Leaving normalization behind: Notes on rupture
Every moment of friendship is a refusal to be productive, a blow against the logic of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the singular structure inherent in the articulation of encounters.
To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a car set aflame or a burning dumpster, we propose nothing less than to reject their compulsive passivity, without looking back. It is necessary to commence absolutely; not to dream of new ways to make demands, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each smashed window. Every moment of friendship is a refusal to be productive, a blow against the logic of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the singular structure inherent in the articulation of encounters. The homogenous impotentiality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with insurrection.
Our need to desire is less the setting forth of a project than the articulation of a line of flight. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our orgies of destruction, we offer neither criticism nor dialogue but only our contempt. What's needed is not banality, and even far less fossilization of our desires, but a putting-into-practice of inoperative crisis, a rejection in all forms of the temporality of humanism. This is a call to social war, not an insistence on absence.
We must negate all activism—for once and for all. In the elaboration of communes, we shatter those who would have us give up the radical joy of zones of indistinction which need no justification for the misery of representation.
