Mon, 08/26/2013

Clayton Morgareidge reads from and comments on David Graeber's The Democracy Project, which argues that our whole political system functions by bribery, and that the corruption of government entails the corruption of language through euphemism. For instance, rape, torture, and murder are now "human rights violations"; bribery of public officials is "lobbying"; soliciting bribes is "fundraising."
