Mutual Aid part 3
2021 Mar 0845m 51s
It's Mutual Aid by Peter Kropotkin! This week, the gang talks about mutual aid in tribal societies. Kropotkin was writing over a century ago, and there's some racist language used. We also discuss Celtic laws, and there's some fatphobia, so trigger warnings abound. Also, obesity is caused by a variety of factors, not just "eating too much." Collin has no fucking idea when the Celtic wars with the Romans were, DO NOT trust the dates he provides for those events, he's off by like 300 years.
