This episode, a range of voices on the topic of wage slavery. In our first hour, a Wendell Berry reading, The Ecological Crisis as A Crisis of Character, a short video on fiat money, and A Brief History of Plutocracy by Robin Upton. In hour 2, the soundtrack of a video parable about big government, followed by continued reading of David Graeber's Debt, The First 5000 Years.
We start the show by reading chapter 2 of Wendell Berry's The Unsettling of America. His broad social critique addresses issues such as the disabling impact of professionalisation and the perverseness of organisations which are centred around money. Next, a short video clip about Fiat money, which serves as introduction to the soundtrack of Robin Upton's presentation to the 28th Chaos Communications Congress on the History of Plutocracy, tracing the origins of the plutocractic class, highlighting the Rothschild Formula we looked at in episode 577 and how the super rich have used the organs of the state to try to cement their control.
In our second hour, we hear the soundtrack of Freetopia, a video parable by Mike Adams, about citizens' urgent need to resist big government, especially in areas such as health. We conclude the show by returning to the David Graeber reading on the history of slavery.
