Neither Nationalisation Nor Privatisation


Product Information

For those tempted today by calls to re-nationalise industry to reverse the effects of the 1980s privatisation disasters, this important volume demonstrates the anarchist stand against the Labour Party's post-war industrial politics, one of its salutory lessons being that Labour politicians in office are no better than the others. They seek merely to reform the capitalist system around the edges, thus making it more 'efficient' while leaving it essentially untouched. For the writers of these articles, selected from the journal Freedom (with one from Dwight MacDonald's US magazine Politics) from 1945-1950, economic and social justice cannot be imposed from above, whether by state ownership - as in Labour's post-war nationalisation programme, or by private ownership - as in the 1980s Thatcherite frenzy of 'popular' capitalism. Rather, such concerns must form part of a truly libertarian society, where 'property is theft', and the means of production and distribution are controlled by the workers, but owned by nobody. What price free libraries for the 21st century?
