Centrism is neither a position nor a force.

Centrism is rather parasitic on left and right positions, falling and rising forces.

Singer, “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

The liberal question is violence or non-violence. The left question is emancipation or anti-emancipation.

I’ll pass on left unity.

The only kind of unity the left needs is the unification for plurality/against unity. 

This is how history works.

Old Left divides can be overcome, but only on New Left terms.

Where do communities come from?

They come from the past and, more importantly, the future; above and, more creatively, from below; the right and, more decisively, the left. 

You claim to be a “cynic,” but you are a huge conformist.

The contradiction is merely apparent: you are “cynical” only against critical, radical, and left currents.

The center says the left and the right are the same.

They are right in one respect: the left and right are political, while the center is not.

I have seen the enemy.

I’m pretty sure his name isn’t Derrida or Foucault.

Left polarities.

The first pole is aesthetic: the drive to create. The second pole is political: the drive to emancipate.

Ableism.

Can the politically incapacitated be held culpable for their condition?
