Example text

Although Dunn was forthright in anticipating the potential manipulation and co-optation of these social groups by politicians and state agencies, he however minimizes their ideological commitment by his sweeping generalization about co-optation. Instead of co-optation, some elements of these groups may indeed be accused of corruption as the proceeds from Carnival are neither evenly distributed nor are the workers adequately compensated afterward. 43 Armstrong examines the CARNIVAL IN AFRICA AND ITS DIASPORA 17 global economy’s effect on the local pessimism that stems from frustrations about the lack of reforms and the increasing possibility of empowerment based on “the development of a sophisticated leisure market centered on the African cultural heritage” (140).

Despite these ambiguities, DaMatta, in a recent reflection, argues that no other cultural form supersedes Carnival: “This Carnival, with its generous leniency, with its magnificent anti-bourgeois spirit, with its attitude resolutely opposed to utilitarian reason, with its tendency toward ambiguity, mythical representations .
