The subject of this week’s Businessweek’s cover story is David Graeber, the anthropologist who is—well, as writer Drake Bennett explains, not exactly the spokesman or leader of the Zuccotti Park protest, but something along those lines. In the story, Graeber himself notes that folks aren’t automatically receptive to his views. “Most people,” Graeber tells Bennett, “don’t think anarchism is a bad idea. They think it’s insane.” If you want to plumb deeper into those views, Graeber’s own account of the origins of the Zuccotti Park protest, “On Playing By The Rules” at the blog Naked Capitalism, is a good starting point.
