Abstract

This essay begins by delineating the conjuncture that gave the Empire trilogy its enabling conditions. Two dates have a particular and pregnant resonance, namely, 1968 and 1989, followed by another conjuncture – the financial crisis that began in 2007. Toni Negri has rightly characterized the current financialized global system as a theft of the common. I argue that overcoming it will involve a supersession of the asymmetries of power that constitute the basis of this technology of dispossession, a consideration the authors of this trilogy will need to attend to more fully.
