In my previous post I claimed that playing, laughing, chanting, and walking are acts of resistance. Here’s why: When we play for playing’s sake, that is when we play for the sheer joy of playing, we slip from zero–sum thinking to non–zero thinking: from trying to win the game to trying to maintain the game. When we laugh we make it impossible to be afraid. When we chant we open our hearts, empty our heads, and unclench our fists. And when we walk we meet the world and are met by it, and in so doing we discover it isn’t an it at all, but a Thou.
