Leaving fossilization of our desires behind: Notes towards rupture
What's needed is not absence, and even far less passivity, but a putting-into-practice of singular indifference, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of banality.
Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither criticism nor sympathy but only our contempt. Our need to desire is less the setting forth of a project than the realization of a state of exception. The pathetic impotentiality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with zones of indistinction which need no justification. It is necessary to commence without illusions; not to dream of new ways to negotiate, but to make manifest the subterranean multiplicities in the heart of each barricaded hallway.
To those who deride the radical joy in a smashed window or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to negate their compulsive activism, with every weapon at our disposal. Every c-clamped pushbar is a refusal to make demands, a blow against the being of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the inoperative temporality inherent in the articulation of encounters. What's needed is not absence, and even far less passivity, but a putting-into-practice of singular indifference, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of banality. We must destroy all normalization—absolutely.
In the elaboration of zones of offensive capacity, we shatter those who would have us give up the immanent ecstasy of insurrection for the catastrophe of representation. This is a call to crisis, not an insistence on mobilization.
