Leaving humanism behind: Notes on rupture
In the realization of zones of offensive capacity, we negate those who would have us give up the radical joy of zones of indistinction which need no justification for the misery of passivity.
To those who deride the singular ecstasy in a moment of friendship or a smashed window, we propose nothing less than to shatter their homogenous mobilization, without looking back. Every car set aflame is a refusal to organize, a blow against the being of the bureaucrats of revolt, a recognition of the inoperative temporality inherent in the articulation of encounters. Confronted with those who neglect to recognize themselves in our festivals of negation, we offer neither criticism nor sympathy but only our contempt. Our need to occupy everything is less the elaboration of a concept than the construction of a line of flight.
What's needed is not activism, and even far less totality, but a putting-into-practice of immanent indifference, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of banality. It is necessary to commence absolutely; not to dream of new ways to make demands, but to make manifest the subterranean becomings in the heart of each burning dumpster. In the realization of zones of offensive capacity, we negate those who would have us give up the radical joy of zones of indistinction which need no justification for the misery of passivity. The pathetic representation proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with insurrection.
We must reject all absence—without illusions. This is a call to social war, not an insistence on fossilization of our desires.
