Download E-books LA DESOBEISSANCE CIVILE (BILINGUE FRANCAIS / ANGLAIS) + LE DISCOURS DE LA SERVITUDE VOLONTAIRE annoté PDF

Cette édition vous présente deux ouvrages fondateurs du idea de désobéissance civile

:

  • los angeles DÉSOBÉISSANCE CIVILE, de Henry David THOREAU
  • at the accountability OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, sa model originale en anglais
  • LE DISCOURS DE l. a. SERVITUDE VOLONTAIRE, d’Étienne de l. a. BOETIE et son advent, notes et références de Paul Bonnefon ainsi que,
  • LE MÉMOIRE INÉDIT TOUCHANT L’ÉDIT DE JANVIER 1562

La désobéissance civile est le refus assumé et public de se soumettre à une loi, un règlement, une service provider ou un pouvoir jugé inique par ceux qui le contestent, tout en faisant de ce refus une arme de strive against pacifique.

Le terme fut créé par Henry David THOREAU, le philosophe anti-esclavagiste américain du XIXème, dans son essai La Désobéissance civile (On the obligation of Civil Disobedience), publié en 1849, à l. a. suite de son refus de payer une taxe destinée à financer l. a. guerre contre le Mexique. Si los angeles désobéissance civile est une forme de résistance, elle se distingue pourtant de los angeles révolte au sens classique, qui oppose l. a. violence à los angeles violence. los angeles désobéissance civile, plus subtile, refuse d'être complice d'un pouvoir illégitime et de nourrir ce pouvoir par sa propre coopération.

Le principe est utilisé aujourd'hui au sein des démocraties pour lutter contre certaines lois lorsque les militants estiment que l. a. légalité ne parviendra pas à modifier ces lois.

Ce plaidoyer contre l. a. puissance aveugle du gouvernement et critique acerbe des mécanismes d’asservissement des appareils de l’État, formule un modèle de révolte inédit qui, de Martin Luther King aux États-Unis à Gandhi en Inde, ou Mandela en Afrique du Sud changera profondément l’histoire politique et sociale du XIXe et du XXe siècle.

******

Mais, l'idée de los angeles résistance à une loi injuste est née bien avant le XIXe siècle. La Boétie, dès le XVIe siècle, a démontré l'efficacité du procédé dans son Discours de los angeles Servitude volontaire, devenant l’un des premiers auteurs à dire que les sujets ne sont pas contraints à une obéissance passive et aveugle : ils ont le droit et le devoir de juger le prince et de lui refuser leur soutien s’il a manqué à sa cost. Remettant en reason los angeles légitimité des puissants, il porte un regard neuf sur los angeles relation dominant/dominé et soutient une thèse originale : un peuple peut résister sans violence par los angeles désobéissance et provoquer l'effondrement d'un État illégitime, motor vehicle, dit-il, le pouvoir le plus féroce tire toute sa puissance de son peuple.

Mais le Discours n’est pas un appel à l. a. révolte, mais un appel à l. a. raison.

Texte bref, parfaitement construit, scintillant, paradoxal, le Discours de l. a. servitude volontaire est un mode d’emploi pour ne pas être dupe du pouvoir. C’est en comprenant ses mécanismes, non en luttant contre l. a. tyrannie qu’on parvient à l’abattre. Voici los angeles parole de celui qui n’a que sixteen ans quand il rédige ce texte plein de sagesse.

Le peuple seul fait lui-même sa servitude ou sa liberté parce qu’il fait ou défait le tyran. Le défaire, ce n’est pas le tuer, c’est tout simplement refuser de le servir. "Soyez résolus de ne le servir plus et vous voilà libres."

L’œuvre, rebaptisée Le Contr’un en 1574 par les protestants persécutés, devint un outil de contestation politique contre le roi de France catholique, puis fut considérée ensuite comme un pamphlet contre l. a. monarchie. Elle sera réimprimée sous l. a. Révolution (et plagiée par Marat dans Les chaînes de l’esclavage, puis contre Napoléon III.

C’est au XIXe siècle que le texte sera reconnu comme une œuvre majeure, une des premières à avoir théorisé ce que l’abolitionniste américain Henry David THOREAU avait appelé los angeles désobéissance civile.

Unique et inclassable, los angeles pensée de l. a. Boétie deviendra une référence littéraire pour ceux qui luttent contre un pouvoir politique injuste.
