La revanche des ilotes

A l'instar des hilotes, ces populations grecques de Laconie et de Messenie qui étant asservies aux Spartiates ne jouissaient - comme les serfs du Moyen Age - d'aucun droit ni d'aucune reconnaissance, les exclus de la société civile, aujourd'hui, sont les nouveaux ilotes de la démocratie. N'étant pas concernés par le fonctionnement des institutions de la République, tous ces laissés pour compte de notre communauté nationale vont grossir le premier parti de France, celui des abstentionnistes. Car s'ils ne figurent pas sur les listes électorales, ils refusent de se déplacer pour mettre un bul...

Body: 

Racism is an insidious evil. It's born of experience, then nurtured by undereducation, insecurity and isolation. It can infiltrate any society and metastasise without the existence of a single racist. Like everything else in this mundane existence, racism begins with belief (thought). Racism isn't related to classism, nor is it dependent on station in life. Racism flourishes in the hearts and minds of 'poor white trash' as successfully as it does anywhere else. It's the white man who brought racism to tribalist/classist Africa where, previously, Darwinian rules of survival had been decisive....

Not only intriguing, this region of West Asia is also eventful, globally decisive, and characteristically dramatic. So, for example, it is here in this very valley of two rivers that the world’s most ancient civilisations are known to have emerged, older than the Egyptian, Indus, and Chinese civilisations.
