Autour du drame nègre

by: Louis Ernst

Le continent noir se débrouille dans un labyrinthe de difficultés : il inspire mille questions et autant de réponses contradictoires. Les économistes, les sociologues, les professionnels de la politique dignes de ce nom sourient malicieusement dans les États dont les responsables de la chose publique confondent le fait de hisser chaque matin un drapeau national devant les édifices publics avec une baguette magique. Ce folklore civique séduit les mauvais comédiens. On ne peut pas anesthésier la conscience humaine, malgré les prouesses que multiplient quotidiennement la psychanalyse et la technologie. Un tel défi du bon sens complique paradoxalement les tâches du Nègre.

About This Book
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.
