With all the danger that this power (that of closing the wound, the crisis) entails for the balance of the liberal scheme, the mass public conversation is the scene of India Phone Number List that attempt to close it. I believe that the irruption of digital technology has for the first time given freedom of expression the possibility of being the vehicle for that pending desire. With all the danger that this power (that of closing the wound, the crisis) entails for the balance of the liberal scheme, the mass public conversation is the scene of that attempt to close it. torrent of expressiveness From this point of view, it would be convenient to reinterpret all the criticisms of the mass public conversation after India Phone Number List the advent of the internet.
The tendencies that are dismissed as merely narcissistic, identitarian or polarizing can have a deep political meaning. Mass public conversation is, after all, the area of freedom India Phone Number List of expression that expands to take care of the desires that the liberal scheme, in its crises, could not accommodate. The multiplication of the spaces of appearance implied by the universal implantation of conversational devices (computers and smartphones) has managed to infiltrate the political into all spheres of life, even those that have traditionally been India Phone Number List considered domestic or private. There seems no longer to be any garden where we can stand aside, Thus, mass public conversation produces a hyperpolitical society , in which everything can be interpreted in terms of ideologies or polarities (friend/enemy).

The mass public conversation would also India Phone Number List represent the return of the old repressed, the return of that "theater where freedom is shown" in which we all want to participate and that floods everything. With this transformation of freedom of expression from a negative freedom to a positive one, perhaps we are experiencing the consummation or the end (we don't know yet) of the already old freedom of the moderns.
