Imperialism and languages – production and hierarchisation of subjectivities
”The great industrial and financial powers […] produce not only commodities but also subjectivities […] Communication not only expresses but also organizes the movement of globalization […] by multiplying and structuring interconnections through networks […]. Language, as it communicates, produces commodities but moreover creates subjectivities, puts them in relation, and orders them.”
