Storyboard Text

  • I am to speak about man, and the question I am examining informs me that I am going to be speaking to men
  • So what precisely is the issue here in this Discourse? 
  • It is to mark in the progress of things the moment ... to explain by what sequence of astonishing events the strong could resolve to serve the weak and the people to purchase imaginary repose at the expense of genuine happiness.
  • Leave civilized man the time to collect all his machines around him, and there is no doubt he would easily overcome savage man.
  • If he had had an axe, would his wrist have broken off such strong branches? If he had had a sling, would his hand have thrown a stone so hard?
  • Lacking valid reasons to justify himself and sufficient strength to defend himself, easily crushing an individual, but himself crushed by gangs of bandits, alone against everyone.
  • Do you not know that a multitude of your brothers is dying or suffering from a need for what you have in excess?
  • It is thus incontestable and the fundamental maxim of all political right that the people gave themselves leaders to defend their liberty and not to enslave them.
  • why did they give themselves superiors, unless it was to defend them against oppression and to protect their goods, their liberties, and their lives, which are, so to speak, the constituent elements of their being?
  • Such is, in fact, the real cause of all these differences: the savage lives in himself; social man, always outside himself, cannot live except in the opinions of others, and it is, so to speak, only from their judgment that he derives the feeling of his own existence.
