Since October 2012, the Molinari Institute has beenn publishing a magazine (initially quarterly; possibly later bimonthly) titled The Industrial Radical, and devoted to radical libertarian political and social analysis in the tradition of Benjamin Tuckers 1881-1908 Liberty, Emma Goldmans 1906-1917 Mother Earth, and Murray Rothbards 1965-1968 Left & Right.
Topics to be explored in future issues include: radical libertarian alternatives to statism, militarism, and intellectual property; the social and cultural requirements of a free and flourishing society; the structure of work, family, and property relationships in such a society; strategies for getting from here to there; and the possibility of gains from trade between the left/socialist and right/capitalist traditions within libertarianism.
The title Industrial Radical honors the libertarian and individualist anarchist thinkers and activists of the 19th century, who were industrial in the sense of championing what they called the industrial mode of social organization, based on voluntary cooperation and mutual benefit, over the militant mode, based on hierarchy, regimentation, and violence; and who were radical in the sense of recognizing that social problems are embedded in sustaining networks of institutions and practices, and so can be addressed only via thoroughgoing social change. Their approach informs our vision.
