After the war, Sartre doesn’t say a word about this exhortation to mobilization, perhaps because he himself had not yet discovered engagement in the 1930s. Perhaps also because he felt no sympathy for the leftism of the movement led by Bataille, which denounced with one and the same gesture bourgeois moralism, electoral compromise and the power struggles of a Soviet Communist Party capable of making alliances with Western democracies on the pretext of the struggle against Fascism. Perhaps, finally, because he is deaf to the motives which lead Bataille to pursue, in L’expérience intérieure, an asceticism whose stakes can be described in the same vocabulary used before the war to talk about revolutionary mobilization.
He wants ‘being without delay’, and if he abandons himself to action it is like others giving into alcohol or to lust. JEAN-MICHEL BESNIER 19 He wants ‘to be there with no other aim than to exist’, and it is this which seems most subversive—that which Bataille will soon describe as sovereignty. In any case, poles apart from what Sartre’s message is in 1947, he is indifferent to any ethics of salvation and as a consequence to political ideologies, those ‘secular religions’ which all promise a final reconciliation.
The streets were empty; the campesinos were already dispersed in the mountains. Most of them must have sold nothing, they are bearing their now still heavier burdens back, to be packed up and carried again the next market day. The streets are ankle-deep in discarded husks and leavewrappings, dog and human excrement. Down every lane I am startled by the rustling of vaguely visible transparent forms. I tell myself it is the wind whipping a snag of plastic bags, though each time I seem to catch sight of a half-decomposed cadaver fleeing through the night in a luminous shroud.
