The State

Category: The State


The State is the master problem of the modern era, and in the words of Clausewitz, the most important phenomenon in history.


As a world phenomenon, what is at stake in globalism — no less — is the ascent to dominance of the State as Being on the landscape that we compose, as the plane of becoming.


Globalization is not in tension with governance. Each is the logic of the other. This equivalence lies deep within the genealogy of the modern state.


While space in the modern era has opened up, giving an illusion of freedom, time and pace have closed in on animal man, constituting foundations of a new general confinement.


Before animal man could be set into motion, he first had to learn the discipline of stillness. The regularization of human populations readied them for dromocratic society.
