To Be or Not to Be .......

Is a question of power
Power it self must be
abolished ---- and not solely because of the refusal to be dominated which is at the heart of all traditional struggles-- but also, just as
violently, in the refusal to dominate.

Intelligence cannot, can

never be in power because intelligence consist of this double refusal power has ransacked all of the strategies of simulation:
parody
irony
and self mockery 
------
Leaving the left with only a phantom of the truth the terms simulacrum, simulation, and virtual summarize this liquidation
in which every signification is eliminated by its own sign, and the profusion of signs parodies a by now unobtainable reality.
