Entropy in the human hearth

Capital sins… They convert into cash the sin of the world in every individual or collective humanity. Traditionally you count seven ones. Pride. Envy. Anger. Avarice. Lust. Intemperance. Idleness. You think they are from another age, but their topicality is greater than ever. They trap our desire. They trap it in its root.

Before I wish this or that, there is already a fundamental desire in me. This desire 'before', this basic desire, is of a deep ambivalence between grace and sin,between opening and closing. A generous opening remaining from his original creation, but also a schizoid enclosure as a very concrete vestige of the sin of the world in our psychology. Such are the capital sins. They affect negatively our desire in its source. This desire has to get masked to make itself presentable. So it disguises itself and gets dressed with 'good manners'. But who is fooled by this play of hide-and-seek? 'Civilization' can undoubtedly make presentable. But can it 'save'?

The capital sins govern a totalitarian system of the 'same'. Pride is locked up in 'me'. Avarice, lust, intemperance, idleness insists on 'my' assets, on 'my' pleasure, on 'my' satisfaction, on 'my' well being. And, as for envy and anger: always 'I', 'me', 'mine' face to the other one, at the detriment of the other one, against the other one... The system of the capital sins thus locks up the desire in its autistic schizoid enclosure. But by doing this it makes it play against itself. As a snake biting its tail, captif of its own voracity.

The desire… A deeper reflection on the capital sins, and the envy in particular, could have avoided Karl Marx erecting its monumental illusion. But undoubtedly, then, one would not have taken him seriously. Marx wanted to release a dynamics able to fill radically the human desire. All the desire and the desire of all. This progressive optimism underestimated the limits, physics and morals, of the possibilities of the producing tool of euphoria. But he sinned still more seriously against the profound nature of the desire itself. This one is not a question of abstraction; it is about the real and concrete desire. And this desire is wounded. How, starting from the 'struggle of classes', get out of the vicious circle of envy against envy? How to reach a 'classless society' without converting the desire in its root? And how to free the desire from the alienation of its original sin in the materialist and atheist immanence? Man returned to himself? No, the desire simply returned to the capital sins.

In the marxist perspective,
wouldn't the 'fight' be purifying negativities? This recourse to the dominating Eros is certainly immediately 'mobilizing'. It calls upon this simple and easy spring which draws up the same one 'against' the other one. At the same time, it justifies ideologically the fight which can be only 'right' and canonizes its protagonists who can be only 'pure', face to an adversary become the absolute scapegoat. The whole allegedly sanctioned by the eternal judgement of history. But fundamentally, Marx and the middle-class, locating their interests in simple opposition, aren't they sharing the same Eros? And thus don't they function according to the same entropy?

The unslung desire... We wanted it without taboo. We wanted it without sin. We wanted it without proportion. Even the most savage heralds of the 'total' liberation become disenchanted. The nature of the things, if needed, is recalling it cruelly.

Once given free course to the capital sins, nothing seems to be able to stop their proliferation and the outburst of their conflictual situations. Envy against envy. Pride against pride. Injustice against injustice. Greed against greed. Pleasure against pleasure…

Eros has to want to fill a difference. But thus the distance between hot source and cold well is necessarily narrowing. The entropy grows. The difference without which the desire is nothing slips towards the indifference. Thus towards death. Such a destiny is fatal in immanence.

To overcome entropy, to make grow the no-entropy, one needs an inversion and a reversal of Eros. Who or what can operate this inversion? Such a conversion of Eros exists. It's called Agape
