Tough life in Canada
Morally distinct

The nature of humans

What is remarkable about the election today is that the French people have already turned against the established anti-nationalist parties, rejecting both in the first round of voting. But while they are willing to reject both sides of the establishment, they are not yet ready to turn to the nationalists. In this, Macron plays much the same role as Trump; he is a nominal outsider who, despite his elite connections, was not a player in either establishment party.

Macron will fail abysmally, of course, which is why I expect the Front National, possibly led by Marine Le Pen's more telegenic niece, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, to come to power in the next election cycle.

It's tragic. The longer the majority population waits to change course, the bloodier the end result.
