It’s always seemed to me that the appropriate economic paradigm for anarcho-pluralism/pan-secessionism would be a synthesis of distributivist ideas like John promotes and the ideas of classical libertarian socialism of the kind Larry Gambone has described in detail incorporated into a broader ideological framework of libertarian anti-state in the way Kevin Carson has written about. It beats the hell out of the Left’s “More taxes! More welfare! More regulation!” positions.
