Is C4SS really a stepping stone to proper anarchism or a roadblock by failing to wean people off market logic and market economics i.e. replacing support for capitalism by support for mythic 'free markets'.
They haven't took on board Marx or Kropotkin or Spanish revolution or anything beyond very limited ideas.
I'm tolerant of them to the extent they are mutualistic but anarchism has moved on and individualist anarchism is discredited.
A friend writes "You see how they cling to 19th century ideas about self-employed artisans working freely on a free market. Ricardian socialism mixed with austrian econ. that's pretty much what C4SS promotes.
and Carson is the most Leftist of all of them, which is saying a lot".
