Protocol is a shared communication agreement: a named sequence of expressions, describing actions across real and virtual spaces to be performed to a completion. It is always about the organization of a potentiality space, about creating and organizing a space of potential action and thought. We think politics has moved on the level of protocols. It is the only way to organize and govern in the condition of the arbitrary sign (semiotic inflation; post-truth).
