French President Macron Declares “Social and Economic” State of Emergency….

With massive civil unrest overwhelming many parts of French society, President Emmanuel Macron made a televised speech to the nation attempting to calm the anger. Macron declared a social and economic state of emergency and attempted to stop the ongoing Yellow Vest protests by announcing a special year-end bonus.

In addition to the year-end bonus, during the national address from the Elysee Palace Macron announced an increase in the minimum wage of €100 per month; a tax exemption on overtime pay; and a plan to not raise taxes on pensioners with an income less than €2,000/month.  Here’s the english version of the EU broadcast.

When the same issues happened in Venezuela, Maduro followed a similar plan… things didn’t end well.   Macron has already committed the full weight of his police and military to crush any uprising.  Tenuous times in France.

    Egalitarianism inherently presumes “equality of outcome”. When a nation-state adopts it as a founding principle, radical instability (vis-a-vis Venezuela) is eventually inevitable.

    Macron is willing to throw a few crumbs to the protesters but can they see through this action for what it is. France doesn’t have the oil wells that Venezuela has/had and they want to ban oil wells by 2040. What is going to prop up their economy, wine and tourism? The wine can be exported by with all the civil unrest, who’d want to go there.

    He thinks so little of his fellow countrymen that he can just buy them off. Using someone else’s money also since France is broke. Pathetic excuse for a human.

    Even by French standards, that’s a pretty weak bribe.

    How many French people realize he’s bribing them with their own money. Money government stole from most if not all of them in the first place. Many Americans see this happening here everyday.

    The yellowjackets are showing no signs of surrender. The anti-globalist protests will go on and the EU Army beatings will continue until morale improves.
