Jean Lievens: David Graeber on Predatory Bureaucratization

The era of predatory bureaucratization – An interview with David Graeber

David Graeber is an anthropologist and a well-known anarchist figure. He was one of the initiators of the Occupy movement in 2011. He is the author of a major essay, Debt, the First 5,000 Years. I met him in Paris for the release of his latest book, The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity, and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy.

EXTRACT

…social movements are not about seizing power right away: it’s about changing the way we think about politics.

…feudalism. That’s what we have today: a fusion of public and private bureaucracies whose purpose is to create more and more debt that will then be the object of various forms of speculation.
