Desmond Painter. Slagspreuke van ‘n Situasionis: Raoul Vaneigem

Raoul Vaneigem

Raoul Vaneigem

Ek het nog altyd gehou van ‘n goeie slagspreuk. En ek het ‘n sagte plekkie vir die Situasioniste en ander selebrante van die alledaagse. Hier, vir die naweek, is ‘n paar lekker slagspreuke van Raoul Vaneigem.
*
In an industrial society which confuses work and productivity, the necessity of producing has always been an enemy of the desire to create.
*
The same people who are murdered slowly in the mechanized slaughterhouses of work are also arguing, singing, drinking, dancing, making love, holding the streets, picking up weapons and inventing a new poetry.
*
Never before has a civilization reached such a degree of a contempt for life; never before has a generation, drowned in mortification, felt such a rage to live.
*
We can escape the commonplace only by manipulating it, controlling it, thrusting it into our dreams or surrendering it to the free play of our subjectivity.
*
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
