« Vous prenez dix égoutiers qui sont partis à la retraite à 54 ans. Vous revenez dix ans plus tard, y en a à peu près sept ou huit qui sont décédés. On va mourir dans les égouts en fait », résumait l’un d’eux au micro de France Inter ce jeudi 16 janvier.

Dans l’art de prendre les Français pour des idiots, les syndicalistes pour des courroies de transmission, et les parlementaires pour des pantins, le couple Macron-Philippe est devenu champion.

Don't get me wrong. The European medieval societies were extremely exploitative and unjust, I don't intend to argue otherwise. But I do want to argue that to think of them as incomparably unjust, as beyond the pale of what is imaginable, serves only to obscure the injustice of the societies that followed.

Our rulers have invented fictional barbarians only to mask their own barbarism.

These events, particularly Columbus's geographically illiterate meanderings, inaugurated a new phase in European, and eventually, world history. European invaders began to systematically occupy American lands, murdering, and, eventually, exploiting their population. This would evolve into what we now know as "colonialism". This system of overseas exploitation gave birth to a new class of people: overseas murderers (explorers) and continental managers of murder (merchants, bankers, etc).

Since our answer is not to be found in culture, perhaps we should look to changes a little bit more... material.

Some historians provide an exact date for the beginning of the renaissance (also known as the early modern era): 1492. This date is notable for two things: the rescue of Christopher Columbus's lost-ass ship by native americans, and the violent expulsion of Muslims and Jews from current-day Spain.

The first thing I'd like to do is reject the popular image I've sketched above. Particularly, I'd like to do so by drawing a contrast between popular images of the middle ages and popular images of the renaissance.

I was taught at school that the period of the renaissance was defined by the appearance of unprecedented philosophical, artistic, and religious ideas, which was caused by the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman texts. This is complete horseshit.

Today, I'd like to ask a question.

Why is it that, when you imagine the European middle ages, you think of mud-covered illiterates who don't know what cats look like? Why are the middle ages a period of violence, ignorance, and poverty, a "dark ages" where little of note took place, and the periods that follow aren't?

Je viens d'avoir une idée brillante pour palier aux problèmes de la voiture électrique

Imaginez. On construit une sorte de réseau éléctrique à laquelle la voiture serait constamment branchée: plus de batterie (ou juste une de secours).
Ensuite, on fait en sorte de pouvoir mettre énormément de monde dans chacune de ces voitures, en créant un maillage du terrtoire très bien organisé

et pour le petit nom j'ai une idée, vous me dites ce que vous en pensez, ça s'appellerait le train
