Are our supposedly 'smart' tools actually enslaving us? Justus Schütze takes us on a journey of how our relationship with energy has evolved, from the pyramids of Egypt to caretaker robots. He argues that humans have become hyper-consumers who need to return to a group-based energy system. Relying on 3 main convivial tools, he believes we can shake off our 'consumer' labels and return to being 'makers' once again.
