Legal Writ

– Walter Benjamin on legal vs. mythical violence in his essay, ‘Critique of Violence’

– Benjamin and Giorgio Agamben (and Karl Schmitt and… the list is long) on law and mystification, on the state of nature & the social contract, the State/Leviathan, etc.  Primitivism and notions of “progress” are just some of what comes in the wake of these mythical-juridical terrors.
