A French school where nobody feels French

A short video which doesn't need much explanation:

This is the future of France unless a patriotic politician like Marine Le Pen is voted into power. She is polling at 25% for the first round of voting, the highest of any of the presidential candidates, but the more difficult task for her will be to win in the second round of voting (she has polled as high as 43% for the second round). So it looks difficult, but not impossible for her to succeed.


  1. The problem she'll have to overcome is the system where all the minor parties have agreed to drop out in the second round of she gets through the first (she will) thus forcing people to choose between her and the current government.
    They may, however, be in for a big Trump like shock as she sounds pretty popular.

  2. This reminds me of Trudeau telling the Canadians that they have no core identity.

    "Late last year, Justin Trudeau told the New York Times that Canada is becoming a new kind of country, not defined by our history or European national origins, but by a 'pan-cultural heritage'.

    'There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,' Trudeau said, concluding that he sees Canada as “the first post-national state.'

    Even the New York Times called the suggestion 'radical.'"

    It's a perfect strategy for secular liberals (mangerialists, globalists, whatever you'd like to call them). A society that is more and more divided along ethnic and religious lines will have no real core identity. The way to achieve this division is to promote immigration from foreign nations by claiming that it necessary in order to: replace the aging population, make the economy more 'diverse' and competitive, promote GDP growth, and pay for future retirement schemes. Every westernised european nation is doing this. It's such a brutally simple and effective tactic for dismantling the historical nation. People who do not understand complex economic arguments filled with graphs and projections will be unable to counter any of these arguments (and that's a lot of people, honestly)

    Of course the author of the above article makes an appeal to liberal values, but these political values are not a replacement for organic culture based on shared history, ethnicity, and creed.

    I know I'm not saying anything new, but I found it interesting how Trudeau let the mask slip so easily while expressing the logical conclusion of all progressive multicultural states. Perhaps he is truly an idiot and his handlers had words with him after he put his foot in it.

    I don't see any way to change course without some radical shift in politics, and for that you need large demographic support; which means the window for change is closing rapidly on european society.

    1. Excellent comment, thank you. Whether someone is a liberal who wants people to be managed/regulated by the state or by the logic of the market they are likely to look negatively on forms of loyalty and commitment that bind people together and which give them non-liberal and non-market sources of value. This seems to be especially true of those who are committed to global free-marketism.
