"We must begin ‘Our Revolution’!"
전 세계를 집어삼키고 있는 괴물들과 맞서 싸우기 위한 바디우 선생의 네가지 원칙!
what happens during the horror of the profound night
to think beyond the affect
what we must do, which is not precisely to be under the law of affect, of negative affect, but at the level of thinking, action, political determination, and so on.
the situation of the world today
historical victory of globalized capitalism
two possibilities concerning the historical destiny of human beings : liberalism(private property), socialist/communist way(the end of inequalities)
Everybody knows that monstrous inequalities cannot be a solution of the historical destiny of human beings
“Okay, it’s not so good, but it’s the only real possibility.”
there is no other solution, no other way.
‘monster’: globalized capitalism and its inequalities
the monster is more and more a monster. 264 = 3 billion persons
the choice between that sort of guy and the rest of the educated politicians, the new form of political vulgarity and something subjectively violent
affective language which creates a false unity but a practical unity.
we are in a fatal dialectics of four terms. the crisis of today
First, the general and strategic domination of globalized capitalism. the complete brutality and blind violence of the savage capitalism of today.
Second: the decomposition of the classical political oligarchy, the birth of the new figure of a new fascism
Third, the popular disorientation and frustration. The lack of orientation, of stability, the feeling of the destruction of their world, without the construction of another world; so a sort of void destruction.
fourth, the complete lack, of another strategic way. A great Idea which is the possibility of global unification, strategic unification of all forms of resistance and invention. An Idea is a sort of mediation between the individual subject and the collective historical and political task, and it’s the possibility of action across and with very different subjectivities, but under the same Idea in some sense.
After that, what is to be done?
because Hillary Clinton and Trump are in the same world
Bernie Sanders and Trump, inside the world and beyond the world
we must propose a political orientation which goes beyond the world
We must begin, the beginning of the return to the true contradiction, to a real choice, to a real strategic choice concerning the orientation of human beings.
We must reconstruct the idea that against the monstrous inequalities of the present capitalism, against also the new gangsters of classical politics, like Trump
we must go beyond the One, in the direction of the Two. it’s the dialectical return to the real Two beyond the One, and we can propose some names for that sort of return. ‘Communism’
first, it’s not a necessity that forever private property and monstrous inequalities must be the law of the becoming of humanity.
second, it’s not a necessity that workers will be separated between noble work and manual work.
third, it’s not a necessity for human beings to be separated by national, racial, religious or sexual boundaries.
fourth, it’s not a necessity that there exists a state, in the form of a separated and armoured power.
collectivism against private property, polymorphous worker against specialization, concrete universalism against closed identities, and free association against the state.
