Le discours d’ @EmmanuelMacron mérite une attention soutenue pour qui s’intéresse à l’histoire comparée des Etats-Unis et de la France, de la mémoire et de l’histoire.

J’ai apprécié que le président souligne le poids des stéréotypes (coloniaux) « endossés » mais « détournés » par #JosephineBaker
En revanche cette idée baroque selon laquelle affirmer son identité (de femme noire en l’occurrence) pourrait écarter de l’universalisme républicain est assez affligeante.

DISSONANCE COGNITIVE

- Les médias se découvrent une soudaine passion pour l'antifascisme et l'antiracisme qu'ils salissent le reste du temps -

#JosephineBaker #Panthéon Image
Joséphine Baker était une artiste afro-américaine : militante antiraciste pendant toute sa vie, résistante antifasciste sous l'occupation, anti-impérialiste durant la guerre froide, et bissexuelle. Dans une pure stratégie de com, #Macron la fait entrer ce jour au Panthéon.
Pourtant, les médias et la classe dominante font tout pour détruire chaque jour les luttes antiracistes et antifascistes. Depuis des années, le mot «antifa» est devenu une quasi-insulte dans le discours dominant.

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Pantheon🏛️

(1/8) Located in #Rome, Italy, the Pantheon is arguably the best surviving example of Imperial #Roman architecture. Richly decorated with Corinthian columns and a variety of coloured marble, it is truly a remarkable site.

#History #Classics
(2/8) Originally constructed during the reign of the emperor Augustus under the patronage of Marcus Agrippa, the current temple is actually a reconstruction undertaken by Trajan and Hadrian following an earthquake. Finished in 126CE, the original inscription was retained:
(3/8) "M·AGRIPPA·L·F·COS·TERTIVM·FECIT"

"M[arcus] Agrippa L[ucii] f[ilius] co[n]s[ul] tertium fecit"

"Marcus Agrippa, son of Lucius, made [this building] when consul for the third time."

And since I’m on the topic of #equinox , let’s talk about the #Pantheon here in #Rome - have you ever heard of helioarchitecure? Because it’s really cool. #talesofatourguide

🍂 First day of autumn - the autumn equinox is here!

🌕It is the equilibrium of day and night
🍂2/? -and this represents the light and darkness in our lives. The long summer nights have passed and we are now in a season of transition.

🏛What does this have to do with the Pantheon? It’s built according to helioarchitecture; architecture following the sun or its placements
3/?🌱Mainly the spring was considered as a safe reference to start certain agricultural works; so many days after the equinox, for example, some plants had to be pruned; after so many days, certain seeds had to be sown, and so on.

📅On the other hand, the equinoxes allowed to -

Constat amusé : la recherche d'images #Google sur le mot #Armistice donne ceci (image ci-dessous). L'occasion de revenir sur certains points en #EMI, notamment la méthode de recherche et ce qui entre en jeu dans les résultats.

En ce 11 nov, je voulais vous parler des morts de la guerre.

Maudite soit la guerre

#Armistice

monument de Saint-Martin-d'Estréaux
1)1,4 millions de poilus français ont trouvé la mort sur les champs de bataille.

10 millions de morts en Europe.

Une véritable boucherie
2)La difficulté pour les familles étaient que bcp n’avaient pas la possibilité de se recueillir sur le corps de leur proche
Au début des combats, les soldats avaient été enterrés dans des fosses communes, en vrac
On envisagea même de les brûler
Tollé des familles et de l’Eglise

1-Today is the #Birth #Anniversary of quite possibly the most interesting #God in the #Sanatana #Pantheon - #Ganehsa!

For #AyurvedicAstrology and #VedicAstrology #Tradition in general – Ganesha is the central #God controlling all the #Planets.
2-The Puja timings at most places today in #India are between 11 and 1 during the day.

No tradition is as rich in #Mythical #Symbolism (that if properly meditated upon – can point to the reality) – as the Vedic Tradition.
3-According to the #Vedic Traditions of #Yoga, #Vastu, #Ayurveda and #Jyotish

..the following are the #Metaphors and #Allegories associated with #Ganesha
