  Individualist anarchism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Individualist anarchism is a philosophical tradition that opposes collectivism and has a particularly strong emphasis on the supremacy and autonomy of the individual.
Individualist anarchism's roots includes Europeans such as William Godwin, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, and Max Stirner (who is also connected to the existentialist philosophy), though the individualist anarchist tradition draws heavily on American independent thinkers, including Josiah Warren, Benjamin Tucker, Lysander Spooner, Ezra Heywood, Stephen Pearl Andrews, and Henry David Thoreau.
Individualist anarchism is often seen as a form of liberalism, and hence, has been called "liberal anarchism" [1].

Individualist Anarchism sees the exploitation of certain groups or classes as the visible symptom of a deeper problem whose root cause is coercive monopoly.
While individualist libertarians have been clear for over a century that liberty must mean freedom from coercion, they have not always been successful in demonstrating the critical distinction between coercion and exploitation, which can be seen as the central evil for all stripes of leftists.
Individualist anarchism doesn't seem to be a good fit with the other building blocks of libertarianism for the simple reason that its proponents -- like most 19th century radicals -- embraced a labor theory of value and rejected capitalism.

 G.1 Are individualist anarchists anti-capitalist?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)

 The Individualist Sentiment, by Pierre Lemieux
Although it seems safe to assume that the individualist sentiment, the theory of individualism, and the experience of living in a society based on such theory, are mutually reinforcing, the relations between these kinds of individualism are not always straightforward.
In an individualist political system, individuals are free to organize their lives according to non-individualist values (this is much less true, mutatis mutandis, in a socialist system); and, to make an understatement, some individualists are not lucky enough to live in individualist societies.
Similarly, a sentimental individualist will normally believe in political individualism, except perhaps if he holds the "aristocratic-individualist" view that only a chosen few are able to look after their own welfare; even then, though, he may want to hedge his bets lest he would, under a different system, be considered not part of them.

 20th WCP: Social Externalism and Non-Empirical Errors
This leaves the individualist a second option; she can deny that reference is socially determined and reject the conclusions of the anti-individualist thought experiments put forth by Putnam and Burge.
For this reason individualists have typically focused their attention on the first step, arguing that the speaker does not make a mistake but, instead, has his own concept of arthritis and therefore expresses a true belief.
Instead, the individualist should simply insist that deviances of this type show not that the individual has an incomplete understanding of the community concept, but that she has no understanding of it at all and, consequently, cannot be attributed the standard concept.

 Murray N. Rothbard / Frank Chodorov: Individualist
Both events mark the end of an era to be mourned by every individualist, by every one of us whose lives were illumined and brightened by the radiance of Frank's noble individualism of mind and spirit.
For he was always conscious of the fact that he wrote and spoke to a Remnant, to a small band of individualists who would eagerly imbibe the articulation of their own deepest yearnings.
Frank was firmly convinced, though it was obviously a sentiment that he could not prove, that people were either born individualists or they were not, and hence it would be impossible to generate a mass movement of libertarians by any sort of short-cut demagoguery.

Individualist anarchism was itself reduced to an agitprop journalistic enterprise of some measurable popularity.[12] And in this form it found its most eloquent voice with Benjamin Tucker and his magazine Liberty.
On the other hand, individualist anarchism also persisted within the United States because it had the support of a different (more established, middle class, and formally educated) audience that represented the earlier stream of indigenous North American radicalism reflecting this region's unique, and rapidly fading, decentralized economic development.
Although individualist and communist anarchy are fundamentally one and the same doctrine, their respective supporters still ended up at loggerheads over tactical differences.[14] But in any event, the clash between the two variants was ultimately resolved by factors beyond their control.

 Individualism Reconsidered
The individualist views people as responsible agents who, even in present-day, unfree society, have to take at least partial responsibility for the situations in which they find themselves, and therefore are capable of changing their situation, at least in part.
Individualists also think, however, that people should be free to live in communist, syndicalist, capitalist, or any other kinds of communities they choose, as long as they do not coerce others into participating in these societies against their will.
In short, individualists feel that a society in which non-invasive people are free to choose in all areas of their lives, unregulated by any state or community, will best serve the needs and desires of individual human beings.

 Introduction to Individualist Feminism Part Two
Remember that the key concept of individualist feminism is 'self-ownership' -- the moral jurisdiction that every human being has over his or her own body and the products of his or her labor (property).
Indeed, one of the reasons feminist history has ignored many individualist feminists may be due to the fact that some of the most prominent ones are men.
And, when these two traditions are grouped together under one label, the individualists tend to be silenced because their voices are in minority.

Because an individualist meta-context does not have rights as something which are dependent on The State.
In your case, I don't know if "social individualist" is philologically appropriate; Burke might agree with the concept, but it puts you more in the conservative tradition, than the pr()no and pot tradition.
