Disgust, poverty, and indignation are not enough for the war to explode! We need events, situations, actions. But the most difficult question follows the moment of action: why is our activism so lifeless when the action is over? For the point is not just to create explosive moments, but to make our lives into explosions! And political militancy is not enough for that… The enemy of freedom also lurks within every person who tries to protect himself behind all the things he already knows, all he owns, all that is familiar… He who carries the old world inside him is already old.
How wise can a rock be? How unique?
We are so careful with ourselves, so possessive of ourselves, but for all our petty property and properties, we are nothing. Yet we must be everything!
We have to destroy once and for all this image of self that mesmerizes us: “keep the balance,” “play it safe,” “count on what is certain.” Let no one ever say again: “This one is a rioter, this one is an intellectual, this one an alcoholic, this one hard-working, this one crazy, this one dead…” We take on roles and play them to the point of our own collapse… They have us used to existing in this way, to remaining predictable, categorized, isolated, ordinary! … But even Eros can play a role: not for identifying ourselves as libertines, monogamous, gay or straight–that’s enough declarations, enough of their pseudo-emancipatory convenience! We are our embarrassment–we are our fears–and much more, we are the overcoming of our fears. And now we know something we can no longer avoid:
WE ARE THE CENTER OF THIS WORLD
TO BLOW UP THIS WORLD, WE HAVE TO BLOW OURSELVES UP WITH IT!
NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE IF WE REMAIN THE SAME…
WE WILL FIGHT AGAINST ANYTHING THAT SUSTAINS EXPLOITATION AND TOTALITARIANISM!
WE ARE RAGING FOR LIFE, EROS, EQUALITY, AND TOTAL FREEDOM
