Both insurrection and resurrection derive from the same Latin root through which we obtain the word surge. It is the power of resurrection that eventually decides the minute of insurrection. A genealogy of the political yields the truth of this resurrection power, by which the militant is eminently sustained. It also reveals the insurrectionary moment. That is the task of political theology today amid the enveloping crisis of liberal democracy.
