Topic of the Week: Play
Of all the human experiences, play has one of the greatest potentials to tell us about ourselves. To some, play represents an essence that seems to evoke the child or the animal in a person and it has been argued that humans distinguish themselves precisely by the manner and frequency by which they play. In this topic of the week, we’re looking at the anarchist idea of play.
As anarchists, how do we play? What is the ideal anarchist game? What about anarchist friendly games you and your friends have played / used to interact in the world? How can we interact (play) together outside the context of capital? How has play helped to mentally and physically keep us sharp? Does your anarchist practice and strategy take play into consideration? Why / why not?
