Planetary Dysgovernance

When struggles around infrastructure developments appear in public against the limits of the land, water and social reproduction, the imperialism of structural adjustment by infrastructure appears takes the plain view, also in the recruitment of community into grassroots installs of corporate investment socialities. The sheer scale of present-day developments across the planet, combined with the gap left by increasing value uniformity, neutral branding, and singular vocabularies of extinction-oriented ‘best practice’, creates epistemic-political rifts and gaps of symbolic opportunity, where religious, environmental, new labour, indigenous and subaltern communities have been able to differently occupy, and challenge, in turn, the ‘fundamentalist’ dimension of late capitalist developmentalism, thus querying the category of the infrastructural itself.
