PSYCHOPOLITICS: THEORIZATION AGAINST CRISIS SHIQI LIN Imagine a typical day in a world metropolis today—let it be New York, San Francisco, New Delhi, Beijing, Jakarta, Brasilia, London or Berlin: when you get up and open your email box, you fi nd yourself buried in letters notated by “EMERGENCIES” and “DEADLINES” in exclamation marks.

When you open your social media, you receive advertisements customized only for you about products you have just discussed with a friend over the phone and searched online. Not only that, you see the youth on social media proudly post their DNA genetic test- ing results and photoshopped pictures of the best boba tea places they have gone to.
