 ANARCHISM.net / forum - Benjamin Tucker: "Anarcho"-capitalist or Anarchist?
Benjamin Tucker was against "capitalism" in the sense in which he defined it: namely, as a state-supported monopoly of social capital (tools, machinery, etc.) which allows owners to avoid paying workers the full value of their labour [see Instead of a Book].
Tucker himself pointed this out when he argued that Proudhon (like himself) "would individualise and associate" workplaces by mutualism, which would "place the means of production within the reach of all." [quoted by Martin, Op.
For, since Tucker saw his system as eliminating the ability of capitalists to maintain exploitative monopolies over the means of production, it is therefore true by definition that he advocated the elimination of "private property" in the capitalist sense.

 G.5 Benjamin Tucker: Capitalist or Anarchist?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Tucker believed that under mutual banking, capitalists' ability to extract surplus value from workers in return for the use of tools, machinery, etc. would be eliminated because workers would be able to obtain zero-interest credit and use it to buy their own instruments of production instead of "renting" them, as it were, from capitalists.
Tucker's ideal society was one of small entrepreneurs, farmers, artisans, independent contractors and co-operative associations based around a network of mutual banks.
This fact is overlooked by "anarcho"-capitalists who, in seeking to make Tucker one of their "founding fathers," point to the fact that he spoke of the advantages of owning "property." But it is apparent that by "property" he was referring to simple "possession" of land, tools, etc.

Though not directly examples of coercion (or "invasion" as Tucker preferred to say), they were nevertheless artificially-inflated by the state-sponsored banking monopoly, which was in turn maintained through force.
Any such state-sponsored interest and profit, Tucker called usury and he saw it as the basis for the oppression of labor.

 Benjamin Tucker -- Anarchy Archives   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
An individualist Anarchist, Tucker (1854Ð1939) was a person of intellect rather than of action, focusing on the development of his ideas and on the publication of books and journals, especially the journal Liberty: Not the Daughter but the Mother of Order (1881Ð1908).
Tucker summarized his philosophy by stating, ãThe Anarchists are simply unterrified Jeffersonian Democrats.
They believe that 'the best government is that which governs least,' and that which governs least is no government at all.ä Besides publishing the writings of the leading individualist anarchists and many other radicals, Liberty was probably the earliest American magazine to publish Nietzsche and George Bernard Shaw.

 BlackCrayon.com: People: Benjamin Tucker
If mankind is ever to realize justice in its actual social relations, the notion that the individual citizen has a moral obligation to the State must be completely abandoned.
We anarchists, Tucker proclaimed, "look upon all obligations, not as moral, but as social, and even then not really as obligations except as these have been consciously and voluntarily assumed." And this means nothing less than that the State, which is to say formal government itself, must be discarded as an instrument of social control.

The storm was so violent that my father could not get his sleigh out of the barn to go for the doctor and he had to tramp through the drifts for a considerable distance.
Nevertheless I may say that Tucker was an extremely common name in Dartmouth, and that a society now exists in that neighborhood for the special investigation of the Tucker genealogy.
