"La propriété majeure des intellectuels est l'illusion de la liberté à l'égard des déterminismes sociaux qui fait qu'ils sont particulièrement soumis à ces déterminismes"

– Bourdieu, dans "Les grands entretiens du cercle", Institut national de l'audiovisuel (France) 1998


“Unfair, somewhat yes, but economically sound” Fuck I hate those words. More profitable to market a drug that kills some people and settle out of court than withdraw it. Unfair but economically sound. More profitable to outsource garment production to shady countries with criminal worker harassment and union leaders assassination than paying living wages and build safe working areas. Unfair but economically sound. Economically sound = more money/power for the plutocrats… Sharpening my pitchfork.

"Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense."

"There have been only two taboos in the world: sex and death. It is very strange why sex and death have been the two taboos not to be talked about, to be avoided. They are deeply connected. Sex represents life because all life arises out of sex, and death represents the end. And both have been taboo - don't talk about sex and don't talk about death."

— Rajneesh

This short history of how the Phoebus Cartel (or the Global Lightbulb Conspiracy to you and me) reduced the life of the average incandescent bulb from 2000 hours to 1000 pretty much sums up everything wrong with capitalism.


Bravo à Olivier Berruyer pour son exceptionnel travail d'analyse de la propagande de guerre des médias main stream français


“Good mathematicians see analogies. Great mathematicians see analogies between analogies.”

"Quand le signe signifie un concept, il procède à une espèce de reterritorialisation spirituelle ou mentale"

— Gilles Deleuze


Des populations entières d'insectes s'écroulent. Dying canaries in a coal mine... but we keep digging.


An interesting tale about… bureaucracy and hypocrisy?

"L'économie se porte bien: il y a plus de gens riches cette année que l'an passé [donc les gens sont moins pauvres!]"
