  • LIVRE ROUGE: Manifeste pour une Révolution politique pour by Fabrice Dagenais

    By Fabrice Dagenais

    En considération des prochaines élections présidentielles françaises, et à l’évidence que los angeles country est avide de vrais changements, il parait judicieux, et pressing de porter ce Manifeste à l. a. connaissance d’électeurs français, comme los angeles seule substitute attainable aux clivages politiques.

    Publié séparément sous le titre « Livre Rouge, Manifeste pour une révolution politique », ce Manifeste est le troisième volet du livre intitulé « Bleu, Blanc, Rouge, les Français sont-ils plus cons que les autres ? », dont il est extrait. Il ne s’agit donc que du troisième chapitre du livre, et non d’une trilogie. Comme tel, ce Manifeste n’était donc pas destiné à être publié séparément, mais bien comme suite logique des deux chapitres précédents.

    Mais vu l’urgence, l’importance des prochaines élections, et l. a. conjoncture propice d’un véritable désir populaire de changements, il devient évident que l’application des préceptes de ce Manifeste représente peut-être l’ultime probability de sauver l. a. démocratie et de redonner vitalité et espoir à ce grand corps malade qu’est los angeles France. vehicle ce Manifeste, contrairement à certains programmes électoraux qui promettent des changements radicaux en politique, est vraiment radical, mais dans le sens propre du terme « racine ». C’est donc un retour aux resources, a l’origine des péchés originels de los angeles démocratie dont il s’agit, et qu’il faut expressément, fixer si celle-ci doit survivre.

    À cet égard, ce Manifeste en contient deux.
    1.Manifeste pour une révolution politique de los angeles démocratie.
    2.Manifeste pour une révolution politique pour une nouvelle république

  • Nothelfer (Essays) (German Edition) by Bodo Hell

    By Bodo Hell

    Der vorliegende (Pseudo-)Essay schlingert sowohl durch die meist zweifelhafte Geschichte und überdeutliche Passionserfahrung der bereits konzipierten heiligen Vorläuferinnen und Intercessores (Dazwischentreter): von den three hl. Madeln Katharina, Barbara und Margaretha über die anderen stillen oder auftrumpfenden Blutzeugen (nur einer der 14 Sécurablen ist eines natürlichen Todes gestorben, nämlich der athenisch-südfranzösische Hirschkuh-Ägidius, wie er uns in Igls oder St. Gilgen ziemlich verdeckt entgegentritt). Daß guy in einem heutigen Hilfsgeisterparcours nicht bei Achazi, Aegidi, Babsi, Blasi, Christopherl, Cyriak, Denis, Erasmus, Eustachius, Gretl, Jörg, Kathl, Pantaleon und Veit samt ihren Ersatzmännern und -frauen (Dorli, Ossi, Wolfi etc.) stehenbleiben kann, versteht sich von selbst, denn auch Wiborada, Johann Sebastian, Bruder Klaus, die Max-Ernst’sche Ziegelstein-Cäcilia, der Sternschnuppen-Laurentius und Flauberts Fackentoni samt seinen von den sexualisierten Kunstmalern so geliebten Versuchungen sollten nicht fehlen und mit ihren je spezifischen Nothelferaspekten durchgekaut werden.Ob sich ein Seelenanalytiker eine klare Zuordnung dieser therapeutischen Gestalten zu den vielfältigen Krankheitsbildern von Soma, Amor und Psyche schafft, bleibt zu bezweifeln. Alle beglaubigten und privaten Nothelfer/innen haben das Zeug zum Helfen, und eine erkleckliche und halbwegs ausreichende Zahl dieser helpers in want wird in Bodo Hells neuem Bändchen nicht nur literarisch vorgeführt.
