    In view of the globalization principles crisis and its doubtful economic success, the author is aimed to make a contribution to the criticism of the contemporary ideologies and metaphysics. It is done by questioning the government paradigm supported by the exception, security, necessity, and a preventive and decisive authority that pretends to exorcise the current apocalyptic menace. Against the idea of a necessary deciding Executive who faces the uncertainty of our times, the author states that the driving force for political action is the achievement of a contingent desirable future image.
