  • The extractivist logic that underlies the current regime of datafication, algorithmic mediation and social automation is a rationality based on the exercise of multiple violences that are masked behind narratives that advocate the possibility of an ethical exercise of technological development without attacking the roots of injustice. Extractivist violence in its multiple dimensions: dispossession of territories, bodies, subjectivity, sensibility, is what sustains capitalism, the development of modernity and hegemonic socio-technical systems. For the purposes of the logic of colonial and patriarchal capital, these models establish in the common-sense conceptions of technology as technical artifacts disarticulated from bodies and territories, as materialities that exist at the margin of people and communities. Talking about extractivist violence is fundamental, firstly, to understand and make visible the different dimensions in which the hegemonic technological model is constructed as a necro-technopolitical regime. Secondly, to explore the possibilities of accessing justice and a dignified life.
