El sentido de la politica/ de ser y hacer politicas

"We are not outside of politics when we are dispossessed in such ways. Rather, we are deposited in a dense situation of military power in which judicial functions become the prerogative of the military. This is not bare life, but a particular formation of power and coercion that is designed to produce and maintain the condition, the state, of the despossessed.

--Judith Butler and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. Who sings the nation-state? Language, politics, belonging. Seagull Books. London/NY/Calcuta. 2007.
