the conclusion of this essay after you wrote it?
it see;s so europe is americanized and that france no
is ___ what was so difficult to pierce through the
sad faciality of the media in power throughout europem that NO
was not there to assume the role of the chauvinis; in Francem
but to stand as the single little Jourdain river of escape from the Dead Sea 
of the Constitution
so it is q different viewm not mediatazed by sad monsters of capital,

no is possible to construct such esse;bles as russia europa africqa with 
independence from elite of pan global and thus its a small victory,\

in every cos;opolitan toawn such as Berklin is one there are yu kno great 
and il channels of discovery,\

this chanelle of no is a victory offer sone views on the resistance at least 
to the cycicall approriation of whatever can sadden the soulm ;mine or the 
one of your readersm i am wondering what for this attitude of denegativism 
justify it by charaters explained in litteraturem but what is your original 
charater thinking. this is the one we are expecting to see speak each time 
we read your signature on the top of one corriel on this list. restistance, 
alterrnatibe, positiver, will to power dignity lacks  lets pt[p promuilgate

everybody should read the book of virilio on Accident Orgioninel to get an 
idea of the blakeqns ressurgeqnce qmong nez poets of therse years,

see you soon i returned to brussels, bye4eusq comrqdes




I returned from  Berlin last week and everybody seemed to be doing
well, with their wireless internet and "Golden Girls" on TV. The idea
that europe will be flung into dangerous chaos by France's "no" seems
unlikely.  Just like their vote last may, this vote just does not seem
imperative at this moment in history. (I am thinking of other
problems, like an economy formed by China and India teaming up with
bella Russia! it could easily swallow the dollar, the pound, and the
euro, combined.) So, France chooses not to downgrade their power by
voting out the '82 Commission and voting in the new constitution, what
does this have to do with Foucault, I would like to know.

I also need some help to see this mythic curve tracing "Nietszche and
Lou to Nin and Smith, finally betrayed by Foucault."  I am much more
conscious of  another mythic curve coming from Stirner and piercing
both Nietsche & wagner then going passed them through Duchamp &
mussilini, dispersing it into the american art world for a number of
decades, before hitting Foucault specifically at his anti-fascist
heart.  I see parallels in these two tragectories but most often they
are contradictions of each other that are difficult to resolve. At
least at the end they both return to Foucault, who returns to Marx,
which is not so good for Nin's camp, but is really very revealing for
Duchamp's.
This all happened in the decadent period of late 1920's Paris. Nin has
Miller leaving NYC coming to Paris, signaling a huge new chapter in
american avant-garde consumerism (And-I). The court battles that
allowed Miller's work to be published in the US trod on some very
fundemental paradigms that were eventually shifted... but meanwhile,
Duchamp slowly leaves Paris for NYC, he has given up avant-garde art
for chess - basically because he believed chess to be immune to the
rampant commercialization that he was witnessing in the art world
(Nor-I). Later, after the war, people like Cage and Beckett  devised a
frankenstein version of the pre-WW2 avant-garde that includes bits and
pieces of Duchamp's fractured legacy. Their significance is also tied
to the fact that they demanded paradigm shifts to be experienced.
They are like Wilde's Salome, the virgin who kisses the head after
decapitation. Then there is the other salome, Lou, the one who threw
nietszche into the abyss of Stirner's '"creative nothing", she is like
the pre-Dionysian goddess Cybele, asking for castration, but Nietsche
was unable to let it go, unable to see beyond Apollo and Dionysis, and
it was the contradictions in his German Ideology as Marx saw it. If
perhaps he could have been less german, or less male, like Wilde was,
perhaps he could find identity (And-I) with his maddening absolute.
But Stirner makes an insightful distinction that ultimately brings
this all back to Foucault. Stirner would never agree with that
fundamental post-structuralist idea, that as a product of systems, the
"self" is undermined. For Stirner, the self cannot be a mere product
of systems. True, but Marx wrote over 200 pages showing that this
german ideology was lacking significant depth.

So what of this EU? yes or no? At least in germany the Stirner-ists
are perfectly content with their "self" watching the latest
(10-years-old) american shows like "Friends" and "Home Improvement" on
cable TV. The day I left Berlin, the Jackson family announced that
Berlin is where they will be moving the Neverland ranch... "home
improvement" indeed.
