  • [fr] Standblog : La démission de Nicolas Hulot.

    Au-delà de l’organisation de l’Etat, ce qui cloche, ce qui nous mène dans le mur et que les chefs d’Etat doivent corriger de toute urgence, c’est le modèle économique dominant. Pendant que « la planète est en train de devenir une étuve, que nos ressources naturelles s’épuisent, que la biodiversité fond comme la neige au soleil », Emmanuel Macron, Edouard Philippe comme tous les dirigeants de la planète, pensent croissance, PIB, relance de la consommation…

    Bref, dixit Hulot, « on s’évertue à entretenir voire à réanimer un modèle économique marchand qui est la cause de tous ces désordres ». Et alors que « l’enjeu écologique est un enjeu culturel, sociétal, civilisationnel, on ne s’est pas du tout mis en ordre de marche pour l’aborder comme cela ».

  • Kottke: In praise of public libraries.

    Your time at the library comes with absolutely no expectation that you buy anything. Or even that you even transact at all. And there’s certainly no implication that your data or your rights are being surrendered in return for the services you partake in.

    This rare openness and neutrality imbues libraries with a distinct sense of community, of us, of everyone having come together to fund and build and participate in this collective sharing of knowledge and space. All of that seems exceedingly rare in this increasingly commercial, exposed world of ours. In a way it’s quite amazing that the concept continues to persist at all.
