Example text

Daniel Guerin has said some profound things about the revolution of 1 789. The bourgeoisie never had any illusions about who its real enemy was. Its real enemy was not the previous system, but what escaped the previous system's control, and what the bour­ geoisie strove to master in its turn. It too owed its power to the ruin of the old system, but this power could only be exercised insofar as it opposed everything else that was in rebellion against the old system. The bourgeoisie has never been revolutionary.

One always finds the old schema: the detachment of a pseudo-avant­ garde capable of bringing about syntheses, of forming a party as an embryo of state apparatus, of drawing out a well brought-up, well educated working class; and the rest is a residue, a lump en-prole­ tariat one should always mistrust (the same old condemnation of desire) . But these distinctions themselves are another way of trapping desire for the advantage of a bureaucratic caste. Foucault reacts by denouncing the third party, saying that if there is popular justice, it does not issue from a tribunal.

One day the doctors are playing as usual. " Then he falls back into silence. A few years later, without ever speaking again, he dies. " 66 / Gilles Deleuze: It's a very beautiful story. As we develop a new schizoanalysis-something that we fervently hope for-the task will not be to ask the meaning of the phrase "The director is coming," but to ask ourselves what has occurred to allow this autistic patient, so completely turned inward on his own body, to create, even for a very short time, this little machine connected with the arrival of the director.
