Democratic Activism: Between Organizing and Spontaneity
“What impacts have the Post-modern Turn had on the concept of the political representation? How has the post-modern turn been manifested?” These are the central questions that guide the main argument of the paper.
In following, the paper argues that by referring to “Difference” and calling for “Otherness”, the post-modern turn is mainly explained by Radical Democracy that puts emphasis on self-expression manifested in social movements as an activism beyond the limits of “organizational mediation”. These movements should be considered as main embodiment of such a new political representation. Lastly, the present research asserts that the main condition for the realization of democracy is to emphasis on Micro-politics and social movements as life-style. It is a bottom-up democratic action.
