dc.description.abstractWhat is the character of strategic intervention in contexts where there is a claim not only to a monopoly of the use of the means of violence but also a monopoly of secrecy? What options for resistance are available when the state extends its claim from the monopoly of violence to a monopoly of information? What is the quality and the conduct of resistance —its strategic options— when confronting not only the potential physical violence of state and corporate power but also its arcanum, the realm of secrecy and the exclusive control of access to information that it inhabits? Such questions immediately address the case of digital resistance, whether in the use of the Internet as a means for coordinating resistance or in resistant interventions carried out on the terrainoftheInternet.They assume specific urgency when it is understood that the Internet is increasingly assuming the character of an arcanum, or place where states and corporations pursue a monopoly of secrecy, which is to say, the goal of denying us our secrecy. What is a strategic intervention in a context where the state’s claim to monopolize secrecy or access to information necessarily entails the surrender of any such claim on the part of civil society?en
