Sample text

Der Sog geht nicht allein auf die Mittel des Zentrums zurück, Gewalt auszuüben, sondern auch auf die formale Macht, die ihm innewohnt, die Macht, totalisierend und systemati- WELTORDNUNG 31 sierend zu wirken. Wir finden hier also diese hybride Form, beschrieben von Luhmann und Rawls, doch schon zuvor bei Kelsen, diesem utopischen und deshalb unfreiwilligen und widersprüchlichen Entdecker der Seele des imperialen Rechts. Einmal mehr hilft das antike Verständnis des Empire, den Charakter dieser sich formierenden Weltordnung genauer zu erfassen.

Sie organisiert den Lauf, indem sie Verbindungen durch Netzwerke multipliziert und ihnen eine Struktur gibt. Kommunikation drückt die Bewegung der Globalisierung aus, sie kontrolliert die Bedeutung und die Richtung des Imaginären, das durch die Kommunikationsknoten läuft. Anders gesagt, das Imaginäre wird im Innern der Kommunikationsmaschine geleitet und kanalisiert. Was die Theorien der Moderne für transzendent halten mussten, also den Verhältnissen der Produktion und der Gesellschaft äußerlich, wird hier immanent geformt, innerhalb der gesellschaftlichen und Produktionsverhältnisse.

Im Unterschied dazu wird, wenn Macht vollkommen biopolitisch ist, die Gesellschaft selbst zur Machtmaschine, entwickelt sich in ihrer Virtualität. Das Verhältnis ist offen, qualitativ und affektiv. Die Gesellschaft ist wie ein einziger sozialer Körper einer Macht subsumiert, die hinunterreicht bis in die Ganglien der Sozialstruktur und deren Entwicklungsdynamiken. 19 In diesem Übergang von der Disziplinar- zur Kontrollgesellschaft könnte man nun davon sprechen, dass die zunehmend enge Beziehung und die Wechselwirkungen aller gesellschaftlichen Kräfte, die der Kapitalismus im Verlauf seiner Entwicklung immer erreichen wollte, sich realisieren.
