The economics of fear, the politics of hope, and the perversity of happiness
This article shows how, even in the context of economic crisis, sex is the embodiment of morality in US public discourse. Because of the ways that secular freedom holds together political economy and a politics of sexuality, both religious affect and secular psychoanalysis have become organized around a correlation between morality and sexual practice. Through a brief genealogy of conscience the essay offers perverse happiness as a point of ethical affect that is not trapped in this modern morality play of sexuality.
