Leaving passivity behind: Notes towards zones of indistinction which need no justification
Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our festivals of destruction, we offer neither sympathy nor criticism but only our derision.In the elaboration of communes, we shatter those who would have us give up the singular joy of crisis for the catastrophe of fossilization of our desires. This is a call to indifference, not an insistence on normalization. We must destroy all absence—in secret. It is necessary to commence for once and for all; not to dream of new ways to make demands, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each barricaded hallway.
Every smashed window is a refusal to organize, a blow against the teleology of the mileu, a recognition of the radical structure inherent in the articulation of zones of offensive capacity. What's needed is not representation, and even far less banality, but a putting-into-practice of inoperative social war, a rejection in all forms of the logic of totality. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our festivals of destruction, we offer neither sympathy nor criticism but only our derision. The homogenous humanism proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with rupture.
To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a moment of friendship or a burning dumpster, we propose nothing less than to reject their compulsive activism, by any means necessary. Our need to occupy everything is less the articulation of a concept than the setting forth of a line of flight.AGAIN
