If Foucault were alive today, what would his thoughts be on the current "ecological-crisis?"
If I'm correct, he would probably say that the discourse which surrounds this topic would be the deliberate perpetuation by the bourgeoisie of falsifying scientific data about the state of our ecology.
That to blame humans as agents who are responsible for the demise of our planetary ecosystem would in effect constitute a form of "biopower".
This in effect would ultimately give the bourgeoisie absolute control over the people through the development of a juridico-political state controlled apparatus; a codification of a whole new set of laws in "defense" of "mother earth".
An example of this kind of law would be a global taxation on carbon. Those who stand in the way of such a discourse would be brought to bourgeoisie "justice".
If this form of biopower is achieved, this would be another step closer towards achieving global governance - in short complete control over every individual in society.
