Normally I would be having a peaty single malt Scotch, but since I’m reading Graeber’s Pirate Enlightenment, I feel obligated to work on a bottle of white rum tonight. 📖🏴☠️🥃

@chrisaldrich I wonder what you would recommend to go with The Dawn of Everything?
@jeremycherfas Is there a particular direction you’re looking to go? For some of the underlying additonal proof in a similar direction, I’m still reeling at Lynne Kelly’s Knowledge and Power in Prehistoric Societies (Cambridge, 2015) though her book Songlines with Margo Neale may be closer in tone and a bit less “academic”. If you haven’t read it, Walter Ong’s Orality and Literacy is fascinating.
@chrisaldrich You’re overthinking this, Chris. As rum is to Pirates, so X is to American indigenous philosophers.
@jeremycherfas Yeah, that went sideways for sure. 🤣
For me it would be straight sour mash, but others might appreciate a nice muscadine wine. 🤷🏼
@chrisaldrich Sour mash sounds good to me. Lots of Algonquin cocktails, but that would be highly inappropriate.
