E.2.9. The Heart of the Plot - Pt. XII - Excerpt from the essay «Money, Revolution and Acceleration in Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus», Obsolete Capitalism Free Press/Rizosphere, 2016

The heart of the plot

Nietzsche’s phrase “accelerate the processis essential in shaping the concept of a «headless revolution» that Deleuze, Guattari and the revolutionary Nietzschean community were elaborating in the years 1968 - 1975. To fully understand the meaning of The Strong of the Future we need a hypertextual reading of the content because as Deleuze said “a text is nothing but a cog in a larger extra-textual practice” (DI, 259) to prolong and make it fruitful. An alliance with Klossowskì’s exegesis of the fragment The Strong of the Future and his masterful book Nietzsche and the Vicious Circle is necessary. Klossowski defines The Strong of the future as the fragment at the «heart of the plot», Deleuze and Guattari understanding the powerful message of anti-capitalist conspiracy, transfer it into the «heart» of their accelerationist passage known as The Civilized Capitalist Machine, essential core of the entire book Anti-Œdipus. Theirs is an indirect and updated reply to Nietzsche’s sovereign anti-gregarious cast theory and a direct and affirmative reply to Klossowski’s revolutionary query of an anti-establishment and anti-market conspiracy. Foucault will share the same impressive newness as expressed in his Introduction to the American edition of Anti-Œdipus: “Anti-Œdipus shows first of all how much ground has been covered. But it does much more than that. It wastes no time in discrediting the old idols, even though it does have a great deal of fun with Freud. Most important, it motivates us to go further.” (INFL, 5) and about Klossowski he defines his Nietzsche and the Vicious Circle as the best book of philosophy ever read. What is then so precious and at the same time so subversive in Klossowski’s book about Nietzsche that makes the two French philosophers completely side with him?
