Why a page dedicated to politics? Well, I try to actively participate
in the democratical life of the society I live in (France, Europe), to
make my opinion by looking carefully at some political questions, and
contribute to some debates with my ideas.
Recently, i investigated what the World
Trade Organization actually does, especially in the framework of
the G.A.T.S. (General Agreement on Trade
and Services). It deals with and obviously has a major influence on
many human activities (education, health, transportation, etc). I was
scared by the difficulty to gather precise information and by the
complexity of this agreement. So how can a civilian know if it is
good for the society or not? if it agrees with what he thinks the
society should be?
After getting this information, i condensed it in a summary and made a
web site to objectively inform my fellow citizens (yes, it might be
you) about what the G.A.T.S. is. In a second (and well delimited) part
of this site, I wrote some comments that reflect my personal opinion.
Look at it by yourself:
It is in French; i would like to make an English, a German and/or a
Spanish version of it, but have little time to do it at the moment.
May be the comments of interested readers will help me to find it.
