Everywhere?: the present juncture
The paradigmatic subjects of global neo-liberalism are defined not by their pos-
ition in the colonial arrangement of space, but by their functionality in the building
of a world-wide market society. They are not enclosed in reform clubs, penned up
in penal colonies, or staged in street displays; but rather brought together in organi-
zations, acting purposefully, in the name of an ever-abstract humanity, ‘to bring
more orderly and reliable responses to social and political issues that go beyond the
capacities of states to address individually’ (Gordenker and Weiss, 1996: 17).
