Deleuze / Guattari: Societies of Control & Antipsychiatry


“This is a 43 min video presentation, the text can be read here http://the-simulon.blogspot.ca/ the information concerns a very important global issue of today on the subject of techno-cybernetic control of governments and society that is responsible for a great number of technologically unrelated global issues such as global capitalism, social media, social control, global exploitation, the global elite, bio-power, trilateral and unilateral economic domination, civil war, war in the Middle East, colonization, the world economy, Third World exploitation, famine, environmental issues, the politics of race, gender, sexuality and mental illness. A subject that is rarely if ever discussed in a global context. It was derived from a transcript I wrote on Gilles Deleuze’s 1990 ‘Postscript on the Societies of Control’ inspired by Gary Hall, Clare Bichall and Peter Woodbridge’s 2010 text and video ‘Deleuze’s Postscript on Societies of Control’ published in Culture Machine. It includes as well a historical overview of the antipsychiatry movement in France which Felix Guattari participated during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Integrated into the theory, the presentation also shows an exact correlation of Norbert Wiener’s principle thesis of Cybernetics with the Deleuzian-Guattarian concept of gaseous and fluidic forms and flows of corporate capital in today’s society, the micropolitics of control, deterritorialized assemblages, and distributed networks such as the internet, Facebook, social community organizing in neocapitalist democracies, IBM agenda, global policing, military police, community organization, enforcement and manipulation by technological monitoring and scanning of public spaces and information privacy issues. Social democracy and corporate governance is theorized in a post-structuralist interpretation of emerging globalization issues and pinpoints some of the mechanisms involved suggesting that politicians and the corporate entities that run their embodied governments (including the monetary economic system) are manipulated by humans who in turn are being controled at a higher level by invisible technological processes of cybernetics. A generalized model of technological control and cybernetic government — the cutting edge of contemporary ‘conspiracy’ and cultural theory. If you follow the discourse of Zizek, Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, the occupy movement, Jean Baudrillard, simulacra, transhumanism and The Matrix movies you will gain immense insight and a philosophico-scientific account of what has been going on in the world today and the world of tomorrow.”
