GUERRA, Andréa Máris Campos  and  ARANHA, Mariana da Costa. War, time and memory: two notes on the brazilian youth mortality. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp. 23-31. ISSN 2359-0769.

The paper proposes two notes to analyze the rivalry among young people in the illicit drugs' micro-trafficking from an interface between psychoanalysis and anthropology. For this, we use the notion of time and memory. In the first note, we work the hypothesis that the rivalry would have the function of connecting past and future by the vengeance. Because through vengeance the teenagers could get an inscription in time and a brand coined in history, which is perpetuated through memory. The second note discuss the circuit of deaths in the micro-trafficking including the know how that the teenagers develop to treat the mechanism of exclusion in which they are. In this sense, our hypothesis is that the death plays a structural role in the life of these youngs' system and comprises a positivity. From it, with it, they can achieve lifestyles to write their presences in the city, although maintain the death on the horizon. Upon appointment by the official records of the power devices, young people gain a public registration, while cancel out themselves on writing their own names in the history of mankind. So, at risk of death in the drug war that they took part, young people seem to crave not death, but the inclusion of a marginal writing, which does not win record in the language of the Other social.
