By Jean-Paul Brighelli
Extrait de l. a. préface de Bernard Lecherbonnier :
«Crétin !»... J'ai toujours aimé cette invective - à peine une insulte - définitive et affectueuse. Oui, affectueuse. Le crétin, c'était autrefois l'idiot du village, l'innocent. Les écrivains en ont fait un variety : le dos voûté, le regard fuyant, un chien en maraude.
A l'époque où j'étais élève de khâgne, au lycée Condorcet, le crétin se révélait en pleine lumière à l'occasion de l. a. bad épreuve de thème latin. Le crétin commençait à moins trente. J'ai vu ainsi l'un de mes excellents camarades, aujourd'hui journaliste fortress réputé, plonger dans les profondeurs inexplorées du moins soixante-huit. Un crétin hors pair.
De nos jours, ce mot est un peu oublié. Merci donc à Jean-Paul Brighelli de l'avoir ressuscité, d'avoir intitulé son livre los angeles Fabrique du Crétin. A première vue, à première lecture, j'ai naturellement commis le fake pas, le contresens attendu. J'ai cru que Jean-Paul Brighelli nous expliquerait que l'école est devenue une fabrique de crétins. Rapidement, j'ai corrigé mon erreur de lecture. Le Crétin dont il s'agit n'est pas le produit de l. a. fabrique, mais son ingénieur, son directeur, son consumer. Je m'y retrouve mieux ainsi, je l'avoue.
Mais qu'est-ce donc qu'un crétin aujourd'hui ? Il y a de moins en moins de villages, donc de moins en moins d'idiots du village. Il n'y a plus de thèmes latins, par conséquent on manque cruellement de crétins abyssaux. En bon citoyen, je me suis tourné vers le discours présidentiel où l'on trouve souvent des perles. Et je n'ai pas été déçu. Juste avant de rencontrer le most popular ministre britannique autour d'un triste saumon en papillote, le chef de l'Etat français se plaignit de devoir supporter une heure durant «ce crétin de Tony Blair», qualifié tout aussitôt de «con prétentieux».
J'étais sauvé. M'était soudain fournie une définition moderne, actuelle, efficace du crétin. Il suffit ensuite de l. a. décliner sur le mode scolaire. Exercice trop facile pour que j'y fasse perdre le temps de mon lecteur. Une seule constatation : le crétin en chef demeure de moins en moins longtemps en selle sur son cheval de rodéo. Ce qui n'est pas encore le cas du crétin de bureau, défait le plus dangereux. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Poche .
Nos enfants ne savent plus lire, ni compter, ni penser. Le constat est negative, et ses factors moins obscures qu'on ne veut bien le dire. Un enchaînement de bonnes intentions mal maîtrisées et de calculs intéressés a délité en une trentaine d'années ce qui fut l'un des meilleurs systèmes éducatifs au monde. Faut-il incriminer les politiques, les profs, les mom and dad, les syndicats, les programmes ? En tout cas, l. a. Nouvelle Pédagogie a fait ses " preuves " : l'école a cessé d'être le moteur d'un ascenseur social défaillant. Ceux qui sont nés dans los angeles rue, désormais, y restent. Dès lors, que faire ?
