Caroline says: You can hit me all you want to, this is impossibilism as a way of life.

Candy says: The world must follow the Russian path to communism. It is the only path that remains open. 
Lisa says: It is the path of exception which has become rule. 
Candy says: Said the white rabbit, said the white rabbit.
Stephanie says: The Russian path is characterised by long centuries of suffering and remorse which are unpredictably punctuated by brief moments of localised humanity.
Candy says: The Russian path leads away from the realisation of the ambition of humanity to author its own fate. 
Stephanie says: The path is found again in moments subsequent to the realisation of communist ambitions.
Lisa says: Just as the community of capital has realised the ambitions of the historical workers’ movement on its own terrain.
Stephanie says: Its so cold in Alaska.
Candy says: But the communist following the Russian path shrinks from programmatic praxis as from a living death.
Lisa says: He rediscovers his humanity in the moment the realisation of communism is shown as inadequate to his humanity. 
Stephanie says: He realises the inadequacy of communist principles as the Russian path, as his reflection upon the realisation of communism as an inappropriate community for his humanity.
Stephanie says: The path leads away from the organised realisation of principles in the form of the communist programme.
Candy says: The path has no destination. It is constituted in a critical tension with communist practices.
Stephanie says: For this reason, every impossibly true communist is appalled at the prospect of the victory of workers’ power as a synonym of communism.
Lisa says: The impossibly pure, the impossibly true, communist may only take the Russian path that leads away from the externalisation of his principles if he is not to betray them.
Stephanie says: If he is not to betray himself by realising them.
Candy says: He is seeking a means for the de-realisation of communist organisation.
Stephanie says: And for his own release from the praxis of communisation. 
Lisa says: Which is the genocidal impulse towards the liquidation of the kulaks as a class.
Candy says: O, dear, the via negativa, said the white rabbit.
Stephanie says: Said the white rabbit, said the white rabbit. 
Candy says: An impossibly pure and true communism may only be manifested amongst those individuals who have become alienated by the very organisational principles which they have imposed upon themselves. 
Stephanie says: I hate the big decisions. 
Lisa says: The Russian path is the means for letting go of, for the release from, the programmatic exchange by which the use of violence now is converted into power later. 
Candy says: It is a retreat from an orientation towards the idea of power. It is an abandonment of instrumentalist rationality, a resensitisation of and for feelings. Tolstoy said, if the advance of the railway costs one life, it is not worth the cost.
Stephanie says: The Russian Path is a therapeutic corrective to the tendency of communisation to materialise its costs/benefits in a genocidal runaway. 
Candy says: In their ill-fated attempt to live to their own design, the Russian path communists came to reflect upon a growing sense of their being cast out from the real world.
Lisa says: They perceived that the communist world cannot be, must not be, the world that they had made.
Stephanie says: The Russian path to communism must then lead away from the realisation of principles, from bolshevism,  and towards the communist’s tender heart.
Candy says: The path is set on a journey.
Lisa says:  Impossible communism is characterised in its journey towards realising its regret for the inhuman principles of the communist programme that it fought for. 
Stephanie says: It passes from its abject allegiance to the victory of the workers’ soviets, and embraces instead historic retreats behind the Urals, those historic retreats into sporadic empathy and unlooked for fellow feeling. 
Lisa says: Russian path communism illuminated isolated hearts as an objective historical phenomenon from the period of the great famine of 1930, through 1937, up to the point of the liberation of Stalingrad in 1943. 
Stephanie says: Such illuminations were characterised by a communist antagonism, set at the level of affect, to the inhumanity of the principles of communisation as these were realised by communist organisation. 
Lisa says: In these isolated examples, the followers of the Russian path retained the ethical frame of communism whilst refusing its realisation as the organisation of actually existing life. 
Stephanie says: The space for Russian path communism closed on the 2nd February 1943 with the liberation of Stalingrad... in its victories, communism always tends towards brutal and all encompassing dehumanisation.
Candy says: In his victories, every communist is a monster.
Lisa says: Then, let him realise himself, said the white rabbit, only through his defeats.
