Total war is no longer only between all members of one national community and all those of another: it is also total because it will very likely set the whole world up in flames.
One is still what one is going to cease to be and already what one is going to become. One lives one’s death, one dies one’s life.
Man is not the sum of what he has, but the totality of what he does not yet have, of what he might have.
Happiness has to be installed in each person as a state of affairs completely cut off from the process that brought it about and, in particular, from the real situation. Man has to be affected with happiness. It is a tonality given to him. Contradiction: if one does take care to give him happiness, it is because he is a free creature but in order to give it to him, one turns him into an object.
