The Utopia of Rules – David Graeber

Have you ever thought you could just stop making capitalism? Or that bureaucracy is actually just the threat of violence? That everything is built on the threat of violence? Or that play is in fact chaos and games are a reflection of our love of rules, a way to keep chaos at bay?

Some really interesting thoughts here as usual by Graeber. He was a big thinker with a depth of knowledge about a lot of thing you wouldn’t normally connect.

At the end you even get an essay on superheros and Batman as reflection of and cheerleader to the violent police state.
