Dubaï: rêve ou réalité?

Dubaï est en crise. Est-ce une tour d’un immense château qui s’effondre ou un château de cartes voué à disparaitre à la vitesse de son apparition? Nous le saurons dans un futur proche.

Il y a 20 ans, cette ville était un désert habité par des bédouins et aujourd’hui c’est une méga-ville capable d’ébranler les marchés boursiers de ce monde.

Le problème des villes qui poussent dans un désert est qu’elles s’entremêlent souvent avec la notion du mirage. Elles sont grandioses et irréelles tout comme Las Vegas, une autre ville qui me fait penser à Dubaï.

Dans ces villes pèse le non réel, l’abstrait et le temporaire. Les habitants ont une fatalité : leur sort est entremêlé à celui des bédouins et des nomades qui vécurent dans ces lieux des millénaires durant. Très rares sont les villes qui ont poussées dans un désert et ont survécues au fil du temps (non, le Caire n’est pas construit dans le désert, bien que le climat soit désertique, cette ville est construite autour du Nil assurant ainsi de l’eau en abondance pour ses habitants). La ruée vers l’or et toutes les villes fantômes du Far West qui ornent les Western et les Lucky Luke en témoignent.

Tout comme je me suis toujours méfié de Dubaï, je me méfie des individus qui se sont dotés d’une personnalité hors pair du jour au lendemain mais n’ont aucune histoire voire aucun passé pour en témoigner. Toutes ces qualités qui attirent et qui sont miroitées avec panache mais qui tombent dans la notion du mirage. Peut-être devraient-ils se nomadiser?

Saint-Thomas à la mémoire sale...
