f & b & dm same law

i finally came to the conclusion that financialization and bureaucratization and decision-making are the same thing

my variation/edit/add-on to graeber f & b same law: i finally came to the conclusion that financialization and bureaucratization are the same thing


adding page just after reading fragments of an anarchist anthropology and adding david on consensus where he talks about the diff between consensus decision making and voting decision making..

i don’t see a diff between consensus and voting (decision making).. in regard to the need (they both have) for some form of violence.. to coerce a choice from some assumed finite set of choices.. public consensus always oppresses someone(s)

am thinking that any time we think we need some formal apparatus for decision making.. maybe we just need a reset.. maybe we just have the wrong people together in a space

i think what the world.. (every one) .. craves is that we listen deeper.. for the itch-in-the-soul

and i think if we focus on curiosity over decision making.. we’ll get that deep

we keep missing it because we keep thinking we need the purpose/project/problem/gathering/consensus/finite set of choices.. first.. when what we need first/foremost is the energy of 8b alive people (aka: fittingness)

imagine if we just focused on listening to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..


moxie on democracy – yay
