Benjamin Tucker, Liberty, and Individualist Anarchism
By Wendy McElroy
This article appeared in the Winter 1997/98 issue of The Independent Review.
From 1881 to 1908, Tuckers 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.
