(en) France, Alternative Libertair #220 - Sport: In Praise of through Collective, ed. libertarian (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 18:14:52 +0200

It starts with a confession comical and it ends in fireworks anecdotes sports libertarian free, discharge ... including ideas. ---- The confession is that of Jean-Marc Reynaud (one of the authors), which tells how he has long hidden his libertarian comrades he loved the sport, and even - supreme infamy - he practiced as an it could. Collection of articles written for the occasion, taken from World Libertarian or other journals sometimes old, Praise the pass is a praise to everything that makes more alive, more united, more politically strong as in the sport. And the whole is in a good mood contagious. Mainly football, chronicles remember how the working class has recovered to the aristocracy of sports often from soils, and how to cleave practice horse riding and tennis on one side and the other football league and Game.

They analyze, in the writings of Jean-Claude Michea, the contradictions of the intelligentsia "left" in respect of football, but also how the money has distorted until its tactics game: its internal organization.

It confirms that the red and black jerseys rugby teams in Toulouse and Toulon owe nothing to chance, but many Spanish refugees of the CNT, and recounts the game of revenge: FC vs FC Kronstadt Lenin (it not invented). Always about Rugby we learn the role of Vichy to eradicate the game XIII, too popular, too strong politically in favor of the game and XV until the 1970s!

Beyond the anecdotal, the book also examines deeply the political debate of the role of sport, its relation to the body, to another, to notions of competition and competition. And if he remains largely favorable to the exercise sportsman, he does not exclude contrary views, examines the phenomenon of "supporters", the challenge capitalist form the sport as an ideology. Similarly, it could be said that a team sport libertarian, free of arbitrators, joint teams, self-managed, rules discussed previously in the game. Upon arrival, despite some unevenness in the quality of articles, the book reads like an adventure, not only a glorious past of Footballers proletarians, nasty, glorious, selfless and politicized, but also a future embodied initiatives by activists and sports as varied as jouissives, and as creative as happily from all over the world.

Pass! pass!
