Leaving totality behind: Notes on social war
Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither dialogue nor criticism but only our scorn.In the construction of becomings, we reject those who would have us give up the singular joy of crisis for the catastrophe of impotentiality. Every car set aflame is a refusal to make demands, a blow against the structure of liberalism, a recognition of the radical being inherent in the articulation of desiring-bodies. What's needed is not representation, and even far less mobilization, but a putting-into-practice of immanent zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the logic of humanism. 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 multiplicities in the heart of each c-clamped pushbar.
Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither dialogue nor criticism but only our scorn. We must shatter all passivity—in secret. The pathetic activism proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with indifference. To those who deride the inoperative ecstasy in a smashed window or a burning dumpster, we propose nothing less than to negate their homogenous normalization, at all costs.
This is a call to insurrection, not an insistence on absence. Our need to occupy everything is less the realization of a project than the setting forth of a state of exception.AGAIN
