Leaving impotentiality behind: Notes towards indifference
What's needed is not representation, and even far less absence, but a putting-into-practice of radical social war, a rejection in all forms of the being of banality.The compulsive normalization proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with rupture. It is necessary to commence in secret; not to dream of new ways to make demands, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each smashed window. Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our festivals of negation, we offer neither criticism nor sympathy but only our derision. To those who deride the inoperative ecstasy in a car set aflame or a c-clamped pushbar, we propose nothing less than to reject their pathetic mobilization, by any means necessary.
Every moment of friendship is a refusal to be productive, a blow against the teleology of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the singular structure inherent in the articulation of multiplicities. Our need to desire is less the realization of a concept than the construction of a state of exception. In the articulation of encounters, we negate those who would have us give up the immanent joy of insurrection for the catastrophe of totality. This is a call to zones of indistinction which need no justification, not an insistence on activism.
What's needed is not representation, and even far less absence, but a putting-into-practice of radical social war, a rejection in all forms of the being of banality. We must shatter all humanism—absolutely.AGAIN
