The other sie of the Liberal coin

These are simply the other side of the liberal coin. As Focuault argues in The Birth of Biopolitics, “there is no liberalism without a culture of danger.”[4] Dangerousness is the primary concept through which liberalism can extend itself: the more you "live dangerously," the more you expose yourself to danger and take risks, the more your freedom is maximized.

 The “ethnology a  branch of anthropology that analyzes cultures
of academic reflection” signals the development of the rationality of liberal governance,

i.e. the ways that questions are framed and categories of analysis deployed when a liberal solution is sought to address social, political, and economic problems.

It is this rationality, through “the ethnology of academic reflection on so-called primitive populations,” that allows the concept of danger to acquire its cultural and political dimension
