In A Structured Anarchism, John Griffin argues that an anarchist communist society, while a desirable goal in the distant future, is not practical in the short-term. This is because 1) people accustomed to a capitalist society aren't culturally prepared for it, and 2) the modern economy is too complicated to organize without the "self-regulation" of a market system. Therefore Griffin calls for a series of short term compromises to be made with classical liberal economics, and dubs this "collectivist anarchism."
