Agorist Archives logo consisting of a black circle inside of which is a stylized letter A. The vertical strokes of the A symbolize an iceberg and the horizontal bar of the A depict ocean waves. The image honors both the classical symbol of Anarchy while also symbolizing the counter-economy of the Agora lurking beneath the surface of the government-approved economy. The Agorist Archives

The Agorist Archives, announced on February 23, 2021, is an ongoing effort by KoPubCo to digitize, curate, and preserve the articles, papers, notes, letters, calendars, and recorded speeches of the originator of Counter-Economics and Agorism: Samuel Edward Konkin III (7/8/1947 – 2/23/2004). At KoPubCo, we believe that we can continue to sell collectible originals and photocopies of New Libertarian magazines and books to support this website while making the knowledge — in digital versions of those publications (and far more) — available here.

All through 2022 & 2023, Your Friendly Neighbourhood AnarchoArchivist, Victor Koman, PhD, will be scanning in his collection of Konkiniana. If you would like to learn more about what he plans to do and what treasures SEK3 entrusted to him, check out this video. If you want to support him in his scholarly efforts, use one of the methods below.

You will also find, below, numerous links to files already in our repository. Expect it to evolve, expand, and morph as we add documents, categorize them, and design — in real time — an ever-improving classification. For now, we have a few issues of New Libertarian as well as a scan of the entire two-year run of New Libertarian Weekly, the first and longest-lasting printed-and-mailed libertarian weekly newsletter (101 issues!). We will be breaking each NLW “chunk” into individual issues as soon as we can (and cleaning up the wretched OCR text). Also, we’ve added over a dozen pamphlets and flyers from the early days of several organizations spearheaded by SEK3. For now, take a moment to check out the collection. Some PDFs are fully searchable (again, caveats on the text conversion), some were scanned without that option selected. That oversight will be corrected during the conversion phase.

The filenames use the NL Whole Number designation. SEK3’s first publications (NL Vol. I), Laissez-Faire! 1–5, have been designated NL001–NL005. This initial foray into publishing (while attending University of Wisconsin) was followed by a transfer to NYU and the birth of NYU Libertarian Notes (later, New Libertarian Notes) (Vol. II) 1–38, so those would be NL006–NL043. New Libertarian Weekly (Vol. III), therefore, begins with issue number 1 as NL044 and ends with issue 101 as NL0144. Finally, New Libertarian, the magazine (Vol. IV), begins with issue number 1 as NL145. At that point, with Volume V, things get complicated… Don’t worry. At some point, we will upload an index of all known appearances of SEK3 in print, audio, and video.
