Such attacks serve to install hegemonic claims into the geopolitics of governance. In fact vertical aggregates bypass governance. They interrupt the process of governance and instead they impose a series of actions whose sole legitimisation is the simple fact that vertical aggregates have the power to do them. Consider, for instance, how the ‘coalition of the willing’, refusing the UN, split transnational space (incorporating some actors, such as Halliburton and Blackwater) and split nations (with military forces being sent to Iraq despite the strong opposition of the majority of people they are supposed to represent).
The crisis of modern sovereignty, which we described earlier, mobilises the most intimate functioning of these escaping social actors: their existence becomes globalised and their productivity in cooperatively organised transnational networks of subjectivity becomes indispensable (Atzert and Müller, 2004; Papadopoulos, 2002). But transnational sovereignty fails to integrate all these evolving spaces and capacities into a new system of transnational rights. The double-R axiom still fails to perform its function of ordering society: neither representation nor rights are powerful enough to accommodate or to address the life of the majority of people in transnational conditions.
