From Avalanche- #11, July 2017 (anarchist correspondence)
To be in conflict with power doesn’t mean to be gene rally hostile towards power. The hostility towards power begins with scepticism – the scepticism questioning its existence and necessity. A rational matter, on the one hand, which persuades us to develop rational analyses about the functioning and transformations of pow er. Although purely abstract, whereas the putting into practice of our hostilities towards power also means to move on to speaking about oneself and about considering one’s own life as the field of projection for the own ideas. An irrational matter, on the other hand, a mat ter of heart, a matter of acting, an individual moment of rupture. A rupture, which overcomes the passive attitude of scepticism and creates by means of the own ideas and comrades projects that are attempting to push the hostility towards power in the direction of a permanent revolt and a generalised rupture with authority.
