Collective Tyranny (Discussion)

Auther : Michael Hardt

The cry against “tyranny” should certainly be raised today against the many dictators, military generals, and royal families that rule various countries throughout the world. Denouncing such tyranny is a political act aimed at freedom that has a long and noble tradition, stretching back to the ancients. Today we should also denounce as tyranny, however, forms of domination that do not fit easily into the classical conception but nonetheless deny freedom and equality. In addition to single tyrants, in other words, broader, plural forms of rule that are no less tyrannical- forms that we could call “collective tyranny” oppress us. The United States, for example, today plays the role of a collective tyrant, not only in Iraq and Afghanistan but throughout the world in its various endeavors that seek unilaterally to dictate the economic, political, and cultural terms of the understand the nature of this collective tyranny.
