As an example, consider how an emotional habitus that generates fear of terrorism can enhance a regime’s power to regulate and control its population. This ability to evoke affective states and emotions, as well as to establish and enforce norms about feelings and their expression—the power of an emotional habitus—is a dimension of power that we tend to overlook. But that ability may be more than useful; it may actually be a requirement for the operation of some forms of power.
