Argentina gets an anarchist president? Not!

English-language media accounts are calling Argentina's far-right president-elect Javier Milei a "self-described anarcho-capitalist," but this appears to be a translation error. In Episode 203 of the CounterVortex podcast, Bill Weinberg sets the record straight, exposing "anarcho-capitalism" as an oxymoron and the fascistic Milei as antithetical to everything that Argentina's proud anarchist tradition ever stood for.

Correction re. CounterVortex podcast 203

Yes, it is episode 203. Not 202 as is incorrectly stated in the audio.
