They Say Crisis. We Say Revolution
"The gurus of old colonial Europe seem determined of late to explain to the activists of the Occupy, Indignados, crip-intersex-trans-queer, feminist and post-porn movements that we aren't able to start a revolution because we don't have an ideology. They say "an ideology" the way my mother used to say "a husband". Well, we need neither an ideology nor a husband. New feminists do not need a husband because we are not women. Just as we don't need an ideology because we are not people. We are neither communism nor liberalism. And not the old Catholic-Muslim-Jewish tune. We speak a different language. They say representation; we say experimentation. They say identity; we say multitude. They say control the poor neighbor-hoods; let's invent the city of hybrids. They say debt; we say sexual cooperation and somatic interdependence. They say human capital; we say multi-species alliance. They say horsemeat on our plates; we say let's get on horseback to escape the global slaughterhouse together. They say power; we say potency. Say integration; we say disidentification. They say interdisciplinary; we say undisciplined. They say man-woman, Black-White, human-animal, homosexual-heterosexual, Israel-Palestine. We say you know very well that your truth-production apparatus has stopped working... How many Galilees will we need this time to re-learn how to name things ourselves? (...) They say crisis. We say revolution."
