Abstract : This text, written shortly after September 11, is a Breton sociological meditation in a context of global crisis ... It evokes the two historic political poles that shaped Brittany in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Each of them tried, in its own way, to free men. The "white" model tried to save them from sin, maintaining a dense rural community through the modernization of agriculture. The "red" model wanted to free the men by pulling them away from the traditions, thanks to the secular and republican school, which offered perspectives of social promotion to children. A third model, much less common, nevertheless existed, which aspired to build a Breton humanism, based on the combination of the liberation of the individual and the recognition of collective rights. It was a revolutionary model (which wanted everyone to start with his/her own internal revolution), pacifist and tolerant. It was defended by Emile Masson (1869-1923) and then by Yann Sohier (1901-1935).
