Ludic Education for the Proletarian Vanguard
“By being thrown into history, by having to participate in the labour and struggles which make up history, people find themselves obliged to view their relations in a clear manner. This history has no object distinct from what takes place within it, even though the last unconscious metaphysical vision of the historical epoch could look at the productive progression through which history has unfolded as the very object of history. The subject of history can be none other than the living producing themselves, becoming master and possessor of their world which is history, and existing as consciousness of their game.” – Guy Debord
