    Eric Fleischmann on Laurance Labadie & Historical Materialism

    Eric Fleischmann on Laurance Labadie & Historical Materialism

    This month on Mutual Exchange Radio, we are joined by Eric Fleischmann, leading an informative and inspiring conversation about their comprehensive Laurance Labadie archival project, Labadie's special relevance for the market anarchist tradition, their study on Historical Materialism and more.
    Eric Fleischmann (he/they) is an undergrad student working in the solidarity economy and pursuing a double major in anthropology and philosophy. He is an anarchist indebted to communistic and continental thought but engaged primarily in the traditions of mutualism, North American individualist anarchism, and modern left-libertarianism. He has been involved in various capacities with numerous leftist, left-leaning, and labor-oriented organizations—generally ones which promote forms of politico-economic decentralization and democratization and/or degrees of left unity (Center for a Stateless Society, Industrial Workers of the World, Union of Musicians and Allied Workers, Resource Generation, and his college’s Leftist Coalition). He has also played in and currently plays in several punk, hardcore, and alternative bands (Soy., Consumerist, Manbitesdog, and Nope) and has released multiple albums.

Growing Left Market Anarchy

Mutual exchange radio is a series of in-depth discussions between participants in social movements, students of various schools of thought and their fellow travelers. Personally, I can’t get enough of the perspectives and values discussed here and seize on any opportunity to consume media dedicated to these topics. I highly recommend it to anyone.

If you like tyranny…

You will love market “anarchy.” If you think society would be improved by unchecked power for corporations and capitalists, this is for you. The rest of the 98% of humanity? This is literally a celebration of parasitism. And BORING! Maybe they think you will be so bored you won’t notice how cynical and misanthropic these boot licking leeches are.

Finally a Platform for Individualist Anarchism

C4SS’s Mutual Exchange Radio is a left-wing market anarchist podcast that produces in-depth long form interviews with guests from across the libertarian left. The host Zachery brings extensive knowledge from an individualist anarchist perspective that allows him to engage thoughtful with his guests. Would highly recommend.
