Benjamin Tucker, Liberty, and Individualist Anarchism
By Wendy McElroy
This article appeared in the Winter 1998 issue of The Independent Review

From 1881 to 1908, Tucker’s lively periodical, Liberty, was the main conduit of anti-collectivist radicalism in America. Although Liberty left no visible mark on the political culture at large, the debates it published between natural-rights advocates and subjectivist egoists anticipated some common themes of later individualist thought.
