The Distinctiveness of x-Libertarianism

Embora (para minha frustração suponho) continue a não perceber porque esta gente anda sempre tão irritada contra os ancaps - suponho que por uma questão de prioridades políticas, e porque suponho que se irritem que o resto da malta esteja preocupada com os princípios radicais do liberalismo, e não lhe dêem o carinho que julgam merecer pelas suas nobres intenções — The Distinctiveness of Left-Libertarianism por Gary Chartier:
Left-libertarianism in the relevant sense is a position that is simultaneously leftist and libertarian. It features leftist commitments to:
  • engaging in class analysis and class struggle;
  • opposing corporate privilege;
  • undermining structural poverty
  • embracing shared responsibility for challenging economic vulnerability;
  • affirming wealth redistribution;
  • supporting grass-roots empowerment;
  • humanizing worklife;
  • protecting civil liberties;
  • opposing the drug war;
  • supporting the rights of sex workers;
  • challenging police violence;
  • promoting environmental well-being and animal welfare;
  • fostering children’s liberation;
  • rejecting racism, sexism, heterosexism, nativism, and national chauvinism; and
  • resisting war, imperialism and colonialism.
Simultaneously, it features libertarian commitments to:
  • affirming robust protections for just possessory claims;
  • embracing freed markets and a social ideal of peaceful, voluntary cooperation; and
  • crafting a thoroughly anti-statist politics.
