With the essay on Proudhon and the state finally in the hands of the reviewers, I’ve been able to think a little more seriously about what portions of the Two-Gun Mutualism: Rearmed book are both of general interest and unlikely to be better dealt with in the context of the Atercracy project. After recontextualizing and “rebranding,” there is still a basic study of Proudhon’s thought and its modern application that remains to be written. Here’s a tentative outline of the “replacement” text:
EVERYTHING IN THE BALANCE:Exploring the Theory and Practice of Proudhonian AnarchismIntroduction: The Long Road Back to ProudhonPart One: Pierre-Joseph Proudhon: An Introduction and RestorationI. The Philosophy of ProgressTwo Kinds of TruthThe Nature of the RevolutionII. Anarchism: Critical, Constructive and UngovernableIII. Absolutes and Free Absolutes: Proudhon’s Theory of BeingsIV. In the Balance: Proudhon’s Theory of JusticePart Two: Neo-Proudhonian ExplorationsI. A Gift Economy of PropertyII. State and Market as Collective BeingsIII. Proudhon for LoversIV. Thinking Like an Anarchist
There are also a few purely practical observations on topics like occupancy and use, mutual banking, and the cost principle that I want to eventually write up, and those will probably appear on the mutualism.info blog.
