By Jacques Ellul
Jacques Ellul-much much less solemn in temper than usual-here cracks open political and sociological commonplaces, destructively and wittily demonstrating how our unthinking attractiveness of them encourages hypocrisy, smugness, and psychological inertia. one of the stereotypes of concept and speech hence exploded are such words as "You cannot act with out getting your arms soiled" "Work is freedom" "We needs to stick to the present of historical past" and "Women locate their freedom (dignity) in paintings" a undeniable variety of those previous saws preside over our lifestyle. they allow us to appreciate each other and to swim within the traditional present of society. they're approved as so definite that we virtually by no means query them. They serve instantly as adequate reasons for every thing and as "clinchers" in too many arguments. Ellul explores the ways that such clichés lie to us and stop us from having self sustaining thoughts-and actually maintain us from dealing with the issues to which they're theoretically addressed. they're the "new commonplaces" simply because the 19th century introduced forth many such commonplaces (they are enshrined in Leon Bloy's Exégése and Flaubert's Dictionnaire des idées reçues), so our century has been busy developing its personal. What Ellul has performed is to face nonetheless lengthy adequate to examine them rigorously, assault them with cool cause, and go away them nakedly uncovered. during this amazing record, Ellul's caustic fearlessness is on the carrier of truths that frequently are merciless, yet regularly are lucid and impassioned. He represents the voice of intelligence, and whereas doing so is usually hilarious and continually healing approximately concerns of first significance.
