INFORMATION CLEARING HOUSE. NEWS, COMMENTARY & INSIGHT UK Indymedia Le Grand Soir Ship of Fools «La dette neutralise le temps, matière première de tout changement politique ou social» Entretien de Maurizio Lazzarato conduit par Agnès Rousseau Vous dites que l’Homo debitor est la nouvelle figure de l’Homo economicus. Quelles sont les caractéristiques de ce « nouvel homme »? Maurizio Lazzarato: De nombreux services sociaux, comme la formation ou la santé, ont été transformés en assurance individuelle ou en crédit. Le mode de développement néolibéral est fondé sur le crédit et l’endettement. Le droit à la formation ou au logement s’est transformé en droit au crédit… C’est une logique qui ne fonctionne que si l’économie est en expansion. En quoi cela fonde-t-il un nouveau rapport social, et un nouveau rapport au temps? J’ai repris l’hypothèse que développe Friedrich Nietzsche: le rapport social fondamental n’est pas l’échange économique ou l’échange symbolique, mais le rapport débiteur-créditeur. Une dette, ce n’est pas seulement de l’argent à rembourser, mais des comportements à ajuster, du temps passé à se plier à des contraintes, écrivez-vous.

SchNEWS - Direct Action Newsheet Indymedia : un média radical de lutte à l'heure du Web 2.0 ? - L'Atelier - médias libres À la fin des années 1990, alors qu’Internet prend son essor et qu’un mouvement large de refus de la mondialisation « néo-libérale » se développe, la question de la réappropriation des médias est dans beaucoup d’esprits. En 1999, pour la durée du contre-sommet de l’OMC à Seattle, un Media Center indépendant (IMC pour Independant media center) est mis en place par une poignée de médiactivistes. Son but est double. Il consiste d’une part à diffuser aux médias des informations produites et contrôlée par les militant-e-s, et d’autre part à fournir à ces dernier-e-s un moyen de coordonner leurs actions à travers une plateforme Web d’autopublication. En raison du succès de cette zone autonome d’information et de communication (un million de connexions par jour), l’expérience sera renouvelée à chaque contre-sommet (à Prague, Nice, Gènes, Evian, etc.).

The Ecologist Top 10 foods to forage Thanks to modern agricultural methods, foraging – once a part of the majority’s daily life – has faded away, replaced by regular trips to the supermarket instead. Recently, however, there has been a revival of interest in raiding nature’s larder thanks to increased awareness of the health benefits of wild food, not to mention the TV exploits of Bear Grylls, Ray Mears and co. But it foraging is about more than just food. It gets us out into the countryside and helps to cultivate an intimate appreciation of nature, re-establishing a connection severed by modern urban life. But for the beginner, foraging should come with a health warning as it’s easy to mistake a deadly fungus for an innocent field mushroom. Mushrooms Neither animal nor vegetable, mushrooms are a type of fungi and the largest living organisms on Earth, some reaching three miles in length. Wild Garlic Wild garlic is a good all-rounder. Elder There are more uses for elderflowers than for any other type of blossom.
