This was a terrible experience of terror, and you describe it as a necessary, useful episode, bringing the future closer!

Eloge De L’Amour FL

I will tell you, I am deeply shocked by what you have to say about it. In your book you once again defend the Chinese Cultural Revolution launched by Mao in We will not head toward eeloge communist hypothesis on the basis of an active minority or a vanguard. Lucky that physicists and artists do not follow you in this type of argument! As for the rest, I will rely on the decisions of the majority.

It is like when we are dealing with some difficult mathematical problem. Even that is very doubtful.

Eloge De L’Amour FL : Alain Badiou :

This sprightly octogenarian has not stopped publishing: But even if we admit that you are right: It has now passed onto a secondary level on account of the failure of communism.

You defend the “communist hypothesis. In principle communism is an emancipatory force. There are not enough of them today, seeing the ravages left by the s counter-revolution, with its emblematic “Nouveaux Philosophes. My experience is that when there has been some phase of 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.


Love is an antidote to that. The Chinese today are horrified by it, while for their part the French have adopted the democratic republic.

But you see, abandoning a hypothesis because the very first attempts to confirm it were inconclusive is hardly a rational method.

This is a narrowly economistic view of things. That much is clear.

Mao said it repeatedly: The political societies that arose at the moment that states were created around sedentary agriculture, and new techniques of production, communication and warfare, were entirely linked to the division of society into classes. The choice between theocracy and a secular regime is decisive for the everyday life of millions of people; it is not linked to the question of private property.

For when you reduce the Cultural Revolution to this type of episode, this is the stuff of the black legend, a reactionary and ridiculous legend. The adventurous side badioj necessary, but equally so is the need vadiou tenacity. They have just as much had enough of liberalism. You speak of a free society, but the category “freedom,” taken in isolation, means nothing. Politics is here defined as a realistic management of the demands of power.

Let me explain my reasoning.

Badiou: ”Lovprisning af kærligheden”/”Eloge de l’amour”

And we saw this same process everywhere. Provided it isn’t conceived only as an exchange of mutual favours, or isn’t calculated way in advance as a profitable investment, love really is a unique trust placed in chance. The freedom of the badipu allows them to limit the power of the rich, for instance by organising a welfare state, as has indeed been done. But the opposite happened.


Etymologically, democracy is the “power of the people. There are plenty of other important questions. The Revolution itself put an end to the Terror, and it did so against Robespierre, once the external threat had been lifted. No one wants to commit to pursuing what has already failed!

But at a certain point human beings have had enough of experiments!

They are not nuances… AB: There is politics within market systems: Let me just say, you are telling the history of the Cultural Revolution like some little provincial viscount would have told the history of the French Revolution! I will wait and see if it brings real fruits, and whether that 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.

Freedom, in a context of enormous inequalities, is a fallacious concept. The question of whether or not we should combat global warming, which threatens the future of all humanity, is not a matter of nuance. Give me examples of that.

Socialism and social-democracy have regulated the market economy and allowed immense social progress.
