11.   Note

Where society is founded on the accumulation of wealth and built on the productive use of resources, it is in the unproductive consumption of resources and the useless expenditure of energy that community comes into being: in festivals, dancing, intoxication, laughter, poetry, ecstasy, eroticism, violence, sacrifice and death – in everything, in short, that dissolves the bonds of society, its hierarchy of power relations.
