After the revelation of his professional situation, the High Commissioner for Pensions, Jean Paul Delevoye had to admit the reality hither to hidden. But let us ensure that the surveillance of the elites is not fueled by social jealousy.

While it does not matter the number of jobs and terms of office occupied by the High Commissioner for Pensions, because what counts at the moment is the exemplarity that man is supposed to give through the function that it was entrusted to him.

Entrusted to Reform French Pension System, High Commissioner for Pensions, Jean Paul Delevoye used the position as a springboard to secure additional employment, both paid and freelance which may or may not have interfered with his dedication and devotion to his appointed position. What is clear the arduous task at hand needed a fulltime watchfulness, and not a glancing cursory review when questioned.

Some would evoke a form of indecency when others would speak more simply of unwelcome awkwardness. In both cases, the situation of the High Commissioner for Pensions, Jean-Paul Delevoye, is hardly enviable with regard to the sacrifices that the reform wanted by the President of the Republic and inspired by the said Jean-Paul Delevoye impose on the French (lemonde.fr: Lemonde.fr: https://www.lemonde.fr/politique/article/2019/12/14/).

This notion of exemplarity, dear to many of us, is generally accepted as a token of intellectual and moral honesty, a kind of certificate of good morals which allows the wearer to be heard at the same time because apprehended as legitimate. And it is clear today that under the law, man has made a mistake.

And to admit that it is very complicated now to gravitate in the political sphere as those who venture there are scrutinized and spied on, proof is.

Cabal and Social Jealousy

One of the last politicians to have paid the price for this close and permanent surveillance is François de Rugy, former Minister for the Ecological Transition and President of the Assembly who was forced to resign for the use of public funds after Médiapart revealed the facts. Good thing ?

Certainly because, let us repeat, the duty of exemplarity comes before any personal consideration when the general interest is at stake. To argue about the media cabal or the omission fault seems to be too easy for those who have been caught in the act.

Many will mention, and rightly so, the need to inform the general public and citizens about the practices surrounded by a halo of suspicion from certain elected officials or the Minister of the Republic. However, let us be careful that this freedom to inform, to track down the flaw or the error made to the detriment of the community is well motivated by the general interest and not by a form of disguised social jealousy which would be more inquisitive maneuvers that real informative inclinations.

The era we are living in, nervous and passionate, worried and feverish, has reached the point where doubt and suspicion feed a society in legitimate quest for transparency and clarity in its relations with the elites, whether social or political. .

Does this mean, some would argue, that this is obvious evidence of a change in customs and mentalities? The allegation is founded and contrasts, in its practices, with those which prevailed in the past when the political world and those who gravitated around them took refuge behind an unconsciously accepted impunity.

It remains to be seen whether this change will benefit our societies ... Only history will judge it.
