Pirate Enlightenment in the Ezra Klein Show

Published on: June 15 / 2023

David Graeber’s book “Pirate Enlightenment, Or the Real Libertalia” was recommended in the Ezra Klein Show episode from June 9

Each Tuesday and Friday, Ezra Klein invites you into a conversation on something that matters. How do we address climate change if the political system fails to act? Has the logic of markets infiltrated too many aspects of our lives? What is the future of the Republican Party? What do psychedelics teach us about consciousness? What does sci-fi understand about our present that we miss? Can our food system be just to humans and animals alike?

The episode titled “What Communes and Other Radical Experiments in Living Together Reveal” was released on June 9 and dedicated to a discussion of Kristen Ghodsee’s book “Everyday Utopia: What 2,000 Years of Wild Experiments Can Teach Us About the Good Life”. David Graeber’s “Pirate Enlightenment” got into a recommended readings list for the episode.
