needs stateless

State cannot persist - however minimal - because the state as such is a merge of administration and governance; contains them both. Hence, administration will not work because it is legitimized, and answers to, 'governance', not to social needs. and governance will not work because it cannot be questioned, since it is merged with administration of social and material needs - holding them hostage.

Bostadsministern ockuperar riksdagslägenhet

Även alliansens politiker faller offer för sin egen bostadspolitik: http://m.metro.se/c.jsp?cid=25514721&itemId=http://www.metro.se/nyheter/bostadsministern-letar-ocksa-lagenhet/EVHkdk!sGqEtFnUOgFQ/

Bostadsministern tycker att innerstadslägenheterna är för dyra, och har därmed valt att ockupera en den ledamotslägenhet som han inte längre har rätt till sen han tillträdde som statsråd.

även råttorna har alltså börjat lämna det sjunkande skeppet för att simma så gott det går med oss andra.

toward the queerest insurrection

Foucault says that “power must be under-
stood in the first instance as the multiplici-
ty of force relations immanent in the sphere
in which they operate and which constitute
their own organization; as the processes
which, through ceaseless struggles and
confrontations, transforms, strengthens or
reverses them; as the support which these
force relations find in one another, thus
forming a chain or system, or on the con-
trary, the disjunctions and contradictions
which isolate them from one another; and
lastly, as the strategies in which they take
effect, whose general design or institution-
al crystallization is embodied in the state
apparatus, in the formulation of the law, in
the various social hegemonies.”
We experience the complexity of domination
and social control amplified through hetero-
sexuality. When police kill us, we want them
dead in turn. When prisons entrap our bodies
and rape us because our genders aren’t simi-
larly contained, of course we want fire to them
all. When borders are erected to construct a
national identity absent of people of color and
queers, we see only one solution: every nation
and border reduced to rubble.
