_________

from doe – david w astra:

a: there’s a way in which the private/public sphere.. a lot of tricky things happen.. the slippage

d: this is really crucial.. once you’ve done away w the big myths.. of what caused ineq (not farming, not big cities).. left with the most insidious form of soci ineq take root on small scale.. family, gender, generations.. and when those become entrenched and scaled up.. ie: modeled on patriarchal households.. question becomes.. how/when did this happen.. even posing question if there are alts gets you in hot water rather quickly.. t

d: so think about patriarchy where you are trapped and movement isn’t an option.. i’ll read from book that touches on this

d: (reading): one of david’s fav bits.. from conclusion: ‘if particular story we should be telling/asking.. how did we find ourselves stuck in just one form of social reality.. and how did relations based on violence become normalized in it.. closest to it.. steiner.. polymath.. et al.. legend has it he completed 800 pgs on slavery only to have briefcase w notes stolen on train.. very unlucky man.. shorter version of his work.. pre-servile institutions.. a study of what happens in diff cultural/historical situations to people who become unmoored.. runaways/refugees.. first welcomed.. treated as sacred beings.. then become degraded.. so collapse of first basic freedom.. and how this paved way for loss of 2nd .. freedom to disobey.. what happened steiner asked .. when expectations that make freedom possible.. where ie: shelter et al.. erode.. (skipping to end).. others made points.. slave/women as servile.. to now et al..

Beginning with, powers welcomed widows and orphans, refugees and the homeless, housed them, usually in the temple or the royal palace and nourished them. But when times of hardship came, such as war, they were put to work. 2/

This is how workhouses came into being. And if slaves were suddenly captured during the war, they were also sent to workhouses. Refugees and the weak in general are usually loved and protected at first, but then the power dynamics change everything. 3/

As we all know: war and violence are never good solutions.
