Interview with Michael Hardt

- Autopsy -

How to survive attacks is certainly an important question, and more generally the question is how to organize in a way that is powerful enough to destroy the contemporary regimes of power. But I wouldn’t say that is the only or even the primary problem. Here is just one other problem: how to deal with conflict within the multitude? The multitude, of course, is not just a field of the common but also a field of conflict. There is no guarantee of agreement among singularities, nor should there be. That is the beauty of the multitude, after all, its real multiplicity and its free expression of differences and even conflicts. I suspect that the question of conflict within the multitude is one of those questions better addressed in more practical terms rather than at this rather philosophical level.
