Example text

Surely the one for whom community has become an ‘issue’ is already once removed from it? The very fact of this lack of appearance of a collective political subject is embraced by contemporary philosophies of multitude, which refuse any sense of the necessity for specularization that underpins the conception of the public. In its Hobbesian origins, the self-destructive and dangerously indeterminate multitude must be transformed into the people by being bound into singular subjection to the state, its laws and ultimate monarchical authority.

To invoke community is supposedly to invoke a singular yet heterogeneous, passionate, yet rationally motivated voice speaking out of a stable sense of its own values and perspectives against the obfuscations and manipulations of toxic abstractions, usually labelled as ‘power’ or ‘capital’. As everyone is supposed to know, not merely the moral prospects of ‘society’ but the very possibility of its ecological survival depend on this community of communities. Yet this proliferation suggests that community is in fact no longer available as a simple experience at the level of the quotidian.

The actors enter and take their stationary places upon the stage, facing the audience. They are empty-handed, bare of both pretext and context, standing still upon a stage with little or no décor. Under stark white light, they look out to us, neither eyeballing individuals in a persecutory fashion, nor surveying us en masse. They appear neither afraid, nor particularly confident. It seems that something must, as the phrase goes, take place: the show must go on. But there is a reluctance to simply engage with pretence.
