Transcending Specialization

Stephen Duncombe, from one of his editor's prefaces in the Cultural Resistance Reader:

Truly radical culture, Benjamin argued, was that which can "transcend the specialization in the process of production" of capitalism. In other words, radical culture erodes the line between artist and spectator, producer and consumer, challenging the hierarchical division of labor and encouraging everyone to create. With this, Benjamin changes the terms of debate regarding cultural resistance, shifting focus from product to production.

Yes!!

This is the whole point of Global Village Basketball, and what I am envisioning when I describe a Third Golden Age of sport.
