Are we truly living in an antipolitical age? Has another exercise of rule displaced social policy? If so, what kind of displacement?

Can we still count on the entitlement promises of social citizenship? What is the role of neoconservative offensive, the culture war, in the efforts to question and limit the government? In the name of ‘what’ is this self-limiting demand for government articulated? In the name of Individual? Liberty? Security? Order? Community? Morality? life?

In this anthology the ongoing governmental transformation is explored not just as a change from old to new but as a manifold process of multiple series of molecular events. In this kind of problem space displacement does not mean replacement but rather a strategic move in the micropolitical language game.
