“…With the aim of translating not only text, but also theory in practise, being aware of the dangerousness of our decision and of using it to strike with all our strength what oppresses us, crushing every logic of power over the individual and locating ourselves in fierce conflict with the existent. This project is the result of the will of some anarchist individualities who refuse the concept of a formal editorial group, and instead invite to the most total and informal collaboration all who are interested in this project and offer their own contribution to the realization of eventual editorial project affinities that we fiercely hope are materialized outside of the virtual context.”
“Screech, graze o my coarse pen of fire and of energy upon the white candor of this sheet, as a viper tongue grazes upon the tender throat of an innocent child to give him, with venom, death. Away, get away from me me all the ideology, the theosophy, the philosophy dogmatic and political; distance from me every preestablished system: it has all fallen incinerated under the corroding flames of my negating spirit.” Renzo Novatore

We start from here, from the firm conviction that the sharing of experiences and reflections of affinity is an unavoidable moment of the continuous attack against the existent. It is exactly this moment, and not an empty internationalism of mere facade, that breaks down the tyranny of space and time, allowing the spread of actions, thoughts and suggestions, in spite of geographic and linguistic obstacles. We don’t hesitate to express the wonder that struck us during the last year, seeing the formation of a constellation, whose genesis is autonomous and self-determined, of individualities, sometimes united in groups with or without a name, conscious of the power of their own inner chaos. With a growing frequency, we are approached with invitations to reflexion, technical suggestions to act, theoretical and practical speculations, but above all with a tangible will of cooperation, without any dogmatism or a pre-determined direction, with the end of weaving a really polyphonic discourse.
“Every meaning we print on paper, we want to find a way for it to escape from theory and transform into practice. Only in practise are all theoretical values tested.” Conspiracy of Cells of Fire
Why ParoleArmate (ArmedWords)? For the simple fact that every written or spoken subversive word becomes a bullet, exploded in the back of authority, riddled without pity by the verbal and practical shots of rebels around the world; because every text, every conspiratorial consideration becomes lead that lodges into the battered body of Power, which does not hesitate to unleash its watchdogs against us as punishment in order to deter us, but uselessly; because every letter is ablaze with the blood and the revolt of thousands of individualities who don’t accept their submission and who pass to action without delegation, in the first person: shadows in the night who slip through dark alleys in order to let dominion taste their revenge.
Above all, it is the words which find confirmation in action that arouse our greatest interest, those words that, equipped sometimes with an imaginative character, are able to escape from the ordinariness of everyday life, opening in this way unexpected apertures and causing irremediable breaches in the lives of those who have the will to make them their own. It is these words that we translate with enthusiasm, that we try to spread through channels we feel affinity with, considering these as fundamental experiences in the spreading of the above-mentioned texts. We took the initiative once again, naturally with different times and methods, ready to advance in our path, firmer than before in not waiting for someone else to realize what we believe useful, but realizing now what we want to do.
“We must be disciplined with ourselves because technology and information are also viruses that can ensnare us and threaten to absorb us into their own stratagem in which we end up replicating a cybernetic version of reality.” 325 / Anty-Copyright Network
We subscribe completely to what the few lines quoted above say, aware of what risks we take, but yet with serious conviction to give space to words that, through time, have become weapons, armed words, and that therefore are undoubtedly part of the arsenal of every sincere destroyer of the present world. Words that have sublimated their condition, irreversibly fusing themselves with action, escaping from a content that is merely informative and sterilely aggregative. Those words that with scorn and anger distance themselves from the consensus inherent in the society that imprisons us, words that with dignity and pride convey messages of total war, that maximize the destructive character of the action of the one “who after a long, gasping and desperate search has retrieved his own self and has placed it, haughty and proud ‘on the margins of the society’, denying anything the right to judge it” (Renzo Novatore), and that return to the individual her or his entire offensive range.
“The State cannot forbear the claim to determine the individual’s will, to speculate and count on this. For the State it is indispensable that nobody have an own will; if one had, the State would have to exclude (lock up, banish, etc.) this one; if all had, they would do away with the State.“ Max Stirner
ParoleArmate aims to be a space of discussion, translation and propagation of texts of considered affinity. The primary aim is to share publications, of any form, which we believe are necessary to add to the already-existing collection of reflections. We will continue the activity of translating claims, letters and insights through the consolidated channels of affinity and those that we hope will be born and that will prove themselves. With the aim of translating not only text, but also theory in practise, being aware of the dangerousness of our decision and of using it to strike with all our strength what oppresses us, crushing every logic of power over the individual and locating ourselves in fierce conflict with the existent. This project is the result of the will of some anarchist individualities who refuse the concept of a formal editorial group, and instead invite to the most total and informal collaboration all who are interested in this project and offer their own contribution to the realization of eventual editorial project affinities that we fiercely hope are materialized outside of the virtual context.
Also we take this opportunity to propose a reading that escapes from its normal conception, fleeing from the perspective of the passive reader through the interpretation and use of the texts how, when and to whatever extent one wishes, giving to the proper Self the task of decoding, so that it branches in the preferred direction, thus taking the material considered necessary for the construction of one’s own arsenal of war.
