He keeps growing to be lack of a feeling of person and collective life ends up in a reduced skill to like oneself, and, by way of extension, others. This hindrance is seen via a sad occasion: in 2002, in Nanterre, France, Richard Durn, a neighborhood activist, stormed the city's city corridor, capturing and killing 8 humans. Durn devoted suicide the next day to come. The later e-book of Durn's his magazine published a guy being affected by the sensation that he didn't exist, for which he attempted to compensate through committing an atrocity. For Stiegler, this exemplifies how love of self turns into pathological: a "me" assassinates an "us" with which it can't determine.
