Felix Guattari, Accelerationist
19 Sep 2015

The criticism that consumption society deserves is that there are not enough things: we need more gadgets, and things and stuff, that we can box into other things, all this crap, a whole sexuality of gadgets. The Puritans still have too much control over consumer society!

So that we can put an end to archaic territoriality and the lingering smell of Christian alliances and vicious filiations…. We have to pass to signs. 'Schizo power'!


I don't know!

Because there is no choice! It's already starting anyway! It's irreversible. And anyway, who cares….

There must be some other reason.

The supreme foundation of ethics.

The reinforced artificiality of desire, correlative to the deterritorialization of the sign is, it seems to me, the path to less bullshit, and to unblocking political and neurotic impasses of all kinds. As well as being, surely, a new way to please the good Lord! The accomplishment of nothing!
