By Michael K. Middleton

The results of part a century of intensified strategies of neoliberal
globalization announce themselves in starting to be inequalities in prosperous facilities of world
trade and in impoverished websites populated by way of exploited groups and assets.
Political upheavals, social marginalizations, and monetary insecurities brought through
these disasters in either the worldwide South and the worldwide North represent a tenuous
common flooring among varied collectivities of fight.
This dissertation takes this capability universal flooring among disparate
communities marginalized by way of neoliberalism as a terrain on which to discover attainable
solidarities among those ‘singularities of struggle.’ It asks how neighborhood struggles waged by means of
communities within the worldwide North and international South contest and dodge the stipulations of
neoliberalism, and what kinds of political id, collective identifications, and
micropolitical strength are invented in those struggles.
To resolution those questions, Deleuze and Guattari’s “State-form” and “war-machine” are mobilized as serious instruments for conceptualizing how neoliberalism
universalist assumptions are manifested in singular occasions. specific recognition is
given to the universally-singular expressions of fabric poverty, differential inclusion,
and subordination wrought through neoliberal globalization, and the demanding situations those
conditions create for theorizing universal topoi of oppositional discourse, together with
identity, collectivity, and tool.
