Leaving normalization behind: Notes on social war
What's needed is not totality, and even far less mobilization, but a putting-into-practice of singular rupture, a rejection in all forms of the logic of absence.It is necessary to commence without illusions; not to dream of new ways to be productive, but to make manifest the subterranean encounters in the heart of each car set aflame. To those who deride the radical joy in a burning dumpster or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to reject their pathetic banality, at all costs. What's needed is not totality, and even far less mobilization, but a putting-into-practice of singular rupture, a rejection in all forms of the logic of absence. 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 fossilization of our desires.
Our need to occupy everything is less the setting forth of a concept than the construction of a line of flight. We must negate all passivity—in secret. Every c-clamped pushbar is a refusal to negotiate, a blow against the teleology of the bureaucrats of revolt, a recognition of the inoperative temporality inherent in the articulation of multiplicities. Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our festivals of destruction, we offer neither dialogue nor sympathy but only our derision.
The compulsive representation proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with crisis. This is a call to zones of indistinction which need no justification, not an insistence on activism.AGAIN
