The task is to bring up to date the four fundamental principles of communist society: But you see, abandoning a hypothesis because the very first attempts to confirm it were inconclusive is hardly a rational method. As for the rest, I will rely on the decisions of the majority.

Once again, the experience of the democratic Left shows that we can reform the system. No one wants to commit to pursuing what has already failed! It takes us into key areas of the experience of what amlur difference and, essentially, leads to the idea that you can experience the world from the perspective of difference.

It is necessary to win a majority.

This was a terrible elogd of terror, and you badiiu it as a necessary, useful episode, bringing the future closer! Politics is here defined as a realistic management of the demands of power. You are like Dumas fils, who saw nothing in the Paris Commune but petroleuses [arsonist women] in rags.

And that is the case in capitalism, which you defend. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. How can anyone be surprised that this very brief experience, which was conducted for the first time in history in Russia and China, did not immediately find its stable form, and temporarily failed?


The history of socialism, as combined with freedom, shows that we can secure considerable progress even if we keep the system of private property, which has established its efficiency on the economic plane. I will take the example of the Great Leap Forward in China at the end of the s.

Today, individuals own assets equivalent to what 3 billion others do! He also announced that he would soon be publishing The Immanence of Truthscompleting a trilogy that also includes Being and Event and Logics of Worlds. When the numbers cause you problems, they are false!

And since the Chinese countryside had even beforehand been at the threshold of subsistence, this extreme communism created an appalling famine. Mao said it repeatedly: I will wait and see if it brings real fruits, and whether ajour contributes to regenerating the communist hypothesis and making it once again possible for this hypothesis to have its own independent organisation, its own popular force.

My experience is that when there has been some phase amouur crisis in social democracy, with the emergence of a more ideologised, more active fringe, this has always been a matrix for the resurgence of the communist hypothesis. Without doubt there are are nuances between a free-marketeer administration and social-liberalism.

Socialism and social-democracy have regulated the market economy and allowed immense social progress. Give me examples of that. But, equally, I have myself long criticised vanguardist notions.

When I assert the need for a new communism, I also bear the consequences that must come from a balance sheet of the past. And not only colonialism! In today’s world, it is generally thought that individuals only pursue their self-interest. They are notAB: And there we need intellectuals. And this division is itself based on the private appropriation of goods that ought to have been considered common.


I do not defend capitalism, I am for aour market economy regulated by the state, which is not the same thing. But the world to which all that leads is totally unjust, if you consider how things ought to be: You condemn the means that were employed in the communist experience.

What happens in the domain of mathematics does not apply ipso facto to society. Risk and adventure must be re-invented against safety and comfort. That is a different question. But the numbers were false, as we found out with the fall of the Berlin Wall!

Even that is very doubtful. Politics is then a matter bdaiou settling the dispute between those who possess and those who do not. You sacrifice freedom to equality. Yet you happily go along continuing under the yoke of capital. The suppression of freedom by the Party leads to domination by the communist oligarchy, which creates a new form of inequality.
