♦ Description : “The development of mass culture has led to the erosion of autonomous forms of popular culture and the dissolution of social ties in favor of an artificial world of isolated individuals, the foundation of the consumer society. Capitalism can not therefore be reduced to a system of economic exploitation, it represents a “total social fact”. It is all about the internalization of an imaginary and the development of a culture of permanent entertainment. This standardization of behaviors and aspirations is presented as the liberation of all constraints (social, spatial, temporal, etc.). Overwhelmed and triumphant, mass culture (American series, new technologies, football, video games, etc.) finds defenders even among so-called intellectuals. It is therefore urgent and necessary to carry out an uncompromising criticism of the capitalist way of life and to demonstrate how our civilization of leisure participates in the domestication of peoples.”

“Offensive”

“The Libertarian and Social Offensive (OLS) is a French collective created by activists who left the network No Pasaran in April 2003. It was born from a desire to participate in the construction of a real offensive that puts an end to capitalism to patriarchy, which contributes to the development of future futures without any relation of domination or exploitation.

The group publishes a quarterly magazine, Offensive, mainly organized around a thematic file and which has more than 800 subscribers. In addition, the group hosts a radio program on Radio libertaire in Paris and Radio Grenouille in Marseille. Today the OLS has six groups (Brussels, Marseille, Paris, Grenoble, Avignon, Toulouse).”

Description : Le développement de la culture de masse a entraîné l'érosion des formes autonomes de culture populaire et la dissolution des liens sociaux au profit d'un monde artificiel d'individus isolés, fondement de la société de consommation. Le capitalisme ne peut donc être réduit à un système d'exploitation économique, il représente un "fait social total".II ne tient que sur l'intériorisation d'un imaginaire et grâce au développement d'une culture du divertissement permanent. Cette uniformisation des comportements et des aspirations se présente comme l'affranchissement de toutes les contraintes (sociales, spatiales, temporelles, etc.). Survalorisée et triomphante, la culture de masse (séries américaines, nouvelles technologies, football, jeux vidéos, etc.) trouve des défenseurs même chez les intellectuels dits contestataires. Il est donc urgent et nécessaire de mener une critique intransigeante du mode de vie capitaliste et de démontrer comment notre civilisation du loisir participe de la domestication des peuples.

Description : Visionnage boulimique de séries, addiction aux jeux vidéo, gamification des activités sociales, consommation devenue divertissement ordinaire, pornographie banalisée, invasion des musées par les marques, etc. Plus aucun espace n'échappe aux productions culturelles du capitalisme hypermoderne. Le culte du fun et de la transgression, le refus immature des contraintes, la quête de sensations fortes, l'exaltation du narcissisme et les bricolages identitaires, fabriquent un nouveau type d'individu. Face à cette déferlante, journalistes, chercheurs et intellectuels, y compris les plus subversifs - et peut-être même surtout eux -, ont rendu les armes. A tel point que certains voient dans la culture de masse l'art de notre temps, démocratique et... rebelle. D'autres se contentent d'y dépister les stéréotypes et les rapports de domination et de fantasmer une possible réappropriation des contenus. Ce livre prend le contre-pied de ces abdications. Il s'inscrit dans une tradition de critique de l'aliénation, du spectacle et des modes de vie capitaliste, qu'il ravive en démontrant comment les derniers avatars de la culture de masse, omniprésents et plus efficaces que jamais, laminent les sociétés et domestiquent les esprits.

Description : Changing your mind to change the world is the general principle proposed to educate for responsibility. Using an interdisciplinary scientific approach, this book dissects the functioning of the ego, that is to say the belief in a self, an illusion that causes disharmony. After an original modeling of the notion of responsibility, the author deduces that it is incumbent on all of us to become aware of the relationship between our own minds and the world. Thus, gaining consistency and awareness, everyone would have the potential to free themselves from the illusion of the ego and contribute to a more harmonious world. This book therefore proposes psychospiritual skills, favored in particular by different forms of reflexivity and by meditation (and mindfulness), which can serve as a basis for a curriculum to educate for responsibility. This academic connection between meditation and ethics is a major innovative contribution.

Description : Changer son esprit pour changer le monde, voilà le principe général proposé pour éduquer à la responsabilité. Par une approche scientifique interdisciplinaire, cet ouvrage dissèque le fonctionnement de l’égo, c’est-à-dire ici la croyance en un soi, illusion qui provoque la disharmonie. Après une modélisation originale de la notion de responsabilité, il en déduit qu’il incombe à chacun de prendre conscience de la relation entre son propre esprit et le monde. Ainsi, gagnant en cohérence et en conscience, chacun aurait le potentiel de se libérer de l’illusion de l’égo et de contribuer à un monde plus harmonieux. L’ouvrage propose en conséquence des compétences psychospirituelles, favorisées notamment par différentes formes de réflexivités et par la méditation (ou pleine conscience), pouvant servir de base à un curriculum pour éduquer à la responsabilité. Cette mise en lien académique entre méditation et éthique constitue un apport novateur majeur.

Description : L’idée de progrès s’est longtemps limitée au perfectionnement de la technique et à la commercialisation. Les nouvelles technologies, le numérique ou les objets connectés apparaissent comme des pièges pour bon nombre de décideurs et de concepteurs. L’embarras du choix des produits 2 appelle à la réinvention d’une nouvelle économie, basée sur les véritables exigences des usagers et non pas seulement sur le profit financier. L’utilisation étant la finalité d’un produit, une innovation devrait en effet toujours être une amélioration des qualités d’usage. L’écologie de l’usage devrait ainsi devenir la principale richesse, visant la qualité de vie et le bien-être, et le savoir d’achat remplacer le pouvoir d’achat. Cet ouvrage offre une méthodologie qui permet au lecteur de disposer d’une meilleure information pour choisir, acheter, installer, utiliser, entretenir et recycler ses produits, tout en se préoccupant de son bilan carbone et de son empreinte écologique.

Description : What is the relationship between democracy and critical thinking? What must a citizen in a democracy know to make the word democracy meaningful? In A Short Course in Intellectual Self-Defense, historian and educator Normand Baillargeon provides readers with the tools to see through the spin and jargon of everyday politics and news reporting in order to decide for themselves what is at stake and how to ask the necessary questions to protect themselves from the manipulations of the government and the media. Whether the issue be the call to what we’re told will be a bloodless war, the "debate" around Intelligent Design, or the meaning of a military expenditure, Baillargeon teaches readers to evaluate information and sort fact from official and media spin.

Description : In this work Le Bon makes a careful study of the character and scope of the activities of crowds and mobs. He bases all his propositions about these phenomena on his general theory of the nature of social interpretation as set forth in his prior work, Lois psychologiques de l'évolution des peuples. This theory involves a very sharp distinction between the social institutions and the social soul, the institutions being simply manifestations of the soul, and the latter alone a living or creative element. L'âme du peuple must then be studied first and foremost by the sociologist and all social phenomena must be explained by reference to this soul as cause. (...) The translation is as a whole very satisfactory, though occasionally an amusing error creeps in; rarely, however, to the serious detriment of the sense. Despite the general good appearance of the volume, the student cannot but regret the tripling in both bulk and price which it has undergone in the process of reproduction. -- Arthur F.

Description : "Bernays' honest and practical manual provides much insight into some of the most powerful and influential institutions of contemporary industrial state capitalist democracies."--Noam Chomsky "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country."--Edward Bernays, Propaganda A seminal and controversial figure in the history of political thought and public relations, Edward Bernays (1891-1995), pioneered the scientific technique of shaping and manipulating public opinion, which he famously dubbed "engineering of consent." During World War I, he was an integral part of the U.S. Committee on Public Information (CPI), a powerful propaganda apparatus that was mobilized to package, advertise and sell the war to the American people as one that would "Make the World Safe for Democracy." The CPI would become the blueprint in which marketing strategies for future wars would be based upon. Bernays applied the techniques he had learned in the CPI and, incorporating some of the ideas of Walter Lipmann, became an outspoken proponent of propaganda as a tool for democratic and corporate manipulation of the population. His 1928 bombshell Propaganda lays out his eerily prescient vision for using propaganda to regiment the collective mind in a variety of areas, including government, politics, art, science and education. To read this book today is to frightfully comprehend what our contemporary institutions of government and business have become in regards to organized manipulation of the masses.

Description : A New York Times Bestseller The world’s leading intellectual offers a probing examination of the waning American Century, the nature of U.S. policies post-9/11, and the perils of valuing power above democracy and human rights In an incisive, thorough analysis of the current international situation, Noam Chomsky argues that the United States, through its military-first policies and its unstinting devotion to maintaining a world-spanning empire, is both risking catastrophe and wrecking the global commons. Drawing on a wide range of examples, from the expanding drone assassination program to the threat of nuclear warfare, as well as the flashpoints of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Israel/Palestine, he offers unexpected and nuanced insights into the workings of imperial power on our increasingly chaotic planet. In the process, Chomsky provides a brilliant anatomy of just how U.S. elites have grown ever more insulated from any democratic constraints on their power. While the broader population is lulled into apathy—diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable—the corporations and the rich have increasingly been allowed to do as they please. Fierce, unsparing, and meticulously documented, Who Rules the World? delivers the indispensable understanding of the central conflicts and dangers of our time that we have come to expect from Chomsky.
