Comment pouvaisje supposer que le président de notre pays ne dirait rien, et ne ferait rien, après avoir été espionné par les États-Unis ainsi que plusieurs millions de Français et que toutes nos ambassades dans le monde ? Comment pouvais-je deviner qu’il chanterait devant une caméra « Laisse-moi t’aimer » à 64 M. Netanyahou, chef d’un gouvernement de coalition avec l’extrême droite en Israël ? Comment prévoir qu’il prendrait fait et cause pour ce gouvernement à l’heure des crimes de guerre contre la population de Gaza ?
Il faut donc repérer les points d’appui pour rebondir le moment venu ! Les occasions viendront de porter plus loin que jamais notre projet dans l’histoire. La question posée n’est pas de savoir si nous allons y arriver, et encore moins d’espérer être félicités pour avoir eu raison avant tout le monde. Jusqu’à la victoire, il n’y a que des coups à prendre. Nous devons seulement examiner si nous avons des raisons d’agir et 31 des moyens d’avancer. Place au peuple Dans les tensions terribles que contient notre époque se niche la possibilité d’un rebond positif vers un tout autre futur.

Le peuple va la mener et non une classe particulière dirigeant le reste de la population. Le peuple, à savoir les nuées humaines urbanisées qui forment l’essentiel de la population contemporaine. Le peuple, c’està-dire cette multitude quand elle devient citoyenne. À savoir quand les individus qui la composent prennent le pouvoir 34 sur leurs conditions de vie.
