Prison abolitionist theorist and ex-prisoner with background in queer theory and union organising. Understanding the global prison-industrial complex allows for an explicated elucidation of contemporary statist and corporatist modes of control. Various sadomasochistic hysterias, fear of the Other along with repulsion/desire-for the abject/sublime contour 'ordinary' subjectivities against 'the criminal.' Spectres of non-state criminality haunt 'the public imagination' whilst statist and corporatist power engage in accepted criminality on a grand scale. Hypocritically the elite undermine the very notions they purport to uphold. This is the thesis of my forthcoming book, Prison As Power.
