The Politics of the Extreme Centre
Original title: Politiques de l’extrême centre
« What is to be done? » Lenin’s question once initiated reflexions for building a new order. It is now rhetorical : Tell me I can’t do anything as I don’t have the strength to actively engage in the act of resistance the circumstances call for. We pitifully look for a De Gaulle to respond to, or a Ghandi to massively imitate — but each of us in his own corner. At this stage of political dereliction, indeed, what is to be done? Stop the indignation and move on to the next question. Work endlessly towards a synthesis of valid causes, organize beyond sectarian and parochial divides, mock ideology, objectify concepts that propaganda describes as merely subjective, transcend hegemonic modes of organization and experiment institutional forms that resemble us. Radicalize!
