Abstract

A reading of Golding's Lord of the Flies as an allegory of a biopolitical or postpolitical society that elevates “security” to the most sacred principle of organization as a permanent state of exception and attempts to combine it with consumerism. It is in this context that spite, an impotent and self-sacrificial violence, reemerges as a postpolitical strategy.
