Kevin Carson - New LA Pamphlet on Contract Feudalism
- Dear All,
My last posting of the month.
Further Thoughts about "Contract Feudalism": A Response to Paul Marks
The Libertarian Alliance was kind enough, in 2006, to publish my pamphlet
Contract Feudalism: A Critique of Employer Power over Employees.1 Since
then, Paul Marks, a Conservative councillor on Kettering Borough Council,
has taken the trouble to reply to it with a pamphlet of his own: A
Critique of a Critique: An Examination of Kevin Carson's Contract
As grateful as I am for the attention, I hesitate to undertake a
response. Mr Marks' effort has been lionized in the libertarian
blogosphere. For example, Stephan Kinsella of Mises Blog calls it "a
brilliant, solid, and interesting analysis" of my pamphlet,3 and Perry De
Havilland of Samizdata praises Mr Marks for being "in splendid and
splenic form."4 One of the commenters at Samizdata dismisses me as a
"yapping Pomeranian" in comparison to Mr Marks' "English mastiff."
Nevertheless, even though I take my life into my own hands in confronting
this formidable mastiff, I feel I owe him some sort of response as a
matter of courtesy....
