LUTTER CONTRE LE HARCÈLEMENT MORAL

Les médias ne sont pas neutres: les journalistes sont liés à la direction par un lien de subordination s'ils sont salariés, et par des contrats dans le cas contraire. A leur tour, les dirigeants sont liés au monde politique et aux "lobbies" financiers. Aujourd'hui, en France, une vraie chape de plomb pèse sur l'information. Les affaires graves et les vraies critiques sont étouffées dans la plupart des cas. Le harcèlement professionnel est un très grave problème de société, son analyse permet de comprendre la profondeur du gouffre qui nous menace. Aussi, toute réflexion indépendante à ce sujet est impitoyablement étouffée par le système et ses "experts" officiels. La "loi contre le harcèlement" que le monde politique nous prépare n'est pas une bonne loi. Mais qui "aura le droit" de le dire?

QU' EST- CE QUE LE HARCÈLEMENT AU TRAVAIL ?

Il s'agit d'un enchaînement, sur une assez longue période, de propos et d'agissements hostiles exprimés ou manifestés par une ou plusieurs personnes envers une tierce personne, ceci au moins une fois par semaine.
Les agissements relevant du harcèlement visent à :
Empêcher la personne de s'exprimer
  L'isoler 
  La déconsidérer auprès de ses collègues 
  La discréditer dans ses compétences et activités professionnelles 
  Lui retirer ses outils, ressources, budgets….. de travail 
Porter atteinte à sa situation économique 
  Porter atteinte à sa santé physique

LES CONSÉQUENCES DU HARCÈLEMENT AU TRAVAIL 
  • POUR LA PERSONNE

Les personnes exposées à des tensions spécifiques sur leur lieu de travail font état d'un ensemble de symptômes :
- pleurs, déprime
- troubles de la mémoire
- abattement
- irritabilité, agitation
- perte d’intérêt
- isolement
- perte de confiance et d’estime en soi
- nausées
- difficultés à s’endormir
- troubles gastriques
- mal de dos, de nuque
- difficultés de respiration
- crises de sueur
- vertiges, tremblements
L'exposition prolongée aux attaques du harcèlement va entraîner une atteinte parfois irréversible (santé physique et psychique, perte d'emploi, déstabilisation familiale, exclusion sociale) Certains se suicident pour y mettre fin.

  • POUR L’ ENTREPRISE 
Les coûts cumulés d’un mauvais climat de travail sont énormes pour l’entreprise :
- absentéisme
- perte de production
- baisse de niveau de qualité
- coût du travail supplémentaire
- fluctuations du personnel

AGAINST MENTAL HARRASSMENT
Like most workers, you have experienced occasional job-related troubles. Is your employer treating you fairly or legally? You may be concerned about workplace discrimination, threads, attempts to weak your mental and physical health for nasty reasons…

CONSEQUENCES OF HARRASMENT AT WORK
  • FOR THE VICTIM

You might be exposed to such nasty and dangerous consequences:
- cries, loneliness
- memory troubles
- despair
- agitation
- loss of interest
- isolation
- you don't trust in yourself anymore, doubts
- stomach troubles
- bad sleep
- back and neck pains
- breath difficulties
- sweat
- vertogo, tremblings

A too long exposition to harrassment can cause fatal troubles(physical and mental health, job loss, family destruction, social exclusion). Some people think their only way to be free from that mental terrorism is suicide.

  • FOR THE FIRM
The atmosphere can be very nasty, workers feel fears or rage:
- some don't go to work as regularily as they did before
- loss of production
- loss of quality
- staff fluctuations
- bad public'social' image

A site will tell you how to defend and protect you from that 'mental' terrorismr: http://www.nolo.com

 

DEATH OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Despite the year-end noise, music industry fading away, This is the time of year when the music industry pats itself on the back. Journalists, radio stations and others are getting pressure from labels to pick their best albums of the year. The Grammy nominations are coming up soon. Christmas gives the music industry the best sales of the year.
It makes for a good but temporary buzz. This year, many in the industry know the party is just about to end. A high-powered player in the music industry for the past quarter century recently remarked privately that "the music industry is over."
Not completely over, but certainly over as we know it.
People are going to still listen to music and go to concerts, but everyone has finally realized - way too late - that the old way really isn't going to work, no matter how hard the industry tries to resist change.
For many fans, the response to this is "Duh." Downloading and burning CDs has been a way of life for a generation of fans. And with sales slumping, it's finally dawned on the industry that no amount of bullying or bluster is going to make it go away. The old world is gone.
The industry has tried to ignore downloading. Then it tried to quash downloading. This year it tried copy-protection, which doesn't work. In advance releases sent to the media and radio stations, it has tried putting digital watermarks on the CDs to keep them from leaking on the Internet. Others have gone more low-tech; Epitaph Records sent out the new Nick Cave CD with a letter imploring the recipient to please not leak the disc. It just can't go on; it has finally reached critical mass. As noted here last week, concert ticket prices are starting to come back to Earth.
But this year it has finally dawned on the industry as a whole that the ship is sinking, and it's not about to stop.
The party already has ended for some; while the problems and layoffs of Qwest and United Airlines have dominated headlines, the record industry has quietly been "restructuring" even more - that is, laying off people, dropping artists, slashing rosters.
Downloading and CD burning has won. High ticket and CD prices have lost. By trying to maximize profits, the industry killed them.
CD releases have become like bad movies, the kind where they don't let reviewers see them in the hopes of getting at least one week's worth of good business. For CDs, the hit single pushed on radio becomes the equivalent of the movie trailer and commercials, revealing just the best part of the product. By the time you shell out your money, you've been had. The industry just hopes for a big hit in first-week sales before word-of-mouth reveals the disc to be a dog.
Oddly enough, Prince - widely ridiculed for turning his back on the record industry years ago - ends up looking damn near clairvoyant. He established an online music club; he's been releasing his own music and keeping the profits. Those who mocked him for breaking away a few years back would now kill to be in his position.
Radio programming has become overly formatted. Talk shows and morning news shows have become the new radio - the new place for performers to let the public know they have new music out there. Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, Delbert McClinton, Tom Petty, Peter Gabriel and more. Aerosmith's Steven Tyler is appearing on the Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire. Led Zeppelin, The Clash and The Who get high-profile audio exposure through automobile ads. The classic-rock programming inside Mervyn's and Michael's stores is better than what you hear on the radio.
Clear Channel has quietly put its concert division on the market, looking for interested buyers. The timing clearly isn't good. Word is out that Concerts West made another low-ball bid for House of Blues Concerts, which turned it down.
DVD audio and Surround Sound mixes are keeping audiophiles interested in the music scene, but the numbers are still tiny. They're small even for conventional music DVDs. Paul McCartney's Back in the U.S. DVD set a record for first-week sales of a music DVD - with sales of 61,000. As noted here a few weeks back, Spiderman sold 11 million its first week out.
This is where someone is supposed to come up with a brilliant solution. But there isn't one. All there is is an ugly winter lying ahead, and the certainty that by next year at this time, everything will be different. No one knows just how different.

TOTAL SYSTEM

Yuppy terrorInquietant : les grandes compagnies commerciales, en viennent peu à peu à exercer leur propre modes de contrôle sur ceux que l’on appelle désormais les « consommateurs », et participent à leur tour au progressif encerclement de la population, se faisant, parfois même, les complices de l’État dans sa tentation de surveillance et de contrôle global de la société. Notamment lorsque ces compagnies se font le vecteur, via la publicité et les mass media, d’une idéologie qui se voudrait libertaire, et qui fait l’apologie de cette société de consommation en tant qu’exemple ultime de civilisation de la Liberté. Cette croyance repose sur la thèse néo-libérale selon laquelle la liberté économique offrirait aux individus le choix de ce qui leur convient, selon leurs désirs réels ou suscités, leur personnalité propre, etc. Cette idéologie de la « personnalisation » est en réalité fondatrice d’une nouvelle société du « choix », par opposition à l’uniformité forcée qui règnerait dans les régimes totalitaires traditionnels (lire Gilles Lipovetsky, L’ère du vide) ; Chaque société a certes ses propres modes d’intégration et codes sociaux. Notre société est une société dans laquelle la condition d’intégration est la possession, et le critère de réussite sociale est l'accumulation. Dans laquelle fortune fait force de vertu, dans laquelle chacun est jugé non pas sur ses qualités humaines, mais bien en grande partie sur ses biens matériels, son capital, motif de honte ou de fierté sociale par excellence. Dès lors, « choix » ne signifie pas « liberté », lorsqu’il devient impossible de ne pas acheter et de ne pas choisir. Entre un Tee-Shirt Z et un Tee-Shirt W, je dois de toutes façons choisir un Tee-Shirt ; entre un presse-purée X ou un presse-purée Y, je dois de toute façon choisir un presse-purée. Ces "choix" ne sont pas motivés par une vision rationnelle de leur utilité. C'est la société qui m'y contraint -non pas par la force, mais par la pression sociale, pression sociale alimentée par la publicité et les médias. Sans quoi je suis voué à l’obsolescence, à la ringardise, etc., autant de maux qui me condamnent à la moquerie et, plus ou moins, participent de ma mise au ban de la société. Des condamnations sociales, en somme, mais qui ne sont certes pas moins dissuasives que des condamnations pénales. Notre civilisation du Progrès nous oblige ainsi à la consommation éternelle, ne serait-ce que pour permettre le renouvellement continu de nos biens auquel elle nous condamne. C'est là une forme de totlitarisme, ou même de terrorisme, qui nous force par la peur à commettre des achats que nous n'aurions sans doute pas fait. Un terrorisme de la consommation et du Progrès obligatoire, de la "mise à jour", de la modernisation. Où est la liberté des individus lorsque leur énergie est consacrée à la satisfaction de besoins superflus, à la fabrication et à l’achat de gadgets ? Les individus se trouvent enfermés dans la société de consommation sans aucune échappatoire, sinon la marginalité, qui est la pire des condamnations sociale. Notre société est une société où les individus n’ont pas le choix. Une société libertaire en apparence, totalitaire en fait. Voilà ce qui peut-être nous guette. SAMI.

No good news: big companies exert their own control on what is called "consumers", and from their untouchable big towers they unchain populations, being even complices of the government in its temptation to get total control. Notably when these companies are vector,via advertisements and mass medias, of an ideology that would insure "democracy", and that makes apology of this consumer's system as an ultimate civilization example of freedom. This belief is based on the néo-liberalist thesis saying that the economic liberty would offer to individuals the choice of what they want and what they need, according to real desires and personality. This ideology of "personnalisation" is in reality pretennding to create a new world of "choice", by opposition to the forced uniformity of facism or traditional systems. Each society has its own integration system and its own social codes. Our societty (occidental) is a world in which the integration's condition is possession and in which the social success criterion is accumulation and performances. In which fortune is a force, and everyone is judged not on his human qualities, but largely on his material possessions, his capital, motive of shame or even social pride. But choice does not mean freedom, when it becomes impossible not to buy and not to choose.Between a "Z" Tee-Shirt and a "W" Tee-Shirt, I have to choose a Tee-Shirt; between a "X" machine or a "Y" machine, I have to choose a machine… These "choices" are not motivated by a rational vision of their usefulness. It's business companies (design agnecies, business concils, distributors and so on…) that push the masses, and they can use social pressure created by themselves, social pressure itself pushed by advertisements and medias. If I don't follow the "mainstream", I am "out" or sick, or junk… such judgements, prononced or not, condamning me to the mockery and throwing me away from society, is a machine of death. Social condemnations are not less dissuasive than penal condemnations. Our civilization of "Progress" promise an "eternal consumption". This is a kind of totlitarism, or even of terrorism, that forces populations by the fear to commit purchases that we would probably not do. An terrorism of consumption, an eternal "update" of our brains, bodies and possessions. This is "modernization". Where is freedom, for individuals using, wasting their energy to get and update superfluous needs, to devote their life for manufacture and gadgets? People are found enclosed into a consumption's society without any exit, the only - and final - exit being marginality, which is the worse social condemnation. Our society is a world where individuals do not have choice. A world of fake freedom. The democratic system is facist in fact. Here is the "new version" we are buying in perfect consciousness. We are voting for dictators who prepare the "best total system". Great irony of history…

MAGAZINE : COMBAT, la presse d'état insolente existe toujours !

Revue CombatCombat est un magazine édité avec l'aide du Ministère de l'emploi et de la solidarié de la Mission interministerielle de lutte contre la drogue et les toxicomanies et de Solidarité sida. Bref, un outil de communication officiel. Et pourtant, la seule lecture du N°28 de juin 2002 est édifiante : vous tenez entre les mains un outil de controverse puissant. Un brûllot dans lequel démonte le mauvais traitement médiatique du livre deThierry Meyssan, L'effroyable Impossture.Quelles preuves les journalistes disposent-ils pour lapider l'idée de la manipulation officielle autour de l'attentat ? Auraient-ils oublier dde saines lectures ciomme Le grand secret de Barjavel, qui dévoilait dèjà les effarantes possibilités des étatas prèts à sacrifier leurs propres petites mains ? Même offenssiveface à la torure en prison, et l'état se retrouve même complice de laisser d'odieux patrons exploiter les handicapés pour de la manutention. Sexualité et prostitution, l'idéologie pourrie du sport de haut nivea… des sujets à polémiques qui sont traité avec un véritable savoir-faire journalistique. Bien documenté,d'une lecture captivant e, voilci le genre de magazine qu'on aimerait voir faire de l'ombre à de la prétendue presse politico-sociale. Pourvue que ça dure !

Combat is a magazine edited with the assistance of the official health and solidarity Ministries (drug and Aids). Yes, this is an official communication tool. And nevertheless, the reading of #28 alone (June 2002) is quite a dream: you are holding in your hands a powerful controversial tool. Summary: the bad mediatic processing about the book of Thierry Meyssan, "The frightful Impossture", who pretends that the 11 september is an official manipulation.What journalists evidences have-they to throw away the idea of the official manipulation around the 11 september attack? What proof Ameraica has? Where are the plane's pieces, the deads and so on… Did they forget good readings like "The great secret" of Barjavel,book that already talked about the scaring possibilities of the governments which can sacrifice their own soldiers and servants? Same offenssive for the use of torure in prisons. The government is even found guilty to leave odious bosses exploiting paraplegics for manual tasks. Sexuality and prostitution, the nasty ideology of high level sport and other subjects to controversy are processed with a real journalistic know-how. Well documented, a captivating reading, here is the kind of magazine that one would like to see making the shade to the so-called politico-social press.The site: http://www.vih.org/combat/
