Réduire les effets de la concurrence sur le coût et l'efficacité des réseaux de tout genre, tel pourrait être un item séduisant à ajouter aux programmes des candidats du moment ! A condition cependant d'être persuadé que ces effets sont plus délétères que bénéfiques.
Et là, les avis sont vraiment partagés ! La lecture du billet ci-dessous, ainsi que du fil de commentaires qui y est attaché vous apportera des éléments d'information et de réflexion de premier choix.
En espérant que le doute s'installe chez vous comme il a pénétré mon esprit. In fine, il me semble que s'il fallait trancher, on n'aurait pas d'autre option qu'en appeler à ses convictions d'ordre philosophique en matière de gouvernement des affaires politiques (de la cité).

 

English version
Reducing the effects of competition on cost and effectiveness of networks of all kinds could be an attractive item to add to the programs of the French presidential candidates! Provided, however, that these effects are more harmful than beneficial.
And then, opinions are really divided! Reading the post linked below, as well as the comment thread attached to it will give you pieces of information of first choice.
Hoping that doubt will grow in you as it shook my mind. Ultimately, I think that if we had to decide, there would be no other option than clinging on to philosophical convictions about politics (governement of the city).

Once again, a vibrant and instructive documentary!

People already fight for water. Tomorrow, no one knows how widespread conflicts generated by water disputes will be.

As a preventive measure, let's bend the curve toward acceptable futures: be aware, responsible and let's try to minimize our footprint over nature.

Fracking Could Work If Industry Would Come Clean

Fracking Could Work If Industry Would Come Clean | Curiosity, Awareness, Compassion and Diffusion | Scoop.it

A new independent study by the Energy Institute at the University of Texas, Austin, sees no direct link between shale gas extraction and groundwater contamination, but nevertheless asks for tougher controls and regulation of fracking practices.

 

Really? Who could give serious credit to that kind of article? I must admit that every point of view is to be listened in order to forge oneself an enlightened opinion. It's a compulsory condition to widen your mind. But...

 

Keep in mind that opposite interest may drive big companies miles away from everybody's daily and sustainable wellness!

Capitalism is evolving, but into what?

Capitalism is evolving, but into what? | Curiosity, Awareness, Compassion and Diffusion | Scoop.it
In this excerpt from "Standing on the Sun," Meyer and Kirby first show us why and how "capitalism is subject to change" and then ask us to consider a capitalism in which components such as competition and financial gain are no longer the core or...

 

For less than $20, you can grab a print of that essay. I'm considering ordering a copy... as I'm quite eager to discover where a simple but audacious 'shift in perspective' has led the co-authors.

 

Brutal seizures are always feared, and then fought in order to delay their unavoidable happening. Even for issues occuring at personal and/or nonsignificant levels, people tend to slightly distort existing models to make them match what they perceive in reality.

 

But, sometimes, you have to go far beyond, and start from scratch again. So, let alarm beacons light through our often glued static way of thinking. We'll get an opportunity to evolve.

"Enjoy your life, set your own goals, and be happy with it !"

This little mantra, if you make it yours, may change your entire life. I'm convinced that it embeds some seeds for freedom and openness.

No idealism, no false pragmatism, but only education and willingness!
I like that type of initiatives. Even if we can consider it a pis aller, such an organization aims at taking into account the actual strengths and weaknesses of existing people and structures, in order to make them match global sustainability concerns.
At the present time, I think it's the best way to mix paradoxical paradigms: progress through infinite development vs progress through best use of limited resources!

Gasland / Hydraulic fracturing

Gasland / Hydraulic fracturing | Curiosity, Awareness, Compassion and Diffusion | Scoop.it
The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States.

OK, nothing's really new with that...

Michael Moore has been followed by other talended people. Here you'll find some raw material to help starting a passionate investigation in the field of ecology.

How far are you willing to go with nature to find alternative energy resources? What does really matter in your life? What source of information are you more likely to rely on in order to elaborate a best-balanced opinion?

If you have not even heard of "fracing" yet, maybe you'd better have a look at http://www.propublica.org/special/hydraulic-fracturing-national first ;-)

And don't fool yourself: this issue (if you consider it an issue) is of worldwide class...

Brene Brown: The power of vulnerability

Brene Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love.

A must-see which I'm fond of. You'll be taught vulnerability is to be saught, grown, cherished, and even preserved. That way, each of us may live a plain life, in accordance with his/her personal aspirations, and let a chance to actually enjoy every single day and not suffer it.
