In general nobody should ever blame me , a journalist in particular, I would not have warned him over and over again of his own narcissism respectively of himself.
It would not be necessary for every journalist to be an investigative “hero”. It would be already sufficent if the majority of journalists simply watched the world humbly and modestly from as many perspectives as possible and if they would always tell all the narratives and real facts in a defragmented context.
The apparent total failure in containing the allegedly politically motivated violence, aka religious fascism, is in fact the success of a propaganda industry which has lost its “reality monopoly” to the Internet. And if the process continues that Tim Berners-Lee’s invention is being highjacked by populistic media pundits and “security-experts” this will be then the most embarrassing fact of all. Especially since it is also against the massacred journalists who died for truthfulness to stop propaganda.
The “pay-back” of the “arab spring” 10 years after 9/11 is coming home to those who ignited this foolish adventure. “Moderate rebels”, aka criminals hired for regime change e.g. in Syria, can not only be useful abroad to serve the interests of a few in power, - for all our beloved security these criminals can be used to out-manoeuvred the legislative in cases of suspicion of “terrorism”.
Since coming to power, leader Macron has changed his position many times. Before the decree of the state of emergency expired today Macron was silently planning to transform the bulk of the state of emergency powers into ordinary law. This is crafted by a “ministry of fear” and I am still of the opinion that the apparent total failure is in fact the success of a propaganda industry and therefor the most embarrassing fact of all.
Bypassing a legislative system and leaving decisions to the executive branch of an already weak political system will not reverse the path we’re going once this “Moderate rebels” bombed out of their holes in Raqqa return home. Its is crystal clear: these criminals have real combat experience. And what to do with a lunatic who is using his car?
Opponents to Mr Macron’s anti-terror bill fear the legislation will revive a form of behaviour that marked the darkest hours of France’s occupation by the Nazis: denunciation. Lepen is still out there. And moreover after the disastrous results of two one term presidents, screwing up entire societies in Libya and Mali, now another on term president is free to experiment with measures that are totally alien to the basics of our known liberties. The next step will be the censoring the cyberspace so we all feel save.
