#50B LEFT ANARCHIST 

My brand of libertarianism abolishes the state altogether, and abandons or vastly reduces private property rights. It values egalitarianismempowering the powerless and order. It replaces government with free associations.   Co-ops and communes would be key units in this ideal way to organize society I imagine. (Note: Left anarchism comes in different forms. One is collectivist anarchism where means of production are collectively owned and managed by producers themselves with labor-based compensation; another emphasizes need-based distribution.)
