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