Note: between September 2012 and June 2014, I published more or less regularly, and sometimes with a sense of urgency, a micro-blog dedicated to 'current affairs', a collection of notes inspired by events with a global impact, whose sources where mostly in the press I was (and am still) reading. I wanted to build my own barrier against the flood, a 'dam' I might say, containing and disciplining the continuous stream of online news. This proved to be a futile attempt: if you do not want being drowned, you should not jump first; moreover, if you have to, you must know how to swim. As everyone has made the experience online, news gathering and sharing is a time-consuming activity. Even professionals who are paid to do this, journalists, find it an exhausting and disappointing job, and let too often themselves tempted to copy and paste unchecked informations because they are in a constant hurry to be the first to publish something before the competition. This blog I named 'Global World', and since I decided to stop using it, the best I could do was to archive it and put into a single note in this current blog of "Métamorphoses". From time to time you should still read I guess a post dedicated to 'current affairs', but in the wit of 'gonzo-journalism'. Let's say 'Global World' is one of the states of mind of the ongoing 'Metamorphosis' project.
Global World was published mostly through a Public Facebook Page and for just two articles in a Blogger blog. Both sources have been combined hereafter.

I find it quite significant I stopped publishing after that date, and this last post about the situation in Irak. I felt nausea for what was, and still is, happening there as well as in neighborhood Syria. The end of the blog does not imply the end of 'Global World' as I said at the beginning of this post. It is just a question of reshuffling the inputs and the outputs.
There are multiple ways to testify against inhumanity and fight evil.
