Example text

Even the death of God no doubt came before the stage in which he was everywhere. The same goes for power, and if one speaks about it so much and so well, that's because it is deceased, a ghost, a puppet; such is also the meaning of Kafka's words: the Messiah of the day after is only a God resuscitated from among the dead, a zombie. The finesse and the microscopic nature of the analysis 64 / Forget Foucault are themselves a "nostalgia effect. " And so everywhere we see power coupled with seduction (it's almost obligatory these days) in order to give it a second existence.

No one has ever seriously considered this other, nonpolitical side of power, the side of its symbolic reversal. However, because it lacks definition by the void, this oppositional challenge has always been at stake and has overcome in the end power's political definition as central, legislative, or police power. It is also involved at the current stage, where power only appears as a sort of curvature * This is no doubt the same reversibility which the category of the feminine has exerted on the masculine throughout the entire course of our culture's sexual his­ tory: thus the challenge which the feminine offers the masculine of taking its pleasure (jouissance) alone, and of alone exercising the right to pleasure and sex.

It is only from this point on that we can conceive of a new peripeteia of power-a catastrophic one this time-where power no longer succeeds in producing the real, in reproducing itself as real, or in opening new spaces to the reality principle, and where it falls into the hyperreal and vanishes: this is the end ofpower, the end of the strategy of the real.
