Bhaskar and libertarian socialism

From Bhaskar, R. Dialectic: The Pulse of Freedom (Routledge, 2008):

“Bhaskar’s own work was very much devoted to moving beyond that logic [of late capitalism] […] and remained committed to a (libertarian) form of revolutionary socialism” (xviii).

Here’s more, which sounds a lot like the libertarian socialism of the collaborative commons:

“Actually existing socialism failed in part because it did not deign to consider that the immediate producers and consumers, rather than the party managers, might know best how to tackle, both collectively and through socialized markets, questions of technological innovation, incentive, production, distribution and exchange under socialism” (343).

Speaking of which, a reminder of Joe Corbett’s Libertarian eco-socialism.”
