About

CANNIBALIST MANIFESTO

Cannibalism alone unites us. Socially. Economically. Philosophically.
☺ ☼ ☻
The world’s single law. Disguised expression of all individualism, of all collectivisms. Of all religions. Of all peace treaties.
☺ ☼ ☻
Tupi or not tupi, that is the question.
☺ ☼ ☻
What clashed with the truth was clothing, that raincoat placed between the inner and outer worlds. The reaction against the dressed man. American movies will inform us.
☺ ☼ ☻
We want the Carib Revolution. Greater than the French Revolution. The unification of all productive revolts for the progress of humanity. Without us, Europe wouldn’t even have its meager declaration of the rights of man.
The Golden Age heralded by America. The Golden Age. And all the girls.
☺ ☼ ☻
But we never permitted the birth of logic among us.
☺ ☼ ☻
Down with Father Vieira. Author of our first loan, to make a commission. The illiterate king had told him: put that on paper, but without a lot of lip. The loan was made. Brazilian sugar was signed away. Vieira left the money in Portugal and brought us the lip.
☺ ☼ ☻
We already had justice, the codification of vengeance. Science, the codification of Magic. Cannibalism. The permanent transformation of the Tabu into a totem.
☺ ☼ ☻
Down with the reversible world, and against objectified ideas. Cadaverized. The stop of thought that is dynamic. The individual as victim of the system. Source of classical injustices. Of romantic injustices. And the forgetting of inner conquests.
☺ ☼ ☻
Routes. Routes. Routes. Routes. Routes. Routes. Routes.
☺ ☼ ☻
Magic and life. We had the description and allocation of tangible goods, moral goods, and royal goods. And we knew how to transpose mystery and death with the help of a few grammatical forms.
☺ ☼ ☻
I asked a man what the Law was. He answered that it was the guarantee of the exercise of possibility. That man was named Galli Mathias. I ate him.
☺ ☼ ☻
Before the Portuguese discovered Brazil, Brazil had discovered happiness.
☺ ☼ ☻
Down with Memory as a source of custom. The renewal of personal experience.
☺ ☼ ☻
We are concretists. Ideas take charge, react, and burn people in public squares. Let’s get rid of ideas and other paralyses. By means of routes. Believe in signs; believe in sextants and in stars.
☺ ☼ ☻
Everyday love and the capitalist way of life. Cannibalism. Absorption of the sacred enemy. To transform him into a totem. The human adventure. The earthly goal. Carnal at first, the instinct becomes elective, and creates friendship. When it is affective, it creates love. When it is speculative, it creates science. It takes detours and moves around. At time it is degraded. Low cannibalism, agglomerated with the sins of catechism--envy, usury, calumny, murder. We are acting against this plague of a supposedly cultured and Christianized peoples. Cannibals.
