Recommended Posts

https://www.jacobinmag.com/2015/05/camden-obama-police-brutality-black-lives-matter/ : "We should ask if ... much-lauded reforms further entrench and legitimize these same criminal justice institutions...".

 

a Foucault kritik by any other name works as sweet.

well Foucault at least does not advocate 'a total rejection of all state power', as I've tried to demonstrate elsewhere: http://www.cross-x.com/topic/5245-alternative-to-empire-debate-about-it/page-2?do=findComment&comment=96971 & http://www.cross-x.com/topic/45099-more-cede-the-political/?do=findComment&comment=765072. this should not, however, reprieve the specific state institutions at issue from critique.
