One of the subterranean currents animating Agamben’s Homo Sacer concerns the way Agamben consciously or unconsciously performs the same “bracketing operation” around the colonial question as Schmitt, in order to foreground the Nazi concentration camp as the realization of modernity.

Schmitt underlines this necessary displacement of civil and religious war in Europe to overseas conquest and colonization during this period, through the creation of amity lines or geopolitical divisions among the European powers and their respective spheres of influence outside Europe:.

It also allows us to see the dual formation of laborers and Christian subjects by missions and congregaciones designed to reach the Indians displaced by war, those sent to the mines, those made slaves, those allocated to encomiendasthose who remained just outside them ; and the degree to which political theology became subject to economic calculation the very definition of contraband, corruption, and venality as well as tierga resistance or the question of cultural “hybridity.
