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!
