Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish

Among so many changes, I shall consider one: the disappearance of torture as a public spectacle. Today we are rather inclined to ignore it; perhaps, in its time, it gave rise to too much inflated rhetoric; perhaps it has been attributed too readily and too emphatically to a process of “humanization”, thus dispensing with the need for further analysis. And, in any case, how important is such a change, when compared with the great institutional transformations, the formulation of explicit, general codes and unified rules of procedure; with the almost universal adoption of the jury system, the definition of the essentially corrective character of the penalty and the tendency, which has become increasingly marked since the nineteenth century, to adapt punishment to the individual offender? Punishment of a less immediately physical kind, a certain discretion in the art of inflicting pain, a combination of more subtle, more subdued sufferings, deprived of their visible display, should not all this be treated as a special case, an incidental effect of deeper changes? And yet the fact remains that a few decades saw the disappearance of the tortured, dismembered, amputated body, symbolically branded on face or shoulder, exposed alive or dead to public view. The body as the major target of penal repression disappeared.

Followers, you never disappoint. Mere hours after I asked for someone with graphic design skillz to put together a design for anti-CPC stickers, reader lamesor sent me these beauties. I put them in the Zazzle store, and they should be posted there soon. If you don’t want to spend money, just print out the image and tape it up.

I’m contacting some independent sticker printers to see about bulk prices on bumper stickers; I’d love to forego the middleman entirely and just sell these directly. In the mean time, though, Zazzle!

If there’s another pro-choice product you want to see in the store (regular stickers,  posters, whatevs), just let me know.

If you live in New York City (or see these ads in your town), print these out and cover them. People deserve unbiased information, and we should do everything in our power to make sure that happens.
