The Spirit of Terrorism
And, Requiem for the Twin TowersBook - 2002
Baudrillard here argues that until September 11 we had had no symbolic event on a world scale that marked a setback for globalization itself. With the terrorist attacks, we are confronted, says Baudrillard, with the pure event which concentrates in itself all the events which have never taken place. And we had all dreamt of this event, he says, because it was impossible not to dream of the destruction of American monopolistic power.
