Est-il éthique de toucher le RSA ?

Pamphlet en faveur des bénéficiaires du RSA : un message à tous les détracteurs du RSA

La Sécurité Sociale était créée en 1945 et depuis cette date jusqu’en 1960 elle était gérée par les travailleurs élus. C’est ensuite qu’elle a été détricotée par l’état ainsi que par d’autres organismes incluant les mutuelles. Le budget alloué à la branche ‘famille’ (dont le RSA fait partie) est indépendant de celui alloué à la branche ‘maladie’ : “chaque année, le budget de la branche Famille est voté par le Parlement dans le cadre de loi de lancement de la Sécurité sociale” (Caf). Pour en savoir plus, lire l’article de Frédéric Blizard : “Histoire de la protection sociale en France”.

l’idée de ‘plein emploi’ est un mensonge perpétré et perpétué par une classe politique qui ne comprend rien à l’économie et qui souhaite maintenir son statut et ses privilèges. Le fait est que le gouvernement ne peut survivre sans ponctionner les travailleurs via les taxes (qui ne sont autre que du vol) et via les impôts qu’il prétend être capable de ‘gérer’ (bien sûr on sait à quel point la gestion publique est un modèle d’efficacité et d’intégrité). Tout ça pour dire que ce ne sont pas les impôts et encore moins les taxes qui permettent de faire de belles choses mais que ce sont les initiatives d’êtres humains dotés avec la bonne attitude. Le ‘Public’ existerait même sans l’État. On peut penser notamment aux collectivités privées, aux associations à but non lucratif, ou encore aux communautés auto-gérées. Et si le RSA peut encourager de telles initiatives c’est très bien. En tout cas il faut arrêter de croire que ce sont les bénéficiaires du RSA qui plombent les finances de la société alors que ce n’est pas le cas. L’argent investi à profit dans le secteur bancaire, agroalimentaire et pharmaceutique : ce sont ceux-là les financements à la source du démantèlement de notre beau pays. Le problème n’est pas que la France n’a pas d’argent mais que l’argent est obtenu d’une manière indigne et qu’il est dépensé de manière inconsciente. Continue reading

My goldfish is made of electricity

… or, is literature an antidote to the destructive forces in the world?

“—One day I was a goldfish, and… One day I was a goldfish, and…” repeated Gerald all day long. He could never think through a single sentence. Besides, of course that he was a goldfish and he hasn’t changed, he is still a goldfish. Ha, but he never remembers this simple fact! I could not be mad at him because I knew that he was trying hard. But what do you expect of a friend with a span of two seconds of memory: he could try as hard as he wanted, it wouldn’t change anything, he would never be able to finish a simple sentence. Eight syllables, that was already a great achievement for a goldfish named Gerald. Even though I would like to explain it to him, he would forget the beginning of my sentence before I even reach the end of it. Besides, Gerald could not care less about learning the history but as an upside of his condition he never got himself into any troubles. He was just a quiet little goldfish. So, I decided to take care of him, I fed him and I watched him swimming around and around in the same round jar all day long. Though I found that watching at Gerald eating his tail was just perfect for allowing me to meditate in a serious fashion. Continue reading

Tyrants

A nice article from Linda that I wanted to share with all.

“Then the time has come for you to take the last step. You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him: you must love him.” {Orwell 324}

How could you be expected to love someone you do not know? A man who is only a face on a poster, another dictator with a moustache: like Hitler, Stalin and Saddam Hussein. This narcissistic attitude is typical of many an autocrat in history, societies in which the common people have lived under the system called tyranny. The Greek word turannos merely meant an absolute ruler unlimited by law or constitution {Etymonline}, but the cruel excesses of many of these rulers has turned it into quite a dirty word.

The ancient Athenians experimented with many forms of government, including the legendary and now revered demokratia. Before this, they were ruled by a tyrant named Pisistratus. He was considered mild…

I am an imaginal being

Recently, a sentence came to my ear, “what if religion is a misinterpreted astrological allegory?” Well, that is what I was always compelled to think: “The bible is an astrotheological literary hybrid”. Myself, I always referred to god and the son as being an analogy to the universe and the sun (our star). This was actually the faith that was held by many ancient religions; they knew that we are made of stardust and they knew that the consciousness was a universal field of vibrant energy. Ancient wisdom didn’t hold blind beliefs, instead, it held a tangible faith acquired through mystical experience: meditation was the root of all knowledge. Continue reading
