calling a spade a suit of cards (harassment and abuse meta, physical violence as metaphor) (291 words) 

@garbados Apparently the idea of Indigenous people trading pelts for squash or whatever is something Adam Smith just full-on made up

There have been a lot of anthropologists that have studied gift economies (likely the dominant system before colonialism, not barter) and have written things like "they give each other gifts on the assumption that they'll be owed a gift back sometime in the future," and then give absolutely no evidence for that. Whereas the ones who actually ask the people doing it are often told "nah, I gave him that because he's my bro and that's just what we do." The tit-for-tat relationship is just imposed on it to maintain the idea that capitalism is natural (whether intentionally on the anthropologists' part or not)
