Thesis on the Apolitical


The apolitical is an expression not a subject. There is no 'the' in regards to what corporeal body expresses explicit apoliticality


The rejection of politics by the apolitical is not a renunciation based rejection such as that of radical ultra/post-left anti-politics, apoliticality begins with a rejection that is grounded in corporeal egoist preferences. It is not configured on initiating an attack on a given political structure.


The active modes of apolitical orientation are a series of de and non-initiations away from integrated political structures of belief and behavior. Returning to Stirner's conception of owness, disowness of, or non association with, political orientation becomes an active process. If there is violence involved in this disassociation from politics it can only be defensive violence against the would be enforcers of a political totality.


Being apolitical is not an elective position or a proposed solution. For the political there are the ISSUES, for the anti-political the issues are not THE issue, for the apolitical THE issue is not MY issue. Issues themselves are subsumed away by preferential egoist individuation. Politicality of any kind cannot exist without some type of third person referential issue. The apolitical reject this, there is only MY issue.


Political orientation is rooted in abstract belief and behavior, thus any type of mode against politics must begin and end on the terrain of belief and behavior. There is no physical 'system' to attack or defend against, no machine to rage against. It is not about attacking abstract systems but dealing with people invested in belief based abstractions that must be enforced in everyday life in order to function. Think of a political believer the way a non religious person thinks of a religious person, someone to avoid or deal with directly. Ultimately apolitical energy should be aimed at undermining political belief.


The apolitical is corporeal in nature not constituted. As already mentioned the apolitical is an expression not a subject. This means that notions of struggle that are abstract and not rooted in any kind of corporeal immediacy are rendered null and void. Abstract constituted struggle mediated by elective positions and proposed solutions are not of any direct concern to the apolitical.


Belief itself, which is always third person, is the source of political mediation. A unique self-referential mind does not believe, it perceives, thinks and acts in an unmediated manner. Reality is always entertained and not taken as a constituted given, orientation with others is always provisional and based on affinity. Political body structures cannot survive on such loose thinking non believing minds.


In the end first person interest and third person issue become one. The political can only exist as the constituted, elective, proposed third person. Your interests and your issues are yours alone and that is not to be represented by anyone else nor should you try to elect and propose onto others.


The political world is built and maintained on the separation of will and representation. The apolitical brings an end to that line of separation. The apolitical will to power is corporeal power alone not the power of sublimated alien status or constituted enfranchisement driven struggle.


Let the world be panarchic then. There will be those who remain within the structure of politics and belief systems(BS). For the apolitical let anarchy, lawlessness, selfhood and will reign within shared relations of affinity and union.

Gender Nihilism or Gender Egoism

In reading the essay Gender Nihilism: An Anti-Manifesto by Alyson Escalante I can't help but note the misuse of nihilism in regards to making negation an end as opposed to a means.

 It seems to me that gender nihilism is too much on the renunciation side of analysis. Sure gender has been constructed by power(though I also think there is a morphic resonance basis for it as well as is the case with all language. I'm really not a fan of construct reductionism)but so has everything else in language and culture.

Instead of using nihilism as this unchecked renunciation driven negation use it to cut the non preferential fat on a personal basis. For this reason egoism should precede nihilism. Gender is one of those things that some people like and some people don't. You don't have to bring demands or abolition to the table which are ironic words considering that they began in the alien realm of statecraft.

Make gender your own or disown it. Ownness and disownment not abolition, for gender, work and all the other spooks. A both-and approach needs to be taken with affirmation and negation to keep the spooky excesses of both in check. Nihilism on its own has been misused for over century now and I don't think it's a just a matter of bad thinkers misapplying it. Egoism as I see it is the contextual mediator of negation and affirmation for what I see fit be it gender or anything else.

Neuroatypical as Apolitical

As someone who is interested in growing the idea of an active apolitical orientation as it relates to anarchy it would seem to(as a neuroatypical person myself) that neuroatypical behavior is a right fit an active apoliticalism.

For some of us in particular for whom this is the wrong planet it would seem obvious that politics is also wrong for us. It is wrong in that it requires a socially adhesive normative glue which neuroatypicals such as myself don't fall into easily. This is not to say that those of us of that behavior and affliction should be seen as privileged subjects in anyway, however, those interested in a world of anarchy and a world beyond politics might look to learn a thing or two from those not easily brought into the organization of civilization.

I also see the neuroatypical as a truer conception of what a queer orientation to life is. The 1960s conception of what is queer simply does not work anymore and even back then with some hindsight it probably did not make sense to use the word 'queer' to define those of alternative sexualities that can simply be counter normed over time. There is much of 1968 that needs to be swept to the dustbin at this point in time. I have mentioned in anarchistnews that adolescents and some children can perhaps be the basis for new forms of 21st century transgressions. I can perhaps write more on that at a later time.

As it stands though, it's time that some of us within the neuroatypical body politic turn our energies into an body apolitic. Our einzige engines should be put to better use then to help power civilization, history and leviathan.

All things are nothing to us.
