Deconstruction focuses on the non-egalitarian political orientation of the liberal nation-state, seen in its language, in the law and in its basic premises – such as the priority of the individual and the impartiality of the public sphere – in order to problematise the injustices to which minorities are subjected. However, this deconstructive movement is not for correcting the state, which, as Badiou defines, ‘has nothing to do with justice, for the State is nota, subjective and axiomatic figure… any programmatic or State definition of justice changes the latter into its contrary: justice becomes the harmonization of the interplay of interests’ (ibid: 73).

The binary is a socially constructed category whose trajectory warrants investigation in terms of how it was constituted, regulated, embodied and contested, rather than taken as always already present. A bipolar construction might be addressed fruitfully and productively as an object of analysis and a tool of deconstruction; that is as a means of investigating the conditions of its formation, its implication in the inscription of hierarchies, and its power to mobilise collectivities (Brah 2003: 184).

Disappropriation of the proper name is therefore the originary violence of  the self on others. ‘Hence, a non-appropriative respect for others serves as the ethical limit’ (Sokoloff 2005). The originary violence, in fact, stems from the violation of this ethical limit that creates a violent classification, in which the other loses its power to identify itself and becomes an object. The originary violence is the self ’s treatment of the other as if it was merely an object. In criticising the objectification of the other, Derrida argues that when we relate the other as itself, rather than as pure other of ourselves ‘then something incalculable comes on the scene, something which cannot be reduced to the law or to the history of legal structures’ (1997: 18).
