Libertarian socialism (sometimes called social anarchism, left-libertarianism and socialist libertarianism) is a group of political philosophies within the socialist movement that reject the view of socialism as state ownership or command of the means of production within a more general criticism of the state form itself as well as of wage labour relationships within the workplace. Instead it emphasizes workers' self-management of the workplace and decentralized structures of political government asserting that a society based on freedom and equality can be achieved through abolishing authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite. Libertarian socialists generally place their hopes in decentralized means of direct democracy and federal or confederal associations such as libertarian municipalism, citizens' assemblies, trade unions, and workers' councils. All of this is generally done within a general call for libertarian and voluntary human relationships through the identification, criticism, and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of life.
If you notice, I'm no longer arguing with you, I'm ridiculing you for the clueless numbskull you seem intent on being.
Daskakik: The existance of bigger governments is the result of Libertarian failures.
ThirdEyeofHorus: What, because laissez faire didn't take care of all the people cradle to grave????
Daskakik: No, because it doesn't exist.
ThirdEyeofHorus: Progressives and monopolistic corporations have seen to it
Daskakik: How is that not failing?

As said, anti-intellectual ... and its corollary, anti-science.
You prove the point perfectly.
