Existentialist writer. Autographed manuscript, S.l.n.d. 1 pp. in-4 on graphpaper, blue ink, one erasure with correction. Political reflections on the conditions of a seizure of power by the proletariat. We can see the contradiction of the revolutionary crowd: its demands will only be fulfilled if it takes over the power. (…) Thus, the mobs do not have any chance to seize the authority alone: they need allies, a precise strategy and political background to succeed, which they do not have. (…) Still, the consequences could suddenly be in its favor: but its victory would cause such a disruption between the international forces that it might provoke a direct intervention or indirectly foreign. We have to appreciate the opportunities of this revolution.
