Representation or signification substitutes the always already absent real. Well, most of those who many label as the founders do not endorse this label. Metaphysics of Finance Economy: Executing the task of survival in its paroxysm of pure revolt implies the participation of Death-drive as the inevitable result of the risk always already present in the revolt against the Order-in-Power.
