      I mean there are certainly Biopower good args and stuff, but with foucault and agamben the main grievances of biopower is that it inevitably leads to dominant power relations, zones of exclusion, the reduction of a populace to the state of bare life, and fascism. As for like the public health thing, I'd argue that the problem with that, from the biopolitical view, is not that the sovereign gives you health benefits. it's that the sovereign now controls your health, you dig?

      but what's the impact to that control if it only manifests itself in helping people live longer?
