Individualist anarchist[edit]

Could someone provide a citation which establishes Wolff as part of the individualist tradition? I have yet to read his work so I cannot do it myself (Assuming his work is "individualist"). In a blog post titled, "The Thought of Karl Marx Part Fourteen", he calls himself a Marxist:

"The simple truth, as true now as it was when Marx first advanced it, is that capitalism rests upon exploitation. That is why, on this blog and elsewhere, I call myself a Marxist."

Taking into account the above, along with the fact that his book is titled "In Defense of Anarchism", I'd be inclined to label him a libertarian socialist/Social Anarchist and/or libertarian Marxist. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Univearth (talkcontribs) 21:10, 6 February 2011 (UTC)


Edit: My mistake, I should have read the article better. Nevertheless, I think his self-ascribed Marxism should be taken into consideration. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Univearth (talkcontribs) 21:17, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
