Capitalism's grow-or-die imperative stands radically at odds with ecology's imperative of interdependence and limit. The two imperatives can no longer coexist with each other; nor can any society founded on the myth that they can be reconciled hope to survive. Either we will establish an ecological society or society will go under for everyone, irrespective of his or her status.

Players stand in a lose circle. One play holds the ball and throws it to another player saying "Catch!" That player catches the ball throws it to a third player, also saying "Catch!" And that's it! Well, not quite. When all the players are comfortable with the idea of catch other phrases can be introduced. For example, "Don't catcn!". "Catch and jump!" "Jump and Catch!" "Don't catch and spin! " The receiving player tries to meet the challenge set by the player throwing the ball.
When introducing this game I've usually worked with a partner. Both partners should be careful to avoid saying "Pass!" until the phrase catch is fully estabished. If care is not taken children may end up being confused and say "pass" when they are throwing the ball. If working alone, it possible to exablish the idea of saying catch by demonstrating that the ball should be ignored unless the thrower says, "Catch!" Make the game one of saying and not saying the word catch and catching and not catching the ball. Then adding "Don't Catch!" is straightforward.
