The Liberty Debate on Participation in Politics
By Wendy McElroy
This article appeared in the Winter 2000 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Should political activists work within corrupt institutions in order to reform them, or should they try to affect social change only by working outside “the system”? Nineteenth century individualist Benjamin Tucker advocated the latter strategy, insisting that social harmony could not be achieved by cooperating with coercers.
