Play vs. Bureaucracy

McLuhan and Fiore, War and Peace in the Global Village, 1968, p.173:

The world of play is necessarily one of uncertainty and discovery at every moment whereas the ambition of the bureaucrat and the systems-builder is to deal only with foregone conclusions.

. . .

Real play, like the whodunit, throws the stress on process rather than on product, giving the audience the chance of being a maker rather than a mere consumer.
