In this short episode, Adam reads his text "Demos, Kratos, Autos, Nomos: A Fragmentary Expenditure" in which he ruminates on the etymological origins of democracy, law, and of the power of people, distinct from its reification as 'The People', which grounds the notion of representative political institutions. Adam invites us to consider the distinction between the power of people vs a People's Law, in light of notions of identity, ecstasy, discipline, and transgression.
