Foucaul is another deity but then we read a quote like below...

In every society the production of discourse is
at once controlled, selected, organized and
redistributed according to a certain number of
procedures, whose role is to avert its powers and
dangers, to cope with chance events, to evade its
ponderous, awesome materiality.

Y-YMichel Foucault, The Archeology of Knowledge

I personally thought the production of discourse
is managed principally to administer the social
structure? To make sure the guy goes to work to
make the nuts that fit the bolts that run the
pump that milks the cow whose milk will be in the
store in a few days so that children will grow up
healthy?

In Foucault's text I see the following words as a
smokecreeen; "the production of discourse is at
once controlled, selected, organized and
redistributed". This could be shortened to
"manage" yet it's eloborately structure to
distract full attention from his following
statement,
that discourse is managed "to evade its dangers,
ponderous, awesome materiality".

Don't you think Foucault was projecting
unconscious personal issue such as a real or
imagined fear of discourse? Yes danger is
present in all matters but the real meaning of
discourse is surely not to evade itself?

EXCERPTS FROM A CAT'S DIARY

DAY 752 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little
dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced
to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of
escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional
piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.

DAY 761 - Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their
feet while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the
top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile
oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite
chair . . . must try this on their bed.

DAY 765 - Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in
attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to
strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about
what a good little cat I was . . . Hmmm. Not working according to
plan.

DAY 768 - I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good
reason I was chosen for the water torture. This time however it
included a burning foamy chemical called "shampoo." What sick minds
could invent such a liquid. My only consolation is the piece of thumb
still stuck between my teeth.

DAY 771 - There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I
was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear
the noise and smell the foul odor of what they call "pizza." More
importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of
"allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my
advantage.

DAY 774 - I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe
snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to
return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand has
got to be an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain
he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal
room his safety is assured. But I can wait, it is only a matter of
time...
