I'll try and get the prologue done by this evening, and maybe the first chapter as well, got to move stuff today.
I expect a line-by-line report drawing on at least twenty other sources (no more than two from the internet). Double-spaced, Times New Roman, 1-inch margins. On my desk by 5:00 PM, liberal scum!
Also, check out David Graeber on the history of money as an antidote. Graeber isn't the first to notice that this narrative is just another flight of fantasy "state of nature" theory cooked up by some classical liberal philosophers and then imported into the equally fantastic neoclassical economic models, he's just the most recent.
