No al futuro by Lee Edelman

By Lee Edelman

En "No al futuro", Edelman insta a las personas queer a abandonar las posiciones cómodas o integradas, y a asumir l. a. fuerza de una negatividad que él vincula con l. a. ironía, el goce y, en última instancia, con l. a. pulsión de muerte. Para ilustrar su tesis, Edelman analiza algunos textos clásicos de los angeles literatura, y especialmente dos famosas películas de Alfred Hitchcock: "Con l. a. muerte en los talones", donde el sádico Leonard pisa l. a. mano que sostiene a l. a. pareja (hetero) que está colgando al borde del abismo, y "Los pájaros", con su terror desconcertante y su predilección por los niños. Edelman amplía el alcance de los angeles teoría psicoanalítica contemporánea no solo a obras de los angeles literatura y el cine, sino también a debates políticos actuales, como el matrimonio igualitario, l. a. paternidad/maternidad de las personas LGBT y l. a. homofobia de los grupos religiosos integristas.

Ultimately, the blown-out cargo doors caused a plane crash with major loss of lives. The nuclear power plant failures at Three Mile Island in 1979 and Chernobyl in 1986 came after innumerable engineering studies had been made on the safety of these plants. Nuclear power experts had claimed that getting hit by a meteor was far more likely than a major nuclear plant accident, in retrospect clearly an invalid analogy. “In the world in which people live, power grids fail, trains derail, bridges and dams fall down, DC-10 engines fall off, and nuclear power plants come close to meltdown.

Similarly, the Soviets observe that only American bombers are active, and that American nuclear submarines in port, for example, are inactive. But once warning and intelligence systems are stimulated beyond a certain threshold, or once a certain level of alert has been ordered by political or military authorities, the situation may alter dramatically. Tight coupling of the forces increases, information begins to inundate headquarters, and human, preprogrammed-computer, and organizat-ional responses are invoked.

The view must shift to one which consistently responds to the question: What in the long run is best for everyone involved? And what are the means, consistent with that end, which I must choose?
