Pinned toot

Hello, everyone! As many folks from Tumblr are moving here, I figured I might as well. For the many who don't know me here, here's an introduction post.

For those wondering about the second part of the username, agorism is a left-wing, anticapitalist form of market anarchism similar in style to mutualism that focuses more heavily on using the counter-economy (any voluntary activity the state does not approve of) to demolish the state. Both black/gray markets and mutual aid are part of this.

So while you'll find the regular solarpunk stuff from my blog, you'll also occasionally see me suggesting things like a fully decentralized hydro-powered mutual crypto-credit system.

Though I'm well aware my views are odd compared to the average solarpunk, I'm happy to vibe with a crew of a similar mind! Thanks for having me!

As we agorists say:
Agora! Anarchy! Action!

So the question came up if I was a socialist earlier, and I'll try to answer this as best I can.

Short answer: depends on the definition.

Long answer: I identify more with left-libertarianism than I do with distinctly libertarian socialism. Part of the reason for this is that there's vicious debates online as to whether or not agorism is socialist, with good arguments on both sides. That being said, if you consider a stateless society with a worker-run economy to be libertarian socialist, then, sure, I am a socialist. Agorism's goal is a free, distributed network of sole proprieters and non-hierarchical, worker-owned businesses in a stateless society. However, if your understanding of socialism requires that markets not exist, and instead the society runs entirely on mutual aid and gift economies, I am not a socialist. As long as each individual in the network is sufficient enough that they don't have to use markets to survive, I have no issue with free markets, and quite enjoy them.

If you are unfamiliar with the group Equal Exchange, you should definitely go check them out. Great co-op that I heard about thanks to @Indigopenn and her folks.
