zazie the last revolutionary ( félix guattari )

Félix Guattari, Gérard Soulier, Gilles Deleuze

The tension is against the Super-I that is the representant of the Group ; a Group that hates the single one named as a perverted human being. It is the old trick. The young people are terrorized by the other group of students and among the Group hence becomes up the leadership of a commander that represent the Super-I that can obtain the power against the single one.

On May 1968 it happened a event very peculiar, small groups of young people risen up against the power of the authoritarian society, against the Super-I. Small groups against the police.

The desire of Liberation has catalized also around them a lot of groups of people as a feast, the beginning of the revolution was a feast of Liberation. The government machine fought against this liberation of desire so the liberation became the phantom of liberty. And, of course, it is pointless asking a good justice, a good police, or a cleaned State. The repressive society had crushed the desire, marginalized the desire.

marxism for the masses (herbert marcuse translates karl marx )

As large-scale industry advances, the creation of real wealth depends less on the labor time and the quantity of labor expended than on the power of the instrumentalities (Agentien) set in motion during the labor time. These instrumentalities, and their powerful effectiveness, are in no proportion to the immediate labor time which their production requires; their effectiveness rather depends on the attained level of science and technological progress; in other words, on the application of this science to the production.  …

 

Human labor then no longer appears as enclosed in the process of production—man rather relates himself to the process of production as supervisor and regulator (Wachter und Regulator). … He stands outside the process of production instead of being the principal agent in the process of production. … In this transformation, the great pillar of production and wealth is no longer the immediate labor performed by the man himself, nor his labor time, but the appropriation of his own universal productivity (Produktivkraft), i.e., his knowledge and his mastery of nature through his societal existence—in one word: the development of the societal individual (des gesellschaftlichen Individuums).

 

The theft of another man’s labor time, on which the social wealth still rests today, then appears as miserable basis compared with the new basis which large-scale industry itself has created. As soon as human labor, in its immediate form, has ceased to be the great source of wealth, labor time will cease, and must of necessity cease to be the measure of wealth, and the exchange value must of necessity cease to be the measure of use value.

 

The surplus labor of the mass of the population has thus ceased to be the condition for the development of social wealth (des allgemeinen Reichtums), and the idleness of the few has ceased to be the condition for the development of the universal intellectual faculties of man. The mode of production which rests on the exchange value thus collapses …

vampires in new england ( tommaso baccini )

The usual diet of a vampire (in greek or balkan area) is vegetarianism only in more recent times at a literary level becomes a blood eater (or devoted to hematophagy). In the ancient times (medieval age)  the witches were drinking the blood of children, then the ematophagy was conferred to vampires. Times ago the vampire was not specific blood eater, he was a monster not specialized, he was accused to bring the plague into the villages and waking up the corpses.

 

It is interesting the development of vampirism in New England (United states) in late Nineteenth century. This was really the last time when vapires (or presumed vampire) were burned, at least in the Western culture. In 1883 a mother of family, Mary Eliza Brown, died in a village named  Exeter (Rhode Island). He died of consumption. Five years later her daughter, Mary Olive died of the same disease. In 1892 died also her daughter Mercy. The father, George Brown, upset by these events, remembered the ancient tradition of that if blood remains in the body of a corpse it will be the cause of the death of the whole survived family. George wasn’t really sure of the tradition but the social pressure made over him brought him to calm the comunity of Exeter. He exhumed the corpses of Mary Eliza and Mary Olive in order to look at the conservation of dead bodies. The corpse of Mercy was relatively well conserved then from the corpse were eradicated the heart and liver then burned in an impromptu bonfire in the cemetery. With the ashes of Mercy put into a glass of water for Edwin the survived son of Mr Brown. But Edwin died anyway.

 

The same episode happened a century before. In Exeter the six children of Stukely Tillinghast died one after another. The first dead was Sarah, then she was accused by her brothers to wake up during the night she was sit on their chest hence all frightened being suffocated. The corpse of Sarah was exhumed and from the body was extraced the heart and burned. This credulity was spread not only in Rhode Island but also in Vermont and Connecticut. None of the inhabitants of these areas were informed of the tradition of vampires. They do not know the existence of vampires of eastern Europe neither the existence of the word “vampire”. This necrophilia was original of New England.

 

The truth about the deaths was of course a natural cause. It was an epidemic of tubercolosis. This disease was wide spread in the urban areas (but also in the rural areas of New England) because of the scarce hygiene and overcrowding. It was called “white plague” and it was very contagious able to exterminate in little time the whole familiy. Such a velocity of spreading disease causes the credulity of dead come back from the tomb to eat the living human beings. It is not the usual movie form of the vampire sucking blood with teeth on the neck of the victim. The dead were supposed to fed the living, so the little Mercy Brown was living on the living tissue and blood of Edwin.

 

The case of vampirism in New England seems an interpretation of the turbecolosis as the origin of the credulity in hematophagy like that in Eastern Europe. But in the greek tradition the treatment of tubercolosis was a collective lunch with the heart of the victims of vampirism.

herak ( readable matter in criminal anthropology )

The man talks about himself as a cutthroat of pigs, ‘At the beginning I do not understood the reason because I was required to join to the war. I thought it was very strange matter.

 

Then I realized clearly that reason. Once I received an order to kill three bosnian prisoners. The order was from my commander chief, “Herak, it is time to put in practice your skills. You see those three men? Cut their throats as you do with hogs!” No hesitation I have obeyed.’

criminology lessons

The interrogation report in police department shows that Henry was absolutely indifferent to life and the pains for himself and for the others. His perception of the world was at the border between real life and the nightmare. A psychiatrist said, ‘It seems Henry tells about homicides made by him as they happened in a telefilm than in the real life’.

At the end of the long interview and also exhausting confession Henry Lee Lucas gave a present to the californian detective Charles McLaughin, that has interrogated him with third degree interrogation, a photo with written : ‘To Charles, the most friendly man I ever known and I wish have as my close friend’.
