“On the Government of the Faceless and the Deathless” | our digital future

In Critical Legal Thinking an article by Giorgio Agamben on the future of mankind was published, On the Government of the Faceless and the Deathless. Amongst other things he writes:

The planetary project that governments try to impose is, therefore, radically unpolitical. It proposes instead to eliminate every genuinely political element from human existence, to replace it with a governmentality based only on algorithmic control

He ends with saying that a faceless society, a society without a past and without physical contact, is a society of ghosts and as such doomed to a more or less rapid ruin. I agree with that. Artificial intelligence will make the world uninhabitable for humans.
