About famine, speculation, charity, cynism and humanity. Wednesday, Jul 27 2011 

Anything to say,

maybe about the connection between speculation and climate change?

maybe about the connection between speculation and perpetuation of wars?

maybe about the connection between speculation on resources and starvation?

maybe about the role of charity organisations in a system of greed?

maybe about media , sensationalism and information quality of news?

maybe about the possible profit expected through “improving” zones  who have been destroyed before?

No?

Thought so!

This world needs social justice, not tax deductible charity!

A ceux qui pretendent aider la culture par des subventions, oubliant que certains artistes ont de la memoire, tiens donc! Wednesday, Jul 27 2011 

L argent citoyen sans conditions serrai  la liberation de la creativite de tous. Mais tant que la culture est vue comme support flatteur d un systeme  capitaliste “modere” ou l artiste doit etre “performant” et bien adapte a plaire au gout tres sur des speculateurs ou a une classe moyenne qui “consomme” de l art pour parfaire son image , l appartchik complaisant a bien plus de chance de survie, meme tres  n importe quoi, que celui qui a une veritable qualitee artistique , mais ne joue pas le jeu. La complaisance peut meme etre un peu d esprit critique, mais pas trop, just assez pour faire semblant de changer quelque chose, sans rien deranger au systemes des subventions entre bons amis qui se connaissent et s apprecient. Sans parler des grands besoins financiers de la bureaucratie qui pretend administrer l art et sait se creer de nouvelles importances en laissant des miettes aux artistes, faisant d eux des subalternes sociaux de son bon vouloir.

La creativite est naturelle en tout humain et la culture est plus qu un instrument de faire valoir d arrivites au pouvoir.

Why I am not suprised, that some are surprised about right-wing terror. Monday, Jul 25 2011 

My first intuition, as I heard from this horrible violence inflicted on the Norwegian society was : … a right-winger!. I did not exclude rationaly other options, especially as the insitence to point at islamists was obviously the first reaction of other, but later I was, like often, confirmed to have been right.

My thoughts go first, before I follow my analyse, to the victims, their families and friends who have to face their hurt . I remember holding the hand of someone who had expirienced such a violent intrusion in his life, and was reacting with fear, each time he heard a firework or other sound reminding him his traumatic expirience. I understand how hard it must be for them now, and probably for a long time. May they at least know, that many are feeling with them, and wish that they might find back to a trust into life, this person without empathy has tried to destroy.

The media goes on repeating flat statements about the scandinavian social peacefull coherence, neglecting the increasing destructuration of this concept through a disdainfull nouveaux riches egotism, the confusion assuming that more bureaucracy creates egalitarism, that social control neglecting individuality and social solidarity are the same, and the contradiction of love for nature and resource exploitation for a privileged way of life. Even the classical parties or the media are more and more inclined to use reactionary concepts imposing more rigourosity to hide the disatrous effects of a deregulated market . What is left, is often only the old shine of social concern, which mostly is a puritan vision of a non controvertial/confronterial community.This tendency can be observed in many countries.

The great blindness towards the potential of violence of the extreme right wing is not innocent, it is systematic for those in society who consider it as ethically acceptable to repeat the propaganda phrases of those groups for their own political or social careerism and those who join dehumanised visions dividing humans, out of their own pride issues.

How much is it a cliche to consider psychopathic violence as an unforseeable outburst?
How many look-away situations are included in this concept of destinity?

As long acting cool and careless, dividing society into winner and losers is
too often still considered as virile determinism serving a greed who legitimates herself as worthiness deserving privileges, even if it leads to destruction of democracys, neglect of human needs, social structures and environment for a bit of individual prestige build on vanity….as long this pretend normality is not seen as doing the evil it does, …it will remain difficult to recognise those who overfulfil this attitude sociopathically .

Let s have the courage, to oppose real emotions to violent behaviour.
Cynicism expects to be seen as witty, but our hearts knows that empathy, compassion and solidarity is our real intelligence.

Ces jours-ci , ces gens la, au Yemen, en Syrie et ailleur, et partout. Friday, Jul 22 2011 

Amie,
Si fiere je fus de te connaitre,
moi, qui te pensais dans un monde,
ou l ancestral m aurait prive de ta voix.
La surprise m eduqua a voir l aurore pointer a ton horizon.

Ami,
Le miroir de nacre,
le savon a l huile des oliviers ,
me rapelle ta presence lointaine,
les herbes des collines,
ne connaissant pas les frontieres,
ouvertes aujourd hui aux refugies,
fuyants un regime vil.
Parmis les mots francais qui restent sous ton soleil antique,
celui de liberte a pris de l ampleur?

Mes amis,
je suis restee muette,
en pensant a vous,
le coeur emplit de tristesse face au violence inutiles,
et d espoirs radieux inspires de vos beaux courages desesperes

le jour, la nuit, le son distant des moissoneuses en debut d ete. Friday, Jul 22 2011 

(Ecrit fin juin sur mon cahier!.)
Ils recoltes si tot,
que vont-ils faire
des champs nus,
jusqu a l automne?

Les hatifs avides de future,
ont transforme le climat,
jusqu a ce que les saisons,
manque de temps.

Calme apres-midi de canicule d un ete, d un ciel, d un jardin. Friday, Jul 22 2011 

L evaporation d eau a la lavande,
sur les rideaux apporte la fraicheur bienvenue,

Le bol de fruits rouges du jardin,
cerises, framboises, fraises,
pres de l oreiller a portee des doigts,

tu reinvente des fleurs
avec des petales de pensees,
sur mes joues endormies.

L esprit de la prise de la Bastille n est pas un privilege de m as-tu-vu de tribune! Monday, Jul 18 2011 

En memoire a ma mere resitante qui a defendu Paris, l arme a la main, mais quitta apres guerre l armee et renonca a touts honneurs et toutes medailles, pour  joindre les beaux-arts signes d espoir et de futur humain.

Au lieu de joindre les badauds admirant les gars de la legion etrangere assumee comme tres francaise,
je prefere me joindre a une promenade, libre, allegre et civique en rappelant a certains que la veritable gloire de la France est d etre terre d acceuille de beaux esprits et non d etre reduite a l image de belliqueuse par trop martiale servant les interets d un prestige vaniteux .
