Infantile Disorder is a work by Vladimir Lenin himself attacking assorted critics of the Bolsheviks who claimed positions to their left For many Marxian libertarian socialists the political bankruptcy of socialist orthodoxy necessitated a theoretical break This break took a number of forms The Bordigists and the SPGB championed a super Marxian intransigence in theoretical matters Other socialists made a return behind Marx to the anti positivist programme of German idealism Libertarian socialism has frequently linked its anti authoritarian political aspirations with this theoretical differentiation from orthodoxy Karl Korsch remained a libertarian socialist for a large part of his life and because of the persistent urge towards theoretical openness in his work Korsch rejected the eternal and static and he was obsessed by the essential role of practice in a theory s truth For Korsch no theory could escape history not even Marxism In this vein Korsch even credited the stimulus for Marx s Capital to the movement of the oppressed classes 164 In rejecting both capitalism and the state some libertarian Marxists align themselves with anarchists in opposition to both capitalist representative democracy and to authoritarian forms of Marxism Although anarchists and Marxists share an ultimate goal of a stateless society anarchists criticise most Marxists for advocating a transitional phase under which the state is used to achieve this aim Nonetheless libertarian Marxist tendencies such as autonomist Marxism and council communism have historically been intertwined with the anarchist movement Anarchist movements have come into conflict with both capitalist and Marxist forces sometimes at the same time as in the Spanish Civil War though as in that war Marxists themselves are often divided in support or opposition to anarchism Other political persecutions under bureaucratic parties have resulted in a strong historical antagonism between anarchists and libertarian Marxists on the one hand and Leninist Marxists and their derivatives such as Maoists on the other In recent history libertarian socialists have repeatedly formed temporary alliances with Marxist Leninist groups for the purposes of protest against institutions they both reject Part of this antagonism can be traced to the International Workingmen s Association the First International a congress of radical workers where Mikhail Bakunin who was fairly representative of anarchist views and Karl Marx whom anarchists accused of being an authoritarian came into conflict on various issues Bakunin s viewpoint on the illegitimacy of the state as an institution and the role of electoral politics was starkly counterposed to Marx s views in the First International Marx and Bakunin s disputes eventually led to Marx taking control of the First International and expelling Bakunin and his followers from the organization This was the beginning of a long running feud and schism between libertarian socialists and what they call authoritarian communists or alternatively just authoritarians Some Marxists have formulated views that closely resemble syndicalism and thus express more affinity with anarchist ideas Several libertarian socialists notably Noam Chomsky believe that anarchism shares much in common with certain variants of Marxism such as the council communism of Marxist Anton Pannekoek In his Notes on Anarchism Chomsky suggests the possibility that some form of council communism is the natural form of revolutionary socialism in an industrial society It reflects the belief that democracy is severely limited when the industrial system is controlled by any form of autocratic elite whether of owners managers and technocrats a vanguard party or a State bureaucracy 169 In the mid 20th century some libertarian socialist groups emerged from disagreements with Trotskyism which presented itself as Leninist anti Stalinism As such the French group Socialisme ou Barbarie emerged from the Trotskyist Fourth International where Cornelius Castoriadis and Claude Lefort constituted a Chaulieu Montal tendency in the French Parti Communiste Internationaliste in 1946 In 1948 they experienced their final disenchantment with Trotskyism 170 leading them to break away to form Socialisme ou Barbarie whose journal began appearing in March 1949 Castoriadis later said of this period that the main audience of the group and of the journal was formed by groups of the old radical left Bordigists council communists some anarchists and some offspring of the German left of the 1920s 171 Also in the United Kingdom the group Solidarity was founded in 1960 by a small group of expelled members of the Trotskyist Socialist Labour League Almost from the start it was strongly influenced by the French Socialisme ou Barbarie group in particular by its intellectual leader Cornelius Castoriadis whose essays were among the many pamphlets Solidarity produced The intellectual leader of the group was Chris Pallis who wrote under the name Maurice Brinton 172 In the People s Republic of China PRC since 1967 the terms ultra left and left communist refers to political theory and practice self defined as further left than that of the central Maoist leaders at the height of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution GPCR The terms are also used retroactively to describe some early 20th century Chinese anarchist orientations As a slur the Communist Party of China CPC has used the term ultra left more broadly to denounce any orientation it considers further left than the party line According to the latter usage in 1978 the CPC Central Committee denounced as ultra left the line of Mao Zedong from 1956 until his death in 1976 The term ultra left refers to those GPCR rebel positions that diverged from the central Maoist line by identifying an antagonistic contradiction between the CPC PRC party state itself and the masses of workers and peasants 173 conceived as a single proletarian class divorced from any meaningful control over production or distribution Whereas the central Maoist line maintained that the masses controlled the means of production through the party s mediation the ultra left argued that the objective interests of bureaucrats were structurally determined by the centralist state form in direct opposition to the objective interests of the masses regardless of however socialists a given bureaucrat s thought might be Whereas the central Maoist leaders encouraged the masses to criticize reactionary ideas and habits among the alleged 5 of bad cadres giving them a chance to turn over a new leaf after they had undergone thought reform the ultra left argued that cultural revolution had to give way to political revolution in which one class overthrows another class 174 175 In 1969 French platformist anarcho communist Daniel Guerin published an essay called Libertarian Marxism in which he dealt with the debate between Karl Marx and Mikhail Bakunin at the First International and afterwards he suggested that Libertarian M arxism rejects determinism and fatalism giving the greater place to individual will intuition imagination reflex speeds and to the deep instincts of the masses which are more far seeing in hours of crisis than the reasonings of the elites libertarian M arxism thinks of the effects of surprise provocation and boldness refuses to be cluttered and paralysed by a heavy scientific apparatus doesn t equivocate or bluff and guards itself from adventurism as much as from fear of the unknown 176 In the United States there existed from 1970 to 1981 the publication Root amp Branch 177 which had as a subtitle A Libertarian Marxist Journal 178 In 1974 the journal Libertarian Communism was started in the United Kingdom by a group inside the SPGB 179 Autonomist Marxism neo Marxism and Situationist theory are also regarded as being anti authoritarian variants of Marxism that are firmly within the libertarian socialist tradition As such i n New Zealand no situationist group was formed despite the attempts of Grant McDonagh Instead McDonagh operated as an individual on the periphery of the anarchist milieu co operating with anarchists to publish several magazines such as Anarchy and KAT The latter called itself an anti authoritarian spasmodical of the libertarian ultra left situationists anarchists and libertarian socialists 180 For libcom org In the 1980s and 90s a series of other groups developed influenced also by much of the above work The most notable are Kolinko Kurasje and Wildcat in Germany Aufheben in England Theorie Communiste in France TPTG in Greece and Kamunist Kranti in India They are also connected to other groups in other countries merging autonomia operaismo Hegelian Marxism the work of the JFT Open Marxism the ICO the Situationist International anarchism and post 68 German Marxism 181 Related to this were intellectuals who were influenced by Italian left communist Amadeo Bordiga but who disagreed with his Leninist positions and so these included the French publication Invariance edited by Jacques Camatte published since 1968 and Gilles Dauve who published Troploin with Karl Nesic Notable tendencies EditAnarchist Edit Main article Anarchism Historically anarchism and libertarian socialism have been largely synonymous 182 Principally this regards the currents of classical anarchism developed in the 19th century in their commitments to autonomy and freedom decentralization opposing hierarchy and opposing the vanguardism of authoritarian socialism Anarcho syndicalist Gaston Leval explained We therefore foresee a Society in which all activities will be coordinated a structure that has at the same time sufficient flexibility to permit the greatest possible autonomy for social life or for the life of each enterprise and enough cohesiveness to prevent all disorder In a well organised society all of these things must be systematically accomplished by means of parallel federations vertically united at the highest levels constituting one vast organism in which all economic functions will be performed in solidarity with all others and that will permanently preserve the necessary cohesion 183 Mutualism Edit Main article Mutualism economic theory Pierre Joseph Proudhon Mutualism began as a 19th century socialist movement adopted and developed by Pierre Joseph Proudhon into the first anarchist economic theory Mutualism is based on a version of the labor theory of value holding that when labor or its product is sold it ought to receive in exchange goods or services embodying the amount of labor necessary to produce an article of exactly similar and equal utility 184 and considers anything less to be exploitation theft of labor or usury Mutualists advocate social ownership and believe that a free labor market would allow for conditions of equal income in proportion to exerted labor 185 186 As Jonathan Beecher puts it the mutualist aim was to emancipate labor from the constraints imposed by capital 187 Proudhon believed that an individual only had a right to land while he was using or occupying it If the individual ceases doing so it reverts to unowned land 188 Some individualist anarchists such as Benjamin Tucker were influenced by Proudhon s mutualism but they did not call for association in large enterprises like him 189 Mutualist ideas found a fertile ground in the 19th century in Spain In Spain Ramon de la Sagra established anarchist journal El Porvenir in La Coruna in 1845 which was inspired by Proudhon s ideas 190 The Catalan politician Francesc Pi i Margall became the principal translator of Proudhon s works into Spanish 191 and later briefly became president of Spain in 1873 while being the leader of the Democratic Republican Federal Party According to George Woodcock t hese translations were to have a profound and lasting effect on the development of Spanish anarchism after 1870 but before that time Proudhonian ideas as interpreted by Pi already provided much of the inspiration for the federalist movement which sprang up in the early 1860 s 191 According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica d uring the Spanish revolution of 1873 Pi y Margall attempted to establish a decentralized or cantonalist political system on Proudhonian lines 190 Kevin Carson is a contemporary mutualist theorist who is the author of Studies in Mutualist Political Economy 192 Social anarchism Edit Main article Social anarchism Errico Malatesta influential Italian activist and theorist of anarcho communism Social anarchism is a branch of anarchism emphasizing social ownership mutual aid and workers self management Social anarchism has been the dominant form of classical anarchism and includes the major collectivist communist and syndicalist schools of anarchist thought As a term social anarchism is used in contrast to individualist anarchism to describe the theory that places an emphasis on the communitarian and cooperative aspects in anarchist theory while also opposing authoritarian forms of communitarianism associated with groupthink and collective conformity favoring a reconciliation between individuality and sociality Mikhail Bakunin Russian revolutionary socialist and collectivist anarchist Social anarchists oppose private ownership of the means of production seeing it as a source of inequality and instead advocate social ownership be it through collective ownership as with Bakuninists and collectivist anarchists common ownership as with communist anarchists and cooperative ownership as with syndicalist anarchists or other forms Social anarchism comes in both peaceful and insurrectionary tendencies as well as both platformist and anti organizationalist tendencies It has operated heavily within workers movements trade unions and labour syndicates emphasizing the liberation of workers through class struggle To date the best known examples of social anarchist societies are the Free Territory after the Russian Revolution the Korean People s Association in Manchuria and the anarchist territories of the Spanish Revolution 193 Individualist anarchism Edit Main article Individualist anarchism Individualist anarchism is a set of several traditions of thought within the anarchist movement that emphasize the individual and their will over external determinants such as groups society traditions and ideological systems 194 195 Anarchists such as Luigi Galleani and Errico Malatesta have seen no contradiction between individualist anarchism and social anarchism 196 with the latter especially seeing issues not between the two forms of anarchism but between anarchists and non anarchists 197 Anarchists such as Benjamin Tucker argued that it was not Socialist Anarchism against Individualist Anarchism but of Communist Socialism against Individualist Socialism 198 Tucker further noted that the fact that State Socialism has overshadowed other forms of Socialism gives it no right to a monopoly of the Socialistic idea 199 Josiah Warren is widely regarded as the first American anarchist 200 and the four page weekly paper he edited during 1833 The Peaceful Revolutionist was the first anarchist periodical published 201 For American anarchist historian Eunice Minette Schuster i t is apparent that Proudhonian Anarchism was to be found in the United States at least as early as 1848 and that it was not conscious of its affinity to the Individualist Anarchism of Josiah Warren and Stephen Pearl Andrews William B Greene presented this Proudhonian Mutualism in its purest and most systematic form 202 Later the American individualist anarchist Benjamin Tucker was against both the state and capitalism against both oppression and exploitation While not against the market and property he was firmly against capitalism as it was in his eyes a state supported monopoly of social capital tools machinery etc which allows owners to exploit their employees i e to avoid paying workers the full value of their labour He thought that the labouring classes are deprived of their earnings by usury in its three forms interest rent and profit therefore Liberty will abolish interest it will abolish profit it will abolish monopolistic rent it will abolish taxation it will abolish the exploitation of labour it will abolish all means whereby any labourer can be deprived of any of his product This stance puts him squarely in the libertarian socialist tradition and Tucker referred to himself many times as a socialist and considered his philosophy to be anarchistic socialism 203 204 Oscar Wilde famous anarchist Irish writer who published the libertarian socialist work titled The Soul of Man Under Socialism French individualist anarchist Emile Armand shows clearly opposition to capitalism and centralized economies when he said that the individualist anarchist inwardly he remains refractory fatally refractory morally intellectually economically The capitalist economy and the directed economy the speculators and the fabricators of single are equally repugnant to him 205 The Spanish individualist anarchist Miguel Gimenez Igualada thought that capitalism is an effect of government the disappearance of government means capitalism falls from its pedestal vertiginously That which we call capitalism is not something else but a product of the State within which the only thing that is being pushed forward is profit good or badly acquired And so to fight against capitalism is a pointless task since be it State capitalism or Enterprise capitalism as long as Government exists exploiting capital will exist The fight but of consciousness is against the State 206 His view on class division and technocracy are as follows Since when no one works for another the profiteer from wealth disappears just as government will disappear when no one pays attention to those who learned four things at universities and from that fact they pretend to govern men Big industrial enterprises will be transformed by men in big associations in which everyone will work and enjoy the product of their work And from those easy as well as beautiful problems anarchism deals with and he who puts them in practice and lives them are anarchists The priority which without rest an anarchist must make is that in which no one has to exploit anyone no man to no man since that non exploitation will lead to the limitation of property to individual needs 207 The anarchist 208 writer and Bohemian Oscar Wilde wrote in his famous essay The Soul of Man Under Socialism that a rt is individualism and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force There lies its immense value For what it seeks is to disturb monotony of type slavery of custom tyranny of habit and the reduction of man to the level of a machine 209 For anarchist historian George Woodcock Wilde s aim in The Soul of Man Under Socialism is to seek the society most favorable to the artist for Wilde art is the supreme end containing within itself enlightenment and regeneration to which all else in society must be subordinated Wilde represents the anarchist as aesthete 210 In a socialist society people will have the possibility to realise their talents as each member of the society will share in the general prosperity and happiness of the society Wilde added that upon the other hand Socialism itself will be of value simply because it will lead to individualism since individuals will no longer need to fear poverty or starvation This individualism would in turn protect against governments armed with economic power as they are now with political power over their citizens However Wilde advocated non capitalist individualism saying that of course it might be said that the Individualism generated under conditions of private property is not always or even as a rule of a fine or wonderful type a critique which is quite true 211 In Wilde s imagination in this way socialism would free men from manual labour and allow them to devote their time to creative pursuits thus developing their soul He ended by declaring The new individualism is the new hellenism 211 Marxist Edit Main article Libertarian Marxism Libertarian Marxism is a broad scope of economic and political philosophies that emphasize the anti authoritarian aspects of Marxism 212 Early currents of libertarian Marxism known as left communism 213 emerged in opposition to Marxism Leninism 214 and its derivatives such as Stalinism Maoism and Trotskyism 215 Libertarian Marxism is also critical of reformist positions such as those held by social democrats 216 Libertarian Marxist currents often draw from Marx and Engels later works specifically the Grundrisse and The Civil War in France 217 emphasizing the Marxist belief in the ability of the working class to forge its own destiny without the need for a revolutionary party or state to mediate or aid its liberation 218 Along with anarchism libertarian Marxism is one of the main currents of libertarian socialism 219 Libertarian Marxism includes such currents as Luxemburgism council communism left communism Socialisme ou Barbarie the Johnson Forest tendency world socialism Lettrism Situationism and autonomism workerism and New Left 220 Libertarian Marxism has often had a strong influence on both post left and social anarchists Notable theorists of libertarian Marxism have included Anton Pannekoek Raya Dunayevskaya C L R James Antonio Negri Cornelius Castoriadis Maurice Brinton Guy Debord Daniel Guerin Ernesto Screpanti and Raoul Vaneigem De Leonism Edit Main article De Leonism De Leonism is a form of syndicalist Marxism developed by Daniel De Leon De Leon was an early leader of the first United States socialist political party the Socialist Labor Party of America De Leon combined the rising theories of syndicalism in his time with orthodox Marxism According to De Leonist theory militant industrial unions specialized trade unions and a party promoting industrial unionist ideas are the vehicles of class struggle Industrial unions serving the interests of the proletariat will bring about the change needed to establish a socialist system The only way this differs from some currents in anarcho syndicalism is that according to De Leonist thinking a revolutionary political party is also necessary to fight for the proletariat on the political field De Leonism also lies outside the Leninist tradition of communism It predates Leninism as De Leonism s principles developed in the early 1890s with De Leon s assuming leadership of the SLP whereas Leninism and its vanguard party idea took shape after the 1902 publication of Lenin s What Is To Be Done The highly decentralized and democratic nature of the proposed De Leonist government is in contrast to the democratic centralism of Marxism Leninism and what they see as the dictatorial nature of the Soviet Union and the People s Republic of China and other communist states The success of the De Leonist plan depends on achieving majority support among the people both in the workplaces and at the polls in contrast to the Leninist notion that a small vanguard party should lead the working class to carry out the revolution Council communism Edit Main article Council communism Council communism is a radical left wing movement originating in Germany and the Netherlands in the 1920s Its primary organization was the Communist Workers Party of Germany KAPD Council communism continues today as a theoretical and activist position within Marxism and also within libertarian socialism In contrast to those of social democracy and Leninist communism the central argument of council communism is that workers councils arising in the factories and municipalities are the natural and legitimate form of working class organisation and government power This view is opposed to the reformist and Bolshevik stress on vanguard parties parliaments or the state The core principle of council communism is that the state and the economy should be managed by workers councils composed of delegates elected at workplaces and recallable at any moment As such council communists oppose state run bureaucratic socialism They also oppose the idea of a revolutionary party since council communists believe that a revolution led by a party will necessarily produce a party dictatorship Council communists support a workers democracy which they want to produce through a federation of workers councils The Russian term for council is soviet and during the early years of the revolution worker s councils were politically significant in Russia It was to take advantage of the aura of workplace power that the word became used by Vladimir Lenin for various political organs The name Supreme Soviet by which the parliament was called and that of the Soviet Union itself make use of this terminology but they do not imply any decentralization Furthermore council communists held a critique of the Soviet Union as a capitalist state believing that the Bolshevik revolution in Russia became a bourgeois revolution when a party bureaucracy replaced the old feudal aristocracy Although most felt the Russian Revolution was working class in character they believed that since capitalist relations still existed because the workers had no say in running the economy the Soviet Union ended up as a state capitalist country with the state replacing the individual capitalist Council communists support workers revolutions but they oppose one party dictatorships Council communists also believed in diminishing the role of the party to one of agitation and propaganda rejected all participation in elections or parliament and argued that workers should leave the reactionary trade unions and form one big revolutionary union Left communism Edit Main article Left communism Left communism is the range of communist viewpoints held by the communist left which criticizes the political ideas of the Bolsheviks at certain periods from a position that is asserted to be more authentically Marxist and proletarian than the views of Leninism held by the Communist International after its first and during its second congress Left communists see themselves to the left of Leninists whom they tend to see as the left of capital not socialists anarchists some of whom they consider internationalist socialists as well as some other revolutionary socialist tendencies for example De Leonists who they tend to see as being internationalist socialists only in limited instances Although she lived before left communism became a distinct tendency Rosa Luxemburg has heavily influenced most left communists both politically and theoretically Proponents of left communism have included Amadeo Bordiga Herman Gorter Anton Pannekoek Otto Ruhle Karl Korsch Sylvia Pankhurst and Paul Mattick Prominent left communist groups existing today include the International Communist Current and the Internationalist Communist Tendency Different factions from the old Bordigist International Communist Party are also considered left communist organizations Johnson Forest tendency Edit Main article Johnson Forest tendency The Johnson Forest tendency is a radical left tendency in the United States associated with Marxist humanist theorists C L R James and Raya Dunayevskaya who used the pseudonyms J R Johnson and Freddie Forest respectively They were joined by Grace Lee Boggs a Chinese American woman who was considered the third founder After leaving the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party Johnson Forest founded their own organization for the first time called Correspondence This group changed its name to the Correspondence Publishing Committee the next year However tensions that had surfaced earlier presaged a split which took place in 1955 Through his theoretical and political work of the late 1940s James had concluded that a vanguard party was no longer necessary because its teachings had been absorbed in the masses In 1956 James would see the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 as confirmation of this Those who endorsed the politics of James took the name Facing Reality after the 1958 book by James co written with Grace Lee Boggs and Pierre Chaulieu a pseudonym for Cornelius Castoriadis on the Hungarian working class revolt of 1956 Socialisme ou Barbarie Edit Main article Socialisme ou Barbarie Cornelius Castoriadis libertarian socialist theorist Socialisme ou Barbarie Socialism or Barbarism was a French based radical libertarian socialist group of the post World War II period the name comes from a phrase Friedrich Engels used and was cited by Rosa Luxemburg in the 1916 essay The Junius Pamphlet 221 It existed from 1948 until 1965 The animating personality was Cornelius Castoriadis also known as Pierre Chaulieu or Paul Cardan 222 Because he explicitly both rejected Leninist vanguardism and criticised spontaneism for Castoriadis the emancipation of the mass of people was the task of those people however the socialist thinker could not simply fold his or her arms Castoriadis argued that the special place accorded to the intellectual should belong to each autonomous citizen However he rejected attentisme maintaining that in the struggle for a new society intellectuals needed to place themselves at a distance from the everyday and from the real 164 Political philosopher Claude Lefort was impressed by Cornelius Castoriadis when he first met him They published On the Regime and Against the Defence of the USSR a critique of both the Soviet Union and its Trotskyist supporters They suggested that the Soviet Union was dominated by a social layer of bureaucrats and that it consisted of a new kind of society as aggressive as Western European societies Later he also published in Socialisme ou Barbarie Situationist International Edit Main article Situationist International The Situationist International was a restricted group of international revolutionaries founded in 1957 and which had its peak in its influence on the unprecedented general wildcat strikes of May 1968 in France With their ideas rooted in Marxism and the 20th century European artistic avant gardes they advocated experiences of life being alternative to those admitted by the capitalist order for the fulfillment of human primitive desires and the pursuing of a superior passional quality For this purpose they suggested and experimented with the construction of situations namely the setting up of environments favorable for the fulfillment of such desires Using methods drawn from the arts they developed a series of experimental fields of study for the construction of such situations like unitary urbanism and psychogeography In this vein a major theorectical work which emerged from this group was Raoul Vaneigem s The Revolution of Everyday Life 223 They fought against the main obstacle on the fulfillment of such superior passional living identified by them in advanced capitalism Their critical theoretical work peaked on the highly influential book The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord Debord argued in 1967 that spectacular features like mass media and advertising have a central role in an advanced capitalist society which is to show a fake reality in order to mask the real capitalist degradation of human life To overthrow such a system the Situationist International supported the May 1968 revolts and asked the workers to occupy the factories and to run them with direct democracy through workers councils composed by instantly revocable delegates After publishing in the last issue of the magazine an analysis of the May 1968 revolts and the strategies that will need to be adopted in future revolutions 224 the Situationist International was dissolved in 1972 225 Autonomism Edit Main article Autonomism Antonio Negri main theorist of Italian autonomism Autonomism is a set of left wing political and social movements and theories close to the socialist movement As an identifiable theoretical system it first emerged in Italy in the 1960s from workerist operaismo communism Through translations made available by Danilo Montaldi and others the Italian autonomists drew upon previous activist research in the United States by the Johnson Forest tendency and in France by the group Socialisme ou Barbarie Later post Marxist and anarchist tendencies became significant after influence from the Situationists the failure of Italian far left movements in the 1970s and the emergence of a number of important theorists including Antonio Negri who had contributed to the 1969 founding of Potere Operaio as well as Mario Tronti Paolo Virno and Franco Bifo Berardi Unlike other forms of Marxism autonomist Marxism emphasises the ability of the working class to force changes to the organization of the capitalist system independent of the state trade unions or political parties Autonomists are less concerned with party political organization than other Marxists focusing instead on self organized action outside of traditional organizational structures Autonomist Marxism is thus a bottom up theory which draws attention to activities that autonomists see as everyday working class resistance to capitalism for example absenteeism slow working and socialization in the workplace All this influenced the German and Dutch autonomen the worldwide Social Centre movement and today is influential in Italy France and to a lesser extent the English speaking countries Those who describe themselves as autonomists now vary from Marxists to post structuralists and anarchists The autonomist Marxist and autonomen movements provided inspiration to some on the revolutionary left in English speaking countries particularly among anarchists many of whom have adopted autonomist tactics Some English speaking anarchists even describe themselves as autonomists The Italian operaismo movement also influenced Marxist academics such as Harry Cleaver John Holloway Steve Wright and Nick Dyer Witheford Today it is associated also with the publication Multitudes 226 Other Edit Other libertarian socialist currents include post classical anarchist tendencies as well as tendencies which cannot be easily classified within the anarchist Marxist division Within the labour movement and parliamentary politics Edit Democratic socialism Edit Main article Democratic socialism Francesc Pi i Margall Catalan follower and translator of Proudhon and libertarian socialist theorist who briefly became president of Spain Pierre Joseph Proudhon ran for the French constituent assembly in April 1848 but he was not elected although his name appeared on the ballots in Paris Lyon Besancon and Lille He was successful in the complementary elections of June 4 The Catalan politician Francesc Pi i Margall became the principal translator of Proudhon s works into Spanish and later briefly became president of Spain in 1873 while being the leader of the Federal Democratic Republican Party 191 Salvador Segui Catalan libertarian socialist within the anarcho syndicalist Confederacion Nacional del Trabajo For prominent anarcho syndicalist Rudolf Rocker The first movement of the Spanish workers was strongly influenced by the ideas of Pi y Margall leader of the Spanish Federalists and disciple of Proudhon Pi y Margall was one of the outstanding theorists of his time and had a powerful influence on the development of libertarian ideas in Spain His political ideas had much in common with those of Richard Price Joseph Priestly sic Thomas Paine Jefferson and other representatives of the Anglo American liberalism of the first period He wanted to limit the power of the state to a minimum and gradually replace it by a Socialist economic order 227 Pi i Margall was a dedicated theorist in his own right especially through book length works such as La reaccion y la revolucion Reaction and revolution from 1855 Las nacionalidades Nationalities 1877 and La Federacion Federation from 1880 On the other hand Fermin Salvochea was a mayor of the city of Cadiz and a president of the province of Cadiz He was one of the main propagators of anarchist thought in that area in the late 19th century and is considered to be perhaps the most beloved figure in the Spanish anarchist movement of the 19th century 228 229 Ideologically he was influenced by Charles Bradlaugh Robert Owen and Thomas Paine whose works he had studied during his stay in England as well as by Peter Kropotkin whom he read later In Spain he had contact with the anarchist thinkers and members of the Bakuninist Alliance including Anselmo Lorenzo and Francisco Mora 228 In 1950 a clandestine group formed within the Francophone Anarchist Federation FA called Organisation Pensee Bataille OPB led by the platformist George Fontenis 230 The OPB pushed for a move which saw the FA change its name into the Federation Communiste Libertaire FCL after the 1953 Congress in Paris while an article in Le Libertaire indicated the end of the cooperation with the French Surrealist Group led by Andre Breton The new decision making process was founded on unanimity as each person had a right of veto on the orientations of the federation The FCL published the same year the Manifeste du communisme libertaire Several groups quit the FCL in December 1955 disagreeing with the decision to present revolutionary candidates at the legislative elections On 15 20 August 1954 the 5th intercontinental plenum of the CNT took place A group called Entente anarchiste Anarchist Agreement appeared which was formed of militants who did not like the new ideological orientation that the OPB was giving the FCL considering it authoritarian and almost Marxist 231 The FCL lasted until 1956 just after it participated in state legislative elections with ten candidates This move alienated some members of the FCL and thus led to the end of the organization 230 There was a strong left libertarian current in the British labour movement and the term libertarian socialist has been applied to a number of democratic socialists including some prominent members of the British Labour Party The Socialist League was formed in 1885 by William Morris and others critical of the authoritarian socialism of the Social Democratic Federation It was involved in the new unionism the rank and file union militancy of the 1880s 1890s which anticipated syndicalism in some key ways Tom Mann a New Unionist leader was one of the first British syndicalists The Socialist League was dominated by anarchists by the 1890s 232 The Independent Labour Party ILP formed at that time drew more on the nonconformist religious traditions in the British working class than on Marxist theory and had a libertarian socialist strain Others in the tradition of the ILP and described as libertarian socialists included Michael Foot and most importantly G D H Cole Labour Party minister Peter Hain 233 has written in support of libertarian socialism identifying an axis involving a bottom up vision of socialism with anarchists at the revolutionary end and democratic socialists such as himself at its reformist end as opposed to the axis of state socialism with Marxist Leninists at the revolutionary end and social democrats at the reformist end 234 Another recent mainstream Labour politician who has been described as a libertarian socialist is Robin Cook 235 Defined in this way libertarian socialism in the contemporary political mainstream is distinguished from modern social democracy and democratic socialism principally by its political decentralism rather than by its economics The multi tendency Socialist Party USA also has a strong libertarian socialist current Katja Kipping and Julia Bonk in Germany Femke Halsema 236 in the Netherlands and Ufuk Uras and the Freedom and Solidarity Party in Turkey are examples of a contemporary libertarian socialist politicians and parties operating within mainstream parliamentary democracies In Chile the autonomist organization Izquierda Autonoma Autonomous Left in the 2013 Chilean general election gained a seat in the Chilean Parliament through Gabriel Boric ex leader of the 2011 2013 Chilean student protests 237 In 2016 Boric alongside other persons such as Jorge Sharp left the party in order to establish the Movimiento Autonomista 238 In the Chilean municipal elections of October 2016 Sharp was elected Mayor of Valparaiso with a vote of 53 238 239 Currently in the United States there is a caucus within the larger Democratic Socialists of America called the Libertarian Socialist Caucus The LSC promotes a vision of libertarian socialism a traditional name for anarchism that goes beyond the confines of traditional social democratic politics 240 In the Spanish autonomous community of Catalonia Jacobin reports about the contemporary political party Candidatura d Unitat Popular CUP as follows A libertarian socialist and even anarcho syndicalist character permeates CUP in the anti authoritarian tradition of the Catalan left embodied by Civil War era organizations like the Confederacion Nacional del Trabajo CNT which was anarcho syndicalist or Trotskyists like Partido Obrero de Unificacion Marxista POUM cooperatives and popular cultural centers casals and ateneus populars flourished in the late 1990s and 2000s as safe havens for radical socialist communities economic alternatives and ideological formations Many revolutionary youth organizations were born in these cultural centers In addition to the network of popular cultural centers the emergence of squatted houses also known as self managed social centers further extended this radical sensibility in Catalonia While not all squatted houses are aligned with separatist socialism some of the most emblematic houses are more identified with the separatist movement like the squatted house of Can Vies in Barcelona Every local assembly represents the essential unit of this popular unity It represents the neighborhood the village the town Assemblies are sovereign and potentially powerful They are the cradle of participatory democracy In some of the towns where CUP holds the power these open assemblies have received extra responsibilities and devolved powers 241 Libertarian possibilism Edit Main article Libertarian possibilism Anarcha feminist militia of Mujeres Libres during the libertarian socialist Spanish Revolution of 1936 Libertarian possibilism was a political current within the early 20th century Spanish anarchist movement which advocated achieving the anarchist ends of ending the state and capitalism with participation inside structures of contemporary parliamentary democracy 242 The name of this political position appeared for the first time between 1922 1923 within the discourse of catalan anarcho syndicalist Salvador Segui when he said We have to intervene in politics in order to take over the positions of the bourgoise 243 Federica Montseny here in Barcelona 1977 was minister of health during the Spanish Second Republic During the autumn of 1931 the Manifesto of the 30 was published by militants of the anarchist trade union Confederacion Nacional del Trabajo CNT Among those who signed it there was the CNT general secretary 1922 1923 Joan Peiro Angel Pestana general secretary in 1929 and Juan Lopez Sanchez Their current was called treintismo and they called for a more moderate political line within the Spanish anarchist movement In 1932 they established the Syndicalist Party which participated in the 1936 Spanish general election and proceeded to be a part of the leftist coalition of parties known as the Popular Front obtaining two congressmen Pestana and Benito Pabon In 1938 Horacio Prieto general secretary of the CNT proposed that the Iberian Anarchist Federation transform itself into a libertarian socialist party and that it participate in national elections 244 In November 1936 the Popular Front appointed the prominent anarcha feminist Federica Montseny as minister of health becoming the first woman in Spanish history to be a cabinet minister 245 When the Republican forces lost the Spanish Civil War the city of Madrid was turned over to the Francoist forces in 1939 by the last non Francoist mayor of the city the anarchist Melchor Rodriguez Garcia 246 Eco socialism Edit Main articles Eco socialism Green anarchism and Green politics Merging aspects of anarchism ecology environmentalism green politics Marxism and socialism eco socialists generally believe that the capitalist system is the cause of social exclusion inequality and environmental degradation Eco socialists criticise many within the Green movement for not going far enough in their critique of the current world system and for not being overtly anti capitalist At the same time eco socialists would blame the traditional left for overlooking or not properly addressing ecological problems 247 Eco socialists are anti globalisation Joel Kovel sees globalisation as a force driven by capitalism In turn the rapid economic growth encouraged by globalisation causes acute ecological crises 248 Agrarian socialism is another variant of eco socialism A 17th century movement called the Diggers based their ideas on agrarian socialism 249 Eco socialism goes beyond a criticism of the actions of large corporations and targets the inherent properties of capitalism Such an analysis follows Marx s theories about the contradiction between use values and exchange values Within a market economy goods are not produced to meet needs but are produced to be exchanged for money that we then use to acquire other goods As we have to keep selling to keep buying we must persuade others to buy our goods just to ensure our survival which leads to the production of goods with no previous use that can be sold to sustain our ability to buy other goods Eco socialists like Kovel stress that this contradiction has reached a destructive extent where certain essential activities such as caring for relatives full time and basic subsistence are unrewarded while unnecessary economic activities earn certain individuals huge fortunes 248 Green anarchism is a school of thought within anarchism which puts a particular emphasis on environmental issues 250 251 An important early influence was the thought of the American individualist anarchist Henry David Thoreau and his book Walden 118 as well as Leo Tolstoy 119 and Elisee Reclus 120 In the late 19th century there emerged a naturist current within individualist anarchist 122 123 124 circles in Cuba 125 France 126 127 Portugal 118 119 and Spain 119 127 128 130 Some contemporary green anarchists can be described as anarcho primitivists or anti civilization anarchists although not all green anarchists are primitivists Likewise there is a strong critique of modern technology among green anarchists although not all reject it entirely Important contemporary currents are anarcho primitivism and social ecology Notable contemporary writers espousing green anarchism include Murray Bookchin Daniel Chodorkoff anthropologist Brian Morris and people around the Institute for Social Ecology and those critical of technology such as Layla AbdelRahim Derrick Jensen George Draffan and John Zerzan and others such as Alan Carter 252 Social ecologists often criticize the main currents of socialism for their focus and debates about politics and economics instead of a focus on eco system human and environmental This theory promotes libertarian municipalism and green technology Anarcho primitivists often criticize mainstream socialism for supporting civilization and modern technology which they believe are inherently based on domination and exploitation They instead advocate the process of rewilding or reconnecting with the natural environment Veganarchism is the political philosophy of veganism more specifically animal liberation and green anarchism 253 This encompasses viewing the state as unnecessary and harmful to both human and animals whilst practising a vegan lifestyle 253 Georgism Edit Main articles Georgism Geolibertarianism and Henry George Georgism is an economic philosophy and ideology which holds that people own what they create but that things found in nature most importantly land belong equally to all 254 The Georgist philosophy is based on the writings of the economist Henry George 1839 1897 and is usually associated with the idea of a single tax on the value of land His most famous work is Progress and Poverty 1879 a treatise on inequality the cyclic nature of industrialized economies and the use of the land value tax as a remedy Georgists argue that a tax on land value is economically efficient fair and equitable and that it can generate sufficient revenue so that other taxes e g taxes on profits sales or income which are less fair and efficient can be reduced or eliminated A tax on land value has been described by many as a progressive tax since it would be paid primarily by the wealthy and would reduce economic inequality 255 Georgist ideas heavily influenced the politics of the early 20th century Political parties that were formed based on Georgist ideas include the Commonwealth Land Party the Justice Party of Denmark the Henry George Justice Party and the Single Tax League Several communities were also initiated with Georgist principles during the height of the philosophy s popularity Two such communities that still exist are Arden Delaware which was founded in 1900 by Frank Stephens and Will Price and Fairhope Alabama which was founded in 1894 by the auspices of the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation 256 Christian anarchist Leo Tolstoy was enthused by the economic thinking of Henry George incorporating it approvingly into later works such as Resurrection the book that played a major factor in his excommunication 257 Guild socialism Edit Main article Guild socialism Guild socialism is a political movement advocating workers control of industry through the medium of trade related guilds in an implied contractual relationship with the public 258 It originated in the United Kingdom and was at its most influential in the first quarter of the 20th century 258 It was strongly associated with G D H Cole and influenced by the ideas of William Morris Guild socialism was partly inspired by the guilds of craftsmen and other skilled workers which had existed in England during the Middle Ages In 1906 Arthur Penty published Restoration of the Gild System in which he opposed factory production and advocated a return to an earlier period of artisanal production organised through guilds The following year the journal The New Age became an advocate of guild socialism although in the context of modern industry rather than the medieval setting favoured by Penty The guild socialists stood for state ownership of industry combined with workers control through delegation of authority to national guilds organized internally on democratic lines About the state itself they differed some believing it would remain more or less in its existing form and others that it would be transformed into a federal body representing the workers guilds consumers organizations local government bodies and other social structures 258 In 1914 Samuel George Hobson a leading contributor to The New Age published National Guilds An Inquiry into the Wage System and the Way Out In this work guilds were presented as an alternative to state control of industry or conventional trade union activity Unlike the existing trade unions guilds would not confine their demands to matters of wages and conditions but would seek to obtain control of industry for the workers whom they represented Ultimately industrial guilds would serve as the organs through which industry would be organised in a future socialist society The theory of guild socialism was developed and popularised by G D H Cole who formed the National Guilds League in 1915 and published several books on guild socialism including Self Government in Industry 1917 and Guild Socialism Restated 1920 For scholar Charles Masquerade i t is by meeting such a twofold requirement that the libertarian socialism of G D H Cole could be said to offer timely and sustainable avenues for the institutionalization of the liberal value of autonomy By setting out to destroy this predominance of economic factors Cole 1980 180 through the re organization of key spheres of life into forms of associative action and coordination capable of giving the fullest development of functional organisation Cole effectively sought to turn political representation into a system actually capable of giving direct recognition to the multiplicity of interests making up highly complex and differentiated societies 259 Revolutionary syndicalism Edit Main article Revolutionary syndicalism Revolutionary syndicalism is a type of economic system proposed as a replacement for capitalism and an alternative to state socialism which uses federations of collectivised trade unions or industrial unions It is a form of socialist economic corporatism that advocates interest aggregation of multiple non competitive categorised units to negotiate and manage an economy 260 For adherents labour unions are the potential means of both overcoming economic aristocracy and running society fairly in the interest of the majority through union democracy Industry in a syndicalist system would be run through co operative confederations and mutual aid Local syndicates would communicate with other syndicates through the Bourse du Travail labor exchange which would manage and transfer commodities Syndicalism is also used to refer to the tactic of bringing about this social arrangement typically expounded by anarcho syndicalism and De Leonism in which a general strike begins and workers seize their means of production and organise in a federation of trade unionism such as the Confederacion Nacional del Trabajo CNT 261 Throughout its history the reformist section of syndicalism has been overshadowed by its revolutionary section typified by the Confederation Generale du Travail in France the Industrial Workers of the World the Federacion Anarquista Iberica section of the CNT 262 the Unione Sindacale Italiana and the Central Organisation of the Workers of Sweden Christian anarchism Edit Main article Christian anarchism Leo Tolstoy important theorist of Christian anarchism and anarcho pacifism Christian anarchism is a movement in political theology that combines anarchism and Christianity 263 It is the belief that there is only one source of authority to which Christians are ultimately answerable the authority of God as embodied in the teachings of Jesus More than any other Bible source the Sermon on the Mount and Jesus call to not resist evil but turn the other cheek are used as the basis for Christian anarchism 264 Christian anarchists are pacifists and oppose the use of violence such as war 265 The foundation of Christian anarchism is a rejection of violence with Leo Tolstoy s The Kingdom of God Is Within You regarded as a key text 265 266 Christian anarchists denounce the state as they claim it is violent deceitful and when glorified a form of idolatry 265 267 The Tolstoyans were a small Christian anarchist group formed by Tolstoy s companion Vladimir Chertkov 1854 1936 to spread Tolstoy s religious teachings Prince Peter Kropotkin wrote of Tolstoy in the article on anarchism in the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica while in hundreds of essays over the last twenty years of his life Tolstoy reiterated the anarchist critique of the state and recommended books by Kropotkin and Pierre Joseph Proudhon to his readers whilst rejecting anarchism s espousal of violent revolutionary means 268 Dorothy Day was an American journalist social activist and devout Catholic convert who advocated the Catholic economic theory of distributism Day believed all states were inherently totalitarian 269 and was a self labeled anarchist 270 271 272 In the 1930s Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker Movement a nonviolent pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf The importance of Day within Catholicism goes to the extent that the cause for Day s canonization is open in the Catholic Church and she is thus formally referred to as a Servant of God 273 Ammon Hennacy was an Irish American pacifist Christian anarchist and social activist member of the Catholic Worker Movement and a Wobbly He established the Joe Hill House of Hospitality in Salt Lake City Utah 274 Gandhism Edit Main article Gandhism See also Gandhian economics and Gandhian socialism Gandhism is the collection of inspirations principles beliefs and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi who was a major political leader of India and the Indian independence movement It is a body of ideas and principles that describes the inspiration vision and the life work of Gandhi It is particularly associated with his contributions to the idea and practice of nonviolent resistance sometimes also called civil resistance Gandhian economics are the socio economic principles expounded by Gandhi It is largely characterised by its affinity to the principles and objectives of nonviolent humanistic socialism but with a rejection of violent class war and promotion of socio economic harmony Gandhi s economic ideas also aim to promote spiritual development and harmony with a rejection of materialism The term Gandhian economics was coined by J C Kumarappa a close supporter of Gandhi 275 Gandhian economics places importance to means of achieving the aim of development and this means must be non violent ethical and truthful in all economic spheres In order to achieve this means he advocated trusteeship decentralization of economic activities labour intensive technology and priority to weaker sections Gandhi also had letter communication with Christian anarchist Leo Tolstoy and saw himself as his disciple 276 Mahatma Gandhi Gandhi challenged future Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the modernizers in the late 1930s who called for rapid industrialization on the Soviet model which Gandhi denounced as dehumanizing and contrary to the needs of the villages where the great majority of the people lived 277 After Gandhi s death Nehru led India to large scale planning that emphasized modernization and heavy industry while modernizing agriculture through irrigation Historian Kuruvilla Pandikattu says that it was Nehru s vision not Gandhi s that was eventually preferred by the Indian State 278 Gandhi was a self described philosophical anarchist 279 and his vision of India meant an India without an underlying government 280 He once said that the ideally nonviolent state would be an ordered anarchy 281 While political systems are largely hierarchical with each layer of authority from the individual to the central government have increasing levels of authority over the layer below Gandhi believed that society should be the exact opposite where nothing is done without the consent of anyone down to the individual His idea was that true self rule in a country means that every person rules his or herself and that there is no state which enforces laws upon the people 282 Gandhian activists such as Vinoba Bhave and Jayaprakash Narayan were involved in the Sarvodaya movement which sought to promote self sufficiency amidst India s rural population by encouraging land redistribution socio economic reforms and promoting cottage industries The movement sought to combat the problems of class conflict unemployment and poverty while attempting to preserve the lifestyle and values of rural Indians which were eroding with industrialisation and modernisation Sarvodaya also included Bhoodan or the gifting of land and agricultural resources by the landlords called zamindars to their tenant farmers in a bid to end the medieval system of zamindari The Conquest of Violence An Essay on War and Revolution is a book written by dutch anarcho pacifist Bart de Ligt which deals with nonviolent resistance in part inspired by the ideas of Gandhi 283 Anarchist historian George Woodcock reports that The Conquest of Violence was read widely by British and American pacifists during the 1930s and led many of them to adopt an anarchistic point of view 284 Platformism Edit Main article Platformism Platformism is a tendency within the wider anarchist movement based on the organisational theories in the tradition of Dielo Truda s Organizational Platform of the General Union of Anarchists Draft 285 Within the New Left Edit Main article New Left Herbert Marcuse associated with the Frankfurt School of critical theory was an influential libertarian socialist philosopher of the New Left 286 The emergence of the New Left in the 1950s and 1960s led to a revival of interest in libertarian socialism 287 The New Left s critique of the Old Left s authoritarianism was associated with a strong interest in personal liberty and autonomy see the thinking of Cornelius Castoriadis which led to a rediscovery of older socialist traditions such as left communism council communism and the Industrial Workers of the World In the United States this was caused by a renewal of anarchism from the 1950s forward through writers such as Paul Goodman and anarcho pacifism which became influential in the anti nuclear movement and anti war movements of the time and which incorporated both the influences of Gandhism and Tolstoyan Christian anarchism 288 In Australia the Sydney Push was a predominantly left wing intellectual subculture in Sydney from the late 1940s to the early 1970s which became associated with the label Sydney libertarianism 289 The New Left also led to a revival of anarchism in the 1960s in the United States Journals like Radical America and Black Mask in the United States and Solidarity Big Flame and Democracy amp Nature succeeded by The International Journal of Inclusive Democracy 290 in the United Kingdom introduced a range of left libertarian ideas to a new generation social ecology autonomism and more recently participatory economics and Inclusive Democracy emerged from this The New Left in the United States also included anarchist countercultural and hippie related radical groups such as the Yippies who were led by Abbie Hoffman The Diggers 291 Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers and the White Panther Party By late 1966 The Diggers opened free stores which simply gave away their stock provided free food distributed free drugs gave away money organized free music concerts and performed works of political art 292 The Diggers took their name from the original English Diggers led by Gerrard Winstanley 293 and sought to create a mini society free of money and capitalism 294 On the other hand the Yippies employed theatrical gestures such as advancing a pig Pigasus the Immortal as a candidate for President in 1968 to mock the social status quo 295 They have been described as a highly theatrical anti authoritarian and anarchist 296 youth movement of symbolic politics 297 Since they were well known for street theater and politically themed pranks many of the old school political left either ignored or denounced them According to ABC News The group was known for street theater pranks and was once referred to as the Groucho Marxists 298 Communalism and social ecology Edit Main articles Communalism and Social ecology theory Social ecology is closely related to the work and ideas of Murray Bookchin and influenced by anarchist Peter Kropotkin Social ecologists assert that the present ecological crisis has its roots in human social problems and that the domination of human over nature stems from the domination of human over human 299 Bookchin later developed a political philosophy to complement social ecology which he called Communalism spelled with a capital C to differentiate it from other forms of communalism While originally conceived as a form of social anarchism he later developed Communalism into a separate ideology which incorporates what he saw as the most beneficial elements of anarchism Marxism syndicalism and radical ecology Politically Communalists advocate a network of directly democratic citizens assemblies in individual communities or cities organized in a confederated fashion The method used to achieve this is called libertarian municipalism and involves the establishment of face to face democratic institutions which grow and expand confederally with the goal of eventually replacing the nation state Unlike anarchists Communalists are not opposed to taking part in parliamentary politics especially municipal elections as long as candidates are libertarian socialist and anti statist in outlook Democratic confederalism Edit Main article Democratic confederalism Female fighters of the YPJ play a significant combat role in Rojava Democratic confederalism is the proposal of a libertarian socialist political system that is open towards other political groups and factions It is flexible multi cultural anti monopolistic and consensus oriented 300 Abdullah Ocalan who is the leader of the Kurdistan Workers Party founded this ideology while in prison While originally a Marxist Leninist organization the organization modified their views as Ocalan began corresponding with Murray Bookchin and incorporating his ideology The central pillars of democratic confederalism are social ecology and anarcha feminism 301 According to Ocalan his ideology is rooted in participatory democracy and autonomy at the local level In his book he says The stronger the participation the more powerful is this kind of democracy While the nation state is in contrast to democracy and even denies it democratic confederalism constitutes a continuous democratic process 302 Participism Edit Main article Participism Michael Albert Participism is a 21st century form of libertarian socialism It comprises two related economic and political systems called participatory economics or parecon and participatory politics or parpolity Parecon is an economic system proposed primarily by activist and political theorist Michael Albert and radical economist Robin Hahnel among others It uses participatory decision making as an economic mechanism to guide the production consumption and allocation of resources in a given society Proposed as an alternative to contemporary capitalist market economies and also an alternative to centrally planned socialism or coordinatorism it is described as an anarchistic economic vision and it could be considered a form of socialism as under parecon the means of production are owned by the workers It proposes to attain these ends mainly through the following principles and institutions workers and consumers councils utilizing self managerial methods for decision making balanced job complexes remuneration according to effort and sacrifice and participatory planning Under parecon the current monetary system would be replaced with a system of non transferable credit which would cease to exist upon purchase of a commodity Parpolity is a theoretical political system proposed by Stephen R Shalom It was developed as a political vision to accompany parecon Participism as a whole is critical of aspects of modern representative democracies and capitalism arguing that the level of political control by the people is not sufficient To address this problem parpolity suggests a system of Nested Councils which would include every adult member of a given society Under participism the state as such would dissolve into a mere coordinating body made up of delegates which would be recallable at any time by the nested council below them Inclusive Democracy Edit Main article Inclusive Democracy Takis Fotopoulos Inclusive Democracy is a political theory and political project that aim for direct democracy economic democracy in a stateless moneyless and marketless economy self management democracy in the social realm and ecological democracy As distinguished from the political project which is part of the democratic and autonomy traditions the theoretical project of Inclusive Democracy emerged from the work of political philosopher former academic and activist Takis Fotopoulos in Towards An Inclusive Democracy and was further developed by him and other writers in the journal Democracy amp Nature and its successor The International Journal of Inclusive Democracy an electronic journal freely available and published by the International Network for Inclusive Democracy According to Arran Gare Towards an Inclusive Democracy offers a powerful new interpretation of the history and destructive dynamics of the market and provides an inspiring new vision of the future in place of both neo liberalism and existing forms of socialism 303 As David Freeman points out although Fotopoulos approach is not openly anarchism yet anarchism seems the formal category within which he works given his commitment to direct democracy municipalism and abolition of state money and market economy 304 An artificial market is proposed by this tendency as a solution to the problem of maintaining freedom of choice for the consumer within a marketless and moneyless economy an artificial market operates in much the same way as traditional markets but uses labour vouchers or personal credit in place of traditional money According to Takis Fotopoulos an artificial market secures real freedom of choice without incurring the adverse effects associated with real markets 305 Insurrectionary anarchism Edit Main article Insurrectionary anarchism Insurrectionary anarchism is a revolutionary theory practice and tendency within the anarchist movement which emphasizes the theme of insurrection within anarchist practice It is critical of formal organizations such as labor unions and federations that are based on a political programme and periodic congresses Instead insurrectionary anarchists advocate informal organization and small affinity group based organization Insurrectionary anarchists put value in attack permanent class conflict and a refusal to negotiate or compromise with class enemies Contemporary insurrectionary anarchism inherits the views and tactics of anti organizational anarcho communism 306 and illegalism Between 1880 and 1890 307 with the perspective of an immanent revolution 307 who was opposed to the official workers movement which was then in the process of formation general social democratisation They were opposed not only to political and statist struggles but also to strikes which put forward wage or other claims or which were organised by trade unions 307 However w hile they were not opposed to strikes as such they were opposed to trade unions and the struggle for the eight hour day This anti reformist tendency was accompanied by an anti organisational tendency and its partisans declared themselves in favour of agitation amongst the unemployed for the expropriation of foodstuffs and other articles for the expropriatory strike and in some cases for individual recuperation or acts of terrorism 307 A resurgence of such ideas happened in the peculiar conditions of postwar Italy and Greece 308 Magonism and neo Zapatismo Edit Main articles Magonism and Neozapatismo See also Emiliano Zapata and Zapatista Army of National Liberation Subcomandante Marcos The Zapatista Army of National Liberation Ejercito Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional EZLN often referred to as the zapatistas is a revolutionary leftist group based in Chiapas the southernmost state of Mexico Since 1994 the group has been in a declared war against the Mexican state though this war has been primarily nonviolent and defensive against military paramilitary and corporate incursions into Chiapas Their social base is mostly rural indigenous people but they have some supporters in urban areas and internationally Their former spokesperson was Subcomandante Marcos also known as Delegate Zero in relation to The Other Campaign Unlike other Zapatist spokespeople Marcos is not an indigenous Maya Since December 1994 the Zapatistas had been gradually forming several autonomous municipalities called Rebel Zapatista Autonomous Municipalities MAREZ In these municipalities an assembly of local representatives forms the Juntas de Buen Gobierno or Councils of Good Government JBGs These are not recognized by the federal or state governments and they oversee local community programs on food health and education as well as taxation The EZLN political formations have happened in two phases generally called Aquascalientes and Caracoles The group takes its name from Emiliano Zapata the agrarian reformer 309 and commander of the Liberation Army of the South during the Mexican Revolution and sees itself as his ideological heir Zapatista originally referred to a member of the revolutionary guerrilla movement founded about 1910 by Zapata His Liberation Army of the South Ejercito Libertador del Sur fought during the Mexican Revolution for the redistribution of agricultural land Zapata and his army and allies including Pancho Villa fought for agrarian reform in Mexico Specifically they wanted to establish communal land rights for Mexico s indigenous population which had mostly lost its land to the wealthy elite of European descent Zapata was partly influenced by an anarchist from Oaxaca named Ricardo Flores Magon The influence of Flores Magon on Zapata can be seen in the Zapatist Plan de Ayala but even more noticeably in their slogan this slogan was never used by Zapata Tierra y libertad or Land and liberty the title and maxim of Flores Magon s most famous work Zapata s introduction to anarchism came via a local schoolteacher Otilio Montano Sanchez later a general in Zapata s army executed on 17 May 1917 who exposed Zapata to the works of Peter Kropotkin and Flores Magon at the same time as Zapata was observing and beginning to participate in the struggles of the peasants for the land In reference to inspirational figures in nearly all EZLN villages exist murals accompanying images of Zapata Che Guevara and Subcomandante Marcos 310 The ideology of the Zapatista movement Zapatism synthesizes traditional Mayan practices with elements of libertarian socialism anarchism 311 312 and Marxism 313 The historical influence of Mexican anarchists and various Latin American socialists is apparent on Zapatism as with the positions of

For us nothing Para todos todo Para nosotros nada Left wing market anarchism Edit Main article Left wing market anarchism Left wing market anarchism is a left libertarian and individualist anarchist 315 form of libertarian socialism 316 317 associated with scholars such as Kevin Carson 318 319 Roderick T Long 320 321 Charles W Johnson 322 Brad Spangler 323 Samuel Edward Konkin III 324 Chris Matthew Sciabarra 325 and Gary Chartier 326 who stress the value of radically free markets termed freed markets to distinguish them from the common conception which these libertarians believe to be riddled with statist and capitalist privileges 327 Referred to as left wing market anarchists 328 or market oriented left libertarians 329 proponents of this approach strongly affirm the classical liberal ideas of self ownership and free markets while maintaining that taken to their logical conclusions these ideas support anti capitalist 330 331 anti corporatist anti hierarchical pro labor positions in economics anti imperialism in foreign policy and thoroughly liberal or radical views regarding cultural and social issues such as gender sexuality and race The genealogy of contemporary market oriented left libertarianism sometimes labeled left wing market anarchism 332 overlaps to a significant degree with that of Steiner Vallentyne left libertarianism as the roots of that tradition are sketched in the book The Origins of Left Libertarianism 333 Carson Long style left libertarianism is rooted in 19th century mutualism and in the work of figures such as Thomas Hodgskin and the individualist anarchists Benjamin Tucker and Lysander Spooner While with notable exceptions market oriented libertarians after Tucker tended to ally with the political right relationships between such libertarians and the New Left thrived in the 1960s laying the groundwork for modern left wing market anarchism 334 Left wing market anarchism identifies with left libertarianism or left wing libertarianism 335 which names several related yet distinct approaches to politics society culture and political and social theory which stress both individual freedom and social justice Unlike right libertarians they believe that neither claiming nor mixing one s labor with natural resources is enough to generate full private property rights 336 337 and maintain that natural resources land oil gold and trees ought to be held in some egalitarian manner either unowned or owned collectively 337 Those left libertarians who support private property do so under the condition that recompense is offered to the local community Communization Edit Main article Communization Communization is a contemporary communist theory in which we find is a mixing up of insurrectionist anarchism the communist ultra left post autonomists anti political currents groups like the Invisible Committee as well as more explicitly communizing currents such as Theorie Communiste and Endnotes Obviously at the heart of the word is communism and as the shift to communization suggests communism as a particular activity and process 338 The association of the term communization with a self identified ultra left was cemented in France in the 1970s where it came to describe not a transition to a higher phase of communism but a vision of communist revolution itself The 1975 Pamphlet A World Without Money thus states insurrection and communisation are intimately linked There would not be first a period of insurrection and then later thanks to this insurrection the transformation of social reality The insurrectional process derives its force from communisation itself 339 The term is still used in this sense in France today and has spread into English usage as a result of the translation of texts by Gilles Dauve and Theorie Comuniste two key figures in this tendency In collaboration with other left communists such as Francois Martin and Karl Nesic Dauve has attempted to fuse critique and develop different left communist currents most notably the Italian movement associated with Amadeo Bordiga and its heretical journal Invariance German Dutch council communism and the French perspectives associated with Socialisme ou Barbarie and the Situationist International 340 In the late 1990s a close yet not identical sense of communization was developed by the French post situationist group Tiqqun In keeping with their ultra left predecessors Tiqqun s predilection for the term seems to be its emphasis on communism as an immediate process rather than a far off goal but for Tiqqun it is no longer synonymous with the revolution considered as an historical event but rather becomes identifiable with all sorts of activities from squatting and setting up communes to simply sharing that would typically be understood as pre revolutionary 341 From an ultra left perspective such a politics of dropping out or as Tiqqun put it desertion setting up spaces and practices that are held to partially autonomous from capitalism is typically dismissed as either naive or reactionary 342 Due to the popularity of the Tiqqun related works Call and The Coming Insurrection in the American anarchist circles it tended to be this latter sense of communization that was employed in American anarchist and insurrectionist communiques notably within the Californian student movement of 2009 2010 343 Contemporary libertarian socialism EditSee also Contemporary anarchism The global Occupy movement is noted to have distinct libertarian socialist principles A surge of popular interest in libertarian socialism occurred in Western nations during the 1960s and 1970s 344 Anarchism was influential in the counterculture of the 1960s 345 346 347 and anarchists actively participated in the late 1960s students and workers revolts 348 In 1968 the International of Anarchist Federations was founded during an international anarchist conference held in Carrara by the three existing European federations of France the Italian and the Iberian Anarchist Federation as well as the Bulgarian Anarchist Federation in French exile 349 350 The uprisings of May 1968 also led to a small resurgence of interest in left communist ideas Various small left communist groups emerged around the world predominantly in the leading capitalist countries A series of conferences of the communist left began in 1976 with the aim of promoting international and cross tendency discussion but these petered out in the 1980s without having increased the profile of the movement or its unity of ideas 351 Prominent left communist groups existing today include the International Communist Party International Communist Current and the Internationalist Communist Tendency The housing and employment crisis in most of Western Europe led to the formation of communes and squatter movements like that of Barcelona Spain In Denmark squatters occupied a disused military base and declared the Freetown Christiania an autonomous haven in central Copenhagen Around the turn of the 21st century libertarian socialism grew in popularity and influence as part of the anti war anti capitalist and anti globalisation movements 352 Anarchists became known for their involvement in protests against the meetings of the World Trade Organization WTO Group of Eight G8 and the World Economic Forum WEF Some anarchist factions at these protests engaged in rioting property destruction and violent confrontations with police These actions were precipitated by ad hoc leaderless anonymous cadres known as black blocs other organisational tactics pioneered in this time include security culture affinity groups and the use of decentralised technologies such as the internet 352 A significant event of this period was the confrontations at WTO conference in Seattle in 1999 352 For English anarchist scholar Simon Critchley contemporary anarchism can be seen as a powerful critique of the pseudo libertarianism of contemporary neo liberalism One might say that contemporary anarchism is about responsibility whether sexual ecological or socio economic it flows from an experience of conscience about the manifold ways in which the West ravages the rest it is an ethical outrage at the yawning inequality impoverishment and disenfranchisment that is so palpable locally and globally 353 This might also have been motivated by the collapse of really existing socialism and the capitulation to neo liberalism of Western social democracy 354 International anarchist federations in existence include the International of Anarchist Federations IAF the International Workers Association IWA and International Libertarian Solidarity ILS The largest organised anarchist movement today is in Spain in the form of the Confederacion General del Trabajo CGT and the Confederacion Nacional del Trabajo CNT CGT membership was estimated to be around 100 000 for 2003 355 Libertarian socialists in the early 21st century have been involved in the alter globalization movement squatter movement social centers infoshops anti poverty groups such as Ontario Coalition Against Poverty and Food Not Bombs tenants unions housing cooperatives intentional communities generally and egalitarian communities anti sexist organizing grassroots media initiatives digital media and computer activism experiments in participatory economics anti racist and anti fascist groups like Anti Racist Action and Anti Fascist Action activist groups protecting the rights of immigrants and promoting the free movement of people such as the

the free grouping of individuals for the purpose of producing real social wealth an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the necessities of life according to individual desires tastes and inclinations Tucker Benjamin 1926 Individual Liberty Individualist anarchist Benjamin Tucker defined anarchism as opposition to authority as follows They found that they must turn either to the right or to the left follow either the path of Authority or the path of Liberty Marx went one way Warren and Proudhon the other Thus were born State Socialism and Anarchism Authority takes many shapes but broadly speaking her enemies divide themselves into three classes first those who abhor her both as a means and as an end of progress opposing her openly avowedly sincerely consistently universally second those who profess to believe in her as a means of progress but who accept her only so far as they think she will subserve their own selfish interests denying her and her blessings to the rest of the world third those who distrust her as a means of progress believing in her only as an end to be obtained by first trampling upon violating and outraging her These three phases of opposition to Liberty are met in almost every sphere of thought and human activity Good representatives of the first are seen in the Catholic Church and the Russian autocracy of the second in the Protestant Church and the Manchester school of politics and political economy of the third in the atheism of Gambetta and the socialism of Karl Marx Ward

foremost negatively as opposed to other socialist traditions I have labelled this negative pole socialist orthodoxy composed of both Leninists and social democrats What I suggested was that these Left communist thinkers differentiated their own understandings of communism from a strand of socialism that came to follow a largely electoral road in the West pursuing a kind of social capitalism and a path to socialism that predominated in the peripheral and semi peripheral countries which sought revolutionary conquest of power and led to something like state capitalism Generally the Left communist thinkers were to find these paths locked within the horizons of capitalism the law of value money private property class the state and they were to characterize these solutions as statist

synonym either for anarchism in general or social anarchism in particular Later it became a term for the left or Konkinite wing of the free market libertarian movement and has since come to cover a range of pro market but anti capitalist positions mostly individualist anarchist including agorism and mutualism often with an implication of sympathies such as for radical feminism or the labor movement not usually shared by anarcho capitalists In a third sense it has recently come to be applied to a position combining individual self ownership with an egalitarian approach to natural

seventeenth century English Levellers and the eighteenth century French Encyclopedists among their ideological forebears It was in these conditions of class struggle that among a whole cluster of radical groups such as the Fifth Monarchy Men the Levellers and the Ranters there emerged perhaps the first real proto anarchists the Diggers who like the classical 19th century anarchists identified political and economic power and who believed that a social rather than political revolution was necessary for the establishment of justice Gerrard Winstanley the Diggers leader made an identification with the word of God and the principle of reason an equivalent philosophy to that found in Tolstoy s The Kingdom of God is Within You In fact it seems likely Tolstoy took much of his own inspiration from Winstanley Marlow Anarchism and Christianity While the ideal commonwealth conceived by James Harrington tried to combine the existence of a powerful state with respect for the political rights of the citizens Thomas Hobbes and Gerrard Winstanley for opposite reasons denied the possibility of power being shared between the state and the people Before defining the government of a true

managers of their own small enterprises answerable to themselves free of debt and more generally with no institutional reason for servility or deference Such free standing farmers Jefferson thought were the basis of a vigorous and independent public sphere where citizens could speak their mind without fear or favor Somewhere in between these two poles lies the contemporary situation of most

logical deduction from the principle laid down by Adam Smith in the early chapters of his Wealth of Nations namely that labor is the true measure of price Half a century or more after Smith enunciated the principle above stated Socialism picked it up where he had dropped it and in following it to its logical conclusions made it the basis of a new economic philosophy This seems to have been done independently by three different men of three different nationalities in three different languages Josiah Warren an American Pierre J Proudhon a Frenchman Karl Marx a German Jew That the work of this interesting trio should have been done so nearly simultaneously would seem to indicate that Socialism was in the air and that the time was ripe and the conditions favorable for the appearance of this

was undoubtedly Oscar Wilde The Soul of Man Under Socialism Wilde as we have seen declared himself an anarchist on at least one occasion during the 1890s and he greatly admired Kropotkin whom he had met Later in De Profundis he described Kropotkin s life as one of the most perfect lives I have come across in my own experience and talked of him as a man with a soul of that beautiful white Christ that seems coming out of Russia But in The Soul of Man Under Socialism which appeared in 1890 it is Godwin rather than Kropotkin whose influence seems dominant George Woodcock Anarchism A History of

domination however were various revolutionary tendencies which still drew on Marx s work to inform their struggles and which rejected both social democratic and Marxist Leninist versions of his theory The most interesting of these those that are relevant to my current purpose have been those which insisted on the primacy of the self activity and creativity of people in struggle against capitalism Within the space of these tendencies there has developed a coherent critique of orthodox Marxism that includes not only a rejection of the concept of the transition but a reconceptualization of the process of transcending capitalism that has remarkable similarities to Kropotkin s thinking on this subject Thus one of the earliest political tendencies within which this approach appeared after the Russian revolution of 1917 was that of Council communism which saw the workers councils in Germany see Bavarian Soviet Republic or the soviets in Russia as new organizational forms constructed by the people As with the anarchists they too saw the Bolshevik take over of the soviets like that of the trade unions as subverting the revolution and beginning the restoration of domination and exploitation Over the years this emphasis on working class autonomy has resulted in a reinterpretation of Marxist theory that has brought out the two sided character of the class struggle and shifted the focus from capital the preoccupation of orthodox Marxism to the workers As a result not only has there been a recognition that capitalism seeks to subordinate everyone s life from the traditional factory proletariat to peasants housewives and students but that all those peoples struggles involve both the resistance to this subordination and the effort to construct alternative ways of being
