Greetings, Kind Bafflers!

Thanks to everyone who joined in, near and far, during last Friday's debate between dueling futurists David Graeber and Peter Thiel. Video, as promised, is coming soon. In the meantime, do enjoy this piece in the New York Times about the event, which has given us our new favorite tagline for our fair magazine. "The Baffler: Objectively, a waste of time."

Did you think we were through with our recent string of #innovative #programming? Nay! The rest of our book tour in support of our new anthology, No Future For You, is still to come, all throughout October. Perhaps it is coming to a town near-ish you? We do hope you can join us.

Also, please enjoy these salvos and posts, below, that you may have missed in the past week on The Baffler online.

We remain,
The Baffler
