Ressentiment* and the new world governance: a general analysis
¤ Margaux Vulliod ¤ 11 July 2011
Ressentiment can be traced back through history, metamorphosing to reflect changes in the way humans organize society and affecting everything from conflicts to power structures.

We will therefore use the light shed by history to examine contexts favourable to the development of ressentiment and the notion of subjectivity that characterizes human interpretations. Historical facts lose all (...) read more

World Governance of Ressentiment*
¤ Arnaud Blin ¤ 10 March 2009
History offers us an infinite array of examples of major and minor conflicts born of ressentiment. Revolutions, the key periods marking a break from the past and generating major cycles of history, are often the result of a sudden explosion of old ressentiments. Following the great revolutions of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and the eruption of major ideologies and virulent nationalist movements which have all, in some way, exploited legitimate ressentiments, the 21st century offers us (...) read more
