Sample text

If a boat transporting the latter object sinks and the object itself is washed up on an isolated island (perhaps with no electricity) and used/positioned as, say, a household ornament, then the latter is precisely what it is. 9 In parallel, of course, whilst I may be able to use a hammer or run and jump whatever the context, that does not mean that my community is ready to identify me as a builder or an athlete. , however they are actually identified and irrespective of whether the other enabling [technological] conditions are in place), whereas the latter individuals do not have the capacities to function as judges and princesses etc.

Either way, wherever positional powers are involved, some positioned individuals stand to lose out (or at least perceive themselves to be liable to lose out) from impending change, whatever its form. Consequently there is always the potential for change to be resisted where the ability to do so exists or is developed. Thus, any actual change will depend not just upon the causal capacities of new technological products, or even upon the ingenuity with which they are handled, but also, and especially, with how they are received in specific communities.

It is this: the newly developed technological products are far more mobile than before, mobile enough indeed to be easily moved around the globe, and now far more so than their human counterparts. Although both technological products and human beings have the causal capacities to move anywhere and have capacities that can be utilised in any situation where the technologically supporting and positional conditions are right, human beings, for many reasons – desires, contrasting local work conditions, family obligations, immigration controls, nationalism, language barriers, cultural grounding, fear, commitments in general – either chose not to be, or are prevented from being, as mobile in fact as technological products have recently become.
