Becoming-Autonomy

Destroying the old world through revolutionary transgression is often presented in these pages as if it is less an action of gesture than one of language. This, of course, is incorrect, as gesture and language cannot be compartmentalized as homogenous zones of the event. Discourse and action/narrative and behavior are coterminous. If it appears otherwise … Continue reading

Southern Appalachia: Marx’s Hillbilly Hell

Yesterday I woke up with a recollection at least 10 years old. Time-scaling the processes of thinking gives lie to the image of thought as the instantaneous interplay of representations between corporeal assemblage and mental cognition – some thoughts take 10 years and exhaust the world’s terrains to make themselves known! Marx’s Eighteenth Brumaire, I … Continue reading

Recently Published: Global Rome

Indiana University Press has just published Global Rome: Changing Faces of the Eternal City, which contains an essay on Ultras and fandom. “Football, Romanità, and the Search for Stasis,” gives a sense of how affective and active is the fascist narrative of Romanità in the lives of certain Romans.

Reivers and Bushwhackers, We Salute You

There are those who see subjectification as the impossibility of revolt, and others who see it as the creation of a warfront on every single aspect of life. Some seek shelter in semiocratic slavery; others, however, go to war.

She is an ethical approach to life, one unburdened by a necessarily moralistic conformity to Form and Tradition.

That’s for men of the State — who believe in and belong to the State.” – Jack Donovan[1] Counter-Currents has published a new paper, “Life is Always Right: … Continue reading

There’s a Storm Coming

“You must know that blood has no value or splendor unless it has been freed from the prison of the arteries by iron or fire.” – F.T. Marinetti[1]   In the early days of July 1923, a heroic and blasphemous storm blew across the Carso plain and down into the Po river valley. Its high … Continue reading

Genealogy of a Becoming-Revolutionary, One

What happens when a pagan dies? He goes to heaven, silly. Random entry-point I. The effect of words is not a matter of belief, let alone truth, but obedience and conformity – most of which is unconscious: “Language’s primary function is not to communicate or inform but to issue orders;” “Speech acts don’t establish, share, … Continue reading

This is a Symphony

What shall we do, when public art becomes so vulgarly Marketable,   So Progressive, so Modern, so Global?   Set it on fire, and in doing so, create the next avant-garde:   The flaming wicks of Molotov cocktails will be our paintbrushes,   Terrifying sirens and megaphones will be our orchestras, we’ll scribe   New … Continue reading
