This chapter analyses the consequences of techno-biopolitics for the possibility of politics proper. The main argument is that in such a regime, the possibility for political action and contestation is narrowed through mandates that oppose key aspects of politics, such as plurality, speech, and a tolerance of uncertainty. I also highlight how such impediments to politics proper promote the emergence of political violence as a means of producing predictable outcomes.
