    Default Anarchist Bookfair

    On tomorrow all day in Liberty Hall. Great place to pick up books and a few interesting debates and stuff on as well. I would be an anarchist were it not for my world weary cynicism

    Would they be receptive to my pro-austerity viewpoint?

    I might go along actually. I picked up some hardcore revolutionary literature when I was in Cuba recently, I may as well keep going along this path to anarcho-communism.

    Well they would listen to you anyway! Definitely the most tolerant people on the left

    But the most reality averse. Im no fan of anarchism whether its left or right, (Im more of a classical liberal/libertarian minarchist) but at least the Ancaps understand economics.

    I don't know. I think there is a lot of merit in decentralised self-goverance and economic organisation. Especially in the light of the craziness illustrated in the story about the hidden bank accounts.

    My reading of history, however, would make me sceptical of any 'revolution' to bring that about not becoming mired in the horrors we have seen before.

    I've been meaning to go to one of these for years, but I can never get around to organising myself. Badum!

    Are the books cheap?

    Most of the stuff is second hand including a lot of books you would not see anywhere else. You can get some real finds in fact. There are also first hand books and a variety of journals and newspapers and pamphlets and stuff. For anarchists it is well organised!

    which is why the Ancap version of it based on property rights is the only version of it that wouldnt end up in massive bloodshed and tyranny from the start.
