Ironic and unsurprising thing about is that how Macron had to quit his short ski trip to return to Paris.
Macron calls for ‘strong decisions’ after violent Yellow Jacket protests




French President Emmanuel Macron said he intends to take “strong decisions” to end the Yellow Jackets protests following violent demonstrations in the French capital Saturday.




The protests marked the eighteenth demonstration by the Yellow Jackets’ movement in Paris, timed to coincide with the end of a two-month public debate exercise launched by Macron. Protesters vandalized shops and restaurants on the Champs-Elysées as police sought to break up the protests with water canons.

Its rather irnoic and not surprising that Macron's supporters defend him. Even Macron's reform agenda is not about making French economy better nor competitive but rather it would help a certain group of people "Mostly wealthy people".


According to this user the France protests are Russian meddling although he has no evidence to back it up. Its rather comical to see how liberals are still blaming and accusing the Russians for everything.

Even when there is no evidence surrounding it.
Again this user in the comment literally says the following





professional political agitators and foreign meddling aimed at destabilizing France and weakening Europe as a whole.




@Paul NL why would he? The people voted for him in overwhelming numbers, and gave a good majority to En Marche in the Legislature during the last election cycle, on an ambitious reform agenda aimed at making the French economy better and more competitive.

Of course there’s pushback from special interests and professional political agitators (not to mention the hostile foreign meddling) but Macron won’t give up and neither will most French people.

That’s not the way the republic works anyway; there’ll be elections again soon enough, and people can decide then whether Macron should stay or go, but until then, he’s the President. And contrary to the fake news narrative, a lot of people are behind him. You’ll see when his party is #1 again in the EP Elections in May.


The same user already predicting the quick reelection of Macron? dispute his low popularity and scandals? i wonder is Russia also Responsible for Macrons recent scandals in his gov to?



The reality
What is happening in France is the result of not foreign meddling aimed at destabilizing France and weakening Europe as a whole but rather as the results of liberal polices.

These so called reforms that Macron's gov and liberals are proposing are ambitious for one reason and that is not to make France's economy better rather the opposite.

Not like Macron has his own powerful special interest like the Rothschild bank right that couldn't care less about the forgotten french people and only cares more for none French people and elitists?

I would say there is a very special powerful interest groups out there trying to defend and protect Macron at whatever the cost. This is the same Macron who on the France 24 interview already admitted that his so called Great National Debate was nothing but a msm stunt and he wont back down from his reform polices and agenda.

Western News Media Outlets see Macron as the last warrior and defender of Western liberalism.
Again the user on that comment section could be right about Macron winning but winning elections by voters no longer matter as seen with Sarkozy. Sarkozy won his past elections with money from gaddafi.

Anyone now in Europe could bribe in order to win elections just like Doug Ford has done in Ontario.
Voters? what voters? if they have the money you don't the voters.

Last French election was hardly an election at all. More like a push poll than an election, voters were offered alternatives too awful to contemplate so Macron's newly forged centrist fantasy appeared the only reasonable choice.

The puppeteers want to see democracy destroyed and have selected France as the next theatre for their attack on the rights of the common man.

Macron's call for strong decisions is an overt threat to further unleash the might of the state to destroy, kill, maime people that are demanding nothing more than direct democracy, an end to wage slavery and no more abuse of their hard earned wealth, stolen from them in the form of taxes to fund wars, service debts incurred by fat greedy politicians and the high-life for the few.

Macron, who I have seen aptly labelled Micron (because for sure, he is a pygmy of a man, insignificant in every way), is a monster with a lot to prove and has declared war on the working classes.

This is always the way it goes when Democracy dies. If the people want their power back its called Socialism or Communism. It doesn't really matter if a democracy is inefficient, and doesn't supply the elite with unlimited funds, because that's not what its all about. But you can guarantee that if a significant number of people are left out of the loop , because the Corporations have bought the politicians Their will be growing clouds of civil unrest. Which will get more and more violent. Nineteen French policemen have shot themselves with their service pistol since the trouble has started, at some point the people with the real power will say enough, and that will be the army.

Ask the people in certain countries in the world if they feel as though they have any power, and I'm sure they'll tell you "yes" because if they don't, the state will "disappear" them. Communism and Socialism are not power for people, they are power for the state which pretends it's the people. In that sense, it's no different at all than the corporations you all fear so much.

Communism and Socialism are not power for people

Nor is Capitalism. Both system have a similar ideology.

Hopefully his "Strong Decision" will be to step down. Macron has to know that his resignation would be the simplest way to prevent further violence and protests.

All systems are the same. Start out full of hope, are quickly corrupted and soon thereafter, begin to crush personal authority and private rights of the individual.

In France, first Macron warned that the yellow vests were a threat to all governments and has now threatened 'strong decisions'.

The problem is systems and government.

Not really.

Capitalism is not a political system. It is simply a word to describe the natural process of exchanging goods and services.

Socialism and Communism are as much political a they are economic. That's the main difference.

The system we have now has deep government intervention into the markets creating many of the distortions we see. When the government play in the markets essentially picking winners and losers through various types of policy, this i what you get and it isn't pure capitalism.

Banning protests will make it only worse.
