The Impossible, Patience

the impossible patience

This is a series of essays by Alejandro de Acosta that are deep, original, and provocative new anarchist thinking engaged in the problems of the 21st century–which include language, nihilism, Delueze, Thacker, critique, and much much more. It is also a type of conclusion, as A de A. is clearly expressing several types of farewell in these pages… but to what exactly?

If an “anarchist” project were constituted, not to preserve itself and thus the milieu (usually in this order in terms of explicitly stated goals, and in reverse in terms of actual operations), but to seek out those who have quit the milieu, numerous salutary effects might eventually be felt: decreased infl uence of “young masculinity” (team-building homosociality as the default social bond), less disappointment and more curiosity about the stakes of quitting, maybe even encouragement towards such abandonment as a sign of intelligence.

Ardent Press has published this beautiful edition of The Impossible, Patience with doubled letterpress impressions and a distinctively precious design aesthetic as a way to participate in this most fully formed expression of The Beautiful Idea.

This book is a selection of the articles from the paper that are relevant to today in the US anarchist scene.
