ultimate revolutionary question
this is the ultimate revolutionary question: what are the conditions that would have to exist to enable us to do this.. to just wake up and imagine and produce something else? – david graeber
from david graeber‘s utopia of rules backwards:
john holloway (marxist philosopher) wanted to title a book ‘stop making capitalism’.. he noted.. capitalism is not something imposed on us by some outside force.. it only exists because every day we wake up and continue to produce it.. if we woke up one morning and all collectively decided to produce something else, then we wouldn’t have capitalism anymore.. this is the ultimate revolutionary question: what are the conditions that would have to exist to enable us to do this.. to just wake up and imagine and produce something else?
we’d need to org around.. legit needs..
ie: a nother way

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..
what the world needs most is the energy of 8b alive people
ie: 2 convers as infra to undo our hierarchical listening
