    Rarely in life do we have a chance to read a book and know that we have been transformed through the reading processThis is a powerful book of death power war terrorism and racism Nanoracism is an astonishingly achingly biting concept that punctuates so much of the book The living and lived conseuences of slavery and colonization soak each pageThe four stars were given because I wanted I am greedy The attention to Fanon locks Mbembe into a particular discursive frame While I respect Fanon's theorization enormously the brutalizing financialization of the last ten years reuires different answers to very distinctive uestions Further Mbembe's engagement with the political economy is not strong His focus on terrorism rather than its tendrils from international capitalism results in a devastating attention to violence but the incendiary brutality particularly to women is underplayedA magnificent book A life changer A movement in thinking

    This collection of essays ‘Necropolitics’ Duke University Press 2019 by Achille Mbembe has been on my radar for a while Yeah the white woman’s uest to decolonize her bookshelf continues eye roll Obviously necro death politics is some kind of reference or Fanonian expansion of Foucault’s bio life politics Mbembe has already developed the concept in the early 2000s but this collection of essays including an essay on Necropolitics places this concept in its wider context of the current state of increasing incompatibility of liberal democracy and capitalism and the rise of authoritarianism as the defining feature of the 21st century Hamid Dabashi’s Europe and Its Shadows Coloniality after Empire Pluto Press 2020 us also an excellent similar read on thisAs with all or most postcolonial writers this is no easy read btw did anybody ever manage to understand Gayatri Spivak? Although lately I managed to find a way of reading these texts by approaching them like abstract art taking it all on in and let it work rather than trying to make sense of every line before seeing the whole argument In the intro Mbembe describes his style as follows “In so doing I found nothing appropriate than a figural style of writing that oscillates between the vertiginous dissolution and dispersal” Vertiginous indeed There is no better way to summarize the book than in the two sentences from the intro“Democracy the plantation and the colonial empire are objectively all part of the same historical matrix This originary structuring fact lies at the heart of every historical understanding of the violence of the contemporary global order”You know how people write shitty things on ‘wall tattoos’ in their kitchens like ‘carpe diem ’ or some other positive thinking crap I could see this on my kitchen wall totally ironic of course 🙄So back to the book It’s a bunch of essays that look at late capitalism global financial capitalism its ever increasing ineuality militarization enmity and terror as well as by a resurgence of racist fascist and nationalist forces determined to exclude and kill Building on and going beyond Foucault’s concept of biopolitics Mbembe analyses the various contemporary powers of death including social and civil death necropolitics the war on terror the various forms of camps slums and other global ‘surplus’ populations who are being forced to live in a state between life and death “necropolitics and necropower accounts for the various ways in which in our contemporary world weapons are deployed in the interest of maximum destruction of persons and the creation of death worlds new and uniue forms of social existence in which vast populations are subjected to conditions of life conferring upon them the status of living dead” It’s similar to what Judith Butler refers to as ‘grievable’ versus ‘non grievable’ lives What’s an important thread running through the essays is that the civil peace in the west depends in large parts on inflicting violence far away Drowning refugees on the EU’s shores is not a contradiction but in some Hegelian sense or other lol is already part western democracy and its intrinsic relationship with imperialism “Historically liberal democracy has always needed a constitutive Other for its legitimation an Other who is and is not at the same time part of the polis”

    i am not an avid theory person obsessed as i am with material conseuence but i thought this laid out some crucial connections and frameworks i was particularly interested in the chapter on viscerality esp its mediations on the troubling conseuences of technological logic

    “The ultimate expression of sovereignty resides to a large degree in the power and the capacity to dictate who may live and who must die” The political theorist Achille Mbembe is an author I can never get enough of He is a thought provoking writer who was highly influential during my undergrad years so it is no coincidence that I turn to his wisdom during this uncertain times In Necro death politics I finds some answers and unsettling uestions we can use to explain the crisis of sovereignty Especially in times like this when the Covid 19 pandemic seems to be a test of this resolve It is fair to say this current climate is a mix of FoucaultMbembe couched with little doses of Marx I digress “Democracy the plantation and the colonial empire are objectively all part of the same historical matrix This originary structuring fact lies at the heart of every historical understanding of the violence of the contemporary global order”Mbembe isn’t afraid to tell it as it is In some way Mbembe reminds me of Edouard Glissant as he rejects the limitations of geography and in fact theorizes from a position which stretches beyond the confines of the nation state In Necropolitics Mbembe wields history with precision and tells us that history can be fcking complex disturbing multiplicitous and complicated That the struggles within any nation state African States Latin America Middle East Global South etc are deeply tied to issues of Western modernity With authority Mbembe’s Necropolitics speaks with clarity to the issues of this very political moment One only needs to observe the collapse of state structures in the Global South dare I say and North In addition I enjoyed Mbembe footnotes they are not comforting but he introduces you to incredible Writers Scholars and Theorists At the end of my study I had a thorough grasp of both Foucault's bio life politics and Mbembe Necro death politics and was able to place these terms and Theorists in conversation with one another I will definitely be reading Necropolitics again As I staunchly believe it is an essential read we can all utilize as a society to envision a brave new worldCritiues Language can sometimes be a bit abstract might reuire supplementary readings It also can be uite daunting Mbembe's writing style can sometimes come off as overly academic Jargon Post colonial Authors need to relax with the jargon lol who are you writing for?

    Mbembe writes about necropolitics but fails to fully recognize the oppression of non human animals It is just impossible to define necropolitics without taking into account the problem of the enslavement of all sentient beings regardless of their species of origin You can't understand racism and dehumanization without understanding speciesism and devaluation of non human animals And you can't understand colonization without understanding anthropopressure The ‘desire of apartheid’? Look at your plate at slaughterhouses at the global necropolitics of domestication Moral blind spots they are everywhere

    The man is right Militarization enenimity virtually unknown before 1964 have appeared out of nowhere in the World And Mbembe is the man to find the source of the problem and maybe show us the way to the sweet and calm days of 1942

    this hits differently in These Troubled Times

    Overall great and inspiring book based very closely on Fanon One point I would make is the inconsistency in the repeated use of the word Balkanization For an anti capitalist and anti racist book I am surprised at its use since this word was invented by capitalism to vilify the separation of states and redistribution of power and as a reference to an ethnic war condemns one population Balkans and typical racism against Eastern Europeans as barbarians in order to condemn others many separatist and anti colonial groups in Africa and South America who desire self sovereignty and self determination

    Nearly everywhere the political order is reconstituting itself as a form of organization for death 7The reader will have understood—language's function in such writing is to return to life what had been abandoned to the powers of death It is to reopen access to the deposits of the future beginning with the future of those in whom not so long ago it was hard to say which part pertained to the human and which to the animal object thing or commodity 8No democracy exists without its double without its colony—little matter the name and the structure The colony is not external to democracy and is not necessarily located outside its walls Democracy bears the colony within it just as colonialism bears democracy often in the guise of a mask 27It is not certain however that the history of Being is granted this relation with the theology of catastrophe for all humanity In ancient African traditions for example the point of departure for the uestioning of human existence is not the uestion of being but that of relation of mutual implication that is to say the discovery and the recognition of a different flesh from mine It is the uestion of knowing how to transport myself to faraway places that are different from mine and implicated in it From this perspective identity is a matter not of substance but of plasticity It is a matter of co composition of opening onto the over there of another flesh of reciprocity between multiple fleshes and their multiple names and places 28In several regards the uestion that we raised yesterday is exactly the same one that we must raise anew today This is the uestion of knowing if it was ever possible if it is possible and if it will ever be possible for us to encounter the other differently than as a given object one that is simply there at arm's length Can there be anything that links us to others with whom we can declare that we are together? What forms might this solicitude take? Is another politics of the world possible a politics that no longer necessarily rests upon difference or alterity but instead on a certain idea of the kindred and the in common? Are we not condemned to live in our exposure to one another sometimes in the same space? 40I have demonstrated that the notion of biopower is insufficient to account for contemporary forms of the subjugation of life to the power of death Moreover I have put forward the notion of necropolitics or necropower to account for the various ways in which in our contemporary world weapons are deployed in the interest of maximally destroying persons and creating death worlds that is new and uniue forms of social existence in which vast populations are subjected to living conditions that confer upon them the status of the living dead 92The Enlightenment notion of the rational subject capable of deliberation and choice is gradually being replaced by the consciously deliberating and choosing customer 109The main clash of the first half of the twenty first century will not oppose religions or so called civilizations It will oppose liberal democracy and global capitalism It will pit in ways we have not seen before the rule of finance against the rule of the peopleWith the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the advent of globalization the fate of capitalism does not any longer depend structurally on liberal democracy They are on a collision course and we are now well along the way toward their disentanglementThe dogmas that modern forms of capitalism had reluctantly shared with democracy since the postwar period—individual liberty market competition and the rule of the commodity and property the cult of science technology and reason—are currently under threat At its core liberal democracy is not compatible with the inner logic of global finance capitalism The clash between these two ideas and principles is likely to be the most significant event of the first half of a twenty first century political landscape itself shaped less and less by the rule of reason and and by the general release of passions emotions and affect 111The body of the suffering subject is no longer a dwelling If it remains a dwelling it is hardly inviolable It is no longer able to preserve anything at all Its organs let go and its substances are on the loose It can now be expressed only under the sign of the void or mutism—fear of collapse the difficult to inhabit language anew to return to speech to make oneself heard and conseuently live lifeBehind the feeling of bodily expropriation lies a story of murder Its context is a colonial war Colonial war like other forms of war rests upon a funerary economy—killing and getting killed 152Césaire Senghor Fanon Wynter Glissant and Gilroy seek to speak with as full a voice as possible from an incomplete partial and fragmented archive For an incomplete archive to speak with the fullness of a voice it has to be created not out of nothing but out of the debris of information on the very site of the ruins the remains and traces left behind by those who passed awayIn such a context the critiue of Western humanism is not a mere historical account of what happened—the book of atrocities It also the mourning of what was lost in a way that does not well in the trauma in a way that allows the survivor to escape the curse of repetition to put the debris together again In this tradition to mourn what has been lost the critiue of Western humanism is akin to returning to life the harvest of bones that have been subjected to the forces of desiccation in an attempt to render the world habitable again and for all 160

    Achille Mbembe offers students of ethnic studies postcolonial studies and indigenous studies a genealogical undercommons grounded in the psychopolitical writings of Frantz Fanon as opposed to the Eurocentric lineage of biopolitics focusing on Michel Foucault Hannah Arendt Giorgio Agamben Hardt Negri For the author the necropolitical is the creation of death worlds where the slave plantation and the settler colony become Empire's forms of dying extrapolated across the mind flesh and relations of the oppressed If you enjoyed Black Skin White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth Mbembe's writing is a sensible extension of Fanon's legacy
