Leaving absence behind: Notes towards social war
The compulsive representation proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with crisis.This is a call to insurrection, not an insistence on passivity. Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither criticism nor sympathy but only our derision. We must reject all banality—without illusions. To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a c-clamped pushbar or a barricaded hallway, we propose nothing less than to negate their pathetic fossilization of our desires, without looking back.
What's needed is not impotentiality, and even far less humanism, but a putting-into-practice of radical rupture, a rejection in all forms of the temporality of activism. In the articulation of multiplicities, we destroy those who would have us give up the inoperative joy of indifference for the catastrophe of totality. Every car set aflame is a refusal to negotiate, a blow against the logic of the mileu, a recognition of the singular being inherent in the articulation of encounters. Our need to occupy everything is less the realization of a project than the elaboration of a line of flight.
The compulsive representation proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with crisis. It is necessary to commence for once and for all; not to dream of new ways to be productive, but to make manifest the subterranean communes in the heart of each moment of friendship.AGAIN
