“I want to exercise that muscle, develop that part of the self.”
Eventually the collection of collective desire will lead us to the next step, collective action. It is through the control of what can be transmitted as desire, through the taboo, that collective action is controlled and the individual is atomized. Only certain desires are socially expressible, others remain – subconscious or mute or withering in our selves.
AN ACTION PLAN: CONFESSIONS
We will make a log of our desires and compare notes. What are those desires we share but are too scared to share? What are we hiding from ourselves and each other? How are we constantly surveilling ourselves?
First we will keep logs based on a singular time of day (10pm). Later we will try keeping a log based on a same/similar place. And why not take a guess at what other group members are desiring?
