Objects are evidence. If reality is the territory, then objects are on the map. Objective reality is to be compared with bureaucracy.
If reality is not objective, then how is it? Real, of course. Evidence is a map of the real. Passive, done already, laid further in the court, ready to be used in the argumentation.
Who makes the map has the power over reality, in the same way as bureaucrats have the power over the people.
The confusion between res and objectus has very concrete effects in our society.
We communicate on the net via evidence. The technical solutions are these, issued from historical reasons, like wars and analytic philosophy.
We are discontent about the lack of privacy of evidence.
Objects as evidence of happiness are not the same as happiness. We are discontent because objects are not enough, when we are told that they should be.
In this setting, who controls the map making mechanism, who controls the data processing, has the power.
Ultimate bureaucracy presented as the unique way. As the only real way. A lie.
