A year ago, on January 6, the Capitol events in Washington not only coincided with the creation of 🟦🟪 Perspectives Europe-Monde 🟦🟪 (cf. Le Drame du Capitole: 6 February 1934/ 6 January 2021) but they were an important trigger in a way. The terms then used were “pandemic violence” or “gangrene of democracy”.
