By Guy Debord

« L'époque ne demande plus seulement de répondre vaguement à l. a. query "Que faire ?" [...] II s'agit maintenant, si l'on veut rester dans le courant, de répondre, presque chaque semaine, à los angeles query : "Que se passe-t-il ?" [...]

Le travail important qui me paraît à envisager maintenant - comme contraire complémentaire de l. a. Société du spectacle qui a décrit l'aliénation figée (et los angeles négociation qui y était implicite) -, c'est l. a. théorie de l'action historique. C'est faire avancer, dans son second qui est venu, los angeles théorie stratégique. À ce stade, et pour parler ici schématiquement, les théoriciens de base à reprendre et développer ne sont plus tant Hegel, Marx et Lautréamont que Thucydide-Machiavel-Clausewitz. »

On verra, pour ce faire, remark tout au lengthy de ces six années d'une correspondance riche en analyses et en projets divers - l'étroite collaboration qui s'est établie entre un éditeur et son auteur a rendu attainable cette nouvelle stratégie. C'est ainsi que, par los angeles voie du cinéma, Gérard Lebovici offrait à man Debord un champ plus vaste où il serait libre de s'exprimer. Trois movies seront réalisés durant cette période.
