There are two things that Europeans are busy with today: cutting down trees and driving away migrants. It is quite possible that we cut trees to better see the migrants arrive. Tree or migrant, the figure is the same. It is the figure of/for what is disposable, of what counts for nothing: there ten hectares cut down, there twenty people drowned, that is to say, nothing. Migrants and trees are not just convenient arguments to public opinion. Any policy that does not take into account the brutalization of society and climate change is a palinody. But any policy aimed at relativising what is happening to us in anthropological and ecological terms is a crime.
