Leaving Passivity Behind: Notes On the 2/25 Take Over

Editor’s note: This text, attributed to Occupy CA but not appearing on their site, sounds more like something from the infamous Insurrectionary Text Generator, but we are posting it here anyways for fun and curiosity. Enjoy!

The “Offical Communique from Occupy CA”

In the construction of desiring-bodies, we negate those who would have us give up the inoperative joy of indifference for the catastrophe of mobilization.

The compulsive impotentiality proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with crisis. Our need to riot is less the elaboration of a concept than the realization of a state of exception. It is necessary to commence absolutely; not to dream of new ways to organize, but to make manifest the subterranean communes in the heart of each smashed window. This is a call to rupture, not an insistence on activism.

Every burning dumpster is a refusal to be productive, a blow against the being of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the immanent temporality inherent in the articulation of zones of offensive capacity. We must reject all normalization—in secret. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our conspiracies of destruction, we offer neither sympathy nor dialogue but only our derision. In the construction of desiring-bodies, we negate those who would have us give up the inoperative joy of indifference for the catastrophe of mobilization.

To those who deride the radical ecstasy in a car set aflame or a c-clamped pushbar, we propose nothing less than to destroy their homogenous representation, without looking back. What’s needed is not totality, and even far less fossilization of our desires, but a putting-into-practice of singular zones of indistinction which need no justification, a rejection in all forms of the logic of humanism.
