Positive Anarchism and Cultural Entrepreneurship

I believe that the cultural entrepreneurship of liberty-minded individuals and organizations should be concentrated mainly on promoting and developing a "positive" kind of anarchism, which is not defined primarily in terms of what it opposes (institutionalized aggression, coercive collectivism, mental slavery, etc.), but in terms of what it stands for (competitive institutional entrepreneurship, peaceful global cooperation, voluntary organizational diversity, etc.).

This way the message of individual liberty can fully demonstrate its philosophical value while avoiding being poisoned and embittered by the inherently aggressive and antagonistic influence of statism. It does not mean that there is a dearth of situations in which the insanity and inhumanity of statism should be attacked with full force, but it does mean that focusing primarily on looking for such situations is psychologically draining and potentially destructive of one's intellectual morale, hence ultimately becoming counterproductive.
