Example text

Your language is dead. It is forbidden. It is not permitted to speak your mountain language in this place…. You may not speak it. It is outlawed. You may only speak the language of the capital.

The clenched fist embodies the force of law—the force that is law—and tacitly acknowledges both the repressive and the ideological forms of violence exercised by the Other in its drive to “unite” desire and the law. A concrete image of this force, the fist guarantees that the subject will “freely” offer up her desire to the Other’s law. If the law must resort to the fist in order to produce subjectivity as subjection, such aggression finds its justification in the subject’s acquiescence to the violence directed against her.
