Listened to your recent discussion on Hegel's dialectic of the master and the slave, and agreed with much of your analysis. That said, how come most of us would rather be the master in that situation? You touched on it: the master has the man with the gun (a policeman or soldier) on his side. So two points: (1) How, really, can one fight that (ultimate) thread? (2) What might David Graeber's (author of Debt: The First 5000 Years) thoughts be in context of your work? Actually, really only one point: why not discuss these issues with David? (Also see his other book: The Democracy Project.) Just a suggestion, of course.
Official response from Richard Wolff submitted
No problem about discussing issues with Graeber. Just a matter of organizing and scheduling.
Do you like this suggestion?
