: social activity, not function. Its chosen voluntary and individual.

Indeed, as would labour be under socialism, however, you'd have to chose a reocgnised position to play in- being the fielder between the batsman and the bowler is not just unwise, it'd spoil the game for everyone.

: Whats the point of working it if you exist at the behest of a faceless mass and their supposed 'representatives' (such would invariably come about)

No, because its not a faceless mass, or 'the people' in the Chinese State Capitalist Sense, it would be individuated, particulalrised peopel in the community around you, and with individuals from other communities, etc. Its a personal relationship thing.

: None of which requires to be anything other than individuated.

I am individuated, but my point was that my individuality is a collective of many fragmented and disperate occurances/experiences.

: A state does not have the right to steal a moment of your time. Its to be given voluntarily. Even if this was made clear I imagine attendance would be very high

But the state isn't taking your time, you give up your time to defend your own freedom....*gibbers off, unable to surmount the incomprehension gap...*
