Leaving activism behind: Notes on zones of indistinction which need no justification
Our need to occupy everything is less the articulation of a concept than the construction of an event.In the realization of desiring-bodies, we shatter those who would have us give up the radical ecstasy of crisis for the catastrophe of fossilization of our desires. The compulsive impotentiality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with indifference. Our need to occupy everything is less the articulation of a concept than the construction of an event. Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our orgies of destruction, we offer neither dialogue nor criticism but only our contempt.
What's needed is not absence, and even far less mobilization, but a putting-into-practice of inoperative rupture, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of representation. To those who deride the immanent joy in a burning dumpster or a barricaded hallway, we propose nothing less than to reject their pathetic normalization, by any means necessary. 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 encounters in the heart of each smashed window. Every car set aflame is a refusal to negotiate, a blow against the being of liberalism, a recognition of the singular structure inherent in the articulation of communes.
This is a call to social war, not an insistence on totality. We must negate all passivity—without illusions.AGAIN
