Leaving impotentiality behind: Notes towards insurrection
To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a burning dumpster or a barricaded hallway, we propose nothing less than to destroy their pathetic totality, without looking back.To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a burning dumpster or a barricaded hallway, we propose nothing less than to destroy their pathetic totality, without looking back. This is a call to rupture, not an insistence on passivity. It is necessary to commence absolutely; not to dream of new ways to be productive, but to make manifest the subterranean zones of offensive capacity in the heart of each smashed window. We must reject all normalization—without illusions.
Every moment of friendship is a refusal to make demands, a blow against the temporality of the bureaucrats of revolt, a recognition of the radical logic inherent in the articulation of desiring-bodies. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our festivals of negation, we offer neither sympathy nor criticism but only our contempt. Our need to occupy everything is less the elaboration of a plan than the construction of a state of exception. The compulsive banality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with social war.
In the realization of becomings, we negate those who would have us give up the inoperative joy of zones of indistinction which need no justification for the catastrophe of humanism. What's needed is not mobilization, and even far less activism, but a putting-into-practice of singular crisis, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of fossilization of our desires.AGAIN
