Materialism and Thick Libertarianism

“Two years ago, I gave a presentation titled ‘Prerequisites for Freedom: An Individualist Anarchist Perspective’ to a philosophy discussion group, in which I talked about the connection between thick libertarianism and 19th century North American individualist anarchism and how progressive and liberatory values are necessary for genuine and necessarily anti-capitalist individualism. For the uninitiated, the ‘thickness’ in thick libertarianism is, according to Nathan Goodman, ‘any broadening of libertarian concerns beyond overt aggression and state power to concern about what cultural and social conditions are most conducive to liberty.'” (08/02/22)
