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.

About the return of the bourgeoise idea of educating servants Saturday, May 7 2011 

A certain charitable middle class has invented an almost real job solution for the poor, they insist to repeat like one stupid catchphrase more, of the same social worth as many of these brainwashing mantras spread from the media who pretends to solve solution by neglecting the own participation in a disastrous situation and ignoring the most aspects of a supposed problem who remains mostly an avoiding  side issue ignoring the society evidence in the middle of the room.

Their newest brilliant idea, is to …again…re-educate unemployed citizen, by providing them with work for the benefit of society. Means, Gardening for city’s, caring for older, being employed by enterprises who get subventions.

Instead of changing society through real participative democracy and citizen money for all without conditions, what would truly allow real caring and creativity to unfold trusting the human potential truly, the old punitive patronising reflex points up his abusive finger pointing pride, pretending that it will bring back work who has been since long delocalised by a profit driven speculation.

Work deserves an honest salary and not welfare sponsoring of favours done to another group of society expecting privileges and in need of an underpaid class of workers forces to please such a system to obtain the essential for a living.

Instead of repeating these new social insanity’s dividing our democracy, flattering the self worth of a failing middle class with an extreme rigidity towards real changes and still attracted by a disastrous role model of some even more thoughtless abusive wealthy, it is truly time to think about new cooperative inclusive forms of caring for our future.

Our social reality can not be cured by humiliating concepts, but by real engagement . Painting little flowers over capitalist exploitation is simply participation to the evil through superficial absurdity.

The whole system needs to be rethink by all for all.

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.

In support of the values of the french lay society in the debate about the integral veil in public Wednesday, Apr 13 2011 

Even if the new debate about the integral veil has been clearly a populism of the right wing government to distract from his social inefficacy,  I am not going to make the mistake to assume that it is a progressive combat to fight for the pretend freedom to hide away the female face .

Considering the provocative use of this kind of clothes by a very small minority of  Muslim political fundamentalist in need of attention (the opposite of what the veil is supposed to prevent in public), I welcome this law reaffirming the respect of France as a lay society.

I myself find it very offensive and trespassing my sense for privacy to be forced to an over intimacy into the space of the eyes of another person as only communication  indication  . What kind of concept about men does such a costume affirm ?

I have the feeling that reactionary doctrines are well shared by people of all boards flattering their own pride, who think that everything opposes them. Same kind of limited view on reality.

Ensemble, together…changeons ce monde ! Monday, Mar 28 2011 

May I introduce you, in case you missed it, to a fabulous man who has written a very short book, a best-seller since months in France, and who in between has been published in other languages:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indignez-vous_!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_for_Outrage!

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hessel

It is a wonderful statement about the worth of engagement as essential part of life, written by an inspiring old wise man who shares his experiences and values in a very heartful honest way.

This book makes it even more clear to me, how the roots of my actual battles are related to the engagement of my parents for a more human world.

Dear friends , I thank each of you to make a difference through the way you live your lifes, towards more beauty and justice for all!

 

 

Do I hear, some people in England are waking up to social reality? Sunday, Mar 27 2011 

The usual selective pictures from demonstrations made by the usual biased media .

Are you sure that the usual window destroyer is not the usual agent procateur supposed to descredit like usual the peacefull demonstration?
To the cuts in the budget, I only wonder how long it takes the middle class to realise capitalism is social destructive. Supporting the worse systems  till it affects the own comfort, is a bit absurd. How many of these people don’t want real changes, they want participation to the elite system. Sorry, but that is a too limited understanding of the problem. How many have not realised that the middle class is as disposable now as the working class? Are they in danger to loose their go between function ? I just wonder to have not seen many of them before in an angry mood in the streets?  Did you not know that your Island of the prosper winners till eternity, belongs to the most extremely class divided country’s on earth? As if any of the past governments, had not support , despite some propaganda speeches before votes , exactly that division. Wake up, these are the same kind of guys/girls as the last bunch, playing the same careless game.

Even If I consider it as a wonder that the too quiet Island wakes up out of her entrepreneur determinate stupor , I hope this is only the start of a greater introspection.

Even if I get the impression, that the system will disappear under the immense weight of his own disconnected stupidity and the inability of those in power, to think further then their own importance.

…did I mention, profit pleasing lobby puppets from whatever party, are disposable too. Real democracy is possible.

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?

How big is an increasingly divided class society on a small island? Monday, Feb 21 2011 

This fat cat minority pleasing using the old fake unity noises of the nation in dispear, reminds me the use of the word we, when troubles are collectivised during the profits remain divided.

Politicians seems unable to notice how insulting to the intelligence of many, the  reality shallow repeated stupid mantras of stink tanks and speech writers are.

They might understand the real signification of their vacuous sound good noise, if the anger in society grows and great amount of citizen who have been patient far too long, appears at their door to demand real democratic changes.

More news about a non organised majority of protesters in Egypt, please! Sunday, Feb 6 2011 

I am quiet annoyed, when I get the impression that some news are focusing again on the well know groups or celebrity s, who are quiet similar than the repetitive clients of talk shows, pretending to analyse a far more complex situation.

It s the old searching for main figures or main  groups who gain importance through media presence. Journalism is not easy under certain conditions, but lazy journalism exists too, who is too easy satisfied with the usual cliché concepts.

Now, let s hear more from not organised citizen or democratic groups who don’t belong to the Muslim Brotherhood or are well know so called potential leaders  , even if it requires more efforts.

Let s not reduce the dynamic of a situation to an in two minute easy to recognise patterns, fitting in between two advertising sounds.

If we talk about a democratic aim of citizen, lets hear truly from all forces involved.
