Dissensus: On Politics and Aesthetics: Jacques Rancière: Continuum

No instruction, no human being. For instance, the distinctions between the ethical, representational, and aesthetic regimes, while glossed in Corcoran’s introduction, do not make much of an appearance in the text. There are two kinds of politics in the status quo, fake poser bullshit masquerading as politics and the real thing.

While Althusser and other Marxists were asserting the importance of Marxist academia in the French student revolts, Ranciere began to break away from this traditional mode of thought. He makes it clear that he thinks Police is inevitable and he is not referring, as Zizek seems to think, to the necessary force a revolutionary state would need to deploy to defend itself.

And that was really all that mattered: You see, some bankers made this park on stolen native land for them to eat lunch in while tanciere rested from robbing the world of millions of dollars with complicated derivatives and other bullshit nobody understands.
