So David Graeber, anarchist anthropologist, has published an essay about the current moment of crisis in capitalism. You can read it here.

It’s an interesting piece. The main idea is that peoples’ imaginations have been impoverished by capitalism, leaving us unable to imagine a different kind of social order. Graeber is optimistic that the crisis will create an opening for new kinds of thinking, leading to the construction of planetary alternatives to capitalism.

Let’s hope he’s right.
