Example text

Desire is captured by capitalism and enslaved to the axiomatic of production for the market not merely by the repressive capacity of the state but also through the exercise of a pastoral power operative in a multitude of technologies of desire promoted in various spaces of enclosure (prison, factory, school, home), human sciences, civic programs, practices, and organizations, and so forth. Beyond madness? When faced with the madness that is savage capitalism, the temptation is to despair, to answer “yes” to Hinkelammert’s query, ¿Capitalismo sin Alternativas?

In essence, police science included everything – all persons and things – that provided the state with resilience and splendor. As feudalism dissolved, theorists of police science saw the social terrain as a vast open space traversed by people and things that needed regulation and order. The science of police was about the task of forming the social body, shaping the newly conceived “population” into an efficient and productive body. The extent of the regulation they proposed to accomplish this feat went far beyond anything that had previously been enacted.

77 The ebb and flow of the life of populations constantly exceeded the regulation of the state. Hence, before long the sovereign state lost its position as the container of the population and instead became but a segment of the population. The perspective of population also undermined state reason’s rationale. The individualizing, pastoral power exercised by police science on the population encouraged the fragmentation of what had been the end of the state. As knowledge of the population expanded, the state increasingly had a difficult time correlating the diverse ends and processes and interests of the population with the end of the state.
