Leaving normalization behind: Notes on social war
Our need to desire is less the setting forth of a concept than the construction of a line of flight.To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a burning dumpster or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to shatter their compulsive humanism, at all costs. Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our orgies of destruction, we offer neither criticism nor sympathy but only our scorn. This is a call to crisis, not an insistence on activism. What's needed is not mobilization, and even far less passivity, but a putting-into-practice of singular insurrection, a rejection in all forms of the logic of representation.
The pathetic absence proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with rupture. In the realization of communes, we negate those who would have us give up the radical joy of indifference for the catastrophe of fossilization of our desires. It is necessary to commence absolutely; not to dream of new ways to make demands, but to make manifest the subterranean zones of offensive capacity in the heart of each car set aflame. Our need to desire is less the setting forth of a concept than the construction of a line of flight.
We must destroy all banality—in secret. Every c-clamped pushbar is a refusal to organize, a blow against the being of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the inoperative teleology inherent in the articulation of multiplicities.AGAIN
