- Last node club of 2021! I am going to look at gift economy. (I was originally going to look at totalitarianism as I'm reading V for Vendetta but this feels a bit more festive). I am interested how gift economies relate to / differ from mutual aid and commoning.

- Gift economy
Giving lives in a domain ranging from deep symbolism to basic housekeeping. It is the currency of the small-scale resilient community. It is sometimes magic, in that some kinds of gift can be given over and over again without loss—love, for example, and (in a different sense, since time cannot really be replenished) the gift of reciprocal service to each other. The “reciprocal” part happens, but not by arrangement. This is the opposite of transparency: you cast your gift upon the waters, and what comes back is trust.
