from Guy Debord

To Jacques Le Glou
15 November 1982
Dear Jacques:

One has still not seen the putsch [in Spain] come: lost in route, but perhaps lost for everyone.

Attached[1] is a beautiful example of the supercession of polemics. There is actually nothing to say by way of response to these cunts; they quite demolish themselves and reciprocally (to really taste the salt in this mezcal, I believe that you cannot overlook the fact that [Alain] Badiou was and remains Maoist carrion).

Quite amicable,

[1] Rubbish and debris displayed upon the release of the film "In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni," by different authorized sources (October, 1982) which gathered together fourteen reviews that were published in the press in 1981. [Translator's note: though completed in 1978, Debord's last film, In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni was first screened in May 1981 at three theaters in the Latin Quarter in Paris. These screenings seem to have lasted at least until September 1981. On 29 September 1981, Debord wrote to Gerard Lebovici that, at the Cinema Le Contrescarpe, "our audience grows . . . slowly but inexorably!"]
