Liberale et Libertaire

"In France, you could loosely define three libertarian wings that would emerge: capitalist (Bastiat), Socialist (Proudhon), and Communist (Dejacque). But libertarianism exported to greater Europe would become more or less solely identified what today we would call left-wing anarchism, meaning anti-property, anti-market, anti-bourgeois. It’s not difficult to see why this probably occurred. Liberal enlightenment drew a distinction between the State, which was force bound by a social contract, and civil society, which was a product of (traditional) anarchic spontaneous order."
