Giorgio Agamben, “What is a people?”:

“… our epoch is nothing other than the attempt- implacable and methodical – to end the split which divides the people, thus radically eliminating the populations of the excluded. This attempt joins, according to different formalities and horizons, the right and the left, capitalist countries and socialist countries, all of which are united in the project – futile in the final analysis but which has been partially realized in all industrialized countries – of producing a one, indivisible people; the obsession with development is so successful in our time because it coincides with the biopolitical project of producing a people without a fracture.” (12)
