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

Revolution…..is coming to your town too in soon ! Wednesday, May 25 2011 

After some discovered that citizen in distant country’s might demand real democracy’s,
After some discovered that many people around the world wants real changes,

They might discover that even the old empires have many inhabitants who have enough of the hypocrite “profit for few, absurdity for all” game,
and go on the street, on the places, in the parks inventing together another more human society.

Is a certain illusion of safety worth the neglect of essential human rights? Monday, May 9 2011 

Considering that the surveillance society who has been legitimated through the “war against terrorism” has succeed to put each citizen under suspicion, allowing the control of our privacy for this higher goal, I ask myself what has created the most damage on our democracy’s ?

The old adage seems still pertinent making us ask who profits from a certain atmosphere of fear.

Journalism or lazy propaganda colportage? Tuesday, May 3 2011 

In the past a journalist knew that he had to double check information before communicating it in his media to the public. This days of the too fast news, where sensationalism often replaces reflection, I allow myself a few subjective thoughts about affirmations I hear, which make me think more of brainwashed collective  hysteria than information about  facts.

In the moment it gets evident that some myth about the Arab world is falling apart through the engagement of citizen for democracy in those countries, and that innocent people might have been retained over years  for absurd reasons on a ground they could not obtain a fair trial , suddenly the main figure legitimating the increased control of all citizen worldwide and decline of democratic rights for ‘safety’ reasons, has been killed.

From whom do we know this? From the same bureaucracy who affirmed her importance after the cold war through the war against terrorism? From a system who affirmed the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq ?

Politicians watch a battle . Do I truly hear : ” Operation Geronimo” ?. I can not believe such a missing of cultural subtlety.

I hear, a person has been killed and is supposed to be the terrorist Osama bin Laden and as his body is now in the sea , we are supposed to believe those institution’s, we have learned to ‘trust’ over the years for their efficient way of handling the truth.

Adding to that a speech, I could not listen up the end, as it sounded to me like populist sugar for the tea of a certain party, …I can not say if a word was said about the local victims of the wars, and I doubt that the inclusive ‘we’ , was  welcomed by those who fight against a politic and economy serving the oil and armament profits.

I see agitated people on the street confusing hateful projection with foreign politic who remind me other dogmatic ones.

Some  never understood that European who had many city’s destroyed  are less inclined to use war in conflict situation . Many of us, in Europe have difficulties to understand a certain vision based on an illusion of the own potential to dominate to the world.

We get told that our safety is again in danger,….again!. Means more restrictions and an ambiance of fear serving probably not only our security.

I have the feeling, that the options for decent  information is  in danger too.

About the difference between etiquette and respect Sunday, May 1 2011 

I see that many use the therm of etiquette, confusing it with ethic,  as if it was the appropriate word for co mutual human respect. Mostly the same who assume that being nice is the only appropriate attitude in communication. Wonders what kind of intellectual debates are possible on such a confluent soil.

Etiquette means label in French, and the therm got used as concept how to behave appropriate towards an elite . It fits a certain superficial  narcissistic era to choose such hierarchical mannerism as base of human relationship.

Even in  a society where many limits their vocabulary to describe the other with such words like awesome or troll, a bit of culture might inform them that their overused word nice, comes from the Latin word nescius/ignorant.

Dividing into positive/negative concepts by repeating simplistic phrases is not creating a respectful situation for human communication, but neglect that those new dogmas can be used as new forms of territory bullying  by many who consider the challenge of their reality concept already as an offence.

Can we not question ourself about the true philosophical ethical value of what we assume as the right way?  Real respect towards our co human is natural to free human. To limit the minds to obedience of arbitrary convenient rules  is an insult to intelligence, creativity , engagement and compassion. It is a form of reductionist violence. It mistrust philosophically the human capacity to care for other human and their needs thoughtfully and the ability to solve problems  out of the own motivation for cooperation even in divergence, without rules imposed by authority structures, who s interests in  self determination can be questioned .

Historically we can associate this artificial well behaving obsession to each nouveau rich/petit bourgeois middle class attempt to flatter upwards and kick out critical voices challenging their uncultivated short sighted success concepts. The absurd ridicule of such attitudes is evident and has inspired many fine spirits over the century’s, their non respect of brain blocking  concepts is the base of our culture overcoming bigotry and despotism.

Not everybody welcomes a word based on calming pills , diluted thoughts and scissors in the head neglecting the real dehumanising and destruction out of sight for the comfort of flat mainstream agreement.

As we could observe in the last, democratic processes are about sharing openly ideas and arguments, not about controlling them down to please regimes in need of resigned citizen fearful of free speech.

A vivid democracy and culture requires engagement, not an absolutist  posturing confusing  affectations with ethical values.

A society who wrap’s herself in the privileged avoidance of conflicts, during the human rights gets neglect to provide such a lifestyle , is hypocritical . The shallow resonance of such therms like etiquette or political correctness points towards the cynical missing of real ethical structures organising life. Do we hear about an etiquette of those instrumenting the internet for business  profit or citizen control? Do we see political correctness increasing ecological awareness or social justice?

This disease confusing the packaging with the substance, is rampant and has created already a quiet generalised disastrous over adjusted  mentality.  During this… real rough life exists on earth !

In memory of Juliano Mer-Khamis Wednesday, Apr 13 2011 

At the start of spring, Juliano has been killed. He tried with courage to oppose art to the absurdity of a conflict in a region who would need peace and social justice to cure the wounds created by limited minds.

They think, they killed his spirit. How wrong can they be. Love can not be stopped on his way overcoming violence. It is the more deeper process and will succeed naturally, after all.

Do not blame that reality insight on the full moon Friday, Mar 18 2011 

How much hero myth revival will save the image of the nuclear industry?

The spit into the wind of shareholders might help prevent a fall out ?

If we only believe in it, deeply and with humble obedience to authority’s?

Are this the same water cannons once used against anti nuclear protesters warning about  exactly what happens now?

 

 

 

 

 

Learn to listen to Cassandra before they call catastrophes unexpected Monday, Mar 14 2011 

Natural catastrophes are overwhelming situations, humanity has learned to handle with common solidarity over the century.

Human made catastrophes are mostly the results of a long neglect of problems and something we could consider as a partial society amnesia of reality and a hybris projection of the own capacity’s to handle the future.

The problems occurring are than deeper as they have to overcome a generalised desensitisation who had exclude critical voices  out of consciousness. Suddenly the expectation for scientific wonder appears like very irrational wishes for pious miracles who will not come.

Instead of considering nature as our worse enemy and by that also doubting the wisdom of our own nature , let s question ourself if we allow to be impressed by pseudo serious posturing imposing us a highly artificial lifestyle for the sake of some divisive economy and if this is truly a cultivated healthy form of society with life quality hope for future generations.

Dont wait for the next nuclear incidence to change the goals of your society! Sunday, Mar 13 2011 

How often have many of us warned about the use of nuclear power and the increased danger of nuclear energy systems in an earthquake situation ?

After the recent history of Japan, one could have hoped for more thoughtfulness towards that topic. After other situations showing how humans cant control all aspects of this  technology, a stopping of it would have appeared evident.

Too much obedience towards an economical profit orientated society can be considered as dangerous too. Will now, after this terrible disaster come a new thoughtful culture setting other values and goals?

I hear the news and the disinformation . I see how some expected a lost of memory in this generation to build more nuclear reactors worldwide and go on using the old dangerous units. I compare the brochures with the reality. I have enough that our society’s remains under the impact of the careless profit of few. It is our responsibility, what kind of society future we create together. How many more warnings and victims do you need to engage yourself against it, wherever you are?

All year reflections at the international women s day Tuesday, Mar 8 2011 

As long the body and mind of women is repressed, pretending to stabilise any society, we can hardly speak of culture but of power structures damaging both gender, as the repression of one gender impacts the other, forcing him too into a limiting role model, reducing his own free expression.
The wish to dominate is not natural, but an expression of a deep fear.
If some men are so easily aroused by the view of an unveiled women,
let them wear oversized pants, eye covering veils and stay in houses to protect their dignity. Men who can not stand the view of a women in public, should stay at home.

As long the genital mutilation of millions is less a concern than oil in the debate between the nations, we know what matters more worldwide, human integrity or speculative resources.

As long the female aspect gets repressed in many way, our chances to survive as specie will be reduced by the old destructive macho posturing games.

Nature is the playful expression of both aspects, and to preserve life on this planet we need to support each other, instead of supporting artificial divisions between men and women. Intelligent human care for each other .
