An Excerpt From Chapter 1: Dead Zones Of The Imagination: An Essay On Structural Stupidity, From The Utopia Of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity And The Secret Joys Of Bureaucracy, By David Graeber

“…the hidden reality of human life is the fact that the world doesn’t just happen. It isn’t a natural fact, even though we tend to treat it as if it is – it exists because we all collectively produce it. We imagine things we’d like and then we bring them into being. But the moment you think about it in these terms, it’s obvious that something has gone terribly wrong. Since who, if they could simply imagine any world that the liked and the bring it into being, would create a world like this one?”
