The capital – from the nihilistic operator to the suicidal fascist

11 Nov , 2019  

Lyotard writes that capital is a pseudo-organism that is not even able to formulate a discourse that establishes its own truth, since it has no metaphysics to explain and justify its existence. The statement made by the Invisible Committee that we live in a world without justification has been true ...

Mbembe: Nanoracism and narcotherapy

14 Okt , 2019  

For Felix Guattari, even at the beginning of the age of digitized mobility in the 1980s, it seemed crystal clear that large sections of the population, which we now call the global surplus population, would be assigned “a corner on the planet that has become a global factory to which ...

Micropolitics and Segmentarity

17 Feb , 2019  

We cannot say that one of these three lines is bad and another good, by nature and necessarily. The study of the dangers of each line is the object of pragmatics or schizoanalysis, to the extent that it undertakes not to represent, interpret, or symbolize, but only to make maps ...

Life and Prison (Alienocene 3)

24 Okt , 2018  

For Afro-pessimists, the Black subject is exiled from the human relation, which is predicated on social recognition, volition, subjecthood, and the valuation of life itself.

Cunning War Machines

A speculative proposition: Deleuze and Guattari’s admonitions of caution in relation to absolute deterritorialization and destratification, as detailed in A Thousand Plateaus, is isomorphic to their historical analysis of the war machine’s capture and subordination of the State and the global geopolitical fallout from this movement.

Imperium
