A Statement from the Anarchist News Collective

We are all Anarcho-capitalists now

After spending many hours on Facebook and Reddit debating with anarcho-capitalists about the meaning of "anarchism", we have decided as a collective that Anarchist News is now to officially become an anarcho-capitalist project.

We as a collective have realized that after all these years of considering ourselves to be "anarchist", we have never really had an understanding of economics. After forming a study group designed to examine the work of the Austrian economists, and the work of Ludwig von Mises in particular, we have come to realize the errors in our thinking.

The purpose of our project is to promote rational thinking, to encourage rational argument, and we realize that we have failed in that mission. We have come to realize that the institution of property is to be defended at all costs, and that freedom can not exist without property. We therefore apologize for posting articles in the past that did not respect this fundamental cornerstone for anarchism.

Henceforth, we now are going to commit ourselves to posting articles that promote entrepreneurship, an understanding of the European Enlightenment tradition and an awareness of the detrimental effects of government intervention.

We will also commit ourselves to posting random conspiracy theory articles that happen to support our biases.

SMASH THE STATE AND LONG LIVE ANARCHY!!!
