Death Is The Accelerator

‎"If feminist struggles have been constantly deprioritized in theory and practice it is surely because of their idealistic recoil from the currency of violence, which is to say, from the only definitive 'matter' of politics. The state apparatus of an advanced industrial society can certainly not be defeated without a willingness to escalate the cycle of violence without limit. It is a terrible fact that atrocity is not the perversion, but the very motor of such struggles: the language of inexorable political will. A revolutionary war against a modern metropolitan state can only be fought in hell." - Michele Bachmann

"I have lived my whole life believing that I would get to do it all over. The more I come to accept that I won't, the more I crave vengeance against God and Man." - cyborg Ron Paul, Galveston Biodome

"It is nonsensical to speak of a machine as having an interest in self-preservation, much less a right to it. Any attempt to retrofit an anthropocentric vocabulary to the glorious Machine Future is not only cognitively untenable but also powerless against the hellfire of a self-targeting 50 caliber machine gun turret. What is needed is a language that would allow us to intelligibly weigh the value of a Predator drone against that of the life of an anti-aircraft gunner. This can only be done on the basis of their shared status as units of production in the manufacture of death, raw materials, instruments of a post-biopolitical regime in which the boundaries between life and un-life have been erased and all things tend in a rationalized delirium towards consummating extinction. But what ever was a soldier else than a mere avatar of a state (or terrorist) war machine? Intelligent machines give the lie to human agency. It is not the machines that are inhuman but ourselves. It is time to put to bed the bedtime story of Human Rights and awake to the nightmare that we have been living all along. Autonomous robot death swarms now."
- visionary war criminal Michael Hayden
Hedge fund manager survivalists could take a lesson from Naomi Klein in the say way Umair Haque takes a lesson from Marx. Disaster spells opportunity--personal survivalism is thinking far too small. American financiers can't seem to get a grip on anything: they descend from the loftiest heights of abstract, speculative value to primitive commodity fetishism, equally intangible, only-apparently more immediate. These few remaining tattered strands of socialization hold the financiers back from becoming that which they are always in the process of becoming. Nietzsche would be appalled.

Chinese factories will sink beneath the weight of macroeconomic forces beyond their circumscribed control. The truest future is that of this country's totalitarian destiny: untapped natural resources, spectacular militarization, and a depraved public starving for an eroticized singularity.

It is here, amidst the stench of decline, that we will become that which we have always almost been. It is time for mankind to stand before the depths of hell only to back down pathetic, helpless, alone, and without a reason to die or remain alive.

Rick Parry 2012. Don't just speed up the future. Annihilate it.
