Co-operation (Van Ornum)

From The Libertarian Labyrinth
Jump to: navigation, search

William Henry Van Ornum, author of Why Government at All?, published his 19-part series, "Co-operation" in The Twentieth Century in 1894, a moment when that periodical was actively promoting the "cooperative commonwealth" of American marxist Laurence Gronlund, and it should be understood as an anarchist alternative to that project. Van Ornum was one of the anarchist writers willing to go head-to-head, and proposal for proposal, with the state socialists.
