[Xmca-l] Re: Playing with/at TED



A fascinating and moving 14+minutes of Lois ....only how I wish that I did
not subscribe to a class analysis which means that the last example of the
'kids of colour' and the NYPD is called into deep question - will the
lethal divides of capitalism's "special bodies of armed men" from
working-class citizens, (and of course it extends to imperialism's
destruction of whole countries), be 'overcome' by Play. Lois' commitment
and passionate intelligence almost lets me believe it might, but I know
that I'm fooling myself.
We need Play to evolve the next tranche of revolutionary strategy and
tactics, but Play alone will never arrive at the necessity for
revolutionary overthrow of capitalism, only, from Lois' examples,
ultimately futile attempts at transcending class conflict,
