Re: <nettime> please kill me [4x: sanborn, simpson]

If this is a reference to me, then I'm not sure I recognise it.  I didn't
challenge the veracity of the information.  What I'm trying, with little
success, clearly, is to invite people to tell us why they think that some
lives are 'unworthy of living'.

Is a contribution from Agamben's perspective unhelpful? I don't think so,
not least because I don't see the American right and their 'right-to-life'
position as any less driven by a bio-political determination to situate
population control as central to governance.
