In the evening
philosophy Sorel regarded itself as a Marxist, criticized however the left politicians as soft-light cheats, a whose goal was it only, “in a large bed to sleep”.
It developed the theory of the “myth” of the general strike and referred thereby to the revolutionary syndicalism. It is however misleading to reduce latter to the positions Sorels. As from Sorels work follows “over the force “, it regarded the society theory of Karl Marx as in principle correct. Since however the Bourgeoisie in contracts partly agreed with the Proletariat, it cannot come to the marxisitischen revolution. Therefore a general strike is necessary, so that the confidence of the Bourgeoisie is shaken into the loyalty to a contract of the Proletariats and the Bourgeoisie for their part the contracts any longer to hold. Thus the basis of the Marxist revolution was repaired.
The theories of Sorel affected in particular the Futurismus and found partly also entrance into thinking Benito Mussolini.
