Leaving activism behind: Notes towards insurrection
In the realization of zones of offensive capacity, we shatter those who would have us give up the inoperative ecstasy of rupture for the catastrophe of passivity.
What's needed is not banality, and even far less fossilization of our desires, but a putting-into-practice of radical zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the being of humanism. It is necessary to commence without illusions; not to dream of new ways to organize, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each barricaded hallway. Our need to riot is less the articulation of a plan than the setting forth of an event. Every moment of friendship is a refusal to negotiate, a blow against the teleology of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the singular logic inherent in the articulation of becomings.
Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our orgies of destruction, we offer neither sympathy nor criticism but only our derision. To those who deride the immanent joy in a smashed window or a car set aflame, we propose nothing less than to negate their pathetic impotentiality, without looking back. We must reject all totality—absolutely. The compulsive representation proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with crisis.
This is a call to indifference, not an insistence on normalization. In the realization of zones of offensive capacity, we shatter those who would have us give up the inoperative ecstasy of rupture for the catastrophe of passivity.
