“The Autonomy Of The Law Is Not Inconsistent With Tyranny:” Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin, David Graeber

“Tyranny- defined as the exercise of state power in the private interest.”
Graeber, David: Toward An Anthropological Theory of Value. New York: Palsgrave 2001


“…the autonomy of the law, which is necessary to its legitimacy, is not inconsistent with serving the needs of political and economic power.”

Dezalay and Garth, Dealing In Virtue, pp98. Cited in Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin: The Making Of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy Of American Empire, London, Verso 2012.

Both books are excellent.

We are not Public Figures.
We are Not Here to Persuade.
We have foresworn this. If our conversation does not entertain and amuse us, we are not going to do it. It will be no fun. So it had better be funny. It is funny. You may not think some of it funny, but it is.
We are Not Here to Be Persuaded.
Non Est Disputandum. Generally, when someone would like to persuade us and we are determined to be funny, they don’t like it much anyway. If you would like to persuade, get your own website. If you are funny, let’s dance.
