This chapter argues that micropolitics is not a politics in miniature but a concern with the multiplicity of flows which traverse individuals and social wholes – flows that do not correspond with articulated interests, identities and institutions but operate as the unconscious machinery of desire and action. While this is fundamental to Deleuze's thought as a whole, the nature of a specific level of micropolitical association and action remains ambiguous. The chapter develops the contours of such association through a consideration of the relation between micropolitics and Foucault's conception of power, and a critique of models of radical democracy.
