On the #pomo “debate”, best to keep it to the basics
@witchescauldron I don't think you understand post modernity. Though I am sure I don't!
But the lack of doubt you have in thinking it's a "thing" to "debate" seems to me a clear flag that you don't understand it.
Anyway.,. it't not super important what I think. What I think is important is if you are finding it useful having a "debate".
It's a useless idolatry ;)
@witchescauldron I don't think an understanding and affinity to the use value, and power of postmodernist/poststructuralist analysis is antagonistic to building movements that are in response to climate chaos.
Furthermore, I would say without such analyses your survival/revolutionary movement will likely fail by reproducing power structures and systems that are antithetical to it's stated aims.
Anyway, I look forward to reading your further discourse on this. Thanks for sharing.
@witchescauldron that sounds like a lot of work for me though. I was wondering if you could .. like .. point me to something more specific. To help me.
@kat what we have in our current #dotcons mess is http://hamishcampbell.com/2021/07/04/brining-meaning-is-a-hard/ and the sporns of the dead #pomo ideology is taking up a lot of our social space that we need to survive and flourish in the era of #climatechoas
Ps. I like to keep things "simple" thus use a lot of metaphors to give space for thought.
