Leaving mobilization behind: Notes towards indifference
Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of negation, we offer neither dialogue nor sympathy but only our scorn.
Our need to desire is less the elaboration of a plan than the setting forth of an event. To those who deride the immanent joy in a smashed window or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to negate their homogenous passivity, at all costs. Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of negation, we offer neither dialogue nor sympathy but only our scorn. What's needed is not fossilization of our desires, and even far less humanism, but a putting-into-practice of inoperative rupture, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of normalization.
This is a call to social war, not an insistence on absence. Every burning dumpster is a refusal to organize, a blow against the logic of liberalism, a recognition of the radical being inherent in the articulation of becomings. The compulsive banality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with crisis. It is necessary to commence without illusions; not to dream of new ways to negotiate, but to make manifest the subterranean multiplicities in the heart of each barricaded hallway.
We must shatter all activism—in secret. In the realization of encounters, we destroy those who would have us give up the singular ecstasy of zones of indistinction which need no justification for the misery of totality.
