Unground: Fragment on U/ACC

Let’s not get it twisted: in focusing our attention on a “ground” from which our politics emerge, this is not to suggest that it is a ground we can capable of knowing.

After all, the unknowability of such a ground is what has led to the construction of the various illusions we are presently dealing with. But it is better to wrestle with this unknowability than the scaffolding we build around it.

To decide on this structure and come to some kind of false concensus is — politically speaking at least — far too arrogant. It is a fascism — a microfascism as Deleuze and Guattari would call it.

What is instead necessary is that we retreat to the ungrounded so that we might do better at climbing over our present complacencies, because the work is never over.
