Kevin Carson Named Research Associate at C4SS


Celebrated yet controversial left-libertarian author becomes first C4SS paid staff member.

Studies in Mutualist Political EconomyAUBURN, ALABAMA – November 15, 2008 – Center for a Stateless Society – Kevin Carson, author of Studies in Mutualist Political Economy and a forthcoming major work on anarchist organizational theory has joined the Center for a Stateless Society as the Center’s first paid staff member. In his role as Research Associate beginning January 1st of 2009, Carson will be producing quarterly short research studies for the Center to publish as well as writing news commentary.

C4SS director Brad Spangler said of the move, “We’re developing a new fundraising initiative and early on in that process an anonymous donor stepped up to fund the first quarter of Kevin’s research work and the first month of his news analysis for us. We’re very pleased to announce this, as Carson has been a key figure on the radical end of the libertarian movement. Supporting his work means he’ll be able to do more and better of what he already does amazingly well.”


The mission of the Molinari Institute is to promote understanding of the philosophy of Market Anarchism as a sane, consensual alternative to the hypertrophic violence of the State. The Institute takes its name from Gustave de Molinari (1819-1912), originator of the theory of Market Anarchism. The Center for a Stateless Society is the Molinari Institute’s media center.

    Does all this sudden activity surround the C4SS mean that the Molinari Institute sites will be updated? Perhaps even moved over to one of those Molinari sites that Charles has?

    Three cheers for this! It’s great that Kevin will have this kind of increased opportunity to do the creative, challenging work with which he’s been gifting us of late.

    Black Bloke — maybe. But my top Molinari-related priority is to get The Industrial Radical finally airborne.

    Do you have all of the entries that you’ll require for the premiere issue?

    Congratulations on this; Kevin Carson is a fantastic pickup for you guys!

    As a side note, I’d love to be of assistance to either of your projects (C4SS/Molinari) in any way I can; let me know if there’s anything I can do.
