Wars of race, sex and class after the financial collapse

The collapse of the financial system brought about a double break in the neoliberal model that emerged after the defeat of the strange revolution of ’68. The first is the ‘crisis’ of debt and the emergence of its own subjective figure of the ‘indebted man’ and the second is that of a radicalisation of the neoliberal policies that produce an even greater concentration of wealth and heritage and the transformation of the indebted man into a neo-fascist, neo-racist, neo-fundamentalist, neo-nationalist man. We will try to analyse this new situation that introduces a new concept of ‘war’.

Maurizio Lazzarato lives and works in Paris. His research on debt (La fabrique de l'homme endetté and Gouverner par la dette) led him to question the concept of war (Guerres et Capital, co-authored with Eric Alliez), which in turn led him to problematise the concept of ‘revolution’ (Révolutions et guerres, forthcoming). The concept of war and revolution are the two great casualties of critical thinking after 1968.
