Elaborate on how you can be anarchist and also be anti capitalist. An example is Noumena. How is it practical, and how could you create a system that would prevent capitalism and privatization without many flaws that would destroy it internally? Anarcho-Capitalism is interesting, but it already has many flaws regarding it's practicality, so it will be interesting to see if there are a few people willing to debate the practicality of an Anti-Capitalistic Anarchist system. Obviously there is Anarcho-Syndicalism, but I will elaborate later if need be on why that system is broken and could never realistically be applied.

Syndicalism is a strategy for anarchists and socialists living under capitalism, not a "system" in the sense of a vision for a future society. As for preventing privatization, that assumes that anti-capitalists are necessarily collectivists. Most are, and indeed most anarchists are, but individualist anti-capitalism is certainly no more fringe than anarcho-capitalism. Noumena is one, if I'm mistaken. So was the original anarchist, Proudhon, and the independent 19th-century American anarchist tradition. Perhaps you should elaborate on what you find to be in contradiction between anarchism and anti-capitalism in particular (as opposed to "anarchism with adjectives" in general). Until recently, anarcho-capitalism would have been considered so oxymoronic no one would have known what you were talking about; even now, the concept is basically limited to the US.

Anaarchism is flawed anyway. It's based on atheistic moral relativism which is self refuting.


Care to elaborate on that?
