    The Revolutionary Mother: For Children and Hard Guys – by James Kimmel

    Reciprocity is not a form of economic distribution. Reciprocity is an unhurried, multidimensional relay race, sans teams, such that the baton you hand off to the person you ambled into is replaced by a like baton recieved from another who has ambled into you. The proper gift does not entail loss, nor sacrifice, nor exchange, nor gain, nor even value – it is the giving itself which is esteemed. You either play or play not. There is no game. The game of economics is born when the gift is annihilated. Mutuality is destroyed when a single particle of play collides with a corresponding antiparticle of game. Life is replaced by survival. Survival is mucking about in the mud scrounging for scraps, and fighting off other interloping scroungers – for homo economicus modernensis, it's nasty, brutal and short.

    But those scraps, how they do shine, like jewels from the diamond mine! Yahoo, yahoo! I've got so much more than you!
    – A. Runnion Polisson, Ode to Jonathan Swift

    A determined revolutionary doesn't require authorization from a central committee before offing a pig. As a matter of fact, when the need arises, the true revolutionary will off the central committee... – Eldridge Cleaver 1969
