Pleasure Activism vs. Teleological Activism
lol- ok. This is the kind of shit I think about constantly.
Some people motivate themselves through constructing teleological narratives, they believe that consciously crafting a story to contextualize our experience is the way to motivate collective involvement in creating social change.
However, Pleasure Activism in on the rise promoting the possibility of motivating behavior through a present moment of embodied depth connection. The fear of releasing the teleological narratives is that we will fall into a depressed nihilism and evil will prevail. However, it is possible that coming from pleasure can be just as useful and potentially even a more sustainable way of participating in the ever evolving socio-political and natural rhythms of life happening.
