Discusses the bio-power discursive system concerning the ‘Others’, specifically Deaf and disabled people, run by wealthy people, professionals and politicians. Touches upon the historical development of discourses in four stages of history showing how lay people and Deaf/disabled people have been split as the bio-power discursive system applies more specialism and professionalism. This split has serious consequences when the Deaf/disabled people disagrees with the system and wants to change it because of the four obstacles the system create.
