Rip Van Winkle à la française

François Desouche ponders the impressions of a man falling into a coma in 1978 and awakening in 2009.

He would now be called a "Gaulois", a term he remembers only vaguely as a folkloric memory from his youngest years in elementary school.

Read the whole list.

The same for England: The sorry truth is we live in the twilight years of a social experiment that has failed.

In the caring, sharing culture of our social services, one fact gets forgotten. In order to protect the vulnerable, you have to take a stand. But our Government and our institutions are uncomfortable at exercising authority.
