AGON

Competition, Antagonism, Tests, Athletic skill

To lift a consensus, to break reality, to struggle against, to throw rules into question or to reinforce them through repetition. It is a backdrop and a place where the divination of just and righteous acts are settled through the proxy of violence, an enactment of skill and chance that tests the properties of a thing and decides a temporary winner. AGON is an orderly destruction, a temporary veil of order; it’s crunch time.
Are you the teammate or the opponent, The cheater or the spoilsport?

Winning is not about destruction of the loser but about placing a newly formed hegemony into place; that can run counter to an existing, and more real, kind of hegemony. The institutions of life often contain the serious play of agonism; counting the players as opponents and teammates. Is it possible to break the game that is being played without becoming a heretic and a spoilsport?
