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