Social philosopher Ernst Bloch wrote that utopias and images of fulfillment, however regressive they might be, also included an impetus for a radical social change. According to Bloch, social justice could not be realized without seeing things fundamentally differently.
Something that is mere "daydreaming" or "escapism" from the viewpoint of a technological-rational society might be a seed for a new and more humane social order, as it can be seen as an "immature, but honest substitute for revolution". The Norwegian psychologist Frode Stenseng has presented a dualistic model of escapism in relation to different types of activity engagements.

He discusses the paradox that the flow state Csikszentmihalyi resembles psychological states obtainable through actions such as drug abuse, sexual masochism, and suicide ideation Baumeister. Accordingly, he deduces that the state of escape can have both positive and negative meanings and outcomes. Stenseng argues that there exist two forms of escapism with different affective outcomes dependent on the motivational focus that lies behind the immersion in the activity. Escapism in the form of self-suppression stems from motives to run away from unpleasant thoughts, self-perceptions, and emotions, whereas self-expansion stems from motives to gain positive experiences through the activity and to discover new aspects of self.
Empirical investigations of the model have shown that: . Alan Brinkley , author of Culture and Politics in the Great Depression , presents how escapism became the new trend for dealing with the hardships created by the stock market crash in : magazines, radio and movies, all were aimed to help people mentally escape from the mass poverty and economic downturn.
Famous director Preston Sturges aimed to validate this notion by creating a film called Sullivan's Travels.
The film ends with a group of poor destitute men in jail watching a comedic Mickey Mouse cartoon that ultimately lifts their spirits. Sturges aims to point out how "foolish and vain and self-indulgent" it would be to make a film about suffering. Therefore, movies of the time more often than not focused on comedic plot lines that distanced people emotionally from the horrors that were occurring all around them. These films "consciously, deliberately set out to divert people from their problems", but it also diverted them from the problems of those around them.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not to be confused with Escapology , the art of escaping physical means of restraint. For other uses, see Escapism disambiguation. Medievalism in Europe. We must decide whether we accept reality.
Alternatively, do we seek to escape the pain that comes from acknowledging the paucity of human existence? A disoriented person constantly asks whom they are and where must they go. A stupid person fails to realize basic truths and flees from reality.

Escape was necessary, reality proved too harsh. I'm not Together with Masha there, and Slava and me are both Healthy. He works as an accountant and I'm a science teacher in the primary school. I can picture it all in my head: the stove, the tables and chairs, the rug on the wall, the books we have and the vegetable plot in the garden.
