Anarcho-socialism, commonly known as social anarchism or other similar variations, is an extremely lose term that applies to at least two majors variations of Anarchism. One of these branches advocates a collectivist society combining the fundamental principles of Socialism and Anarchism, whilst the other advocates an individualist system with heavy emphasis on human liberty.

Theories

It is largely regarded as referring to any anarchist system that places emphasis on community cooperation and mutual development, even if such a society still has individualist tenancies.

The theory rejects private property, seeing it as a source of social inequality. Anarcho-socialism is used to specifically describe tendencies within anarchism that have an emphasis on the communitarian and cooperative aspects of anarchist theory and practice. Social anarchism includes (but is not limited to) anarcho-collectivism, anarcho-communism and anarcho-syndicalism.

Anarcho-socialism in micronationalism

Micronationally, any social anarchist state is likely to be anarcho-communist due to the simplicity of most micronational societies.
