.@davidwengrow just came up with the perfect title for our new book on prehistory – “We Have Never Been Stupid”  (must say it here because they’ll never let us use it.)


adding page while reading this from Shoshana Zuboff‘s age of surveillance capitalism:


we now have the tools to grasp the collision in all of its destructive complexity: wha tis unbearable is that economic and social ineq’s have reverted to the preindustrial ‘feudal’ pattern but that we, the people, have not.. we are not illiterate peasants, serfs, or slaves

but according to david and david.. we were never stupid
