Anonymous asked:What are your thought on anarchist that dislike anarchocapitalism on the grounds that capitalism is just as bad as the state?
The majority of the times the problem comes down to definitions.
Most anarcho-capitalists define capitalism as the voluntary interaction between individuals.
Most anarchists who despise capitalism define capitalism as what the current system we live under. Which is a marriage between the state and corporations.
Though, I’d hope that all anarchists, capitalist, socialist, mutualist, or communist would agree that all interactions should be voluntary. They might have slight disagreement on ownership, capital goods, labor theory of value, or property. But they all agree that no one should initiate force against others.
The criticism against anarcho-capitalists should be against the Ayn Rand Puritan work ethic. A lot of an-caps believe that work in the most important thing. I think that is absolutely ridiculous.
Work is only a means to an end.
Anarchists should be concerned about individual happiness.
