Its a pretty good chaser to the coming insurrection.
The notes on the commune and messianic time are much appreciated lol
How is this book? Kinda wince at "governing" but have been wanting to see what the fuss is about


very good so far, debunks the "tragedy of the commons" with actual evidence rather than rethoric or appeals to people's good nature.

"Analysts who find an empirical situation with a structure presumed to be a
commons dilemma often call for the imposition of a solution by an external
actor: The “only way” to solve a commons dilemma is by doing X. Underlying
such a claim is the belief that X is necessary and sufficient to solve the commons
dilemma. But the content of X could hardly be more variable. One set of
advocates presumes that a central authority must assume continuing
responsibility to make unitary decisions for a particular resource. The other
presumes that a central authority should parcel out ownership rights to the
resource and then allow individuals to pursue their own self-interests within a set
of well-defined property· rights. Both centralization advocates and privatization
advocates accept as a central tenet that institutional change must come from
outside and be imposed on the individuals affected. Despite sharing a faith in the
necessity and efficacy of “the state” to change institutions so as to increase
efficiency, the institutional changes they recommend could hardly be further


Sounds like a another academic claptrap reformulation of same-old reformist. Very boring.


assuming you're talking about "governing the commons"

there's academia as centralizing and networking of knowledge and academia as the grift of grifts, this one is of the former and directly criticizes and exposes modes of exchange and relation that aren't mediated by state or firm intervention
it doesn't advocate for reform but shits all over the very idea that reforms alone are the thing that pushes economic formations to take the most efficient form and that deliberative and directly democratic/localised structures are most efficient to handle stuff

aka people know how to handle their own shit, they don't need daddy to rub their belly and wipe their ass for them
