You discovered Capitalism and true freedom. Good for you. It's the only course that allows you to set your own course and to prosper. Sad so many are
satisfied to be clock watchers, watching somebody else's clock.
I'm american... so I already had capitalism inscribed in my bones. They have the possibility of freedom here- it IS a capitalistic economy (some
precision for those who have heard the rumor it is a socialist one).
I was amazed at all the aid and and incentive they offer anyone who is willing to take a risk and try to create more business! It isn't possible, in
the US, to get all the unemployment you paid into through the years back in a lump sum for investing in a business!
But they have this system where protection and full security is possible too, if you want that. The more protection you are willing to give up, the
more freedom you recieve. It is actually quite logical, I think.
I personally am of the opinion as someone else said- much of the people tend to whine too much. They have no idea how good they have it.
The one big problem I would say they have is the way they have tried so hard to appease the Islamists, and went overboard where the Islamists now have
more rights than the french and walking all over them.
But a revolution would give the Muslims the opportunity to step into power.
I wish the OP godspeed, but since this country has a bigger middle class than a lower class and higher class, and the middle class will not want to
take part (many kind of think a revolution is called for when the split between low and middle class gets huge, with no middle class, like the USA)
they might have a hard time achieving it.
I think the young people would do better getting invovled in politics, voting, etc. But that is just my personal opinion.
