    Mutualism, also called Proudhonism or Anarcho-Mutualism (AnMut), is an economically left-wing (but pro-market), Anarchist and culturally variable ideology primarily based upon the writings of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon.

    He advocates for a socialist system based on a free market economy and usufructs, the introduction of a mutual credit bank, ownership of the means of production by either the workers collectively or by the individual(s) using them, and the representation of trade by equal amounts of labour in the free market.

    Additionally, he is strongly in favour of individual liberty and can be seen as the unifying ideology between the social, individualist, and market schools of anarchist thought, and was highly influential in the development of other anarchist ideologies that came after it.


    In a general sense, mutualism can be considered the original anarchy since the mutualist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon was the first person to identify himself as an anarchist.

    According to A Mutualist FAQ, mutualism was "the original form taken by the labor movement, first in Great Britain and shortly thereafter in France and the rest of Western Europe. Both mutualist practice and theory arose as part of the broad current of working class radicalism in England, from around the time of the publication of Paine's Rights of Man and the organisation of the first Societies of Correspondence in the 1790s, to the Chartist movement. Mutualism existed for some time as a spontaneous working class practice before it was formalised in theory."

    Personality and Behaviour

    Mutualism is known to reject traditional currency, instead proposing an alternative system based upon "labour notes", which is sometimes used as a running joke. He often attempts to unify the left and right anarchists through his proposed mix of socialism and a market economy, to varying degrees of success. Sometimes, his relative obscurity is played upon in comics ("what actually is mutualism?").

    While he does not have strong established cultural views and leans progressive like his fellow anarchists, he has had a history of occasionally making sexist or anti-Semitic remarks, much to the dismay of his friends (this being a reference to certain views espoused by Proudhon himself).

    However, he seems somewhat ashamed of these past mistakes, having been heard saying "my ideal society would have sent me to the guillotine for being too conservative".

    4. Add the eyes and you're done!
    5. (Optional) Draw, in the centre of the ball, two curved arrows which form a circle; an orange one in the black section and a black one in the orange section.
