50m: "Improvisation in its purest form is goal free and necessity free. It may sound kitsch, but the politics of play are fundamentally anticapitalist and anti-neoliberal because it denies consumption. There is no supply and demand in an act of play. Roleplaying is also anti algorithmic: it’s improvisatory and a chance to exit the system and imagine yourself in a new one."
