Leaving normalization behind: Notes on social war
Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our orgies of negation, we offer neither sympathy nor dialogue but only our scorn.In the elaboration of multiplicities, we shatter those who would have us give up the singular joy of indifference for the misery of banality. To those who deride the inoperative ecstasy in a smashed window or a c-clamped pushbar, we propose nothing less than to negate their pathetic fossilization of our desires, at all costs. This is a call to crisis, not an insistence on absence. Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our orgies of negation, we offer neither sympathy nor dialogue but only our scorn.
It is necessary to commence in secret; not to dream of new ways to organize, but to make manifest the subterranean communes in the heart of each car set aflame. Every burning dumpster is a refusal to make demands, a blow against the logic of the mileu, a recognition of the immanent teleology inherent in the articulation of encounters. The homogenous mobilization proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with rupture. Our need to desire is less the setting forth of a project than the realization of an event.
We must destroy all humanism—absolutely. What's needed is not activism, and even far less passivity, but a putting-into-practice of radical zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the structure of representation.AGAIN
