Hardt&Negri's Two-Headed Eagle

The emblem of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, an eagle with two heads, might give an adequate initial representation of the contemporary form of empire. But ... the two heads would have to be turned inward, each attacking the other.

The first head of the imperial eagle is a juridical structure and a constituted power, constructed by the machine of biopolitical command. The other head is the plural multitude of productive, creative subjectivities of globalization that have learned to sail on this enormous sea.
