Étienne de La Boétie – Discours de la servitude volontaire

“C’est un livre qui date du 16eme siècle. Ça parle de la relation maitre-esclave dans la société. Il reprend des exemples de tyrans et parle des mécanismes qui font qu’un tyran puisse gouverner. Ça évoque la peur de la liberté que ressentent les peuples et la difficulté de sortir de leur situation. C’est une très bonne analyse mais ça n’apporte pas forcément des réponses.”
