Ten Years of Terror: Michael Hardt

presented by Michael Hardt

What’s most sig­nif­i­cant about September 11th ten years on I think is the illu­sion that it cre­at­ed of the end of pol­i­tics. By the end of pol­i­tics I mean the notion that force could rule. That ter­ror could effectively…be suf­fi­cient for pow­er. And this was an illu­sion I think that was rec­og­niz­able at the time of September 11th but almost impos­si­ble to say. Almost impos­si­ble to say because of a vari­ety of con­di­tions of the dra­mat­ic nature of the event, and also of the forces of pow­er that are arraigned with it.

Ten years of the War on Terror I think has to be locat­ed also in the con­text of more than ten years of lib­er­al wel­fare since 1989, and the dis­so­lu­tion of the Soviet Union, and the end of the Cold War structures.

For me…human secu­ri­ty is say­ing an Afghan life is equal to a British life. And our secu­ri­ty is guar­an­teed by con­tribut­ing to a glob­al secu­ri­ty that treats all humans as equal. That’s some­thing very very dif­fi­cult for politi­cians to grasp. Partly because they still live in an old-fashioned world where they’re afraid if they use words like human secu­ri­ty” they’ll sound soft.

Few con­cepts have seized our polit­i­cal imag­i­na­tion in the last decade like secu­ri­ty. Few con­cepts have mobi­lized us to engage so many extra­or­di­nary mea­sures, to ded­i­cate so much mon­ey, and to change the lives of so many peo­ple as secu­ri­ty. And the con­cept of secu­ri­ty has not at all remained sta­ble. It has­n’t remained at all aloof or untouched by this process.

A decade on, the vio­lence of September the 11th, 2001 still haunts the lib­er­al imag­i­nary of threat. And I guess by this what I mean is that the vio­lence of that fate­ful day now under­writes all forms of lib­er­al secu­ri­ty gov­er­nance, glob­al­ly. And I think this in many ways is of course under­stand­able. I per­son­al­ly find myself some­times deeply trou­bled by that fate­ful predica­ment faced by those peo­ple who decid­ed to take their own lives on that hor­ri­fy­ing day. However in spite of this, I think our response rep­re­sents noth­ing short of a pro­found fail­ure of the polit­i­cal and the philo­soph­i­cal imagination.

The break­through moments were the moments when you suc­ceed­ed in estab­lish­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion. To a per­son in our field it’s a bit like the moment when Marconi tries to estab­lish com­mu­ni­ca­tion over the Atlantic. And you’re per­son­al­ly reen­act­ing it in your own life, doing it in a dif­fer­ent con­text using a technology.

Pay atten­tion. You can’t leave it to oth­ers. You have to pay atten­tion. That this is…while it’s in the polit­i­cal sphere, it is politi­cians talk­ing to politi­cians, try­ing to fig­ure out how to con­trol this thing. It’s in your future. It’s in all of our futures, but you’ve got more of a future than I.

The things that I designed made it so that the net­work would…you know, be self-fixing and self-organizing. There’s a lot of things that oth­er peo­ple designed that are fan­cy fea­tures that work if you’ve con­fig­ured them exact­ly right but if you make mis­takes it just will be hor­ri­ble. And so I’ve tried to talk to peo­ple like that some­times, and they claim their cus­tomers love to con­fig­ure things and they nev­er make mistakes.

When I con­tem­plate how do we get to the best pos­si­ble future of the Internet,” I am think­ing more in terms of inac­tion than action. I would like to encour­age delib­er­ate inac­tion in the form of keep­ing hands-off. I would like large com­pa­nies or nation­al gov­ern­ments to look at the Internet and say This is pret­ty cool, and if we put our hands on it and try to make it what is gonna be best for us in our life­times, it’s going to cause every­one else to do likewise.”

A lot of peo­ple actu­al­ly were involved in JPNIC but he’s quite spe­cial. He’s really…for exam­ple, even peo­ple who are not famil­iar with the details of JPNIC’s his­to­ry, many peo­ple nev­er fail to point out that he was the leader in that period.
