This chapter reviews “The Meaning of European Social Development,” a kind of philosophical testament recorded in 1971 and 1972. It discusses the notion of the common development of mankind, its possibilities, and its meaningful and favorable aims. It considers the question of the French Revolution and revolutionary violence; the social role and possible use of violence in general; and the European system of freedoms. It describes digression on the revolt against declassing, on being both a liberal and a socialist, on a non-forbidding socialist appropriation, on class war to the death, on the tyranny of the intelligentsia, on mass political hysterias, on democracy ancient and modern, on “The William”, on workers' self-government, and on the legal concept of property and toward a critique of Marxism.

Keywords:   European Social Development, French Revolution, revolutionary violence, European system of freedoms, declassing, liberal, socialist, mass political hysterias, The William, Marxism
