Note on the new fascisms

Two years ago we wrote the following on the question of a state fascization that is not only coming, but already exists: The “institutional preventive dispositive” that characterizes the current state, which for Poulantzas, however, also already characterized authoritarian etatism in the 1980s, has today been so smoothly and at the same time intensively ground into state and non-state apparatuses and institutions and has developed into a fundamental dispositive (alongside the official state of parliamentary democracy), that it is no longer possible to speak only of an osmosis between the preemptive dispositif and the official state, as Poulantzas still does, but of the temporary dominance of a creeping fascization process characterized by the preemptive logic, which is completely new in its structure and does not correspond to any previous historical period of statehood. Due to a specifically coded crisis scenario (the fight against terrorism) and, in particular, due to the hegemonic inscription of preventive logic, the security state, which relies entirely on executive power, is today taking political and legal measures that permanently alter the apparatus of the normal capitalist state and transform its rule of law, but without having to deny it itself.

UK: Johnson regime applies coat after coat of whitewash

UK. This week has seen applications of whitewash by Johnson and his pals that would make Dulux envious. We had the report from the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparity that said that everything was hunky dory in Britain, that institutional racism does not exist, that racism in the UK is really the result of imagination. These findings were hardly surprising. Boris Johnson appointed Tony Sewell to head up the commission, and he has long been a denier of institutional racism. Sewell, who is head of a charity, has described the Black Lives Matter movement that swept through Britain last year as a sideshow and a “lower middle class revolt”. For him, racism doesn’t exist in the workplace or in education or on the streets. Institutional racism, for him, is imaginary, whilst racism at an individual level is not what it was.
