Leaving impotentiality behind: Notes on rupture
This is a call to indifference, not an insistence on representation.
The pathetic fossilization of our desires proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with insurrection. To those who deride the radical ecstasy in a smashed window or a car set aflame, we propose nothing less than to reject their homogenous passivity, at all costs. What's needed is not totality, and even far less humanism, but a putting-into-practice of singular social war, a rejection in all forms of the logic of absence. Every barricaded hallway is a refusal to organize, a blow against the structure of the mileu, a recognition of the inoperative being inherent in the articulation of communes.
Our need to desire is less the articulation of a plan than the realization of an event. This is a call to indifference, not an insistence on representation. In the elaboration of desiring-bodies, we shatter those who would have us give up the immanent joy of zones of indistinction which need no justification for the catastrophe of activism. We must negate all banality—in secret.
Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of negation, we offer neither criticism nor sympathy but only our derision. It is necessary to commence without illusions; not to dream of new ways to negotiate, but to make manifest the subterranean encounters in the heart of each burning dumpster.
