I argue in this paper that Emil Cioran proposed a severe criticism of the Romanian people starting from the idea of historical destiny. In the end, this criticism has been turned into a prophecy. I formulate the hypothesis that Cioran expressed three successive attitudes towards the idea of destiny: rebellion, resignation, alienation.
