The article deals with the issue of slavery celebrations in France to demonstrate how the celebration of the past French slave system is an example of the threat of a return of slavery phenomenon, although in new forms, in the present "cognitive capitalism" model. To the author's opinion, it is precisely from this new perspective of analysis that the issue of the struggle against slavery should be resumed. The celebration of the slavery phenomenon of the past should not be understood as a pious remembrance of sad events that should never be repeated, possibly to obtain compensation for passed damages, but to prevent that a new form of post-modern and hyper-industrial slavery may unconsciously be established today.
