World News: France . . .This Way Out

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Presented by President Emmanuel  Macron as an emergency exit to a country paralyzed by the gangue of an obsolete political and social environment, the new world is struggling to see the light of day.

If structural explanations can explain it, they also stumble on the reality of the natural evolution of Man facing the challenges of existence.

Elected on the theme of a new world to invent and to which now tend to Emmanuel Macron is, despite himself, facing a question, or even an impasse as much ideological as political. The idea of ​​this new world, the radical opposite of the old, where, with successive political alternations, right and left, was torn apart, seems to be mired today in the sands of reality.

The opinion, cradled in muffled by the music of Yellow Vests, excited by the success of the inter-union demonstration of December 5, scalded by a politics too right-handed, and by some aspects neo-liberal, seems today little inclined to to espouse the vision of a President of the Republic, who is also very bad at drawing other contours than those he had advanced during his campaigns.

Reform or Create

There are several reasons for this lack of inspiration that some people would describe as at best political inertia, at worst, inability to provide the country with a future, if only for the short term.

First, the socio-economic reality of a country of eruptive nature that is not fundamentally conservative, aware of the need to reform and modify the administrative or political structures of the country, but which remains deeply attached to the State. Providence, the one that was created and acquired hard struggle after the Second World War. Thus, the French and generally Western Europe have a taste for history and especially the past that has led them to today.

This obstacle, certainly difficult to overcome is however not insurmountable because the French remain favorable to the changes that are proposed to them even if sometimes, they express their discontent, the show of force of December 5 in France and in Paris proved it.

On the other hand, the problem facing the tenant of the Elysee is certainly the impossibility for the moment to shape this third way, this new world. Why ? First, because the new can only be created by building on the old.

To create a company ex-nihilo is in no way thinkable or feasible to date and to succeed it would be a challenge that even a president who is not Jupiterian can realize.

Sketch and Evolution

 Now, the old world, vilified by the President of the Republic as the father of all the evils of the country, is, whether he likes it or not, still and well there. The societal and economic reflexes have not yet definitely changed, are far from being and, remain positive, are just beginning to sketch a semblance of evolution.

It is enough to convince oneself to note how much the habits having to work with respect for the environment progress with steps of ants! So, what should we do? To question the notion of reforming at the risk of falling into a philosophical debate that would disconnect from the urgency of reality?

One thing is clear: reforming is already trying to break with the past. From there to say that the step towards a new world is crossed or about to be, there is a lot of pretension and vanity to advance it, even to defend it.

However, would it not be appropriate to pretend that manners and mentalities have certainly evolved over the years and centuries, that man has of himself gradually adapted to these changes, that the law, thought and written by he, accompanied him in his changes but that new world is not strictly speaking.

Just a set of evolutions, sometimes visible, sometimes violent, accepted or rejected, that move and destabilize, federate or divide, causing social upheavals and all that the new world does not exist because the new world, it every day he invents and reinvents himself.
