Francis Dupuis-Déri - Addio alle urne
Italiano | 2021 | 176 pages | ISBN: 8833021149 | EPUB | 2,9 MB

Affrontando con rigore e disincanto il «feticismo del voto», Dupuis-Déri fa al contempo un elogio dell'astensione che mette in causa lo stesso principio di rappresentanza, ovvero il mito fondatore delle democrazie occidentali. Un principio che per legittimarsi poggia su un ben preciso rituale - il voto - il cui scopo è alimentare la convinzione che il popolo parli davvero per bocca dei suoi rappresentanti. Ma basta uscire dalla retorica politica per accorgersi che le urne elettorali, il luogo sacro di questo rituale, sono sempre più disertate, e per una molteplicità di ragioni che vanno ben oltre quella «indifferenza» o «incompetenza» politica spesso invocate per liquidare un rifiuto che intacca le basi stesse del sistema elettorale. Oggi infatti l'astensionismo, pur continuando a essere biasimato, denigrato e talvolta persino perseguito, si va sempre più affermando come pratica politica consapevole..

Jacinda Ardern was swept to office in 2017 on a wave of popular enthusiasm dubbed 'Jacindamania'. In less than three months, she rose from deputy leader of the opposition to New Zealand's highest office. Her victory seemed heroic. Few in politics would have believed it possible; fewer still would have guessed at her resolve and compassionate leadership, which, in the wake of the horrific Christchurch mosque shootings of March 2019, brought her international acclaim. Since then, her decisive handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen her worldwide standing rise to the point where she is now celebrated as a model leader. In 2020 she won an historic, landslide victory and yet, characteristically, chose to govern in coalition with the Green Party.

Dans cette France oubliée, des initiatives, des projets, émergent, souvent hérités de l'ère paysanne et du mouvement des Gilets jaunes. …

Negli anni Novanta si aveva un sogno, quello di una finanza capace di sostituirsi all'economia reale e di garantire benessere e crescita illimitata. Ma il sogno è crollato. Il nostro mondo ha perso credibilità, si è ridotto a un involucro artificiale: si fa mostra di corpi dopati dalla chimica e dal fitness o rimodellati iperbolicamente dalla chirurgia estetica, mentre soccombe la vita privata esposta in vetrina e messa all'asta. Le ragioni dell'individuo scompaiono nell'individualismo di massa, spopola la coercizione del narcisismo da facebook e da twitter o dei pomeriggi da flàneur forzati all'Ikea e da Abercrombie…
