An extract from a dialog between Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault in 1971. The topic: Human Nature: Justice versus Power. Foucault claims that “Power is not an institution, it's not a structure or a force available to some: it is the name given to a strategically complex situation in a given society”. If the centrality of a power that we can submit to or resist no longer exists, than it is impossible to seize power (if in the center there is nothing to seize). If power is reticulated, resistance must take place everywhere and in every way; if power is exercised at countless points, it must be challenged point by point.
