They blackmail us for jobs and cry wolf for growth when they are the first to destroy it. Their economic model, their consumption pattern, is being challenged by the lack of public support. It is not sectoral and this whole mass consumption pattern with globalized distribution is shattering.
Short circuits have honored their promises of greater profitability, innovation and environmental protection. Short circuits are much more favourable to economic growth:
And with regard to innovation, the short circuit allows all actors to better communicate, discuss and find local solutions for the benefit of producers, retailers and consumers. Innovation is about discussing local solutions together instead of relying on global transport.
Environment is linked to economy.In the UN 2019 global assessment report (https://www.ipbes.net/news/Media-Release-Global-Assessment) it is said that to “better understand the main causes of damage to biodiversity, a pattern that emerges is one of global interconnectivity – with resource extraction and production often occurring in one part of the world to satisfy the needs of distant consumers in other regions.”
The Report is dubbed “1,000,000 species threatened with extinction. ‘Transformative changes’ needed to restore and protect nature. Opposition from vested interests can be overcome for public good.”
It presents an illustrative list of possible actions to achieve sustainability. It promotes “approaches that empower consumers and producers through market transparency, improved distribution and localization (that revitalizes local economies), reformed supply chains and reduced food waste.” A “full and effective participation of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities in governance” is necessary. “We have already seen the first stirrings of actions and initiatives for transformative change, such as innovative policies by many countries, local authorities and businesses, but especially by young people worldwide.”
Gender equality means equal right to have access to work in the same way. The fact of assigning a job to a gender is not synonymous with freedom. On the other hand, if a person chooses on his or her own to work in a trade that is gender-specific, it does not mean that he or she is forced. On the contrary, it exercises its freedoms much more than those who accept jobs that do not suit them.
In short, don’t choose a profession based on your gender and by expressing your freedom to do what you want.
The house was three hours’ drive from work.
Then a lousy one bedroom flat,
With half the room bending with the roof
Then the house had no heating
The other had a stream that ran from the kitchen to the street through the living room
And the electricity installed 30 years ago
Notary and municipal elected official ass and shirt
Married, put to the trash the DASS mail that indicated substandard housing
Especially with a baby
3 months of double rent
Nice when we just moved in
And who pays for the hotel and the move into
The third apartment
The 1m20 bed barely fits in and no insulation
Damn it, near the prefecture.
Downstairs is the revolution of the construction workers
We’re more on their side than on the other.
But the two-metre flames on the asphalt
And the throws of REAL paving stones
We’re going to move
Among the great-grandparents
Who have a huge house
They only use the ground floor
New house, new move
This time it’s big
But the walls are infested
The little one has otitis then otitis then otitis
That’s it, we’ve been selected for a
New job, in a warmer climate
No more earaches
But the neighbour, when she flushes the toilet
It’s falling on our heads
That’s enough, this time we took
Legal insurance and not legal protection
They are obliged to repair
All of a sudden, they get busy…
But it’s flowing again,
And the works never end
The building next door burned down.
Yes, yes, yes, the one in front of the cathedral
It must be said that electricity in historic buildings
And even in our building,
leaves a lot to be desired
France is just a beautiful front,
A beautiful showcase
This time we’re not moving
We’re thinking this through
Two civil servant salaries
Doesn’t that make it possible to accommodate three people?
Are you kidding me?
This time, we’re going to move for good
We’re getting out of here.
And you know what else?
The movers refunded us 300 bucks.
Because we had organized everything so well.
That they had won a day’s work
This is the first time we’ve been valued
and that it’s in our interest to move.
And now, We don’t move anymore We are enjoying life….
She was a nurse At the hospital all the time Full-time He was a merchant He travelled all the time Full-time
And they had beautiful children
So far so good…… Until… Until it lasted more than ten years…
She worked full-time Except when she worked day and night He worked full-time Not counting his travelling Only three days a week Only half of his work week
Stress and lack of sleep Separation every week Unpaid overtime Full of pills
The tone has started to rise Up And up
And yet, they are smart And yet, they are better off than others No need to work after work No need to poison themselves at the supermarket And a healthy place
His self-esteem is now quite low She gives him a hard time He feels crushed She has found another one Available When he doesn’t work full time But at least now, she can also decompress An hour here and there It doesn’t make you dream But it keeps you going Now there are three of them to take care of the children Not to mention school and TV…
A broken household Confused children Confidence lowered And disputes That relieve stress On the nearest person It’s too late! Broken household
But the stress came from work Over-work And who’s going to argue with that? We can’t live without work Both have to go through it To be able to barely pay for what they need
If only they knew They could have discussed Getting out of the system.
Change their organization Another job Another informal job Create a cooperative Calling for a vote by popular initiative Change the country Live in another country Another… what?
Who can afford To work for free or for a low wage And this for long hours a week And over several months or even years? The best?
Or rather those who are like fish in water Well heeled ambitious ones? A few lazy sloths, Who make others do their job, And who can’t be fired? Ticks well attached? Windmill mites? Some fossils Who want to make their mark? A few taken to the neck, debts to the buttocks, Who are ready for anything?
The mother hen? No. The carrier pigeon? No. The field rat? No. The sick as a dog? No. Asocial branchiostoma? No. The Saint Bernard? No. The salmon that has a sick loved one? Neither.
Oh yes, from time to time, there is A Wonder Woman or a Thor! I know one, mother of two children; She went to night school, Found an internship, and she succeeded. Her husband asked her for a divorce, And the work she has is not enough for her to live alone. So many sacrifices! So many stories!
What about the competence, willingness and ability in all this?
Yes, to the competency-based tests when recruiting, Yes, to universal basic income, To give security to the citizens, And flexibility in the workplace.
