About This File
The Destitution K is an anarchist critique of power primarily authored by the Invisible Committee. Their argument is that the foundation of contemporary power has become fluid - control is dissipated through psychological and affective investments that sustain an insidious form of governance. The capacity to manage and orient the desires of bodies constitutes a particularly violent form of biopolitics which manifests itself in the global war on terror and militant strategies of policing domestically and abroad (Drone Strikes are one quintessential example of the core impact claim). Ultimately, The Invisible Committee argues that we need to destitute the foundation of power through insurrection. Insurrection is the anarchist form of political (dis)engagement which refuses not just the ethicality of the state but its impetus for control, while gesturing toward alternative social formations that exceed the totalizing ruse of power.
