From NovLangue de pute we linked the following found on The Stalker blog:
“La sociologie n’a pas de chance / Sociology is hopeless”
Jean-Gerard Lapacherie observes our sick modernity. I know him to tell the truth rather indirectly, not only through his many articles which he’s published in «Liberté» political reviews or in his analyses on the cleaned up «Liberty Vox» blog, did a superb job of dissecting the manipulated languange of the NLF. I thank him again for pointing out the broadly spun slogans heard dozens of times a day from journalists and howled by the uneducated imbeciles. End of text.
It is a word which often appears in the "equal opportunity law", known also as the "CPE". The law "fights", as of others fight. Dead on arrival, the hostile old virtues of France reappear in law. Admittedly, fighting never occurs in a vaccum. It is followed pronouncements of good and evil. Sometimes it is supports, sometimes it opposes. To «oppose» corresponds with countering incivility, promoting social cohesion, be against discrimination, and being for equality. «Cohesion» units what incivility separates, and equality restores what discrimination destroys. From a rhetorical point of view, the machine runs smoothly. With a call to arms the fight makes the law martial, and takes on the urgency of a war. The peace pipe will never be smoked again.
It is not entirely a "class struggle" or "the final showdown", but that could not feel too far off: a forthcoming law will team up the "proletarians" with the "transnationals" to become "mankind". It is even in the name of the "High Commission to Fight Discriminations and promote Equality" («Haute Autorité de Lutte contre les Discriminations et pour l’Égalité») or HALDE (sounds like DUMP), whose domain is to inforce the detail of the law and everything in it. The funny thing is that it’s been instituted to carry out the fight, invent or identify the enemy, decide where the fight will take place, and to pick the winner. The battlefield is a boring sort of paddock. "the HALDE identifies and disemminates the good practices and the experiments in fighting discriminations in all branches of industry" and "makes recommendations to the government, Parliament, and public authorities to fight discriminations in order to improve the language of the law, and advance the principle of equality and the state of related law".
In Iran, in 1979, one of the first decisions made by Khomeini was to create a «Commission for the Prohibition of Vice and Promotion of Virtue». The Monster has crossed many borders to reach France. The HALDE is the Empire of the Good. The only statement they make is to reverse Fascism and stop racism. It is to stop the Evil and provide all the virute you can want. The "equal opportunity law" is worded with the same bad faith, full of statements that have the consistency of batter. In South Africa or the United States discrimination was real, tangible, visible, were in the law, becoming horrifying realities. This it’s taken to Morocco, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, or elsewhere, trying to take the same fight and countering discrimination where they are a) legal and b) real, in spite of what one sees in France - or more precisely anything descriminatory in France which is ignored. A discriminatory law, if there were only one of them, would be an unlawful - ipso facto. Discrimination is banned by the Declaration of 1789 and prohibited in the Constitution of the République.
They are fictitious, and yet the well off world protests these fictions, not against these fictitious and untrue representations, but against ghosts which are imagined to be real. Social sciences concocted this goodwill. In the racial fighting which that they seek to cause any low blow is allowed. Discrimination would remain limited to the social novel, the fairy tale, or better yet in "A Thousand and One Nights," if our fabulists only intended to divert the reader. But they work towards another goal which is to pervert and and change policies. It is necessary that France is demeaned, and that is why it’s important for them to call it racist or say that it’s founded on discrimination.
Thus the French and men have to remain ill though of and thrown into the dustbin of History (with a captial H). Because insinuated in these "Thousand and One Nights" of Paris, the apartheid of France is no different than that of white South Africa. Thus the shame is kept alive in the hexagon. The French are stigmatized to restore something they were convinced that they caused. The way this joke goes, it’s the incivility which the law fights, that justifies fictitious discrimination. Before the name civilization was not manufactured at the XVIIIe century by Mirabeau, «the Friend of Man» was the word «civility» was the operative term. Preceded by «without», it applied to natives of the West Indies, denying that they had a soul. Even in the title of the law, the words «equal opportunity» reveal the direction of this text. Luck is what defines who is to be brought down.
It concerns fate and luck alone. To put equality in it, (i.e. of the law or right) is as useless as to try to make the sun shine at midnight or to reach the moon by climbing a rope. The Lotto has as a slogan "Every winner tried their luck". Similarly on the equal opportunity law "everyone who will profit from it will profit from the fight that it declared". Bad luck, risk, and misfortune, are all made unlawful. Bear in mind that it used to be said that a law either liberated or repressed.
By 2006 the number of contracts has multiplied: new hires, junior trainee, parental conditions, pre-professionnalisation... Since it is a social measure in law, the contract is everywhere: everything is contractual, even the family. Like a perpetual insurance policy it’s signed with your eyes closed. One is unaware of the hidden clauses. The spirit of the law was something that one once could have believed in. In equal opportunity, it comes straight of the sociology textbook.
The new Holy Spirit does not speak an earthly language anymore, but the language of sociology. Fight, contract, discrimination, social cohesion, incivility, citizen… All brought to you by the code of law. The law was supposed to prevent by dictat the repetition of the riots last autumn, but caused new riots in the our city centers. It causes what it was supposed to prevent. Instead of extinguishing the fires, it stoked them. It explains the significance of the law: it’s just a preoccupation of the School of the High Studies in Social Sciences. This institution is in the heart of sociocentric discrimination, incivility, contractual, egalitarian, fighter, etc. The director opened the doors to let the anti-CPE militants have places to plan.
Immediately, the debates were shouted down - doors were broken down, goods were stolen or destroyed, and lecture halls were taken over by squatters. For more than thirty years, social sciences have thrown sociological oil on the social fire. It wasn’t capitalism that they set ablaze, it was their own institutions.
You have to expect this. If parents forbid their children to play with matches, it is not on a whim, but by experiment. On television sociologists were seen moving computers to preserve their beloved research tools. It also leaked out that they had asked the riot police to get their research materials out of the buildings that they invited the rioters into. The irony is that the School of the High Studies in Social Sciences (EHESS) is the very source of the effort to impose sociology on the arts, language, literature, business, history, science, the law, and everything else. It threw the boomerang which came back to hit it square in the face. Already, an image of March 22, 1968 is evoked. The revolution in 2006 is not about a different tomorrow, nor the day after tomorrow. They admit to violating people’s sovereignty, but it’s been the rule for so long, that people don’t even notice it.
The agitators seem to hope to «bring on a change» , but right off the bat they return to Mom and Dad. The revolution, if there really is one, isn’t humilating business, but sociology. Sociology brough us this distorted reality. It is the old world of Count, Bourdieu, Durkheim, Touraine, etal, that the cat dragged in: the idols are broken, the statues are reversed, and their lies are exposed.
Fear not, comrades, the old guard of sociology is behind you ! The riots of the autumn were about welfare, 100% about welfare. Even the social panacea laws to attenuate them were destroyed by the same beast, and in the torrent of madness, the «beautiful people» rioted again. In 1956 and 1958 in exactly the same way, and to the anguish of many, the IVth Republic piled on the social measures in favor of Algerians to convince them that it was in their interest for Algeria to remain French. Without commissioning a single study, they drew the opposite conclusion : that welfare measures and sociological thought does not influence identity or is worth "being French for." Nor was its’ absence enough of a reason "not to be Algerian." The duct tape repair of sociology didn’t stick to the nation, the individual, or his identity.
In 2006, it hardly took two months to forget the lessons of last autumn’s riots.
