short note on 'Anarcho-Socialism' | 'Anarcho-Socialism' Definition, history | BPSC 105 assignment Solotion

 Libertarian socialism, also referred to as anarcho-socialism, anarchist socialism, free socialism,  stateless socialism, socialist anarchism and socialist libertarianism, is an anti-authoritarian, anti-statist and libertarian political philosophy within the socialist movement which rejects the state socialist  conception of socialism as a statist form where the state retains centralized control of the economy. 

Overlapping with anarchism and libertarianism, libertarian socialists criticize wage slavery  relationships within the workplace, emphasizing workers' self-management and decentralized  structures of political organization. As a broad socialist tradition and movement, libertarian socialism  includes anarchist, Marxist and anarchist or Marxist-inspired thought as well as other left-libertarian  tendencies. Anarchism and libertarian Marxism are the main currents of libertarian socialism. Libertarian socialism generally rejects the concept of a state and asserts that a society based on freedom and justice can only be achieved with the abolition of 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 citizens'/popular assemblies, cooperatives, libertarian municipalism, trade unions and workers' councils. This is done within a general call for liberty and  free association through the identification, criticism and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority  in all aspects of human life. Libertarian socialism is distinguished from the authoritarian and vanguardist approach of Bolshevism/Leninism and the reformism of Fabianism/social democracy.

A form and socialist wing of left-libertarianism, past and present currents and movements commonly described as libertarian socialist include anarchism (especially anarchist schools of thought such as  anarcho-communism, anarcho-syndicalism, collectivist anarchism, green anarchism, individualist  anarchism, mutualism and social anarchism) as well as communalism, some forms of democratic socialism, guild socialism, libertarian Marxism (autonomism, council communism, left communism  and Luxemburgism, among others), participism, revolutionary syndicalism and some versions of  utopian socialism
