The New Yorker has an article on the revival of anarchism, and it’s pretty good. While focusing mostly on the ideology of the Occupy Wall Street movement, author Kelefa Sanneh does manage to work in some nice references to more libertarian forms of anarchism, such as the anarcho-capitalism of Murray Rothbard.While the essay contains some history–including the debate between Karl Marx on one side and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Mikhail Bakunin on the other–most of it focuses on the work of David Graeber, an anthropologist, prominent Occupy member, and author of Debt: The First 5,000 Years.
Graeber represents the most visible form of anarchism today, and one that’s decidedly non-libertarian. That is too bad, because so much of the anger Graeber-style anarchists have for the current system fits nicely within critiques of statism and corporatism made by both anarchist and mainstream libertarians.
