This admonition has, in some instances, provoked one problem and a consequence.

This is also known in pragmatics as the question of “linguistic competence”—who is allowed to speak about a subject matter or who can partake in the debate? On security issues though, with very few exceptions, not a very sharp line can be drawn between those who can and those who cannot (see Bigo 2000; Doty 1998–1999). Nonetheless, in empirical ways, it can be argued that many discourses can readily marshal the assent of a target audience as a result of the audience’s asymmetric access to information.

Here, Austin’s (1962) text is often cited in conjunction with Derrida (1977: 172–97). Interestingly, Searle’s (1977a) response to Derrida, which regards this use of speech act as inappropriate, is ignored. 30 On security as a symbol, see Wolfers (1962). 31 See Forguson (1969: 127–47); Eckard (1990: 147–65). 32 This is another way of saying that in discourse actors do not ignore conflict, but integrate it in a consensus. That is to say that the chief aim of discursive exchanges is not to dissolve dissensus, but to create a space wherein such differences can be dealt with.
