Freedom vs. the corporate state

The only political system which supports genuine freedom is libertarian socialism.

From Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_socialism:

Libertarian socialism (a.k.a. anarchism, socialist libertarianism and left-libertarianism) is a group of anti-authoritarian political philosophies inside the socialist movement that rejects socialism as centralized state ownership and control of the economy, as well as the state itself.

It emphasizes workers’ self-management of the workplace and decentralized structures of political organization.

It asserts that a society based on freedom and justice can be achieved through abolishing authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite.

Libertarian socialists advocate for decentralized structures based on direct democracy and federal or confederal associations such as libertarian municipalism, citizens’ assemblies, trade unions, and workers’ councils.

All of this is generally done within a general call for libertarian and voluntary human relationships through the identification, criticism, and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of human life.  

They propose that this economic system be executed in a manner that attempts to maximize the liberty of individuals (libertarianism) and minimize concentration of power or authority (fascism, corporate capitalism, communism).

The words “libertarianism” and “socialism” were originally synonymous in nineteenth-century Europe.   “Libertarian socialism”, as a single term, has the same meaning as “anarchism”.  Today, most people associate the word “libertarian” with the naively capitalist version of semi-libertarianism that arose in the twentieth-century United States.

True libertarian socialism, or anarchism, is clearly a political ideal, requiring a high-quality majority population to make it work.  Unfortunately, such a majority does not exist at this degraded stage of human evolution.  History has proven that it is not possible to implement libertarian socialism at a national, regional or even municipal level.   No majority populations are sufficiently conscious, rational and moral to make it happen.  And even if there were such populations, they would be quickly destroyed from the outside by heavily militarized, plutocratic nations which know that liberated people will put an end to their diabolical systems.

Therefore, human liberation will be a result only of human awakening and evolution.  It will never be granted by any hierarchy, nor seized by any unconscious, egocentric population.
