Cabrera on biopolitics: how to make people servile to their survival

Cabrera (see info about him in his blog) has an ethics based on the non-value of life. It has many consequences concerning life and survival - to do with attaching one's life to something else that is not life itself. The idea that life is a value in itself - not a mean but an end - is presented as a way to make people servile to their survival. I attempted to explore this consequence in an article that is just out. It is a biopolitics of making people's survival transcend to their lives (their choices, their ways) and therefore making one's own life alienated.
