While the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) protests actually began on 17.11.18, I think most are aware that frustration with the government has been building for many, many years. Sarkozy certainly played a big role in this. Deep-rooted contractions have been left unaddressed while offshore accounts were filled up. Without wanting to dedicate a lot of space to the details of each French government since the last massive riots in 1968, I think it is easier to proceed from the fact that France has been essentially occupied by America for decades. For me personally, this helps to explain a lot.
In Russia there is the word “народ”. The closest translation of this into English is “nation”, but actually it doesn’t really convey the sense. We’re talking about fraternal relations amongst peoples that are indistinguishable from kindred ones. And it’s understandable why this concept doesn’t exist in the West. Or at least, I’ve never seen it. When America landed on Omaha beach in 1944 it sure didn’t have the best interests of France at heart. And the quick formation of NATO in 1949 testifies to this. America succeeded to create a loyal bloc in synchronisation with the USSR’s withdrawal from Europe (by the way, talk about “Soviet occupation” is vulgar NATO propaganda). Normandy was bombarded by US aviation in an act of national subjugation. This is also psychological warfare.
After all, it’s no coincidence that as of this very moment Japan – nuked by America – is the No. 1 most indebted country in the world. Africa is another story; the people were stripped of their identity and turned into automated plantation workers for the “civilised” West. This helps to explain why French TV broadcasts American movies, American series, American music, etc on a loop. Or at least until recently. I have noticed that there has been a slight reduction in the last year, but there is still predominance all the same. On TV there is a focus on violence. Children’s cartoons consist of almost endless aggression.
