A perceptive analysis of the factors igniting the Fires of France:
Macron’s blindness – does he even see his fellow citizens as necessary to his reign?? One doubts he sees much at all. You don’t win rebellious hearts by calling them “thugs”.
This seems to be a wash-rinse-repeat of French culture’s tendency toward violent solutions. The fault lines run deep, and Macron does not seem to have the testicular fortitude to face and counter this crisis.
