graeber care/free law

you take care of a child so the child can go and play.. that’s what children actually do when you take care of them.. play and freedom are ultimately the same thingdavid graeber


from david on care and freedom:

41 min – what we do as human beings is we take care of each other.. but care.. which is something we don’t often recognize.. is closely related to the notion of freedom..t because.. normally care is defined as answering to other people’s needs and certainly that is an important element of it.. but it’s not just that.. if you’re in a prison they take care of the needs of the prisoners.. usually at least.. but you can’t really think of a prison as caring for it’s prisoners.. it’s more than that.. so why isn’t a prison a care giving institutions whereas something else might be

if you think about care.. the paradigm for caring relations is a mother and a child.. mother takes care of child so that child can grow.. be healthy.. flourish.. but at the immediate level.. you take care of a child so the child can go and play.. that’s what children actually do when you take care of them..t

So why not make that the paradigm for an economy too, which is after all just the means whereby human beings provide for one another. Not least because care and freedom are infinitely expandable without destroying the planet, while production and consumption are not.. t

nika a bit earlier (p 41 ch 11) in anarchy in manner: ‘care is limitless resource‘ and assia: ‘we are finding ourselves in this crisis because of the way we’ve framed our reality is dependent on resources, which are the finite ones..’

Original Tweet:

..I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free
