-"Syndicalism is a type of economic system proposed as a replacement for capitalism and state socialism which uses federations of collectivized trade unions. It is a form of economic corporatism that advocates interest aggregation of multiple non-competitive categorized units to negotiate and manage an economy.[1] For adherents, labor unions are the potential means of both overcoming economic aristocracy and running society fairly in the interest of the majority, through union democracy. Industry in a syndicalist system would be run through co-operative confederations and mutual aid. Local syndicates would communicate with other syndicates through the Bourse du Travail (labor exchange) which would manage and transfer commodities."

-"In civics, minarchism (sometimes called minimal statism,[1] small government, or limited-government libertarianism.[2]) refers to a political ideology which maintains that the state's only legitimate function is the protection of individuals from aggression, theft, breach of contract and fraud.[2][3] "

The pragmatic mainly applies to the part of of minarchism in where economic regulation is still in place but it is a small assortment of regulations instead of a boatload of unnecessary, restrictive regulations. The blatantly emergent, counter-productive and immoral business practices would be regulated. E.g, environmental regulation. Otherwise, the state would have a minimal involvement in the economic flow of Syndicalism and their social involvement would be non-oppressive and non-restrictive and establishing security and stability along these parameters. I view my take on Syndicalism to be a moralistic distribution of watered-down Capitalism, keeping it's most useful ideals but removing the ultimate capital part of it. Socialistic ideals such as collective-ownership are in place but again I would support a more pragmatic view of it in which some essential values of individualist property rights are retained. You can still own types of property that cannot be stolen, but things like retaining property and restricting others of it would be abolished.
Sorry for DP, but as an edit:

-"You can still own types of property that cannot be stolen, but things like retaining property and restricting others of it would be abolished. "

This is incorrect. I meant that there would be no traditional copyright sense in the form of retaining property after your death.
