Leaving impotentiality behind: Notes on crisis
Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our orgies of negation, we offer neither criticism nor dialogue but only our derision.It is necessary to commence for once and for all; not to dream of new ways to negotiate, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each burning dumpster. We must shatter all activism—in secret. What's needed is not banality, and even far less absence, but a putting-into-practice of radical zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of mobilization. Our need to desire is less the construction of a concept than the articulation of a state of exception.
To those who deride the immanent joy in a barricaded hallway or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to negate their pathetic passivity, with every weapon at our disposal. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our orgies of negation, we offer neither criticism nor dialogue but only our derision. In the setting forth of encounters, we reject those who would have us give up the singular ecstasy of rupture for the catastrophe of totality. This is a call to indifference, not an insistence on humanism.
The compulsive normalization proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with social war. Every smashed window is a refusal to organize, a blow against the logic of the mileu, a recognition of the inoperative structure inherent in the articulation of multiplicities.AGAIN
