micro-revolution grounded on senses

How could hedonism, Epicureanism or libertinism ever be truly revolutionary? They all lead us back to ourselves, to our own blind and lonely isolation. Right? They tend toward making us more self-centred, more narcissistic, the last thing we need in this dreadful age. Correct?

We disagree. We don’t need a Way of Life, there are many. The nature of things forces us to regard and trust our senses above all else; they are our guide and our fate.

We rebel against mechanisation and puritanism equally. We call for a micro-revolution grounded in the senses.

— Homo Protocols, January 2013, Berlin (via homo-online)

“It is a matter of the Revolution—the one which, until such time as there is a classless society, will substitute for the narrow tyranny of a dehumanized bourgeoise the preponderance of the only class that still has a universal mission, because it suffers in the flesh from all the wrongs of history, from all the universal wrongs: the proletariat.”

Aimé Césaire, “Discourse on Colonialism”, 1972
