Apparemment Onfray aime trop souvent simplifier pour “engager son public” – c’est bien dommage… Quelque fois cela peut-être utile, mais c’est un couteau à deux tranchants! Malgré une manière désastreuse d’épouser beaucoup trop vite les théories d’Hannah Arendt sur la “collaboration Juive” au Holocauste*, merci beaucoup pour la (ma) découverte de Günther Anders (cf. English bio by Harold Marcuse) et à quel point la critique de Guy Debord dans La Société du Spectacle s’inspirerait d’Anders, une critique décisive de la culpabilité de Heidegger, et le rappel que philosophie et vie ne devraient faire qu’un. (Lanzmann: “La première chose face à une catastrophe pareille, c’est l’humilité.”) – Liens Audio […]

RUSSELL BRAND: … We have become prisoners of comfort in the absence of meaning…. Apathy is a rational reaction to a system that no longer represents, hears or addresses the vast majority of people. A system that is apathetic, in fact, to the needs of the people it was designed to serve…. Capitalism is not real; it is an idea. America is not real; it is an idea that someone had ages ago. Britain, Christianity, Islam, karate, Wednesdays are all just ideas that we choose to believe in and very nice ideas they are, too, when they serve a purpose. These concepts, though, cannot be served to the detriment of actual reality… In 2013 (another made-up imaginary concept) we cannot afford to giggle, drivel and burp like giant, pube-covered babies about quaint, old-fashioned notions like nation, capitalism and consumerism simply because it’s convenient for the tiny, greedy, myopic sliver of the population that those outmoded ideas serve … the institutions that have to be fastidiously kept in place to maintain this duplicitous order: propaganda, police, media, lies. Now is the time to continue the great legacy of the left, in harmony with its implicit spiritual principles. Time may only be a human concept and therefore ultimately unreal, but what is irrefutably real is that this is the time for us to wake up…

Syria, August 2013. Writers, artists, filmmakers and anti-war activists try to do something about war and violence. This is a partial transcript of a Mike Wallace interview during the Vietnam war: “You just spray the area on them and so you can’t know how many you killed ‘cause they were going fast. So I might have killed ten or fifteen of them.” Q. “Men, women, and children?” A. “Men, women, and children.” Q. “And babies?” A. “And babies.” + Frazier Dougherty & Jon Hendricks & Irving Petlin, Ernst Friedrich, Francisco Goya, Nino Kirtadze, Pablo Picasso…
