For Emmanuel Macron, the relationship between France and Algeria is reminiscent of Paul Klee’s painting Angelus Novus.

It’s about the old bridge…

Built in the Middle Ages and now in ruins, but whose arches are still placed on the river Lavoute-sur-Loire, the inhabitants will vote to know if the remains that tell me the Awakening of the Upper Loire are saved … Because. Under the penalty of losing the 77,000 euros offered by the Heritage Foundation, we have to start work by the end of the month, but even with this subsidy, it will remain in the bonbon account, so we put it in the town hall. deciding whether or not to sacrifice himself to save the past…

There is sometimes richness in this past: I read in the Dispatch that in Balma families brought old things to auctioneers, and rooms lined with antique tea sets became napoleons, for 2,000 euros – was it necessary for an old bridge? In search of the lofts of the Haute-Loire…

There’s also a debate about the past, and read director Etienne Gernelle’s rather acidic editorial at Le Point aimed at my apple! – and this press review – because last Thursday I criticized Le Point on its pages for not correcting Michel Welbeck, who once accused Jean-Paul Sartre of calling for the murder of white people. It’s about Sartre’s 1961 foreword to Frans Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth… You’ll read it, I’ll give you lots of links, but it’s hard to discuss it in a few sentences. long old texts…

In Marianna, I note that a book is coming out about Frantz Fanon, this decolonizing Martinique psychiatrist whose author, Kevin Boucaud-Victoire, rewrites Fanon in a universalist vein—the past carries our words.

Let me also mention that Etienne Gernelle evokes this sentence about me.We are usually more slanderous than malicious.– bang! It’s La Rochefoucauld, it’s chic to make fun of a beautiful language…

At the same point comes an important interview between the writer Kamel Daoud, the conscience of the newspaper and Emmanuel Macron about the past and present relationship between Algeria and France…

Macron, who described colonization as a “crime against humanity” in 2017, does not use the word – he did not measure how risky Algeria is, says the head of state, who refuses to apologize. Kamel Daoud says he appears to be a “young president who doesn’t have time” to restore shared memories. But two people are working on it.

Macron says that France needs to get out of the amnesia it inflicted on Algeria, Daoud says that he is an Algerian, silenced about the civil war of the 90s and brings Macron to our modern issues. Iranian women have already won because they are not afraid to die, a Nietzschean situation, says the president who does not know how to discuss without philosophy.

He also tells Macron that France-Algeria relations Angelus novus is like Paul Klee’s painting “pushing towards the future but looking back with a fearful gaze”.

I will only reprimand Point here in a friendly way, not to repeat this fragile description that Macron reminds us of the philosopher Paul Ricoeur, who is Macron’s assistant, Ricoeur, we always talk about his past. ..

The large texts of newspapers such as Daoud-Macron du Point encourage us to go further… I learned on the Télérama website that Klee’s painting was bought in 1921 by the German-Jewish philosopher Walter Benjamin for four cents. he saw the “angel of history” there, and when he committed suicide on the French-Spanish border in 1940, when he was banished and banned from the world, the painting still accompanied him…

We are also talking about the future…

We (who knows) will be seen by humans, the universe beyond Earth and first to Mars, Elon Musk’s only real stake, confirms Obs in a detailed portrait of the billionaire’s roots steeped in science fiction. , who wants to take a tunneling machine on a rocket to excavate the future caves of our exile on Mars…

Musk’s exploration is a journey into an idealistic and terrifying future; he thinks that people with the highest IQ should have children, and he made nine, he is a follower of a philosophy, a follower of a long-term philosophy, it is better for the future of the species to save more citizens of rich countries in crisis. more useful than those of poor countries… Together with his friends Peter Thiel and David Sacks, he created Pay Pal, a Silicon Valley correction, with the idea that technology will save the world and that states should not let regulations stop the march. into the future – then a new political era, techno-feudalism, in which technology lords more powerful than governments rule over humanity, says economist Cedric Durant…

What will remain of the ruins of our age.

In Télérama, researcher Anthony Galluzo from Saint-Etienne accompanies the book he published on the legend of Silicon Valley, the myth of the entrepreneur-hero, Musk says that, like Steve Jobs before him, he is first and foremost a good customer, go “holy”.

Far from bluffing in the world, I have read that American and Japanese scientists equipped with technology want to find out why the heart is on the left side… It is in the zebrafish in the cilia of the cell.. Musk can not help…

Finally, we are talking about oil…

In Liberation you will read a long epic study where we see a middling diplomat businessman so prosperous that he forgets he bought a Bentley, a liquid agent, an iPad, and a diary full of secret accounting to turn your head, and Congolese Brazzaville’s oil revenues benefit President Nguesso’s clan even more. could be directed to

But oil is not everything, because Figaro is still at Atlantic Shipyards, a ship designed for the Accor hotel group, which will be the world’s largest sailing ship and transport its privileged passengers in the Aegean Sea in 2026. The Mediterranean Sea, where the sea and civilization were born…

In Le Monde I read about the Wicklin fishing family from Calvados, they tell the story of three generations: Jean-Marie, 90, Alain, 74, and Jérôme, 49, whose lives have been earned by the truth of the sea, diesel fuel, a long time dragged into nets by German mines, cold, prosperity , there were crises, they don’t know how this day will pass…

In Montage and Progress, you’ll read at the end of a defunct courthouse called Toupargel turned into “La place du marché,” a company that delivers fresh produce to the home, frozen food deep into the countryside. by phone because the internet is complicated; We follow Odile’s last tour of the Puy-de-Dôme, soup, cabbage, a disabled lady dreading tomorrow, “so it’s over,” and yes, it’s over.
