Item Description

Caret Down Primary

They say that “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Really, we should explain what type of play is permitted. We need a list of appropriate games that will surely not corrupt the minds of our youth, that will foster obedience and commitment to continuous revolution. Our youth are our glory, and the key to winning the big game… For example, Monopoly, with its origins in bourgeois apologist ideology should be required play for the population; this, of course, with modification to the rules that includes the ability to flip the table and seize the means of production when circumstances become unfair. Or dou dizhu, but with the context of the good old days. These games, of course, involve struggle; they are work too. We should consider permitting students to take time out of the fight to relax a little bit—we don’t want them getting dull! Maybe build some swings?
