Oikonomia

"In the eyes of authority - and maybe rightly so - nothing looks more like a terrorist than the ordinary man. (...)

Rather than the proclaimed end of history, we are, in fact, witnissing the incessant though aimless motion of this machine, whih, in a sort of colossal parody of theological oikonomia, has assumed the legacy of the providential governance of the world; yet instead of redeeming our world, this machine (true to the original escathological vocation of Providence) is leading us to catastrophe. The problem of the profanation of apparatuses - that is to say, the restitution to common use of what has been captured and separated in them - is, for this reason, all the more urgent". (G. Agamben, What is an apparatus?)
