Il testamento politico di A. Camus 22 gennaio 1958 (Ing. & Fr.)

Speech to the Spanish refugees fleeing Francoism. Political testament of Albert Camus pronounced January 22, 1958.

Extract: And if sometimes I find it hard to work in this intellectual society where we live in, 

where one makes a point of honor of disloyalty

where reflex replaced reflection

where thinking is throwing slogans around

and where evilness tries too often to pass itself as intelligence.

Then what else can be bone than rely on one’s own star? (…)

I live as I can in an unhappy world

rich in its people and its youth

temporarily poor in its elites

a world set out in search for an order, a renaissance. (…)
