Address to those who would rather abolish harmful phenomena than manage them - Encyclopedie des Nuisances
An essay proclaiming the pivotal role of "harmful phenomena"--broadly defined to include everything from nuclear meltdowns to the construction of a superhighway--in the resurgence of a movement of "anti-economic and anti-statist emancipation", and warning against reformist "ecologism" as "the principle agent of censorship of the social critique latent in the struggle against harmful phenomena".
The Encyclopedie des Nuisances pronounces its judgment against GMOs on the occasion of the 2001 trial of one of its members, Rene Riesel, for the sabotage of transgenic rice in France, and predicts that "a series of high-tech debacles will deprive us of the comforts of this artificial life and will brutally plunge us into a devastated world" unless a resistance movement against "necrotechnologies" arises and puts an end to the industrial sterilization of the world.
1988 text published by the French group Encyclopedie des Nuisances in the aftermath of Chernobyl discussing the ongoing collapse of the "guaranteed survival" offered by spectacular society and the prospects for the reassertion of the revolutionary impulse in new conditions and "the revolutionary abolition of all forms of irresponsible hierarchy".
