LBJ! Pull out like your father should have!
was expressing on an emotional level as jokes became part of protests against American policy in Vietnam. Deep in this book, on considerations of subjectivity, there is a topic question:
What constitutes the specificity of power relations?
In a society in which officials react to secret circus stunt events, security is part of an instinct that tries to avoid panic. What happens "is not by nature the manifestation of consensus." Escalation to show resolve by calling on something called national honor is a perverse way to "seek the character proper to power relations in the violence that must have been its primitive form, its permanent secret, and last resort, that which in the final analysis appears as its real nature when it is forced to throw aside its mask and to show itself as it really is" when guys get sent to Vietnam and women and children think something strange is going on if anyone talks about it. Thank God for sex, so bisexuality can welcome out some other perverse incentive.
