One may observe a fundamental disjuncture that occurred in the operation of power by the West in governing the Third World population since the Second World War. Pre-war management was based on exercise of sovereign power by the former colonial masters; post-colonial or contemporary power is exercised through the production of self-governing docile subjects, who internalize Western ideals as their own. This form of subjugation is more subtle and effective than colonial governance. This article uses the development planning process in Bangladesh as an example to demonstrate how that process enables the deployment of endless institutions and strategies for development to bring the general masses under disciplinary control.
