Democracy

Hardt and Negri remember that in the same net where the power exerts its domain, multitude acts with the purpose to create an alternative global society. Therefore, the anti-power of the multitude uses the same strategies that the power: fluidity, inconstncia and multiplicity in an extraterritorial space. Currently, the militancy through the Internet, that bets in the decentralized, desterritorializada action and in net of the multitude, is configured as an important tool for that they act as a lawyer in favor of the democracy, despite this resource also comes being used for fundamentalist groups and of right boundary line to propagate its ideas. The action undertaken by means of blogs, fruns and messages propagated in the Internet, many times of anonymous form, had to its collective character can most be understood when associated to the concept of rizoma that it appears in Deleuze and Guattari: rizoma connects a point any with another point any and each one of its traces necessarily does not send the traces of same nature; (…) It is not made of units, but of dimensions, or before directions moving. It does not have start nor end, but always a way for which it grows and overflows. (DELEUZE; GUATTARI, 1995, P. 32) the certainty of that ' ' we are more intelligent juntos' ' it makes of the resistance modality that we observe in the Web, that if it shows pparently disarrenged what had been coordinated, a force practically impossible to be contained by the mechanisms of tracking and control of the Empire.

The attack in net presents as something similar to a swarm of birds or insects in a terror film, a multitude of attacking irrationals, strangers, uncertain, invisible unexpected. If to analyze the interior of a net, however, will see that effectively it is organized, rational and creative. It has the intelligence of the swarm.

In the Bahia, the inheritance escravocrata until today reproduces gestures and words that segregate. Already I testified people rubbing the indicating finger in the arm, to mention itself to a black, as if the color of the citizen explained a blameworthy attitude. In one of the colloquies that I had with Miriam journalist Pig, it commented: – Brazil likes if imagining as a racial democracy, but this is an illusion. We have a march of carnival, made we have 40 years, sung until today. it is terrible. The whites never think about what they are singing. The letter says the following one: ' ' Your hair does not deny, mulata Because you are mulata in the color But as the color does not catch, mulata Mulata, wants yours amor' '. ' ' He is ofensivo' ' , Miriam says.

As the color of somebody could contaminate, as was illness? the people never perceive. The expression ' ' foot in cozinha' ' , to assign the African ancestry, it is most common of all, and also said without the lesser constragimento. It is the return to the mentality escravocrata, reproducing mazelas of senzala. The cronista Rubem Alves published this week in the Leaf of So Paulo an article in which standes out: ' ' Words are not innocent, them they are weapons that the powerful ones use to wound and to dominate the weak ones. The North American whites had invented the word ' niger' to humiliate the blacks. They had created a trick that had one thus versinho: ' Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, catch to niger by the toe' that he wants to say, a Creole for the dedo of the foot grasps (in Brazil, when it wants yourself to diminish a black, it is used here Creole word). In denunciation to this offensive use of the word, the blacks cunharam the slogan ' black is beautiful'.
