The Conspiracist Manifesto: An Evening with Robert Hurley


“When compared to the question of suppressing anarchy, every other question sinks into insignificance.” ––Theodor Roosevelt

Much noted translator Robert Hurley has been translating French philosophers such as Deleuze, Foucault, Bataille, Tiqqun and Invisible Committee into English for nearly four decades.

Robert will be joining us the evening of June 6th to talk about his recent translation of *Conspiracist Manifesto*, an anonymously authored book about war which debuted in French just before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

In today’s age of QAnon, “fake news”, foiled secret service plots to take out the VP, real or alleged lab leaks, many associate conspiracies with reactionary or right-wing thinking. But the European worker’s movement also began as a conspiracy. Notable conspiracies like Haymarket played an important role in the American anarchist movement as well. More recently, the events of May 28th 2020 demonstrate that today “more than ever, conspiracy is part of the solution.” (CM, 357)

*Conspiracist Manifesto* asks how resistance can be organized in a world that has truly been turned on its head–– a world in which truth is a moment of falsehood. It asks whether a true use of the false is possible, or if such is indeed necessary. As the Manifesto states, “Those who believed that the pandemic episode was a parenthesis and not a constituent act are in for a disappointment.” Rezoning the notion of “conspiracy theory” from the alt-right to the Left, the Manifesto is daring and timely.
