72. There have been bases for such systems in the past.
Going back to Josiah Warren in the US (actually even further), and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (in France) who developed Mutualism after the Mutuellistes of Lyon who took over their workplaces. Participatory Economics (PARECON) is based on Mutualism - which is libertarian socialism, or anarchism, if you will. Karl Marx was an early admirer of Proudhon, and even "lifted" his scientific socialism from him before turning on him due to ambition.

Proudhon wrote "The Philosophy of Poverty" while Marx, in his straw man sarcasm of Proudhon wrote "The Poverty of Philosophy."
