Chapter Summary

This chapter is an initial exploration into the multiple ‘reals’ that the logic of zero, as manifest in Western economics, is at work in. In the spirit of postcolonial radicality and through enlisting post-Marxist psychoanalytical modes of scrutiny it seeks to disassemble the capitalist edifice, breaking apart its supposed univocity. It argues that high capital is totalising only in the field of its own speaking position. It explores neo-liberal fiscal governance as a subjectivising programme and compares it to value systems whose ontologies are outside of ‘the West’, thereby postulating that it is at the level of the subjectivisation of the individual that resistance to ‘Western’ hegemony must be thought. It argues that no longer can such resistance be posited at the level of a unitary capital vs. multiple but equally lumpen and subjugated subalterns.
