Everything exists simultaneously

Everything exists simultaneously. Communism isn’t some imaginary society…communism is just one way of people interacting in all societies. The same can be said of exchange, the same can be said of patronage. All these different ways of giving gifts or making exchanges always exist. The question is how they come together, which are favored, and most of all, which we fix on when we try to imagine what people are really like.Anthropologist David Graeber via Giving It Away (TTBOOK)
