New Order

»Chinese indentities are never totally [...] wiped out, they are carefully and continually reproduced, but always under erasure.«

Ariel Heryanto (Indonesian Chinese cultural theorist)
concludes the 30 years of ›New Order‹ politics under Suharto

»[...] violence does not consist so much in injuring and annihilating persons as in interrupting their continuity, making them play roles in which they no longer recognize themselves, making them betray not only commitments but their own substance [...].«

Emmanuel Lévinas
