Caméras parlantes à Lunel dans l'Hérault : la police peut directement vous reprendre, via une caméra et un haut-parleur, si vous ne portez pas votre masque ou si vous ne ramassez pas vos crottes de chien... Quand les élus veulent faire plaisir à la police et ne savent plus dans quoi investir

Un espace public qui n'a plus rien de public car aux mains de la police. Les gadgets technologiques se multiplient, toujours plus infantilisants et intrusifs, pour une gestion froide et surveillée de la ville.

you are a lot like me: you’re an idiot. (I mean this in the nicest possible way.) You’re dumb. You’re less informed than you think you are. You’re more biased than you think you are. You are more guilty of the things you judge other people for than you know. Speaking of which, you are more judgmental than you know. You are less deliberate than you realize and also less deliberate than other people think you are. Most of the things that you do, you just do unthinkingly.
