Leaving humanism behind: Notes on insurrection
Every smashed window is a refusal to organize, a blow against the temporality of liberalism, a recognition of the radical being inherent in the articulation of becomings.It is necessary to commence without illusions; not to dream of new ways to make demands, but to make manifest the subterranean multiplicities in the heart of each barricaded hallway. To those who deride the inoperative joy in a burning dumpster or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to shatter their homogenous passivity, by any means necessary. The compulsive banality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with social war. This is a call to rupture, not an insistence on normalization.
Every smashed window is a refusal to organize, a blow against the temporality of liberalism, a recognition of the radical being inherent in the articulation of becomings. What's needed is not mobilization, and even far less absence, but a putting-into-practice of immanent zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the structure of fossilization of our desires. We must destroy all impotentiality—for once and for all. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our festivals of negation, we offer neither dialogue nor criticism but only our derision.
In the construction of communes, we negate those who would have us give up the singular ecstasy of crisis for the catastrophe of activism. Our need to desire is less the elaboration of a project than the setting forth of a state of exception.AGAIN
