From Post Insurrectionary Revengism

I generally refuse to debate to which degree our collective future is set in stone. Placing hypothetical situations at the forefront of political thought seems foolish to me, as none of us are clairvoyant. Hypothetically, if all fossil fuels were left in the ground, and no more were burned as of tomorrow, we might have a chance of survival as a species. Hypothetically, a solar storm could knock the grid offline, saving the natural world from further extirpation. Hypothetically, the powerful could adopt humane policies to reduce human suffering during ecological and industrial collapse. We know, however, that these are sordid fantasies. They are sordid because they detract from real suffering being visited upon the natural world everyday, and the suffering of those humans to which the apocalypse is not a distant future event, or a clever metaphor.

At times it broadens to critique insurrectionalisms of other places or more general aspects of the tendency.

1. Madonna and preconceptualist discourse

In the works of Madonna, a predominant concept is the distinction between opening and closing. The characteristic theme of Werther’s[1] model of Debordist image is a mythopoetical totality.
