However, the analyses of ideology that I have just described partly challenge this picture. In particular, the formation of resistant subjectivity—which critical pedagogy describes as a positive project of articulation—may in the first instance take place as a collapse of regimes of identity, as the ideological supports that sustain our coherence to ourselves and others give way. Empowerment may then not be the effect of an increase in subjectivity but instead may depend first on the experience of a basic crisis within it (Kumashiro, 2001).
Indeed, the emphasis on competition, markets, and entrepreneurialism in neoliberalism, for Foucault, is not, in fact, an ideological position in favor of unbridled capitalism but rather a conceptual-practical schema for government—of states, collectives, and individuals. The proliferation of the logic of capital, and the strategies that accompany it, beyond the “economy” in a narrow sense to the spheres of politics, education, and everyday life indicates the far-reaching ambition of neoliberalism as a project that seeks to reorganize governments, societies, and selves—not just ideologically in favor of the market, but as always themselves agents in markets.
Hidden behind the sober tones and technical rhetoric of austerity’s pronouncements, however, is the actual psychosis of late capitalism—whose elites binge on dispossession and despoliation as global society is pushed to the brink. Thus, as austerity works materially to fleece populations globally, it works ideologically to sanctify an unsustainable and irrational mode of social production. Drawing out the difficult implications here, I believe that austerity reveals to us the way that capitalism is not only a murderous system but also, in fact, a suicidal one—and even a sociocidal one.
