    I just received my copy of “The Dawn of Everything” by David Graeber and David Wengrow. I started out with chapter 10, “Why the State has No Origin”. It is going to take a while to fully digest the material. Interestingly, I ran across a very new publication that talks about mid-holocene settlements

    “A fascinating inquiry, which leads us to rethink the nature of human capacities, as well as the proudest moments of our own history, and our interactions with and indebtedness to the cultures and forgotten intellectuals of Indigenous societies. Challenging and illuminating”
