A poem by Wallace Stevens

The Death of a Soldier

Life contracts and death is expected,
As in a season of autumn.
The soldier falls.

He does not become a three-days personage,
Imposing his separation,
Calling for pomp.

Death is absolute and without memorial,
As in a season of autumn,
When the wind stops,

When the wind stops and, over the heavens,
The clouds go, nevertheless,
In their direction.

A CONVERSATION WITH CATHERINE MALABOU

Posted by voidmanufacturing on July 24, 2008

 

 A CONVERSATION WITH CATHERINE MALABOU 

The questions of the following interview are aimed at introducing Catherine 

Malabou’s work and philosophical perspective to an audience who may 

have never heard of her, or who know only that she was a student of 

Derrida. What I hope that this interview reveals, however, is that Malabou 

“follows” deconstruction in a timely, and also useful way. For one of the 

common charges levied against deconstruction, at least by American critics, is 

that by opening texts to infinite interpretations, deconstruction unfortunately 

does away with more than the master narratives; it mires political agency in 

identity politics and offers no way out the socio-historical and political constructs 

of textuality other than the hope anchored in faith at best, but otherwise simply 

in the will to believe that the stance of openness to the other will let the other 

become part of the major discourses without thereby marginalizing or 

homogenizing them.   Read the rest of this entry »

“The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “state of emergency” in which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a conception of history that is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency.”

— Walter Benjamin, Theses on the Philosophy of History

A WORD.

A word is dead

When it is said,

  Some say.

I say it just

Begins to live

  That day

Technology

Posted by voidmanufacturing on July 20, 2008

 

by John Zerzan

Tech-nol-o-gy n. According to Webster’s: industrial or applied science. In reality: the ensemble of division of labor/production/industrialism and its impact on us and on nature. Technology is the sum of mediations between us and the natural world and the sum of those separations mediating us from each other. it is all the drudgery and toxicity required to produce and reproduce the stage of hyper-alienation we live in. It is the texture and the form of domination at any given stage of hierarchy and commodification. Read the rest of this entry »

Pornography is a medical and public health problem because so much of it teaches false, misleading, and even dangerous information about human sexuality. A person who learned about human sexuality in the “adults only” pornography outlets of America would be a person Read the rest of this entry »

Renzo Novatore

My soul is a sacrilegious temple

in which the bells of sin and crime,

voluptuous and perverse,

 loudly ring out revolt and despair.
