une phrase universelle

“Nos familles sont là-bas” Cette phrase universelle, crié en temps de violences et de guerre, et d’oppression C’est comme si certains tournent en rond, leurs voix se brisent, tellement ils/elles ont essayé(e)s de se faire entendre, alors que d’autres sont entendu(e)s dès la première seconde…. A few words on this piece. We first published it…

Media, skewered angles, and civilization

To be uncivilized, you have to be a monster. Not an animal, but a monster. In the past few weeks, we have seen prices sky rocket to new horrible proportions around the world. Genocides continue, violence and wars continue in many regions across the globe. Raging because jealousy is a human emotion men cannot learn…

Un an… de mouvances. Une défense de quoi?

Un an et un mois s’est écoulé déjà depuis le début des confinements. Une année mouvementée, qui est à tout jamais gravée dans les pages de l’Histoire et qui continuerait. Le mouvementé s’est traduit par la reprise de manifestations dans les rues contre certaines formes de corruptions institutionnelles, et, en partie aussi, dans de nombreux…

Deal with the pressure. Deal with the bad vibes as they say. All in all, the inspiration…

Crime Meets Dirty Politics. Something is Wrong With This.
