Thanks to efforts by the Tulsa Alliance of the Libertarian Left, we present a new pamphlet featuring five essays by C4SS Advisory Panel member and contributing writer Gary Chartier — Socialist Ends, Market Means.
Please note that the format of the PDF file features a staggered page order layout intended to facilitate printing and folding booklets.
“If the notion of left libertarianism is going to make sense, we need to be clear on what is and isn’t left. I don’t think there’s anything wrong-headed about other recent characterizations of the central concern of the left as anti-authoritarianism, openness to the future, or opposition to privilege. I want, though, to offer a different proposal regarding what I take to be the central elements of a leftist agenda and to suggest what may be a thread capable unifying these elements.
An authentically leftist position, I suggest, is marked by opposition to subordination, exclusion, and deprivation.” —Gary Chartier
