The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man o every citizen may accordingly speak, write, and print with freedom but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law  Article 3. The principle of all sovereignty resides essentially in the nation o No body nor individual may exercise any authority which does not proceed directly from the nation o The quality or state of being sovereign, or of having authority over your own conduct o Supreme independent power of authority in government as possessed or claimed by a state or community Swarm Intelligence (Michael Hardt)  Analogy, Derived from the collective behavior of animals  To describe doing things in multiple (swarm of bees, ants)  All members of the multitude  Collective intelligence made by each individual agent  Emerging from communication  Polis: state or society especially when characterized by a sense of community  Thinks that cause when they have the same objective as a large group of organisms  Related to social network theory  Derived from Karl Marx however responding to contemporary politics  Not a multitude of mindless zombies  Swarms are smart, created, fight an authority or power distributed across networks  A “distributed network” of actions with an enemy  An intelligent system with no central control  Does not equal anarchy  Ex. Flash mob  “to swarm around structures of domination”  “a network tide of coercive counter-power”  each “agent” in the swarm is different o creative individuals  organisms never just individuals and never just groups  the behavior of the organism is the intersection of individual, group, and environment  organisms= life  life= living or being lived  living at the heart of new battles and new economic realities  Biopower! Swarm Intelligence/Biopower  Both members of multitude  Directly modeled from Michel Foucalt (work anticipated new form if bio-politics) o Influenced feminist theory o Disability studies o Counter powers to governmental authority  Bio-politics are forms of theory  Forms of action and activism  Common goal to combine knowledge (science and reason), power, desire and institutional control  The combination Knowledge, desire, and disciplinary control that were originally conceptualized to define bio-power  Played out in schools, hospitals, and prisons defined by bio- power and centralized govt. Biopower  The modern person is an animal whose politics place his or her existence in living  Multitude: large numbers of people, large gathering of people Empire (Antonio Negri) AND Swarm (Michael Hardt)  Political order of globalization  A universal order that accepts no boundaries or limits  Draws on elements of US Constitutionalism with its tradition of hybrid identities and expanding frontiers  Hybrid identities  Expanding frontiers  Swarm is political action taken by the subjects of Empire/ globalization  New conceptions of identity and difference  Identities and attacks ongoing and new forms of racism  They are fighting new forms of racism  New networks of communication and control  New paths of migration
