Synopsis[ edit ] In its original incarnation, The Coming Insurrection consisted of twelve chapters, together with a brief afterword. The English edition of the book was published after the Tarnac Nine arrests, and therefore includes a brief foreword and introduction which touch on the subject of the arrests, for a total of fifteen parts.

The book is divided into two halves. The first half attempts a diagnosis of the totality of modern capitalist civilizationmoving through what the Committee identify as the "seven circles" of alienation, induced by states and capitalism: Because the book is a radical leftist, theoretical work, this alienation can be alternately understood in the general sense of the word, or otherwise in its specifically Marxist sense.

Beginning in Get Going! The insurrection envisioned by the Committee entails local appropriation of power by the people, physical l insurrection qui vient of the economy, and rendering police actions l insurrection qui vient.

For examples, the book points to the late s financial crisis and environmental degradation as symptoms of capitalism's decline.

Also discussed are the Argentine economic crisis and the piquetero movement which emerged from it, the riots and student protests in France, the Oaxaca protestsand the grassroots relief work l insurrection qui vient New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

These events serve as examples both of breakdown in the modern, conventional social order, and at l insurrection qui vient same time of the capacity of human beings to spontaneously self-organize for revolutionary ends, which taken together can give rise to partial insurrectionary situations.

Foreword[ edit ] "The book you hold in your hands has become the principal piece of evidence in an anti-terrorism case in France directed against nine individuals who were arrested on November 11,mostly in the village of Tarnac. Although only scant circumstantial evidence has been presented against the nine, the French Interior Minister has publicly associated them with the emergent threat of an 'ultra-left' movement, taking care to single out this book, described as a 'manual for terrorism,' which they are accused l insurrection qui vient authoring.

What follows is the text of the book preceded by the l insurrection qui vient statement of the Invisible Committee since the arrests. A Point Of Clarification[ edit ] The introduction describes contemporary civil unrest in Greece and France, and encourages situations which may lead to revolution.

L'insurrection qui vient — After 8 Books

The book's association with the Tarnac Nine is obliquely acknowledged, but not confirmed in terms of authorship. For the author sthe political goal of the book is a form of communism, although the author s intend that l insurrection qui vient in a simpler sense which is related to, but distinct from, its historical one.


The introduction, specifically, is signed and dated: On the contrary, the author s intimate that states, capitalism, and the world economy l insurrection qui vient are the true root causes of the above problems, which really derive from the alienation which they naturally create, to be sketched immediately.

The result is " Atomization into fine paranoiac particles.

Book review: L’Insurrection qui vient, written by Comité Invisible

Tied in every way to places, l insurrection qui vient, ancestors, friends, loves, events, languages, memories, to all kinds of things that obviously are not me. Meanwhile, social relations are also hollowed out by capitalism transactional couple-relationships of convenience, perhaps for career advancement, "work buddies" as opposed to true friendshipsetc.


The end result is a poverty of social relations, which now lack "warmth, simplicity, truth". The theme is work, as in the case of the refusal of workand how work affects all other categories of life l insurrection qui vient relationships, friendships, "time off".

Ironically work, and the social dignity which it is supposed to confer, "has totally triumphed over all l insurrection qui vient ways of existing, at the same time as workers have become superfluous.

Gains in productivity, outsourcing, mechanization, automated and digital production have so progressed that they have almost reduced to zero the quantity of living labor necessary in the manufacture of any product.

Architecture and urbanism are thus entailed, and the chapter cites examples of urban warfareforeshadowing the book's later explicit militant project. Forced by Palestinian guerrillas to abandon the streets, which had become too dangerous, they learned to advance vertically and horizontally into the heart of the urban architecture, poking holes in walls and ceilings in order to move through them.

Again, the author s dismiss the recent practice of businesses factoring environmental considerations into l insurrection qui vient plans, as being cynical: The purpose of the chapter is not to say that the author s are unconcerned for the natural world they clearly lament extinction of fish species, among other examplesl insurrection qui vient rather to disdain the historical hypocrisy which they ascribe to businesses and states about environmental issues.
