The French Are At it Again
The French are at it again. If you read my last article about them, I noted how they had retired military generals warning of degeneracy and the potential for a civil war.
Now, they are in the hundreds of thousands protesting vaccine mandates:

Some 114,000 people have rallied across France to denounce what they see as government intrusion into their private lives. The protests were in response to the rollout of Covid-19 certificates and mandatory vaccination plans.
Thousands-strong protests took place in major French cities on Saturday, with a total of 137 protest events reported by the Interior Ministry. The biggest march in Paris drew about 18,000 people. The activists were chanting “Liberty!” and carrying signs protesting the policies of President Emmanuel Macron and demanding his resignation.
There was also some intersection between Covid-19 protesters and the anti-government Yellow Vests movement, which joined the marches. Yellow Vests have staged regular mass protests against Macron for over two years since 2018, opposing the president’s economic austerity drive.

Demonstrators, many of them unmasked, are unhappy with vaccination mandate for health workers and health pass to enter public places.
The interior ministry said that there were 53 different protests throughout France.
“Down with dictatorship”, “Down with the health pass” protesters chanted.
One of them, Yann Fontaine, a 29-year-old notary’s clerk from the Berry region in central France, said he had come to demonstrate in Paris arguing that the health pass was equivalent to “segregation”.“
Macron plays on fears, it’s revolting. I know people who will now get vaccinated just so that they can take their children to the movies, not to protect others from serious forms of COVID,” he said.
Along with burning down vaccination centers:
Considering that France was the country that initially started us on are egalitarian/democratic descent through the French Revolution (modernity) from the “Enlightenment” (a removal of tradition and Christendom) era, it seems almost a type of poetic justice that they would be the ones to correct their tide in another direction.
One could hope, at least. At this point, I’ll take whatever we can get. Any country that wants to step up to move us away from the Enlightenment era I’m all for.
So, France, good on you. Keep it up.
