Affirmative nomadology aims to distinguish modes of social organization and interaction that represent experimental alternatives to Death-State citizenship. Improvisational jazz thus far has served as a prime example of nomad social organization and dynamics, considering it demonstrates coherence generated internally, from the bottom up, instead of being imposed in a top-down fashion from on high. This chapter then examines other existing experiments in nomad social organization, including nomadism in enterprise management, in neighborhood organizations, and in Internet development. It cites Walter Benjamin’s “Critique of Violence” in explaining the role of affirmative nomadology in the abolishment of the old social order.

Keywords:   affirmative nomadology, social organization, nomadism, enterprise management, neighborhood organization, internet development, Critique of Violence
