Théorie générale de la révolution ou hommage à feu Mikhaïl Bakounine

by Patrice Faubert Saturday, Apr. 14, 2018 at 3:30 AM

Tout a été dit, il reste à faire...

Et si la vie, cela n'était pas travailler ?

Et si la vie, cela n'était pas peindre ?

Et si la vie, cela n'était pas écrire ?

Et si la vie, cela n'était pas faire quelque chose ?

Et si la vie, cela n'était pas militer ?

Et si la vie, cela n'était pas faire du sport ?

Ce ne sont que des déterminismes culturels

C'est cela qui fait l'intellectuel ou le manuel

C'est cela qui fait l'entretien du séparé

Nous voulons être aimés

Nous voulons être respectés

Alors, nous nous agitons

En peinture, en poésie, nous lisons, nous travaillons

Puisque nous devons le faire

Et de toutes les manières

Pour que l'on nous aime

Pour que l'on nous respecte

Mais moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas le poète

Mais moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas le peintre

Mais moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas l'écrivain

Mais moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas le travail

Mais moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas le sportif

Et moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas sa pauvreté ou sa richesse

Et moi, j'aime l'individu

Et pas sa culture ou son ignorance

C'est l'individu que je vais voir

Quand il sait m'émouvoir

Et pas ses représentations

Et pas ses imitations

Des peintres, poètes, écrivains, travailleurs, oisifs

Partout, et des individus, nulle part

Aucune humanité, leurs yeux sont vides

Leurs têtes sont inhabitées, livides

Et l'on comprend pourquoi cent mille tonnes

De pesticides sont déversés

Dans la nature française, chaque année

Et l'on comprend pourquoi, l'alcool

Dont une folie sur deux est le bébé

Peut éliminer, quarante mille personnes chaque année

Malgré tout, 82 ans, l'on vit

Dans les quartiers riches

Et 54 ans, l'on vit

Seulement, dans les quartiers pauvres

Dans certaines régions et dans certains pays



Et voici, un extrait de l'excellent livre de feu Mikhaïl Bakounine ( 1814-1876 ), " Théorie générale de la révolution ", où le fondamental et l'essentiel sont quintessenciés, en quelques phrases atemporelles et futuristes.



" Considérés au point de vue de leur existence

terrestre, c'est à dire non fictive mais réelle, la masse des hommes présente un spectacle

tellement dégradant, si mélancoliquement pauvre d'initiative, de volonté et d'esprit, qu'il

faut être doué vraiment d'une grande capacité de se faire illusion pour trouver en eux une âme

immortelle et l'ombre d'un libre arbitre quelconque. Ils se présentent à nous comme des êtres

absolument et fatalement déterminés: déterminés avant tout par la nature extérieure, par la

configuration du sol et par toutes les conditions matérielles de leur existence; déterminés par

les innombrables rapports politiques, religieux et sociaux, par les coutumes, les habitudes,

les lois, par tout un monde de préjugés ou de pensées élaborées lentement par les siècles

passés, et qu'ils trouvent en naissant à la vie de la société, dont ils ne sont jamais les

créateurs, mais les produits d'abord et plus tard les instruments. Sur mille hommes on en

trouvera à peine un, duquel on puisse dire à un point de vue non absolu, mais relatif, qu'il veut

et qu'il pense de soi-même. L'immense majorité des individus humains, non seulement dans

les masses ignorantes, mais tout aussi bien dans les classes civilisées et privilégiées, ne

veulent et ne pensent que ce que tout le monde autour d'eux veut et pense; ils croient

sans doute vouloir et penser eux-mêmes, mais ils ne font que reprendre servilement,

avec des modifications tout à fait imperceptibles et nulles, les pensées et les volontés

d'autrui. "



Mikhaïl Bakounine ( 1814-1876 )

What if life was not working ?

And if life was not painting?

What if life was not writing?

What if life was not doing something?

And if life was not militant?

What if life was not doing sports?

These are just cultural determinisms

That's what makes the intellectual or the manual

That's what makes the maintenance of the separate

We want to be loved

We want to be respected

So, we are dealing

In painting, in poetry, we read, we work

Since we have to do it

And in every way

For us to be loved

To respect us

But I like the individual

And not the poet

But I like the individual

And not the painter

But I like the individual

And not the writer

But I like the individual

And not the work

But I like the individual

And not the sportsman

And I love the individual

And not his poverty or his wealth

And I love the individual

And not his culture or his ignorance

It's the individual I'm going to see

When he knows how to move me

And not his representations

And not his imitations

Painters, poets, writers, workers, idlers

Everywhere, and individuals, nowhere

No humanity, their eyes are empty

Their heads are uninhabited, livid

And we understand why a hundred thousand tons

Pesticides are spilled

In the French nature, every year

And we understand why, alcohol

One out of two madness is the baby

Can eliminate, forty thousand people each year

Nevertheless, 82 years, we live

In wealthy neighborhoods

And 54 years old, we live

Only in poor neighborhoods

In certain regions and in certain countries



And here is an excerpt from the excellent book by the late Mikhail Bakunin (1814-1876), "The General Theory of the Revolution", where the fundamental and the essential are quintessentiated, in a few timeless and futuristic sentences.



"Considered from the point of view of their existence

terrestrial, ie not fictional but real, the mass of men presents a spectacle

so degrading, so sadly melancholy in initiative, will, and spirit, that he

must be truly gifted with a great capacity to delude themselves to find in them a soul

immortal and the shadow of some free will. They present themselves to us as beings

absolutely and inevitably determined: determined above all by the external nature, by the

the configuration of the soil and by all the material conditions of their existence; determined by

innumerable political, religious and social relations, by customs, habits,

the laws, by a whole world of prejudices or thoughts slowly elaborated by the centuries

past, and that they are born in the life of society, of which they are never the

creators, but the products first and later the instruments. Out of a thousand men

will hardly find one, from which one can say from a non-absolute but relative point of view, that he wants

and that he thinks of himself. The vast majority of human individuals, not only in

the ignorant masses, but just as well in the civilized and privileged classes,

want and think only what everyone around them wants and thinks; they believe

no doubt wanting and thinking themselves, but they are only sluggishly resuming,

with absolutely imperceptible and nil changes, thoughts and wills

of others. "



Mikhail Bakunin (1814-1876)
