On Anarchists

Some anarchists seem more opposed to capitalism than to statism. This makes sense in light of the fact that they view capitalism as a type of statism. But many who identify as anarchist don’t see capitalism as a type of statism. This really irks the anarchists who do. Some advice to these anarchists: rather than alienating those who identify as anarchists who disagree with you on the identity of capitalism, and thereby losing worthy allies, stand with them on combating statism. If you are correct, then abolishing the state will take capitalism along with it. What do you have to lose? And that’s today’s two cents.
