Consider that our global system of trade involved with semantic economy may be based on a system of blame. Or, more properly stated, those who make the most money, the tally of systemic “goodness”, are those who are best able to displace blame from themselves. Titles, invoked with all institutions, thus are a systemic firewall by which the individual is established as a ‘master’ of deferring blame onto another, of using the system most effectively.
We might find theoretical correspondence with Deleuze and Guattari’s metaphysical response: the individual becomes schizophrenic as a means to deal with this ontologically-ethical compromise. Bodiless, or, a body without organs, the agent-identity fully embodied by the transcendent ideal of systemic forgiveness never fully off-sets the existential actuality. The psyche thus “splits” into many pieces, which can be assembled in many ways. An individual never has a body let alone any organs that proceed to do any substantial or viable function in themselves, sense, any of those assemblages can be reassembled to take in or produce or reproduce anything else. Hence, a kind of ordained and permitted psychosis￼￼￼.
The standard method of empirical research, embedding ones position in a proper lineage of other people’s ideas, a method of becoming indoctrinated into believing, exacting, performing the dis-embodiment. As I say, The modern religion.￼x
