Protest only serves as the prenatal expression of an attitude that must still give birth to direct action. Continue reading “NO EXIT”
THE IDES OF MARCH & THE DAY AFTER
How did the world come to be crowded with so many little Caesars? Are we approaching a new age of ceremonial regicide? For too long a revolutionary perspective has been the view from a periscope, whereas the true corruption lies in our spleen, like a sludge of accumulated microplastic. It’s no longer enough to “cut off the head of the Beast,” the virus of the Corporate-State Apparatus has infiltrated every vital organ of the social body, the lymph, the entire nervous system.

Try to imagine a psychocivilisational AI that has internalised all the dynamics of political critique, protest, dissent, insurrection, revolution. An AI whose hegemony is secretly contiguous with the entire cybersphere. How would the existence of such a power be made manifest within the system of representations “we” call the world?
