Suback est un mot balinais qui date entre le 9ème et le 11ème siècle. Il s’agit d’une association villageoise qui s’occupe de l’eau, des droits sur l’eau et de l’irrigation. C’est une institution sociale et religieuse et elle est écologiquement durable. Cette association d’agriculteurs est démocratique. Elle partage la responsabilité des eaux d’irrigation communes, point important étant donné que la riziculture génère la prospérité. La réglementation d’un système qui attribue une part équitable à chacun est un modèle de coopération mutuelle. Il est autonome et a été pratiqué dans les lieux de culte traditionnels. Cependant, seuls les hommes mariés peuvent voter.

La liberté d’opinion, l’égalité des électeurs, le droit coutumier, les droits de l’homme et l’élection régulière de fonctionnaires font partie de la tradition balinaise. Il peut s’agir de sujets concernant la religion ou du moment où il faut produire du riz. Le processus de vote consiste à demander l’avis des membres et la loi correspond à la majorité des votes.

Bali, a traditional democracy, a unesco-listed social system

In Bali, suback is a balinese word which dates from the 9th-11th century. It is a village association that deals with water, water rights and irrigation. It is a social and religious institution and it is ecologically sustainable. This democratic association of farmers shared responsibility for shared irrigation waters; an important subject as the rice-terraces generate prosperity. Regulating a system that apprortions a fair share to everyone is a model of mutual cooperation. It is self-governing and has been practiced at traditional places of worship. However, only married men can vote.

Freedom of opinion, equality of voters, customary laws, human rights and regular election to vote officials are part of Balinese tradition. It can deal with topics about religion or about when to produce rice. The voting process includes asking for the opinions of the members and the law correspond to the majority of the vote.

At the Vernets fire station, around noon, you could find a queue speaking all languages that blocked two streets in Geneva. A person shouts: “We have to queue while we get here to get them fucked”. The tone rises, the irritation is felt, which gives a rather negative image of foreigners to the people of Geneva. Indeed, on Sunday 26 May 2019, the citizens of the 27 Member States are called upon to vote for their representatives in parliament, the MEPs. But in Geneva, only if they are ready to trample on 2 hours in the sun… Enough to dissuade many (sick or disabled people, parents of young children, etc.), but certainly not far-right voters.

Indeed, apart from Estonians who vote online,  the consulate’s dismissive deterrence operation must be braved in order to be able to vote because the fire station is far too small to accommodate all these people. And all this to vote for representatives who have no power because it is the European Commission that has the monopoly of power and who is elected by the leaders of the Member States.

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case. In the United Kingdom, citizens of the European Union have been denied the right to vote because of administrative error.

“I will still be there after the Europeans. You are not sure,” Macron told his ministers. This shows how European leaders give no power to this vote, apart from changing ministers, which has nothing to do with it and does not change anything. This indicates a fairly strong sense of impunity and certainly also a great deal of contempt for the power given to the people.

This contempt is not inevitable, when will online voting become a reality and not only in Estonia?

A la caserne des Vernets vers midi, on pouvait trouver une queue parlant toutes les langues qui bloquaient deux rues à Genève. Une personne crie: « We have to queue while we get here to get them fucked ». Le ton monte, l’énervement se fait sentir ce qui donne une image assez négative des étrangers aux genevois. En effet, en ce dimanche 26 mai 2019, les citoyens des 27 pays membres sont appelés à voter pour leurs représentants au parlement, les députés européens. Mais à Genève, seulement s’ils sont prêts à piétiner 2h au soleil… De quoi en dissuader beaucoup (personnes malades ou souffrant d’un handicap, les parents d’enfants en bas âge, etc.), mais sûrement pas les électeurs d’extrême droite.

Effectivement, en dehors des Estoniens qui votent en ligne, il faut braver la méprisante opération de dissuasion du consulat pour pouvoir voter puisque la caserne est beaucoup trop petite pour accueillir tout ce monde. Et tout ça pour voter pour des représentants qui n’ont aucun pouvoir puisque c’est la commission européenne qui a le monopole du pouvoir et qui est élue, elle, par les dirigeants des pays membres.

Malheureusement, ce n’est pas un cas isolé. Au Royaume-Uni, des citoyens de l’union européenne se sont vu refuser leur droit de vote pour cause d’erreur administrative.

« Moi, après les européennes, je serai toujours là. Vous, c’est pas sûr » a déclaré Macron à ses ministres. Cela montre à quel point les dirigeants européens ne donnent aucun pouvoir à ce vote, en dehors de celui de changer les ministres, ce qui n’a rien à voir et qui ne change rien. Cela dénote un sentiment d’impunité assez fort et certainement aussi beaucoup de mépris pour le pouvoir donné au peuple.

Ce mépris n’est pas une fatalité, à quand le vote en ligne et pas seulement en Estonie ?

Successful protesters

Let’s have a quick look back at the first four weeks of Yellow Vests protests and what they have already obtained:

·        Fuel tax hike abandoned

·        Pensioner’s tax hike abandoned

·         Rise of the minimal wage

·         The government considering the idea of implementing popular initiative vote in the constitution

·         75% approval from the population after their 5th week of action

It may seem little to many French people, but remember this year’s four month of traditional hard rail strikes did not obtain a single thing but they have lost four months of salary. And it’s been like this for decades. Despite what the vast majority of media report about this movement, it is not about setting Paris monuments on fire. So far we can learn a lot from the Yellow Vests’ successful methods:

– The Yellow Vests have no representatives, no head to corrupt or to put in jail. The movement uses a multitude of social media platforms to coordinate local groups. Thinkers feed this network and, thanks to the internet, ideas and opinions are debated within a matter of hours. The Yellow Vests achieved efficiency without centralized authority.

– Their organization is highly flexible and reactive. Although the movement started against a fuel tax hike, the idea that direct democracy was the solution became prominent in less than a week. Another example is how quick they asked people to stop reacting to violence by violence between December 8th and 15th as soon as the people realised it was counter-productive and far from their goal.

– Yellow Vests do not focus on the capital city although this is the visible part in the media. They consider it would be giving too much importance to the head of state while they promote the idea of power coming from the people.

– They focus their efforts against the economic interests of those who command the government rather than symbols of power. So far by opening highway tolls, Vinci admitted suffering dozens of millions of loss and their shareholders are now panicking. The national confederation of big retailers are alarmed by 40% sales loss before Christmas. The political elites sure don’t listen to the streets but they sure consider these alarms coming from the conglomerates who finance their way of life.

This isn’t all new, most of it has been not only thought trough but also employed in the past, notably by Charles Stewart Parnell (Boycott https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boycott) and Gandhi (Salt march https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_March).

La naïveté grotesque des enfants fait peine à voir, surtout si l’on veut bien la comparer à la maturité sereine qui caractérise les adultes. Par exemple, l’enfant croit au Père Noël. L’adulte non. L’adulte ne croit pas au Père Noël. Il vote.

Pierre Desproges 

“The grotesque naivety of children is painful to see, especially if we compare it to the serene maturity that characterizes adults. For example, the child believes in Santa Claus. The adult doesn’t. The adult does not believe in Santa Claus. He votes.” — Pierre Desproges
