Is Europe falling?
Do you mean Europe, as in all nations in Europe, or just France? Either way the answer is "no".
For some inexplicable reason some people seem to think that when there is a protest in any nation in Europe it is an indication that all these stable,
advanced democracies are on the verge of imploding.
In all European countries people are constantly protesting about one thing or another. Sometimes it gets out of hand and some stones are thrown, but
mostly it's orderly and unreported. In France there seems to be the occasional cultural need to have a real riot, and that's what we have at the
moment with the Yellow Vests. A decade ago French immigrants were burning their own houses (sensible), and two decades ago they were burning English
sheep and before that la-de-da. You get my point.
They even have the occasional riot in the US, but that does not presage the end of the USA does it?
Lastly: Europe is not France. The EU is not Europe.
