In such a context there could be no more pressing responsibility today than to think ‘another space for democracy. ). ’ What can it mean to ‘remember’ a ghost? This question is puzzling only from within a space of thinking ‘controlled or fixed by the simple opposition of presence and absence, actuality and inactuality, sensuous and supersensible’, etc. (SoM, 163). For in truth, as a possibility or an expectation, the ghost is always already there, and so it can and must be remembered even if it poses the difficulty of what it means to ‘remember’ 24 democracy something, or someone, that is never and has never been not present.

Events defined in terms of presence, which happen outside the text, outside ‘the ordeal of undecidability’ (SoM, 75), leave no room for decision-making and hence no room for responsibility. Wrapped in the security of an historical date attached to an actual place, metaphysical events ask ideally to be described rather than interpreted.

Marx’s promise of an actual future to come, of a world in which power and wealth would be redistributed according to notions of equality and equity, has not yet been realized, but it is precisely the promisory and not the predictive power of his political projection that is the measure of its democratic force.
