Haïti, le peuple de la liberté

by: Menant Marc

Au terme d’une double bataille pour la liberté et l’indépendance, les esclaves de la colonie française de Saint-Domingue imposent à Bonaparte l’indépendance du pays, proclamée le 1er janvier 1804, sous le nom amérindien d’Haïti.

Le tremblement de terre de 2010 est l’occasion pour Marc Menant de raconter, dans un récit truculent, les vrais héros de cette bataille contre la servitude : Mackandal, Boukman, Toussaint Louverture, Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Henri Christophe et les plus radicaux, moins connus à l’étranger : Hyacinthe, Capois, Lamour Dérance, qui écrasèrent les troupes de Bonaparte.

Entre oppression, soumission, révolte et indépendance, Marc Menant raconte avec jubilation et générosité les combats du peuple haïtien et sa victoire.

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.
