Biopolitics: (verb)“The application and impact of political power on all aspects of human life”, according to Michael Foucault. In other words, biopolitics is the word to talk about the results of other’s political decisions on the physical body. You thought the end of the world was happening on your tongue. But remember the first time you experienced it? You didn’t say it hurt and you didn’t make a big fuss. It was your initiation ceremony into grown-up life and you had to behave properly. It was exciting, but you didn’t know if you wanted to try it again. And for some – as is with love, or anything truly good in life – it would either become an aversion or addiction. I’m talking about hot sauce, or as we say in Chile, salsitas picantes. In almost every South American country there are regional salsitas picantes with varying levels of spice. Some are cooked, some are fermented and some are fresh. Most include garlic, herbs or spices. And there is always a bottle or bowl on the table so you can add the necessary amount of fire to your food…and to your life.
