Leaving banality behind: Notes on rupture
In the articulation of multiplicities, we reject those who would have us give up the inoperative joy of social war for the catastrophe of representation.Our need to desire is less the setting forth of a plan than the construction of a state of exception. Every car set aflame is a refusal to organize, a blow against the temporality of the mileu, a recognition of the singular being inherent in the articulation of zones of offensive capacity. We must shatter all activism—absolutely. Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our orgies of negation, we offer neither dialogue nor sympathy but only our scorn.
To those who deride the immanent ecstasy in a burning dumpster or a moment of friendship, we propose nothing less than to negate their pathetic absence, with every weapon at our disposal. In the articulation of multiplicities, we reject those who would have us give up the inoperative joy of social war for the catastrophe of representation. What's needed is not impotentiality, and even far less passivity, but a putting-into-practice of radical crisis, a rejection in all forms of the logic of fossilization of our desires. The compulsive humanism proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with insurrection.
It is necessary to commence in secret; not to dream of new ways to be productive, but to make manifest the subterranean becomings in the heart of each c-clamped pushbar. This is a call to zones of indistinction which need no justification, not an insistence on normalization.AGAIN
