When Althusser describes a repressive power which need not even make a show of itself in order to be efﬁcient, Žižek claims that one further step should be taken. Materialist philosophy should do what Althusser fails to do: conceive of a materiality without matter. Such a power would not only not have to show its tanks, it does not even need to have any. Again, one may feel inclined to ask here: Why should that theoretical choice be a priori better? How do we know that philosophical materialism has to have this goal (or, for that matter, any other)?
