Example text

Cet élément d’imprévisibilité se retrouve actuellement au cœur de l’idée d’insécurité, souvent associée à celle de violence. Le sentiment de l’insécurité correspond à la croyance, fondée ou non, que l’on peut s’attendre à tout, que l’on ne peut plus être sûr de rien dans la vie quotidienne. Ici encore, imprévisibilité, chaos et violence ont partie liée. Ce qui nous conduit à un autre des aspects essentiels de la notion : son aspect performatif. Un énoncé ou une expression a une valeur performative lorsque, en les prononçant, on accomplit une action.

On classe dans cette catégorie : – les « incivilités », c’est-à-dire des atteintes légères aux personnes et aux biens, peu graves mais qui contribuent à la dégradation de la sociabilité et de la vie quotidienne ; – la violence carcérale (violence des conditions de vie et des relations entre détenus) longtemps considérée comme partie intégrante de la peine ; – les violences scolaires qui sont le fait d’enfants qui transportent à l’intérieur de l’école leurs modes de comportement brutaux, qui ne voient pas l’intérêt de l’éducation, qui vivent la relation aux professeurs et aux adultes comme un manque de reconnaissance envers eux, qui ne supportent ni discipline ni hiérarchie ; – les violences conjugales et domestiques qui se produisent à l’intérieur des couples et de la famille et tiennent, à des degrés divers, au machisme et au sexisme toujours forts chez les hommes, à l’alcoolisme et aux vicissitudes de la vie sexuelle et de la vie affective.

En ce qui concerne les guerres, c’est seulement depuis que s’est développée la connaissance statistique des sociétés au XIXe siècle que nous disposons d’informations à peu près fiables. Les progrès depuis le début des années 1960 des systèmes informatiques et des systèmes d’observation (photographie aérienne, puis satellites d’observation et maintenant drones) ont encore amélioré cette connaissance. Non seulement les sociétés industrielles ne cessent de perfectionner leurs instruments d’enregistrement mais encore, avec les mémoires et traitements informatiques, elles peuvent stocker et traiter en temps réel d’énormes masses de données.
