Suit-you-all Mutualism

Shawn Wilbur announces a new Mutualism.info blog.

One might say it represents the shallower end for newcomers, while his regular blog represents the deeper end.

(I use the phrase “his regular blog” with trepidation, as he has a few more.)

    Thanks, Roderick. But I’m still partial to the Seventh Day Adventists.

      … at least they come to my door and knock first and don’t walk on the grass.

        I’m certainly partial to some Seventh Day Adventists.

          Trade, flea markets, unions, co-ops, the back-to-the-land movement and so on are good. But a common ownership of the means of production is bad. I value my liberty and cherish the fruits of my labor, thank you very much. So yes, I’m partial to all manifestations of the freedom of religion over the Fifth Internationale any day.

          Okay, but what does that have to do with mutualism? Mutualists don’t favour “common ownership of the means of production.”

    Generally speaking, what is your opinion on mutualism?

      Well, it comes in different flavours: Proudhon, Greene, Tucker, Lum, Kevin Carson, Francois Tremblay, and Shawn, for example, don’t all believe exactly the same thing. My views on property and value are closer to the agorist constellation than to the mutualist constellation, but I’m certainly closer in my outlook to the mutualists than to some agorists (I’m just not alongside certain agorists, if ya know what I mean) as well as to many anarcho-capitalists (e.g. in my fondness for worker management). And both agorism and mutualism are currently in a process of self-exploration and self-definition (with Shawn being in the forefront of the latter process).

    Thanks for the plug, Roderick.

    I would have had the trepidation at calling the Two-Gun Mutualism blog “regular,” which is why it seems to make sense to split off some of the content into specialized blogs.
