Left anarchism or left-wing anarchismTemplate:Ref label refers to forms of anarchism that are seen by some on the 'left of politics'. It posits a future society in which property does not exist and is replaced by reciprocity and non-hierarchical society. Left-wing anarchism is thus distinguished from free-market anarchism or "right-wing" anarchism (such as that of Murray Rothbard).
Ulrike Heider,Template:Ref label who claims to be syndicalist, in Anarchism: Left, Right and Green categorizes anarchism into left anarchism, right anarchism (anarcho-capitalism), and green anarchism.Template:page number Left-wing anarchism has been visible in anti-globalization protests, such as in Seattle in 1999 against the World Trade Organization. Paul Thagard argues that "left-wing anarchist" societies can only survive in small groups. He claims that in a large society, "in order to facilitate freedom, flourishing, and fairness, having some form of government is preferable to having no state at all."
I.Template:Note label Left anarchism is sometimes used synonymously with libertarian socialism, left libertarianism, communitarian anarchism, or socialist anarchism.
II.Template:Note label Heider's work has been strongly criticised by anarchist academics including Bryan Caplan and Murray Bookchin for the allegedly poor quality of its research and presentation.
