There is no transactional commensurability between the State of Capital and the Common Community.
They are governed by mutually annihilating logics, since the function of the former is to valorize a false universal at the expense of all particulars whereas the function of the latter is to establish the existence of all particulars as real instantiations of the true universal.
The lack of transactional commensurability or exchangeability between the two systems also foregoes the possibility of any discrete momentary “transition period” between the two. This is because a transitional period functioning a mediator between the two systems requires there to be a transitional point between the former system and the middle period, and between the middle period and the latter system. But this practically amounts to one of two things: either the transition never even could possibly begin (infinite regress; Xeno’s paradox), or if it pretends to begin it can only do so by force and not by justified reason (authoritarian politics). To pretend to be able to go from the former system to the latter system by way of a mediating transition is to come in the guise of the latter system while really being the former system in a different form. This different form can only pretend to be the latter system nominally, but not actually.
So how do we make sense of transitioning from the former system, the State of Capital, to the latter system, the Common Community, successfully, without accidentally re-instantiating the former?
We do so by relinquishing the need to think that there’s any place to “go” or “reach” somewhere. By dropping the expectation of “the” revolution of the future. By understanding that there is utterly nowhere to go, no “here” nor “there”.
The Common Community is the transcendental condition of possibility for the erection of the State of Capital. The State of Capital requires the Common Community, but the Common Community does not need it. The SoC is completely dependent upon the CC, but the CC is relatively independent from the SoC. If the SoC can be said to exist, so necessarily does the CC. So revolution not a matter of “moving” to the next moment, phase, or stage, but rather a matter of facilitating in the overwhelming, the engulfing, the smothering of the State of Capital by the Common Community.
The Common Community is not something we wait for, it is something we have always been, and always are. It is the basis of our being alive. But we have been taught to be unable to recognize it and we are made limited in our ability to fully express its powers. So our militancy should not strive to establish a completely new world from the ashes of the old, but rather to re-discover in a higher re-articulation, the true world that was always there waiting to be fully expressed. The seed of this true essence was planted since the genesis of the very first community, yet whose growth was stunted by the fall from this community. Through the grace of universal truth and justice, we may be able to nurture this growth into full fledged maturity. Then we would have returned to the garden from whence we came, realizing also that we never truly left it in the first place.
