The Industrial Radical Is Here!

The first issue of the Molinari Institute’s long-awaited periodical, The Industrial Radical (or iRad for short), is complete and in the process of being printed, and will be available for distribution in October. I just approved the cover proof. The Industrial Radical will debut at the Molinari/C4SS booth at Libertopia in San Diego next month.

The Industrial Radical

The 40-page first issue focuses on market anarchist solutions to the various disasters that have dominated the headlines over the last decade – from the financial crisis and Middle East wars to hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill, and the Fukushima tsunami and reactor meltdown. (The Hokusai print on the cover is our combined nod to Katrina and Fukushima.)

We also have a special section on the 2012 election, in which we advise you on whom to vote for. And yet, as a nonprofit, we cannot endorse candidates! So how can we offer voting advice? How can this antithesis be synthesised? (Okay, you’ve probably already figured that out.)

Contributors to issue #1 include Kevin Carson, Gary Chartier, David D’Amato, Phil Jacobson, Charles Johnson, Ben Kilpatrick, Tom Knapp, Sheldon Richman, Darian Worden, and your humble correspondent.

    “…in which we advise you on whom to vote for.”

    Unless that list contains one of the following:

    1. Nobody (

    2. None of the Above (or some variant

    3. Vermin Supreme or some other “joke” candidate (aren’t they all jokes? :P)

    Then I’ll make sure to start a local anarchist hearsay book burning! Prepare yourself for massive profits at the expense of your ugly publication Roderick!

    Muhahaha! 😀

      I think it’s pretty obvious that the author is referring to the only one who will keep campaign promises: nobody.

    or some other “joke” candidate (aren’t they all jokes? 😛 )

    But if they’re all jokes, then that means Romney or Obama would be acceptable, by your rules?

    Getting a meaningful periodical together is no small feat. Congratulations to all involved!

    Are you sure you want to refer to “iRad”? (Apple might sue you.)

      They’ll really get iRate when they hear about our FMACbook Pro.

    This is great. But shouldn’t you have an online version? Or will you?

      There will indeed be an online version.
