I was thinking about the American dream. The idea of entrepreneurship. The idea of pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. I think it is a crock.
I think choice needs to be conceptualized in very different ways.
I think that Badiou's notion of the atonal world has a part to play in it.
I think Zizek's notion of retroactive freedom has a lot to do with it.
I am too tired to really write about this.
But this is the issue I am finding myself drawn towards.
The issue of action.
The issue of choice.
Really, we can just do things.
Maybe I should spend more time just doing things and less time thinking about how to do them.
Because they are in some ways incompatible.
Not entirely. Habit is a great example of how thought and action can be intertwined and made compatible.
But god dammit I spend too much time thinking.
What bull shit.
I need to do more things. I need to walk more. Go more places.
