Summer Offensive

As the impact of 9/11/01 wanes, we will see whether we can connect the dots, renew and deepen our understanding and resolve. The road to the September World Trade Organization summit in Cancun passes through, for many, the late June WTO biotech conference in Sacramento. Along other paths and at a great variety of sites as well will the depth of our desire for liberation be manifest.

Summer Offensive

The anti-war protests of the early spring were at times encouraging but remained, overall, limited and single-issue. "Anti-globalization" activism in recent years has mainly focused on the excesses of the totalizing Machine of Technology and capital and not on its basic nature, its unrelenting logic.

In all directions and at an accelerating rate, the degradation deepens and the toll mounts. Some seem committed to the dull, slow death of reform approaches, content to hope to slightly re-arrange the modern artifacts of estrangement. These concerned souls contest really nothing, threatened as they are by the intoxicating element, the realm of permanent surprises.
Protest/activism as usual is worse than a bad joke. It is surrender to the forces of death. It is the chorus of moderates who continue, for example, to lie about the courageous militants of Genoa (anti-G8, July 2001), calling those who caused tens of millions in damage the accomplices of cops and fascists. Such is the slander by Chomsky, the World Social Forum and all others horrified by a real assault on the system of destruction and domination.
Some 200 years ago in Egypt, Napoleon, soon to be emperor and tyrant, sought to inspire his army. "Soldiers," he said, pointing to the pyramids, "Forty centuries are watching you." Napoleon sought to tip the scales of the world but only, of course, in terms of glory for a nation-state.
We may say that 100 centuries look down on us, because the crisis of today was born with domestication itself. Civilization has brought us to this point in time, containing in its awful trajectory the victims of all history. We must do our part to honor this realization.
In this homeless world the Machine plays its cards for all to see. Naked force everywhere, everything at stake for the resistance to that force. The challenge could not be issued with greater clarity.
