With all this talk lately of "left libertarianism" being equated to Johnson's worldview, I think it would do all some good to get acquainted with what the philosophical anti-state/libertarian left actually has to say. I suspect much of the readership here leans more ancap when they think "freed market" than "left libertarian" but I also suspect that's because many Paul supporters began their journey into free market economics through the austrian tradition and have come to think of "left libertarian" as Johnsonism or some media propogated statist SJW slant, which is not at all the heart of the tradition of the "individualists" or "mutualists" as they contrast to the "ancaps". The policy distinctions between individualists and ancaps are fairly minor; the greater difference is in what they believe "might happen" in the absence of state.
If your only exposure to "left libertarianism" is from the media, you might be surprised to find modern writings of the stateless left, in the tradition of Benjamin Tucker and Proudhan, are not calling for mandatory injections of experimental biological agents tainted with heavy metals, trade agreements globalizing crony capitalist monopoly powers, nor forced-labor ****-nazi cake-baking camps for the Jews. Who would have thunk?
If you've read von Mises' Human Action and you're curious as to how a left anarchist worldview contrasts in its view of a "freed market" and its consequences, Carson's Organization Theory is a great read.
