Violence en espaces hyper réels

Abstract : Living with fear, living on fear : historically, the fear of barbarians has always been exploited as a potent means of control (the mythical Hun, Norman, Jew, Soviet citizen or Arab...), as well as the fear of many different “plagues”. Today, the democracies—once created to escape these means of constraint—use computer mediated communications and digitally virtual environments that have channeled these fears into realm of hyper-real information. This fear pushes people to accept and ask for permanent violence. The process produces a destabilization of the subjects’ identity witch is in turn constrained into structured territories. In turn, this challenges their very foundations. This paper examines how these spaces are built under violence and life in hyper-reality.
