Europe 1

Europe 1

Neither a satire or provocative. Michel Houellebecq has long said Saturday its new controversial novel, “Submission” in which he imagines a France led by the head of a Muslim party. According to the writer, this “is a likely evolution,” he said in an interview with the journalist from France Culture Sylvain Bourmeau, published Saturday in English in the American literary magazine Paris Review, online in the German newspaper Die Welt and French on the blog of journalist hosted by Mediapart

& gt;. & gt; ALSO – Michel Houellebecq makes political fiction in his new novel

“Things not fundamentally false” . “Submission” begins at the end of the second term of Francois Hollande in France in 2022. In a fractured political system, the Muslim Brotherhood (the author invented party) beat Le Pen in the second round of presidential elections as a front Republican. The new head of state, Mohammed Ben Abbes, appoint Bayrou prime minister. It is a political implosion without revolution, apparently accepted by the majority. But which derives a radical change of manners. Patriarchy, polygamy, veiling, the women return home

“I conduct an acceleration of history but, no, I can not say that it is a provocation to the extent that I do not say things that I think fundamentally false, just to piss. I condense an evolution in my opinion likely, “says the writer about his 6th novel, to be published Wednesday by Flammarion and fired 150,000 copies. “I tried to put myself in the place of a Muslim, and I realized that they were actually in a completely schizophrenic situation. What could be a Muslim who wants to vote? It is not represented at all. It would be wrong to say that it is a religion that has no political consequences (…). So, in my opinion a Muslim party is an idea that is required, “he said.

“The Qur’an is better than I thought” . The writer, who said in 2001 “the most stupid religion is still Islam” ?, however, seems to have revised his judgment. “The Koran is better than I thought, now that I read it,” says Houellebecq, concluding that “the jihadists are bad Muslims.” The writer, who sees his book as “fiction”, a bit like a “thriller”, denies having wanted to publish a try. But “I do not believe that a company can hold no religion,” he says anyway. In this framework, and imagine a society in France Catholics and Muslims could reach agreement. Even see him die a philosophy of the Enlightenment, he now outdated.

“There is a destruction of the outcome philosophy of the Enlightenment, which has no meaning for anyone, or very few people. Catholicism he is doing quite well. I maintain quite positively that an agreement between Catholics and Muslims is possible, it has already seen. This can happen again, “he said in the interview .

A book that divides . For weeks, literary critics and intellectuals questioned the new French writer’s book and its final goal. New provocation? Ironic fable? First or second degree? Prediction which would threaten France? For the philosopher Alain Finkielkraut, Houellebecq “his eyes open and do not be intimidated by political correctness.” Point of view is not shared by everyone. This novel “will remain as a landmark in the history of ideas, which will mark the emergence -or the Return- theses of the extreme right in the high literature” it “knights ideas of the FN, or those of Eric Zemmour, in the heart of the intellectual elite, “wrote Saturday as the director of Libération, Laurent Joffrin.

The book is meant to appear Jan. 7 in bookstores. But it is already available in illegal downloading on the Internet.


By imagining a France led by a Muslim party, Michel … – South West


022, France elects new president. This is Mohammed Ben Abbes, leader of a Muslim party that unites the majority of votes. That is the starting point of “Submission”, the latest novel by Michel Houellebecq, released Wednesday in bookstores. A controversial book which the author denies any provocation.

For weeks, literary critics and intellectuals questioned the sixth novel by French writer alive the better known abroad. The same who, in 2001, said in 2001 “the most stupid religion is still Islam.”

For the first time, Michel Houellebecq who spoke in a long interview with a journalist from France Culture Sylvain Bourmeau, published Saturday in English in the American literary magazine Paris Review, online in the German newspaper Die Welt and French on the blog of journalist hosted by Mediapart.

“I conduct an acceleration of history but not I can not say that it is a provocation to the extent that I do not say things I think fundamentally false, just to piss. I condense an evolution in my opinion likely, “says the writer about his sixth novel, to be published Wednesday by Flammarion and fired at 150 000.

Prix ​​Goncourt in 2010 also recognizes “use the fact of fear.” “We do not know well what we are afraid, if identity or Muslims. Everything remains in the shadows.”

“Submission” starts at end of the second term of François Hollande, 2022 . In France the political system cracked, the Muslim Brotherhood (the author invented party) beat Le Pen in the second round of presidential elections with a Republican front. The new head of state, Mohammed Ben Abbes, appoint Bayrou prime minister. This is a political implosion without revolution, apparently accepted by the majority.

Assuming that “Muslims were able to agree among themselves (…), it certainly would take decades “so that they come to power in France, concedes the author.

” I tried to put myself in the place of a Muslim, and I’ve realized that they were actually in a completely schizophrenic situation. “

” What could be a Muslim who wants to vote? It is not represented at all. It would be wrong to say that it is a religion that has no political consequences (…). So, in my opinion a Muslim party is an idea that is required, “he Assen .

Having long lived in Ireland, Houellebecq said he was struck “huge changes” in France and West. “It’s one of the reasons that led me to write” this book. But above all, “I had the impression of being an atheist and there I really do not know.”

At first, he says, “the title was Conversion “. The narrator, a specialist university teacher Huysmans who converts to Islam to keep his job and the erotic appeal of polygamy, “was converted to Catholicism.”

” The Qur’an is better than I thought, now that I read “ adds Houellebecq, concluding that ” jihadists are bad Muslims. “

“I’m not an intellectual. I’m not taking sides. I am not defending any regime,” he said again, saying that “Islamophobia is not a kind of racism.”

In the novel, President Ben Abbes is presented as a moderate Muslim “who defends values.” It will be in the book, patriarchy, polygamy, veiling, the women return home, the end of freedom of conscience and conversion to Islam …


Houellebecq disclaims any provocation or satire in submission – BBC

The writer is expressed for the first time in the literary magazine Paris Review about his sixth novel Submit 7 January appearing in Flammarion. He denies any “satire”, while the book portrays a France led by a Muslim party.

Michel Houellebecq is still there where it is least expected. While his sixth novel Submission appears in bookstores on January 7 (but is already available on the Net), the writer out of the wood with an interview with Sylvain Bourmeau published in the literary journal in English Paris Review .

The author admits to “use the fact of fear” in his novel Submit , but will defend any “provocation” or “satire” in this political fiction where the leader of a Muslim party took power in France: it is an “acceleration of history,” he says. “I conduct an acceleration of history but, no, I can not say that it is a provocation to the extent that I do not say things that I think fundamentally false, just to annoy. I condense an evolution in my opinion likely, “says Houellebecq in this long interview conducted by journalist CultureSylvain Bourmeau France, published Saturday in English in the US quarterly literary journal.

This is the first interview granted by the author about submission, his sixth novel to be published Wednesday by Flammarion. Assuming that “Muslims were able to agree among themselves (…), it would certainly take decades” for they come to power in France, the author concedes. Having long lived in Ireland, Houellebecq said he was struck “huge changes” recorded in France and the West. “It’s one of the reasons that led me to write” this book, he explains further.

This book is a satire? I Do Not. Partially, it is a satire of political journalists at most, a little bit of politicians also really. The main characters, no. “But Houellebecq acknowledges play on fear. “I use the fact of fear. In fact, we do not know well what we are afraid, if identity or Muslims. Everything remains in the shadows. “

” I tried to put myself in the place of a Muslim, and I realized that they were actually in a totally schizophrenic position ” Houellebecq continues. “What could be a Muslim who wants to vote? It is not represented at all. It would be wrong to say that it is a religion that has no political consequences (…). So, in my opinion a Muslim party is an idea that is needed, “he says.

In 2001, with the release of his novel Platform is remembered interrogates the magazine Read , Houellebecq had said: “The religion most con is still Islam. When you read the Quran, it collapsed … collapsed! “The controversy was so inflamed. Le Figaro , the author reiterated his words: “Reading the Quran is a disgusting thing. When Islam was born, it is distinguished by its desire to submit the world. His nature is to be submitted. It is a warlike religion, intolerant, which makes people unhappy. “

Fourteen years later, the word submission has become the title of the new novel by Michel Houellebecq, who as usual been much ink even before its release.

Legion of Honor: Piketty criticizes the action “catastrophic” this … – Le Parisien

02 Jan 2015, 7:04 p.m. |. Update: 02 Jan 2015, 7:37 p.m.

. Thomas Piketty assures: whether with this government he criticizes or another, he would have refused the same way to receive the Legion of Honour. The French economist agreed to clarify the World motivations.

On the same subject

“I have always found this story Legion of honor was completely outdated. This way of deciding which is the small group of honorable citizens whose signal merits should be recognized, it is a conception of the role of the state, the government, which seems totally outdated, “said the author of the best -seller “Capital in the Twenty-First Century.”

On Thursday, he told AFP that “not thought to be the role of government to decide who is honorable.” “It’s a shame they have not contacted me before, it would have avoided all pataquès,” he told Le Monde. “They seem not to be happy that I react on January 1,” he noted, adding, “I think it’s inflated by this government did not even ask me before, so that they can legitimately doubt that I did not particularly want to be decorated by them. “

” No need for a Legion of Honour to say or write “

The Secretary of State for State reform and simplification Thierry Mandon has estimated Friday on BFM TV and RMC that this action was not motivated by “humility” while Axelle Lemaire, Secretary of State for the Digital regretted on France Inter “the way.” The Minister of Agriculture, Stéphane Le Foll, spokesman of the government, he distinguished the researcher, “who is in his office, which makes calculations, which has the responsibility an intellectual approach” and the officials responsible for “policy, which is facing the reality.”

Still, the economist, whose book to the huge international impact is to demonstrate that without political intervention through taxation, growth rather hollow it smoothes the inequalities of wealth is almost from the beginning very critical vis-à-vis the executive, he reminded the evening daily.

“The action (government) in the last two years has been catastrophic, and I did not need a Legion of Honour to say or to write, “he said. Thomas Piketty, who had called for a vote for Francois Hollande, particularly regrets that the president buried major tax reform projects largely inspired by his ideas. He also criticized the “hypocrisy” on the European stage.

The Legion of Honour in 5 questions – The World

Le Monde | • Updated | By

Thomas Piketty, economist at the National Assembly, on 13 March.

The economist Thomas Piketty broke Thursday 1 st January the routine of traditional promotion beginning of the year the Legion of Honour by refusing his appointment as a knight, saying not “The role of a government to decide who is honorable” .

A refusal by no means new, has again placed the institution Bicentennial under the spotlight … and questions

Read the summary. Modiano, and Tirole Mimie Mathy in promoting the Legion of Honor

No, as already explained Rue89 in 2009: it is impossible to be a candidate for a degree of the Legion of Honour. This is a third party who must provide your name.

  • Or a minister, which usually receives proposals prefects, elected or associations (this is the case for Thomas Piketty, whose name was proposed by Geneviève Fioraso, Secretary of State for Higher Education and Research)

  • Either 50 citizens, through the citizens’ initiative procedure introduced in 2008

Through these procedures, nearly 4000 cases are made each year and then reviewed by the Council of the Order of the Legion of Honour, which then selects some 3000 winners before the final approval of the president, who signed the decrees of his hand.

Join the discussion: Should we necessarily accept the Legion of Honor

2 . Can we refuse?

Yes. In general, to avoid a diplomatic incident, decorated potentials are notified in advance. This was not the case for Thomas Piketty, which has not been notified, as indicated by the rue de Grenelle. Its name therefore appears in the decrees published the 1 st January Official Journal

Read also our decryption. Therefore, the Piketty book is a success in the US

It is not so far awarded against his will. To enter officially in the order of the Legion of Honour, it must indeed be physically hand decoration. – A ceremony in which the economist should refuse to participate

3 . By what criteria can we get it?

The Order of the Legion says in its code that the reward decoration “eminent merits acquired in service of the nation either civil basis or under arms “, recognizing that there is no strict definition or exhaustive list of such merits. “This is the Bar Council’s mission to judge, from career elements given to him by law and jurisprudence” , says the institution.

To be decorated, it is better in any case have French nationality (foreigners can be distinguished if they have rendered service to France or hold important positions, but are not full members of the institution), accumulate at least twenty years of activity (except in exceptional cases, such as sports or military exploit), have a clean criminal record and “good moral character” (an investigation is being conducted on this plan before each assignment).

Contrary to popular belief, there is less of Legionnaires before. Created by Napoleon in 1802, the Order has seen the number of its members explode with the great military conflicts of the XX th century. It has experienced up to 300 000 members in 1962. As told the magazine in 2012 Charles de Gaulle then decided to take action to prevent the decoration is hackneyed. A quota of 125 000 live legionnaires is then fixed and a new design (the National Order of Merit) is created as a consolation prize.

The number of legionnaires life is nearly stable for ten years: it now is around 92,000

4 .. What advantages does it give?

First, one can of course be decorating the red ribbon in his buttonhole, like 92,000 other decorated and reveal his rank after signing in official papers.

Then you can join the company of the members of the Legion of Honour, a network of 55 000 members that provides mission is “to contribute prestige of the National Order of the Legion of Honour and contribute to the promotion of the values ​​and culture of France in the country and abroad “.

Unlike some rumors, the Legion of Honour does not make money, instead. As Francetvinfo recalls decorated must pay since 2003 Chancery Rights (20.28 euros for a simple knight to 101.38 euros for the Grand Cross) for the shipment of their degree. They must also buy their decoration from a specialist jeweler or coin Paris (75 euros for the reduced model, 180 euros for the standard design and up to 990 euros for the Grand Cross of plate).

Catalogue of decorations Monnaie de Paris.

What quickly engulf the lean treatment offered by the institution to its members. The “History symbolic heritage sum” – from 6.10 euros a year for the knights and 36.59 euros for the Grand Cross – is often not even claimed by the embellished ( or donated to support the company of members of the Legion of Honour, to help the legionaries in need, says Express ).

Enter the family the Legion of Honour also opens right to your female descendants (to the rear granddaughters) of APPLY in prestigious educational institution houses: Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Yvelines) for college and Saint-Denis (Seine-Saint-Denis) for high school and post-bac (BTS and preparatory classes). But acceptance is not automatic: in 2011, only 55 seats were available at the high school in Saint-Denis, nearly 400 applications, as reported in The

But. it is strictly forbidden to members of your entourage to display your five-pointed star: the illegal port decoration is punishable by one year imprisonment and 15,000 euros fine

Yes.. A legionnaire can be stripped of his decoration in case of a criminal conviction, forfeiture of French nationality or if “committed acts contrary to honor or likely to harm the interests of France” .

This is what happened to Maurice Papon, deposed in 1999 of the Commander Order of the Legion of Honour after his final conviction for a crime against humanity, because of his involvement in the deportation of Jews under the Vichy regime. Despite protests, the former minister, however, continued to wear the decoration in his button down to his last home, as he was buried with his Legion of Honour.

Maurice Papon during his trial for & quot; complicity in crimes against humanity & quot; in Bordeaux, February 2, 1998.

This type of measurement is extremely rare. The last date of January 2013, when François Hollande has decided to exclude the order Jean-François Collin, a former member of the Organization of the Secret Army (OAS), decorated with two years earlier as a disabled war veteran in Algeria.


Controversy after the Piketty economist refused the Legion … – Les Echos

+ VIDEO The decision of the economist to refuse the Legion of Honour continues to generate critical reactions in government. This is the form of his refusal more than his decision that goes wrong


Article (s) associated (s)

In announcing he refused the Legion of Honour, for which his appointment as Knight had been proposed by the Secretary of State for Higher Education and Research, Geneviève Fioraso, Thomas Piketty is now causing a controversy stirred government.

On France Info Stépahne Le Foll, spokesman of the government, tried to deny the controversy by saying that “it’s her choice. He tries to give some advice, that’s part of the debate. I’ll leave it at that, “


This does not have prevent scratching economist emphasizing the difference between a scientist “who has interesting ideas but a researcher who is in his office, making calculations, which has a responsibility and an intellectual approach and the policy that is confronted with the reality. ”

A thinly veiled reference to what Thomas Piketty, which, for its refusal felt that it was not a government “to decide who is honorable” and above said “they would do well to focus on reviving growth in France and Europe.

A refusal is not motivated by humility for Thierry Mandon

For its part, on BFM TV, the Secretary of State for State Reform and Simplification, Thierry Mandon, regretted the refusal of Thomas Piketty and criticized the economist on these ideas, particularly in terms of tax reform.

“This reform is so complicated, it is so comprehensive, it has such effects redistribution between the French that if we did, there would be a widespread protest,” said -t he said


“The Legion of Honour distinguished national merit, that is to say, those of you who have contributed their civilian or military action at the national merit (…) It is the role of government and the Republic of deciding those deserving, “said Thierry mandon.

Before estimating that in the end this refusal was not motivated by humility. “There are two reasons for refusal two generally”, analyzed Thierry Mandon “humility, because we consider that others have earned more” or “a political reason.” “Thomas Piketty, I do not think that’s the first reason,” he slipped.

“You can refuse without necessarily saying in a dispatch “

As for the Secretary of State for the Digital Axelle Lemaire criticized the decision on the shape of Thomas Piketty” The decision is his. Following is the way to do it. We may refuse without necessarily saying in an AFP dispatch a January 1, “she said on France Inter.

” Maybe it confuses the fact that a Legion of Honour is a reward for merit which is recognized by the nation and not a membership to an economic policy of a government. “

A” poor “decision, Elie Cohen

Outside the government, critics are also needed . And certainly the most virulent from another economist. On Europe 1, Elie Cohen who initially felt that his colleague had “earned this Legion of honor outstanding contributions to academic work and world famous so he shines the French colors around the world. This imposes special responsibilities “.

He then slammed the way the decoration was denied. “He could have refused on principle, but denied making a critique of government action, I found it mediocre.”

” I just learned that I was proposed for the Legion of Honour. I refuse this appointment because I do not think it is the role of government to decide who is honorable, “said Thomas Piketty, adding,” They would do well to focus on reviving growth in France and Europe . “

His book, a publishing phenomenon in the United States

The Economist appears in the” promotion from January 1 “of the Legion of Honor, published in the Journal Official named knighted alongside another economist, Nobel Prize Jean Tirole, which made him an officer. Refusal to Thomas Piketty comes as his book, which aims to demonstrate the spontaneous tendency to ever greater concentration of wealth in a few hands, has sold 1.5 million copies.

translated into several languages, the book is especially a publishing phenomenon in the United States, where Thomas Piketty was received by advisers to President Barack Obama.

Regular criticism against Francois policy Holland

The reception of the book was warmer in France, especially from the government, despite very strong sales.

Thomas Piketty, a close time of the Socialist Party , regularly criticizes the policies of President Francois Hollande. Regrets, among others, the latter has buried his promise of a deep tax reform campaign in the direction of greater progressivity of the tax, a strongly supported by the Economist project.

As Thomas Piketty, they refused the Legion of Honor – The World

The composer Hector Berlioz, celebrated here by Russian artists in 1953 in Moscow at the 150 th anniversary of his birth, refused the Legion of Honor in 1864. He which the penniless state meant paying a Requiem Mass with the red ribbon instead of paying him the promised 3000 francs had then prevailed: “I do not care about your cross. Give me my money! “


Legion of Honor: Piketty did not know he was going to be promoted – Liberation

“I refuse” to the tune of “J’accuse”. On Thursday, the French economist Thomas Piketty, columnist for release , whose The Capital twenty-first century has sold 1.5 million copies, winning in many countries as a reference book on the growing inequality process – that our Minister of Public Accounts was finally read during the winter break – has told AFP “refuse [his] appointment” as a knight in the last class of the Legion of Honour, unveiled a few hours earlier.

“I do not think it is the role of government to decide who is honorable “, denounced Piketty, paraphrasing Edmond Maire, before inviting the executive to ” devote himself to reviving growth in France and Europe. “ Way to ridicule key Old Regime this vintage gratification which mingles annually legitimacy and incongruity, all at the discretion of a republican monarchy notabilisée. Contact by release , the person said to us from abroad that he knew nothing of the project of decorating the “Otherwise I would have said no right away!”

Before him, Marcel Ayme, Jacques Tardi …

In 1949, Marcel Ayme, sensed, had said in advance otherwise the President Vincent Auriol, famous reply: ” em> “In order not to have to come back, never to find myself in the case of having to refuse as adorable favors, which necessarily causes me great pain, I would ask that they voulussent well their Legion of Honour is the carrer in the train as well as their Elysian pleasures. “ Last year, the author of comic Jacques Tardi had also, past turn, on behalf of the “fierce attachment” to his “freedom of thought and creation” . Under Nicolas Sarkozy, former Minister Pierre Messmer, Henri Torre, had even refused indignantly that the proposal was made to him: “When you see that [Ziad] Takkiedine company and got it, I sorry but this is not my world. “

The Piketty refusal to let the powers that be hold a rosette in his buttonhole is not so surprising. The near-time socialist spheres, especially during the last presidential election, the economist, already recognized but not yet star, had argued for a tax reform with more progressive tax. But under the rule of the then budget minister Jérôme Cahuzac and without Hollande are finding fault, only a mini adjusting capital taxation on the labor painfully emerged. Far from the ambition of a few months earlier stands in TV shows by the candidate to the rose.

Therefore, the unofficial adviser, who also criticized the imbalance of supply policy initiated and too little demand support, became uncompromising prosecutor small sacrifices and major economic cowardice of the Dutch five years.
