Since the fall of the Berlin wall, the process of globalisation has been understood as a necessary fate. The myth of the allmightiness of the market economy, liberalisation and deregulation is revitalized. Before us, there is a phenomenon Lacan’s discourse of University, which in 20 century was firstly given as a stalinist discourse and today is given as a neo-liberal discourse of globalisation. From underneath og a seeming objectivity, a Master insists—either the Party and the Capital. Just as the utopia of the world proletarian revolution has fallen apart, the utopia of globalized capitalism and liberal democracy is also fallinf apart. The 9/11 event is opening opportunities for a construction of the field of social and political, out of the contour of the status quo. The coordinates of the possibility has changed and if we take the non-existance of the grand Autre on ourselves, then the contingence interference in the existent socio-simbolic order is possible.
