“The Man-Wolf” in a Political Manifesto of the Parti Québécois Calling for “A New Social Model”

The Man-Wolf in a Political Manifesto Calling for A New Social Model

A new segment of my exclusive English translation of the 1972 manifesto of the Parti Québécois for a Communist state of Quebec has been added to the Library tab. Pages 29 through 38 cover two chapters and contain some startling information for researchers into the “New World Order”.

In the chapter entitled “Toward a new social model”, the concept of “The Man-Wolf” in a political manifesto is odd enough. However, it might be a Marxist allegory, because I have seen it elsewhere, if only once in a socialist context. More odd, that metaphor is linked to a seemingly esoteric or religious idea of man as a “perfectible being”. The few paragraphs under this heading are enigmatic, and conclude with the following assertion:

Il faut extirper autant et aussi vite que possible, cette fausse idée de la liberté individuelle, qui n’aboutit en pratique qu’à la liberté du renard dans le poulailler, du fort aux dépens du faible, du gros aux dépens du petit, et qu’on reconnaît dans la plupart des refrains qui chantent les attraits les plus douteux du statu quo.”

“It is necessary to extirpate as much and as rapidly as possible, this false idea of individual liberty, which in practice is tantamount to the liberty of the fox in the hen-house, of the strong at the expense of the weak, of the large at the expense of the small, and which one recognizes in the majority of refrains which extol the most dubious attractions of the status quo.”

As we might fully expect from various stripes of Communists, personal liberty is on its way out; yet the manifesto equates the “new social model” with freedom and “fertile self-determination”.

The rather chilling spectre hovering perceptibly across these paragraphs is the implication of some kind of State-imposed and State-enforced individual and group (“community”) “evolution” in the Darwinian sense, which in my mind seems to invoke the 1946 Unesco: its purpose and its philosophy, penned by Julian Huxley, brother of Aldous (the LSD researcher and author of Brave New World, 1931), calling for some kind of worldwide controlled human “evolution” to a higher stage.

My impression of this potential link of the 1972 manifesto to the UN is underscored by the fact that the tactic of setting up the Parti Québécois emerges from the same nexus of people around Cité Libre review in the 1950s, described by Quebec historian Robert Rumilly. That group were closely affiliated with the Esprit group in France around Emmanuel Mounier and Jacques Maritaine, whose names appear in a search of the UNESCO web site. I may write more about this another day.

Also of interest are the various references to redesigned municipalities, and concerns with regions or regionalism. These might be expected in a Communist context where nations are gradually eroded toward a “world state” in which nothing would remain but cities and regions.

Read my new English segment of the 1972 Parti Québécois manifesto for a Communist State of Quebec,(Quand nous serons vraiment chez nous). These are pages 29-38, including the chapters entitled “Political organization” and “Toward a new social model.

If you read French, I’ve scanned the original 1972 manifesto and put it online here:
