Libertarian Communism - Classical Anarchism

The theoretical position I feel closest to is that of classical anarchism - sometimes known as libertarian communism, though that combination of words will confuse most people these days, what with the Hayekites having stolen the first and the Stalinists the second. I am, however, a pragmatist, so I probably seem more like a market socialist most of the time.


red and black flag The red is the red of the communist flag and symbolises material equality, or the principle of "from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs". The black is the black of the anarchist flag and symbolises social freedom, the freedom of each individual to do as they please so long as their actions don't cause harm to others. Together red and black symbolise libertarian communism. It goes diagonally as a negation of nationalism and a reaffirmation of internationalism. (From Flags of the World)
