Deployment of Sexuality (Faucault)

the previous video talks about the deployment of sexuality and the deployment of alliance, found this blog from someone who’s looked into it, really helps in understanding what he means, and also what faucault means when he uses the term “power”

“It seems to me that power must be understood in the first instance as the multiplicity of force relations immanent in the sphere in which they operate and which constitute their own organization; as the process which, through ceaseless struggles and confrontations, transforms, strengthens, or reverses them; as the support which these force relations find in one another, thus forming a chain or a system, or on the contrary, the disjunctions and contradictions which isolate them from one another; and lastly as the strategies in which they take effect, whose general design or institutional crystallization is embodied in the state apparatus, in the formulation of the law, in the various social hegemonies.”
