Anarchism, Prescription, and Prediction Reply

Good piece from Jeremy.

As an anarchist, I believe that distributed systems of decision making like the market are the best ways for processing information and organizing society. Central planning doesn’t work, and my ideology seeks to better understand the way humans relate rather than making them turn into something they’re not. Therefore, since I don’t wish to impose a plan on anybody, I really have none to offer – just ideas, reflections, and some theories. This often cripples me rhetorically, though – people don’t seem to understand why I can’t just “give them a plan” for how anarchism would work. It just goes to show you how deeply ingrained politics and central, top-down managerialism really is in our society.
