It is with this in mind that I want to discuss two key features of political suicide which I consider firmly rooted in the project of radical democratic politics and antagonism. The first feature is the tendency in acts of political suicide to resemble acts of explicit theatricality that stage the violence of death in its various and unique ways as almost in an effort to reclaim a life that has been stolen which in a complex metaphorical, theological sense suggests that one can continue ‘living’ once again. Here we are confronted, I claim, with a paradoxical affirmative reversal emanating from such radical performativity that performs not only the act of death but the violence it requires in order to go past it—so that, as Bataille believes, life may again be revealed but ‘not until the moment it gives out’—in other words, not until the very moment of death. Such acts then exert a sheer theatricality that dramatises a type of extreme violence so much inwardly as outwardly, almost like being exposed for everyone to see. In this particular sense, therefore, I argue that the evident theatricality that envelops political suicides is a conscious political act of dissent and has little to do with the issues of self-hate or despair usually attributed to the event of a person taking her or his own life. And the second constitutive feature of political suicide, which is much related to the first, and which I will later attempt to explicate in more detail, is the issue of powerlessness and vulnerability, which essentially deals with issues of ‘value’ and ‘sovereignty’. Their examination will also help illuminate the first feature of the inherent violence of death in political suicide more clearly.

The funniest thing about being at uni right now is that I have a flatmate, but I have no idea who they are or what they look like. I am 98% sure they exist because I hear them going to the kitchen in the evening, a few hours after I've cooked dinner. I have never seen them. I think I know which room they're in. Our schedules are so separate, we never see each other. Sometimes I am tempted to go to the kitchen when I hear the footsteps in the hall, but I never do.
Theoretically, I live with someone.

I'm too tried to concentrate today so I'll study for a couple of hours and then take the day off because I'm not getting stuff done effectively anyway.
How are you doing?
