“THE NEW ADVENTURES OF THE DIALECTIC”

“Next week: The World Turned Upside Down”

Coming soon, the postcard…

In the same month that issue 8 of internationale situationniste was published the Situationist International issued a postcard advertising their change of address. They possibly issued two but I have only seen a reproduction of one of them. It is titled Les Aventures de la Dialectique and advertises La Revanche de la Dialectique as next week’s episode. I will endeavour to put up a scan(s) of it up in the near future.

A minor détournement – and King Communism!

king communism – poster 10

“Be unreasonable, demand the possible.”

The graffiti from Paris, May 1968, the words “Soyons réalistes, exigeons l’impossible” are also, apparently, the words of Che Guevara, guerrilla and sometime state socialist bureaucrat from Bolivia, Cuba and Argentina. The slogan was always a bit stupid, more management speak of the armed civil servant than the “radical subject” of revolutionary transformation. And so the path from the dreary terror of guerrilla “socialism” to the global boredom and horrors of neo-liberalism; a tired old relic of the post-war boom used to justify the commodified memory of the 1960s.

Much like Hegel the phrase needs to be turned on its head in order to speak sense.

I am sick of being reasonable. The agents of capitalist society don’t care if you are reasonable or unreasonable, they just want you to work, buy or go away.

In the face of the ‘rational’ organisation of capitalist irrationality be unreasonable. Be unreasoanble in the sense of refusing to accept the bullshit ‘arguments’ that justify our slavery to the wage and the rich. This is the reasonable path, the refusal of the lies, falsehoods, humiliations and spectacle we continue to consume.

We must struggle to do away with the vast alienation of human life and potential. We must demand the eminently possible – for a community of freely associated individuals!

“The real movement of history”

“Communism is for us not a state of affairs which is to be established, an ideal to which reality [will] have to adjust itself. We call communism the realmovement which abolishes the present state of things. The conditions of this movement result from the premises now in existence.”

– Marx & Engels, The German Ideology (1845-6)

Much better than this.
