Letterists, Situs, and Bad Company

Capitalism reinforces itself by affecting the atomization of society, and thus the disempowerment of the subject. No-one can operate in a vacuum. So…

So I’m reading about Guy Debord stumbling one day across crazy Isou’s Letterists, and about the Letterist International’s break-away (a few friends, inc. Debord, with similar ideas), and the formation of the Situationist International. And about all the time Debord spent in bars in bad company in 1952, and I’m thinking:

Where is my band of trouble makers, where is the group of people I will learn from and bounce off, and create situations with?

How are we ever to start the revolution if there is no ‘we’?

I’m setting about searching for a concrete we: the actors of our future revolution!

Solidarity!

  1. Can i be a part of this ‘we’ please?

  2. You already are x

  3. Should i bring the whiskey? I propose a road trip of rampage and if people don’t accept the revolt then…”no whiskey for you my son”. I am equipt with my everyday actions. Interventions that require your worthy political endowment.

  4. The situs are my heros. Especially Guy Debod. I read some of his book Society of Spectacles. It made me think of evreything differently.

    Thanks for your post
