This article attempts to point out a need for separation and division, and the need to build a new kind of solidarity—more comrades are slowly forming, unseen. It is possible to generate new forms of strength without relying on yesterday. To separate is to divorce oneself as much as possible from institutions—whether it is the institutions within the institution or another institution outside the institution that claims to be independent. This article advocates a return to the individual, rather than individualism, where one can move away from the individual/collective dichotomy and build ‘islands’. The archipelago is a multitude. The first step to becoming a multitude is to return to the individual, to dismantle the ‘collective’, which is both convenient and illusory.
