Re: Foucault and 'the starving millions'

Ken, can you put your friends in touch with me, I am working with a
guy in the US on building up some on line human-rights files via

Back to Foucault. He recognised the holocaust and its enormity; he
also realised that the media and political authorities lied about it
(see Afric Rights report due out later this month and a press release
available through the above address with the ICRC documentation).

Foucault criticised the existence of the State and the part such an
institution played and plays when it comes to dividing a society and
creating conditions of violence against the individual etc.

Foucault suffered from idealism and romanticism (see Iran)
but he recognised the violence inherent within the state - see
his participation in protests against the state aparatus.
