The accident has just taken place with this unprecedented coronavirus crisis! The eye is no longer in the grave staring at Cain. He is in the sky atwatch the men, in search of some ephemeral paradises, perhaps forever lost. Here we are locked in the world.

But it's for our good ... Really? Should we not rather, as Jean Baudrillard suggests, “be wary of those who wish us good? ".
