Die "Neue Linke" als Geburtshelferin

Interessante These auf dem Blog Libérale et Libertaire:
"At the turn of the 20th century, libertarianism, i.e, 'individualist or liberal anarchism' was a minority subset(more of an intellectual movement) compared to the population of left, 'social anarchism (more of a labor movement)'. However, even libertarianism was anti-capitalist. But Corporate Liberal consolidation essentially subsumed the 'social anarchist' movement (i.e., labor) and beat the remnant of the libertarian movement like a pathetic, yelping dog over to the capitalist side.
In 1926, Benjamin Tucker, in a postscript to his original 'State Socialism and Anarchism' essay, argued for an educational propagation of a libertarian remnant to allow the possibility of a future movement to gain political power to execute a massive redistribution of political power to break the monopoly trusts. But Tucker’s libertarian remnant would not survive. Instead, 'the remnant' would survive via the so-called 'Old Right', which was a network of businessmen, journalists and the refuge from the crumbled regime of Bourbon Democrats. Tucker’s 'radical political redistribution objective' would be supplanted by an objective for the revival of 'Lockean liberalism', which would entail the restoration of the 'social contract' along Lockean terms, and not the outright abolition of all political authority, which is what libertarianism proper demanded.
The New Left Critique against Corporate Liberalism that emerged in the context of the political radicalism of the 1960s was an academic critique. But there was no 'civil society' of labor, a 'remnant' so to speak, that could actually take advantage of it and run with it. The 'new' social anarchism of the counter-culture communes was no match for the realities of latter-half 20th century Global Corporate Capitalism. Libertarianism was the only radical framework that had built up a 'civil society', or a 'market', that could take the New Left Critique and run with it in the context of 20th century Global Corporate Capitalism.
The reality is that the New Left inadvertently played an important hand in spawning 'anarcho-capitalism', the capitalist version of individual anarchism in the late 20th century-early 21st century America."

Könnte man dementsprechend sagen, dass die Left Libertarians weniger eine "zentristische", vermittelnde Position zwischen "Sozialanarchismus" (i.e. Anarchosyndikalismus, libertärer Kommunismus) und "Anarchokapitalismus" einnehmen, als vielmehr den Versuch einer Restauration der Tuckerschen Spielart eines Anarchismus, der sich gleichermaßen als individualistisch/liberal und als "antikapitalistisch" (also gegen die gegenwärtige Wirtschaftsordnung gerichtet) verstand, darstellen?
