A Reply to the International Socialist Organization
by Tom Wetzel (Mar 12, 2009) (from my ZNet blog)
I was prompted to write this by Paul D’Amato’s two recent articles in Socialist Worker criticizing anarchism
(http://socialistworker.org/2009/03/06/marxist-view-of-the-state) but this will also give me the
opportunity to provide an explanation of some basic social anarchist ideas. I take it that
social or Left-anarchism and libertarian socialism are the same thing. Thus I use the
phrases “social anarchism” and “libertarian socialism” interchangeably.
