"Just as [integral society] hardly tolerates anything radically different, so it also keeps an eye out to make sure that anything which is thought or said serves some specific change or has, as they put it, something positive to offer. Thought is subjected to the subtlest censorship of the terminus ad quem: whenever it appears critically, it has to indicate the positive steps desired. If such positive goals turn out to be inaccessible to present thinking, why then thought itself ought to come across resigned and tired, as though such obstructions were its own fault and not the signature of the thing itself. Concrete and positive suggestions for change merely strengthen this hindrance, either as ways of administrating the unadministrable, or by calling down repression from the monstrous totality itself."
