Transcripts - Politics, Power and Resistance: Continuos Analytical Reflection

  • 1. B Y R A C H E L F O S T E R The Shrinking World: Globalization, Decoloniality and Border Thinking Neoliberalism, Politics and Society The Disciplinary and Punitive State
  • 2. We are said to be living in a globalized era, having access to all and gaining more knowledge with each passing day. Seeing the world from a a western perspective and ideologies forms the processes of globalization throughout everyday life, however globalization is a rather modern concept. It is vital to note that globalists view the world and its processes as interconnected through cultural and economic globalization. the processes of Globalization, Decoloniality and Border Thinking
  • 3. Reflections Globalization is a new world order (Bauman, 1998) the ways of thinking developed around this ideology have changed modern society as we now it. From these processes the state has been weakened by the growth and speed of not only economic but social globalization.
  • 4. Continued Analysis. Globalization is translated and interpreted to fit each individual country and their ideologies. Globalization is a broad topic covering all aspects of life, no body can escape the stereotypes of class, sex, gender, spiritual, linguistic and racial hierarchies. Objectivity is a ‘western myth’, Australia prides itself on multicultural ways of life however this ideal can be referred back to this idea of a ‘western myth, the objectivity of living ones of life without fear of judgements and racism, however this cannot be justified within western society especially Australia.
  • 5. Continued Reflection. Point Zero: a point zero view is one that hides itself behind another view like globalization hides behind the idea of westernization and colonial aspects of life. It is an argument that one could not happen without the other, enter the chicken egg dilemma, however a point zero view tries to disguise these ideals even though globalization is largely already entrenched into everyday life.
  • 6. “What arrived in America..” was already largely entrenched in everyday life. 1. Particular social changes 2. Divisons of labour 3. Systems of politico- military 4. Racial and ethnic hierarchy 5. Gender hierarchy 6. Sexual hierarchy 7. Spiritual hierarchy
  • 7. Colonial Power Matrix Sexuality Authority Subjectivity Labour Colonial Power Matrix Affects all aspects of life These are broad and entangled packages of Eurocentrism and globalization
  • 8. Case Study: The Big Sell Out Indirectly refers to the debilitating affects of globalization as it reflects on the issues of belonging to a specific religion but not another, enjoying one culture but ignoring another's. Video: The Big Sell Out Privatization affects not only corporate ways of life through economic gains but on a local level, access to water, medical assistance and public services are all affected by privatization and in turn dramatically alters societies ways of life.
  • 9. Neoliberalism: Politics and Society The role of the state is to create and preserve an institutionalized framework appropriate to such practices. Areas such as: Education Social securityHealth care Environmental pollution
  • 10. Reflection Neoliberalism works in favour of the rich within a society, and debilitating the poor through processes of privatization and economic growth encouraged by neoliberal ideologies
  • 11. Continued Reflection & Anaylsis TINA (there is no alternative) has become a commonsense framework within society Neoliberalism has a poor record on stimulating growth (David Haney 2007), even though growth is a large aspect of neoliberalism, growth refers to many life commodities such as economics. The idea of neoliberalism is to redistribute the wealth from the poor to the rich which is known as “accumulation by dispossession”, through privatization of land and property, through commodities such as water, gas and electricity.
  • 12. Case Study: When the Leeves Broke Video: When the Leeves Broke No evacuation systems set in place, city of New Orleans first evacuation ever and people were left stranded due to no possible access to leave e.g reliance of public transport.
  • 13. The Disciplinary and Punitive State Bureaucracy is a strategy rather than an institution and the growth of the industrial revolution, caused problems in lack of worker discipline.
  • 14. Reflection Reading1: state power guarantees the right to work, health and education. Jurisdiction and monopolization are essential characteristics of the modern state. The concept of bureaucracy, is found in the army, church, university, hospital and political parties. Modern economics developed through disciplinary power of government Bureaucratic control seen through technical control over work processes and disciplinary control over social relations.
  • 15. Continued Reflection & Analysis Bureaucratic control is maintained through the intensification of work and to reward behaviour rather than work to maintain control system. Obedience is based on observation of rules and of technical efficiency. Obedience is required for government itself, “punishment controlled” bureaucracy.
  • 16. Continued Reflections.. “Australia has no right to call itself a civilised democracy” It is vital that the society as a whole address the root causes of these issues such as social, political and cultural across the country. Formal apology by Kevin Rudd sparked outlook on separating Aboriginals from society even more and sparked large outspread of racism and racist behaviour.
  • 17. The Prison Industrial Complex: Lateline This is not a humane response to imprisoning people without conviction with no support or access to systems put in place to help such people as those mentioned throughout the report. Furthermore there is no immediate access to medical facilities to treat these people placed in incarceration in Alice Spring.
  • 18. Moreover the prison sector largely today has become a multi-million dollar industry investing itself into new ways of punishment without physical violence. It is known that the those in favour of the prison sector and it processes believe that imprisoning people like those in the late line investigation, will keep them from offending before an offence has even been made.
  • 19. Continued Reflection…  Lastly the notion of being watched is not only a modern phenomenon but one in which that is thoroughly entrenched within contemporary society.  Through the use of CCTV refers and communicates the feeling inmates would also experience within an the idea of panopticonism. Being watched constantly through CCTV is experienced through shopping centre’s, hospitals and university, it will not be long before cameras are installed into classroom making students feel as though they need to be model citizens while being watched constantly.  With this idea in mind, for future directions of cameras within schools, evoke the desensitization of the problem that is experienced today, children will believe it is apart of the normalcy of schooling and will in future expect it.
