(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #246 - Read: Alain Brossat, "Can we talk with the enemy?» (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 07 Feb 2015 16:49:15 +0200

"This book questions the status of political enmity in contemporary societies. The game of what is self-designate today as " democracy " is to maintain the denial of conflict and division by establishing a general flow regime where all the bumps are soluble in a well-regulated communication. It is to convince us that there is only 'social partners' simply separated by misunderstandings or differences for yield to share the sense of common interest. (...) In proposing a crossing of different figures in which the question arose of the relationship with the enemy, the practices of enmity (...), this book attempts to return to contemporary political thinking that nagging question: under what conditions and for what purpose can we talk with our enemies - or should we refrain from doing so? " (editor's note)

With Can we talk with the enemy? Alain Brossat continues its salutary reflection, philosophical and political, around endlessly rehashed concepts (for novlang become the quintessence of our contemporary societies neoliberal capitalist) that are "democracy," "human man "and" culture "and to do it quickly: anything that is supposed to more or less" obvious "and consensus, from right to left (" (... be wary, always!) left of the left "included). It is an understatement to say that Alain Brossat is a philosopher of dissent. Supporting its work in a constant dialogue with Michel Foucault (among many others), and, to use his own words, "beyond" him, he is among those who will spare nothing and no one in the quest for thought and a critical action opening up possible futures-revolutionaries. Suffice to say that in these times of negation of thought and regressions Brossat read, talk with her research is an absolute necessity. At the time when ultramédiatique wallows politicians across the political spectrum, not just at election time (which Deleuze said that "we[will] have long" ), we must conclude with him for our fights today ' hui and future: "We do not communicate with the enemy we fight.»
