#WORLD #WORLDWIDE #FRANCE #HAITI #ANARCHISM #News #Journal #Update - (en) France, UCL AL #318 - File Haitian Revolution: An intellectual portrait of the "black Spartacus" (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

 Toussaint Louverture, a complex and reserved personality, wanted to control his

image to make it stick to the role he felt he had to play in the face of history.
His fundamentally revolutionary conceptions were marked by a marked conservatism.
Where did they come from? ---- Humanity: The experience of slavery is inseparable
from the formation of Toussaint, who was born in irons, of an Allada couple
deported to Santo Domingo. He saw the humiliations, the mutilations and the
death. When he himself was a coachman on the Breda house, then owner, he sought
to limit the suffering of the slaves. And after a few months of insurrection, in
1792, he set himself the goal of abolition.
Enlightenment: The golden legend has it that Toussaint was a reader of Abbé
Raynal, and in particular passages from his Philosophical History of the Two
Indies threatening the colonists with the vengeance of a "black Spartacus" . It
seems that it is about a construction a posteriori , his French allies thus
making enter Toussaint in their republican grid of reading... The latter was
careful not to contradict them, delighted by this gratifying image.

Catholicism: It is rather in Christian doctrine that he drew his refutation of
the racial hierarchy. He would have learned to read from the Jesuits, whom he
assisted in their offices. The Jesuits believed in their educational mission with
the Blacks, which annoyed the colonists, and caused their expulsion from
Saint-Domingue in 1763. Toussaint then linked up with their successors, the
Capuchins, and worked for them in two hospitals in Cape Town. A register of the
Bréda dwelling, in 1785, described it thus: "gentle", "bigot" and "likes to
catechize" [1].

Republic: In 1792, without renouncing his religious conceptions, and while still
claiming to be the king, he assimilated at high speed the conceptions and the
vocabulary of the French Revolution: freedom, equality of rights, homeland,
virtue, public good ... After his rallying to the republic in May 1794, he
mastered perfectly the game of new institutions, where he even had, in Paris, his
own relays.

Science: Mocked in his youth for his puny constitution (he was nicknamed
"Fatras-Bâton"), Toussaint compensated by his intellect and his valor which would
have led him, on two occasions, to stand up to the Whites. Educated in medicinal
plants (he was a "leaf doctor"), his first title in the armed bands of Biassou
was that of "doctor".

Family: Very concerned about his extended family, Toussaint saw the family
institution as a model for society, of which he had a paternalistic vision: the
owner had to be "the father" of the plantation; the governor "the father" of the
colony ...

Discipline: On the Bréda plantation, in the 1780s, Toussaint was the right hand
of the manager, Bayon de Libertat. Together, they treated the slaves better,
which reduced marooning and improved productivity. Hence, no doubt, Toussaint's
faith in class collaboration, which runs through his "culture regulations" of

Makandalism: Partisan of a multiracial society, Toussaint never adhered to the
plan to eradicate white people. He was undoubtedly more seduced by the
revolutionary messianism conveyed by the legend of Makandal - with which his
supporters were able to identify him -, but also by his practice of concealment,
specific to secret societies.
