Slogans to be painted upon your tanks and embroidered into your banners:
One constraint upon formulating a political position is that it must remain deluded about its true relation to power.
The nonsense of every political tendency's general form is a necessary, if false, opening to the fragments of knowledge it is thereby allowed to collect.
Some useful discrete concepts and insights have been made available by NRx which are dependent upon the intrinsic absurdity of its general position.
It is tedious to forage through general principles for palatable scraps.
The question of political involvement is entirely situated in the ratio between energies expended and energies acquired.
Every political tendency's set of general principles is a preliminary narrative that must be endured before the opening of the casket of holy relics.
We must endure the setting of the scene before the protagonist's appearance.
You must apply a tourniquet to raise the vein.
In a circumstance where letting go of the contents of the discard pile is decisive, political consciousness still prefers the slag heap to the mine.
It is possible that neo-reaction's main problem is that it is still not reactionary enough.
We already knew that a kicked dog behaves differently to a kicked stone. But we are only just learning that the more often a dog is kicked, the more it behaves inanimately.
We already knew about the recuperative coding buried within leftist ideology without resorting to unpleasantness.
We had arrived at critiques of categories of left-identitarianism decades before NRx, and by a less arduous path.
We already know about the light averse quality in left discourse, its ploys for controlling interlocutors from beneath Enlightenment principles.
Even so, the therapeutic return of what is derided by marxists as the neo-kantian has been a blessed comfort to us.
Left and right iterations of the state-form utilise crypto-manipulative plays hidden within issue-based discourse.
It is the modus operandi of repressive discourse to refuse to acknowledge the real content of its accusations.
Ressentiment is the general term for the mode of power emerging from the internalisation of defeat.
But ressentiment as a concept does not articulate the organisational process of buried force (e.g. as exercised in the system of 'down on you' in Billy Budd).
There are unnamed repressive forms of power which operate nowhere but in the discourses of liberation.
Politics is the art of not naming determining factors. Or rather, it is the art of not even wishing to name them.
Always back to Fortuna.
The principle error in general principles (left or right), is belief in self-positioning.
In practice we are thrown, we do not throw. We are occupied, we do not occupy. We are positioned, we do not position.
Both the NRx and the ULx imagine their identification with decompositional tendencies grants them some sort of historical privilege.
In truth, no political tendency dictates terms to process. Nobody decides on the manner of their own recuperation.
No lesser power may capture a greater power.
The state always expropriates, it is never expropriated.
