University of Minnesota Press

The fourth chapter uses Hannah Arendt’s concept of the “rule by Nobody.” It is the idea of a bureaucratic system in which people no longer have accountability. The chapter uses this to explain modern U.S. surveillance and other “machinic” forms of social control. It explores the idea of social alienation and disaffection in more depth.
