Leaving totality behind: Notes towards social war
This is a call to rupture, not an insistence on absence.Every c-clamped pushbar is a refusal to organize, a blow against the logic of the bureaucrats of revolt, a recognition of the radical structure inherent in the articulation of zones of offensive capacity. Our need to occupy everything is less the articulation of a concept than the realization of a state of exception. 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 desiring-bodies in the heart of each burning dumpster. To those who deride the inoperative joy in a barricaded hallway or a car set aflame, we propose nothing less than to destroy their pathetic representation, at all costs.
This is a call to rupture, not an insistence on absence. We must reject all activism—without illusions. In the elaboration of multiplicities, we negate those who would have us give up the singular ecstasy of insurrection for the catastrophe of mobilization. The homogenous fossilization of our desires proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with indifference.
What's needed is not banality, and even far less passivity, but a putting-into-practice of immanent zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the temporality of humanism. Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither dialogue nor criticism but only our contempt.AGAIN
