E. M. CIORAN: A Life Without Sin.

Man must be made to face a new beginning of history. A new Adam without sin must mean a new man and a history without sin must contain his activities. Only thus can one think of a new life, a life changed at its roots. Humanity awaits only a prophet: the one of a life without sin. If death cannot be conquered or destroyed, sin must be conquered or destroyed. As this individual effort is illusory, a cataclysm of history and an anthropological revolution, in which the age-long inheritance will be blown up, will signify the dawn of another world. Man will then compete with all the gods of the conquered centuries, and every being will signal a new dawn. Many worlds will die. But many more will be born. And then we shall know the crossroads of human nature, and not only those of man.
