On General Intercourse

Throughout the history of human sensations there have been 2 familial archetypes, those who plan and those who play. This runs from individuals through collectives.  Playing of course preceded planning. It was the primordial human condition, the naked neotenous ape in a state of perpetual play and intercourse. Planning came much later, and what inevitably followed was prohibition and scarcity.

Indeed the etymological root definition of economy tells you all you need to know about it, Household planning. Is there anyway to redeem such a deformity of development? Is the general economy as proposed by Battaile and others the redemptive direction to go in?
