By Michael K. Middleton

The results of part a century of intensified procedures of neoliberal
globalization announce themselves in transforming into inequalities in prosperous facilities of worldwide
trade and in impoverished websites populated by way of exploited groups and assets.
Political upheavals, social marginalizations, and fiscal insecurities brought through
these disasters in either the worldwide South and the worldwide North represent a tenuous
common floor among varied collectivities of fight.
This dissertation takes this strength 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 through
communities within the worldwide North and international South contest and avoid the stipulations of
neoliberalism, and what kinds of political id, collective identifications, and
micropolitical energy are invented in those struggles.
To resolution those questions, Deleuze and Guattari’s “State-form” and “war-machine” are mobilized as severe instruments for conceptualizing how neoliberalism
universalist assumptions are manifested in singular occasions. specific realization is
given to the universally-singular expressions of fabric poverty, differential inclusion,
and subordination wrought via neoliberal globalization, and the demanding situations those
conditions create for theorizing universal topoi of oppositional discourse, together with
identity, collectivity, and gear.

Synthesizing these sites to draw conclusions about the potential for anti-neoliberal globalization politics is valuable for several reasons. First, coupling these two studies addresses the dearth of attention to relationships between globality and locality in communication scholarship. This is especially important given Shome and Hegde’s observation that “local places can influence and enable events with rather significant global effects,” and that attention to these local places help map “the shifting faultlines of economic and cultural power…and the scale and speed at which these lines are…producing…new configurations of power, and new places of dis/empowerment that cannot be equated with any other period in history” (Shome and Hegde 2002, 175).

However, as critics suggests, this focus on rhetoric as a resource of movements proved a significant challenge for accounting for less traditional forms of social protest.  28 Instead, Sillars suggests an organic approach to identifying movements for analysis suggesting that “movements …are collective actions which are perceived by a critic.
