Other Libertarian Socialist Tendencies

Utopian Socialism

Utopianism Logo: A red modified star with a blue filigree eye design over it, enclosed in a blue and red circle Utopian socialism is the presentation of visions and outlines for imaginary or futuristic ideal societies, with positive ideals being the main reason for moving society in such a direction. Utopian socialists generally do not believe any form of class struggle is necessary for socialism to emerge, instead that people of all classes can voluntarily adopt their plan for society if it is presented convincingly. They feel their form of cooperative socialism can be established among like-minded people within the existing society and that their small communities can demonstrate the feasibility of their plan for society.

Guild Socialism

Guild Socialism Logo: A red star with a grey gear along its top 3 points, stamped on a brown shield Guild socialism is a political movement advocating workers' control of industry through the medium of trade-related guilds “in an implied contractual relationship with the public”. Guilds would not confine their demands to matters of wages and conditions but would seek to obtain control of industry for the workers whom they represented. Ultimately, industrial guilds would serve as the organs through which industry would be organised in a future socialist society.

Inclusive Democracy

Inclusive Democracy Logo: Blue and red hands shaking in the centre of a black circle. The circle has differently colored spokes radiating out from it, which are in turn enclosed in an outer circle with two arrows pointing inwards Inclusive Democracy is a project that aims for direct democracy; economic democracy in a stateless, moneyless and marketless economy; democracy in the social realm through self-management; and ecological democracy.


Participism Logo: Four interlocking solid circles in different colors: black, pink, green, and red. Participism consists of two independently created economic and political systems: participatory economics or “parecon” and participatory politics or “parpolity”. Participism envisions remaking all of human society from the bottom up according to principles of direct participatory democracy and replacing economic and social competition with cooperation. Supporters of what is termed a “participatory society” support the eventual dissolution of the centralized state, markets, and money.
