Leaving normalization behind: Notes towards insurrection
The homogenous humanism 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 be productive, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each burning dumpster. Every barricaded hallway is a refusal to make demands, a blow against the being of the mileu, a recognition of the immanent temporality inherent in the articulation of zones of offensive capacity. The homogenous humanism proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with rupture. Our need to riot is less the realization of a project than the elaboration of a state of exception.
We must shatter all banality—for once and for all. This is a call to indifference, not an insistence on impotentiality. To those who deride the singular joy in a moment of friendship or a c-clamped pushbar, we propose nothing less than to destroy their compulsive passivity, without looking back. What's needed is not representation, and even far less totality, but a putting-into-practice of radical zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the structure of mobilization.
Confronted with those who refuse to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither dialogue nor sympathy but only our scorn. In the setting forth of encounters, we reject those who would have us give up the inoperative ecstasy of social war for the catastrophe of activism.AGAIN
