This short text is part of a collection of critical writings in progress concerning “civil anarchism”, as put forth by Venona Q. and Dark Matter publications, which is a response to a statement by the UK Anarchist Federation/Libcom denouncing the non-fatal shooting of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare in Genoa, Italy(1). Two anarchist comrades, Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito are accused of the action, which was claimed by Olga Cell-FAI/FRI. Solidarity to the accused, who are imprisoned in Ferrara, Italy. This fragment is simply a meandering series of thoughts, the results of a notepad and a rainy afternoon, rather than a ‘manifesto’ or the kind of dry political statement that it is in response to.
I. “By having carried out dozens of attacks against targets of the system, with especially destructive material results, we were and will always be precise. We aim specifically against the institutions and the officers of the system, giving special attention to not injure someone who is not a target to us.” CCF
Violence is neither good nor bad.
It is the State’s basis for it’s domination and consent. Any one who breaks this relationship is usually deemed criminal and/or insane. Any acts used in this transgression are usually deemed “unlawful” or further, “terrorism”. (more…)

‘The definition of “trajectory” is indivisible in a modular fraction in the course of time, along a border composed between time course and time commencing in the passage from the limit that gives a boundary to practicability.’
‘IMMEDIATE SYLLOGISM IN THE MEDIATED’ – ‘THE TEMPLE OF PROPHECY’
‘The digression is the border fathomed in search of a structural form that becomes and extends its foundations between a time limit and a limitative term of a limbo in a prophesized temporality.’
‘DECOMPOSED AXIOM’ – ‘THE TEMPLE OF PROPHECY’
‘The identifying structure now stays at the “centre” of a fatal ceremony, it is now visible in a perceptive manner, it expresses the clarifying signs in the essence of a representation of a symbolic representation in the immanence of the approaching prophecy.’
‘STRUCTURAL ELEMENT IN FLATNESS’ – ‘THE TEMPLE OF PROPHECY’
‘The leaning produced in an analogy between “reached-out” in the pretension and a “hanging” at the officious liturgical ceremony prepares the simulation of the leadership role in a concealment of the preparatory acts.’
‘APODICTIC’ – ‘IMPEDING RIGOR MORTIS’
‘The disposition of the events is the directing in a translation of an inclined deduction in reversibility between Abnegation and Invocation.’

THE TWO FACES OF SILENCE
Nothingness as Experience of oneself – Nothingness as Escape from oneself.
‘The ego, therefore, exists. But does it exist in the way it appears to me? No, because it appears to me in a way that involves the conformation of my senses and intellect, i.e. in a way that does not reflect reality in itself. My appearance is nothing but a sign, not a copy of reality.
The awareness of my ego is made by my appearance.
It makes me aware of an ego that is not my real ego. (more…)

THE DEPERSONALIZATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL
“The crack on a line-margin”
‘The redemptive void
Takes life away from those who dare
In a dazzling recidivist excess
Of a white and luminous death
In individual fatigue
That Cerberus who watches over
At the doors of your personal Inferno.’
From ‘the Fatigue’, Maurizio De mone
In the cold and dark cells of redemption and systematic rehabilitation, one enters an ostensive world, where perception is nullified on the threshold and in the margin, delineated by the parameters of an impeding segregation.
The non-belonging plunges the understanding of the acts like something receptive in a prostrating transience.
Transience transfuses the emotional drives in search of a representative belonging.
Representation dilutes the time of showing oneself and appearing under the guise of induced sub-concatenation of the relation producing depersonalization. (more…)

From Zine Library:
Max Stirner (1806-1856) was the philosopher of conscious egoism. His book Der Einzige und sein Eigenthum (published in English in 1907 as The Ego and His Own) is the fundamental work of that philosophy and the philosophical basis of individualist anarchism. The German poet and anarchist writer John Henry Mackay (1864-1933) carefully researched Stirner’s life and published his biography in 1897, with a third, definitive edition in 1914. Hubert Kennedy’s translation is the first in English.
Introduction: The Story of My Work, 1889-1914
1. Early Youth 1806-1826
2. Student and Teaching Years, 1826-1844
3. “The Free” at Hippel’s: In the Fifth Decade of the Century
4. Max Stirner, 1840-1845
5. Der Einzige und sein Eigenthum, 1845
6. The Final Decade, 1845-1856

In the field of psychopathology, ‘nihilist delirium’ represents the negation of personality and/or the negation of one’s own body or of the surrounding world.
This text draws inspiration from the study of psychopathology, not to look for a problem concerning an alleged disease to be cured but to look for the eradication of so called ‘normality’ in the nihilist-egoist field, a question that seems to interest so much the anarchists totally immersed – and in a totalitarian way – in the social and in their ‘concreteness’.
The plunging of the nihilist dagger – as marked in ‘vertex abyss’ [Vertice Abisso] – sticks in the hands of those who, as individuals, do not want to surrender to the easy absolutizations of society and of the above mentioned ‘social’ anarchists; the dagger is placed in the hands of the individual who elevates himself above ‘everything’.
Relativism permeates the nihilist research that wants to penetrate in the rotten flesh of motionless determined thought, typical of adduced morality. (more…)

Nihilism is not only a contemplation of the vanity of things or the conviction that all things deserve to go in ruin; one puts oneself at work and ruins things… this is, so to speak, illogical; but the nihilist doesn’t believe in the constraint of being logic… it is the state of strong spirits and wills and they can’t stay motionless in front of the no ‘of the judgement’ – the no of action comes from their nature.
Annihilation through the hand indulges in the annihilation through the judgement. 1
FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF THE ITALIAN CRIMINAL TRIAL
1. THE PRINCIPLE OF EQUALITY (FORMAL AND SUBSTANTIAL)
It is the fundamental principle of the Italian law and as such it conditions necessarily all the supporters of the law. It is sanctioned by article 13 of the Constitution, according to which ‘all citizens have equal dignity and are equal in front of the law, without distinction of sex, race, language, political opinions, personal and social conditions (paragraph 1).

The parabola Ope Legis is the existential abode of those who redeem their lives in the ordinary-order of life.
The parabola stops and nullifies any existential movement that pretends the negation of the juridical ‘law’ and the right to man’s moral rules.
This is in open conflict with social anarchists – who follow the path of the penal code any time the face of justice shows itself under the guise of a judge’s robes.
The Fragmentation of life in relativism is the essence of the Nihilist – wandering exception in a continuous becoming of the Chaos that destroys the absolute and that permeates human society.
In the destruction of man’s moral rules there is also the negation of the salvation through instruments aiming at a solely technical defence, which nullify all singularities.
Ahead with the nihilist attack and the destruction of any human-sentient rule:
A Nihilist attack against the body of the moral judicial monster…

Translated from the Italian by Apio Ludd:
Ah! The odor and the stench blend.
Climbing the peak requires sharp nails and hands ready for the most painful wounds.
While you climb the peak of a decadent humanity, they fall, the rocks that crumble under your fingers fall.
To act boldly! To dare! Here they are, raging, the popular fears blended with Ressentiment toward our individual sovereignty… (more…)

This is a text from Federico Buono, one of the comrades investigated in the operation ‘Ardire’. He has chosen a non-judicial stance as concerns the charges pressed against him. May the nihilist germ spread.
AN ENDLESS VERTEX IN THE ABYSS
Anarchist and amoral anti-legalism
‘And in this way, whatever he has to endure, he does not despair in salvation. Fate leads him to the coffin, tied to the mad rope of hope.’
‘The Illusions of Mankind’ Eduardo Von Hartmann
In the afternoon of yesterday, 19th June, I was stopped in the city of Catania, where I’m living at the moment, by two Digos officers [political police] and taken to the police barracks.
There I was notified the act concerning the investigation on 270bis set up by nun Manuela Comodi. (more…)

This text was written during the feverish days of my trial for aggravated theft.
I’ve never wanted to know anything about such trial nor did I ask anybody about its result.
In my experience, my way of doing is an attempt to deny the law and live in incertitude. This makes my words even stronger.
