Mémoire au département d’État américain

by: Firmin Anténor présenté par Soukar Michel

A la disparition d’Anténor Firmin en 1911, dépérit le nationalisme progressiste haïtien du 19e siècle, fait surtout de mysticisme et d’abstraction, incapable d’identifier et de contrer l’émergence violente de la nouvelle donne : l’impérialisme qui va dominer la scène mondiale à partir du 20e siècle.

Que le sort de ce bel échantillon d’humanité, avec ses limites et pour son patriotisme, ne soit jamais oublié !

(Michel Soukar – Présentation)

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.
