Abstract:

This paper offers a genealogy of the politico-strategic rationality that currently underpins what I call the discourse of militant liberalism. By situating the Bush II administration’s militant foreign policy within the longue durée of liberal capitalism, it is possible to construct a more comprehensive framework for conceptualizing the tactics and technologies of liberal power – including the liberal rationale for the use of violent force. I propose that this could be investigated by probing the series: liberty, security, property and argue that the liberal ‘art of government’ is expressly designed to secure property and its evolving interpretations rather than human life. However, the technologies of force deployed by agencies of liberal power are not simply mobilized to repress and destroy populations but more importantly, to invest in and reproduce liberal forms of lifestyle and governmentality. The transnationalization of liberal forms of governmentality, it is further argued, is intimately linked up with the transnationalization of capital and its accumulation.

In this sense all the world's assets are potentially within reach of capitalization but the major force impeding this are illiberal forms of governmentality that do not recognize the dominant subjectivity of capital and instead compromise or frustrate the operations of capital. Thus militant liberal forms of governmentality might be said to have at least two modes of articulation ­ defensive and offensive. The first involves tactics to protect property against encroachment while the second
