In the excerpt, Foucault Governmetality, Foucault illustrates Governmentality as
something that is developed through his lectures on biopolitics. He then expresses the early
writings on discipline and punishment. He expressed punishment as a factor that reaffirms the
power of the sovereign. Foucault perception of the government can be seen through:
"There is a problematic in government in general" (Foucault 88)
This statement can be correlated to the various statements made by Foucault in the excerpt.
Foucault wants his audience to comprehend his visuals perception of the government in a
negative manner. This statement means that the government is corrupt as it always has been
constituted by different types of problems. He perceives the government as something that has
been formulated through problems and it holds power through it's corruption. All in all, the
government is seen through a negative light within the text as it is bashed by Foucault.
