Hi, Slavoj!

We received the news that you have been supporting us in every way - in theory and in practice. You are awesome! This has proven to be the continuation of the political liberation miracle-movement, whose birth for us now is unbelievable. I love miracles and their idiosyncracies. All of our activity is full of wonder.
The inmates are learning 'about the violence'.

Thanks for everything!
Good luck to all.

Affects, shame, idiosyncrasies, associationsx and LIBERATION
Mr. Zizek is, beside a philosopher, a lacanist psychoanalyst. The lacanaist school has bee the one of Guattari too, whose theories are very directly associated to the happening techniques used by pussy riot.

As everyone knows, the copernican turnn in philosophy with Kant was one away from psychology, away from feelings, away from affects, away from ethics pursuing happiness, hedonistic ethics, away fom critics of religion, from ethics with an eternal prospective and deep philosophy of religion, away from radical analytical crticisdn of power and state - away from Spinoza.

Now, the father of philosophical liberation, Spinoza himself, had two relevant insights for us: Affects, feelings, are only to overcome with stronger affects or feelinsg and: shame and aversion are kinds of unlust, more precise: hate, which is always bad.

So, in order to overcome the hate of aversion and shame one has to evoke strong affects and feelings, beside reason, stronger than the hate of aversion and shame - which Nadya likes to put together in "idiosynkrasies". This is what has made pussy riot to some kind of martyrs for a very good cause, action.
These very deep insights on the ground of any serous arts, aesthtics, psychology, pädagogics, even medicin, practice of peolpe in general, especially in public, are pretty well known by intellectuals, academics of all kinds.

So we have to classes of public. One class, who knows about the "carthartic" value, "healing" value of happenings challenging high inetesity idiosyncrasies and the other class, who are bound to be liberated by its affects. Unfourtunately many intellectuals forget the knowledge about the spinozistic/guattarien (anti-oedipe, 1972!!!) psychology of happenings and write in a manner, as if they don't know it. This is not the case with Mr. Zizek.
I wonder, to what great extent the action is "misunderstood".

Of course, the russian gouvernment, in Nadyas letter present as Putinis, is aware of this spinozistic psychology as well (psychology of association). Even priest konw it nowadays in general, more than 300 years after Spinoza's dead!!!.

As the anti-oedipe is about 40 years old, it has taken much to much time to come in evewrday peoply insights and action. I mentionm this, to pimpoint to the great flux of liberation, pussy riot is moviing with.
