For what purposes were national workshops created? Explain what theories the minister spoke about. Why were the national workshops intended to prove the “emptiness and absurdity” of these theories?
We are talking about the socialist theory of Louis Blanc, the basis of which was the idea of ”public workshops” – production cooperatives with elected leadership and equal pay. National workshops, but their plan and tasks, had nothing to do with the “social workshops” for which Blanc stood up, and therefore were recognized to prove the “emptiness and absurdity” of socialist theories. Moreover, national workshops were established with the aim of undermining Blanc’s authority, i.e. .to. the decision to organize them was made by the interim government under pressure from Blanc, and to prove the impracticability of socialist dreams.
