Richard Hawkins. Vitriol chapter 3, 2014. Our job is to open up a space, a space unfettered by the foreign grips of THE WORLD and that space is inevitably located in the intractable, irresponsible, unreasonable, humming, blossoming, temperamental spaces of our bodies. These “paths” are our “work”, our “labors”, our contributions to the greater good. These are “passional” labors and they are, in the end, these “workings”, meant to liberate us away from the Control State of laws, money, good citizenship, imperatives of productivity, charity, religious proscriptions, rightwing/leftwing conservatism, you name it. There is no very good favorite waste of time here - just the constant labors of our revolutionary bodies. There can be no separation – absolutely NO separation - between our state of ruthlessness and theirs: one pollutes the other, takes advantage of it, stirs it into distraction, energizes it, pushes its buttons and always makes it cum.A “revolutionary consciousness,” as it’s called, is nothing but a worthless chimera if it continues to remain outside of our revolutionary bodies. Bodies generate their own freedoms: shameless freedoms, reckless ones, whimsical, salacious and greedy ones … And no redemptions either, by the way, no longings for better hotter worlds tomorrow … just today, NOW, little everyday orgasms, little insistent, perpetual and immediate overcummings. — adapted from Guy Hocquenghem, To Destroy Sexuality

—- Let there be…
