After the age of masks

PavementBlue, white, black. They are there, on the ground, lying in their small urban space having fallen on the sidewalk. Neglected out of a handbag, fallen from a pocket that was too full, dumped from a car stuck to the sidewalk. Masks of any fabric and of the same shape, pointed or flat, to be placed on a lower face that aspires to breathe the fresh air of cities and fields. The masks will fall soon and, last summer there, they will only be a bad memory. Bad memory framing French memory over nearly two years. Remember major and outraged controversies at the beginning, when they were lacking, when, having understood that fine stocks had burned with impunity, we realized that we would have to buy some, and not just a little: tens of millions, from China promoted emp...

Mélenchon like Trump

Jean-Luc Mélenchon was right on Monday to strongly condemn the video of a far-right polemicist, Papacito, featuring the assassination of a voter of rebellious France. The dissemination of such footage on a site as frequented as YouTube is intolerable. But that cannot make us forget the scandalous remarks made the day before by the deputy of Marseille. The arsonist will find it difficult to pass himself off as a firefighter.→ PORTRAIT. Who is Papacito, the far-right influencer who stages the assassination of a "leftist"?That he wants to denounce the recovery of various facts on the eve of presidential elections, we can understand. However, to induce the idea of ​​manipulation about the jihadist assassinations of Mohamed Merah in 2012 is simply odious. Let's remember. ...

Democratic fatigue

In the age of the smartphone, being indignant, reacting, supporting, it is done on a whim and with a flick of the thumb. Voting is another matter. More complex and more engaging. Two weeks before the next elections, many municipalities are struggling to recruit the assessors essential to the functioning of the polling stations. In places, three quarters are still missing! To ensure the smooth running of the polls on June 20 and 27, we need twice as many volunteers as usual, because there will be two ballot boxes, one for the departmental, the other for the regional.The mayors initially believed that this shortage was explained by the fear of the Covid. But the evil is deeper. Philippe Laurent, from the Association of Mayors of France, puts forward another hypothesis:...

Julien Bayou’s hair

Julien Bayou had his hair cut. This is information that I just read in the press. Julien Bayou is the head of the ecological list for regional in Île-de-France. And so he had his hair cut. It is supposed to establish its credibility. Granted, it's not just her hair (and its length) in this credibility operation. But that's part of it. Until now, his hair was tousled, combed in any way. Green, what. Finally, according to the image we often have of green people. The hair in firecracker, it's nice. But, on the credibility side, apparently, it doesn't. → READ. Regional regions in Île-de-France, a test for 2022I don't know if there was a special meeting of Julien Bayou's campaign team, in full force (specialists in image, opinion, etc.) to settle this thorny questio...

Euthanasia. Avoid evil-die

Many thanks to Marion Broucke for her excellent column on euthanasia, in the Science and Ethics supplement of May 25 (to be read below). It raises the real questions that all participants in this long-term debate should ask themselves: caregivers, lawyers, elected officials, philosophers, decision-makers. She underlines that the legal, legislative and therapeutic arsenal is currently sufficient and sufficiently well done to avoid bad death. On the other hand, caregivers and particularly certain doctors are still insufficiently trained and informed; there is a lot of progress to be made in this direction but, in ten years, thanks to the clarification of the Claeys-Leonetti law, this progress is real. I thank The cross which gives voice to an enlightened, impartial, exp...

Desire for proximity

The aspiration was already there, it grew stronger. The desire for proximity has been fully expressed for several months, heightened by the weeks of confinement. Isolated for several weeks, many French people became aware of their needs for contacts and exchanges, preferred supplies from the corner of the street to crowds in supermarkets, deplored the collapse of the made in France for the most vital products, vaccines, masks or drugs.→ CASE OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Should I consume made in France?The movement had already been germinating for a long time. The rise of short circuits, experiences of local democracy, a new form of engagement through micro-actions, the vitality of networks in neighborhoods or territories, a thirst for conviviality or calls to relocate production ...

Praise of the complaint

Gérald Darmanin, Minister of the Interior, decided to take the plains against Audrey Pulvar, head of the socialist list for the regional in Île-de-France, accusing her of having defamed the police by his remarks against the police demonstration. Also dry, Audrey Pulvar's lawyers decided to file a complaint against Gerald Darmanin, accusing him of having defamed Audrey Pulvar by his remarks about his remarks against the demonstration of police officers in front of the National Assembly protesting against the supposed leniency of justice, in the presence of Gérald Darmanin, at the very moment when the Minister of Justice was defending his bill before the deputies "For confidence in the judicial institution".
