Sur fond de défiance des Français face aux politiques, sur fond d’une histoire politique qui s’essouffle, cet ouvrage s’intéresse à deux figures récurrentes de l. a. communique politique : los angeles vérité et l. a. transparence. Les personnalités politiques appellent et revendiquent l. a. vérité. À son arrivée au pouvoir, François Hollande a annoncé : « Mon devoir, c'est de dire l. a. vérité aux Français ».
Et pourtant, cette vérité cohabite avec tous les faits, avec le Gouvernement et l’opposition, et les affaires comme celles de Jérôme Cahuzac ou de Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Cet ouvrage entend démontrer l. a. prééminence de los angeles dialectique de l. a. vérité et du mensonge et le recours au mythe de l. a. vérité comme une arme du discours. Notre société est une société d’opinion et l. a. confusion entre vérité, opinion et réalité bat son plein. Cet essai veut démontrer, au-delà de cette confusion, que citer los angeles vérité c’est déjà une stratégie de prise de pouvoir et de transformation du monde. Désignation du bien et du mal, assimilation de soi à los angeles transparence et à l’innocence… los angeles généralisation des discours sur los angeles vérité nous montre l’impuissance de los angeles parole politique. Mais elle pourrait bien par twist of fate nous ramener aux temps de l’inquisition, où il est bien plus facile de cacher ses propres méfaits…

EXTRAITS

Vous êtes mal à l'aise face à l’invocation répétée de l. a. vérité dans les discours politiques ? Vérité et transparence sont désormais les premiers arguments advertising de chacun des partis politiques. Elles n’ont plus rien à voir avec les faits, avec le crossé des orateurs ou avec son comportement. Vérité et transparence n’ont même plus de rapport avec los angeles réalité. Elles sont devenues des tics de langages. los angeles classe politique est frappée par une nouvelle forme du syndrome de l. a. Tourette.
Quand un homme politique, dans son discours, prononce "Je vais vous dire los angeles vérité", il a déjà commencé à mettre en œuvre sa stratégie politique et ses éléments de langage. Il a déjà commencé à manipuler son auditoire.
Brandir los angeles vérité, c'est jouer los angeles carte de l'intensité morale, l. a. carte de l'incontestable. C'est une manière de prendre le pouvoir. l. a. vérité en politique est une tyrannie.
L’appel everlasting à l. a. vérité ne produit pas de vérité, mais un espace de parole où los angeles vérité perd toute sa valeur. l. a. politique post-vérité est un autre nom de l. a. propagande natural et easy.

Der junge Jonathan Gullible wird mit seinem Segelboot von einem schweren Sturm an das Ufer einer fremden Insel gespült. Zunächst überwältigt von der Schönheit der Insel muss er rasch feststellen, dass seine Begegnungen mit den seltsamen Bewohnern und ihren befremdlichen Angewohnheiten ein aufregendes und nicht ganz ungefährliches Abenteuer sind. Holzfäller bringen Bäume mit Knüppeln zum Umstürzen, Menschen laufen auf den Knien durch die Straßen und im Zoo sitzen Menschen vis-à-vis wilden Tieren hinter Gittern. Nagelneue Häuser stehen leer, obwohl Wohnungsmangel herrscht, Friseuren droht fürs Haareschneiden die Todesstrafe und Familien liefern ihre Großeltern gegen eine Prämie bei der Behörde ab. Die Menschen glauben an die Zauberkraft einer Traummaschine, kaufen begeistert Tickets für eine express, die sie um ihr Erspartes erleichtert und lassen ein Orakel für sie denken.

Der freundliche Junge stößt auf Misstrauen und Ablehnung, Ahnungslosigkeit, Furcht und Resignation. braveness und Eigeninitiative sind dagegen bei den Menschen rar. Nur sehr schwer gelingt es ihm, auf der Insel Fuß zu fassen und Freunde zu finden. Erst mit der Zeit bemerkt Jonathan, dass nicht die Menschen auf der Insel sonderbar sind, sondern die Gesetze und Kontrollen des dort herrschenden Hohen premiums. Die haben tiefe Spuren bei den Inselbewohnern hinterlassen und machen vielen das Leben zur Hölle. Als es ihm doch noch gelingt, die Insel in Richtung Heimat zu verlassen, hat er begriffen, wie wichtig Freiheit und Eigenverantwortung für die Freude am Leben sind.
