Arghestan City of Afghanistan for Those exercising power may employ force as an ultimate sanction. Yet power itself is grounded on the freedom of the individual to respond in any number of ways, even though the exercise of power makes certain responses more likely”more or less profitable, more or less pleasurable, more or less prudent”than others. Those who are enmeshed in relations of power retain options. For Foucault, it remains indispensable to every power relationship that ˜the other’ (the one over whom power is exercised) be thoroughly recognized and maintained to the very end as a person who acts; and that, faced with a relationship of power, a whole field of responses, reactions, results, and possible inventions may open up.41 Attitudes, modernity and postmodernity 9 1 values, behavior, and the formation of identity, in other words, may be largely but never exhaustively determined by the exercise of particular forms of power. In the absence of outright violence, the opportunity for resistance born of freedom persists. While postmodern theorists advocate resistance to normalization, they also remind us that unmitigated autonomy remains impossible. Arghestan City of Afghanistan 2016.
