The most dangerous opponents of democracy, here and now, are not candidates for a cold and bloody dictatorship but the competent democrats to maneuver to give a democratic and even scientific appearance to their mediaatic-political dictatorship.
It has been said many times that voters do not register on the voters’ lists, abstain, voted blank or null because they did not have enough civic sense because they did not have candidates of their choice, because the real problems were not addressed …
It is less said that they feel fooled, at every election, because their choice is never respected.
During the last presidential election, the essential questions were discussed, candidates have spoken, different opinions have been expressed. What have they become?
With 11 candidates in the first round and 2 in the second.
On socio-economic issues, the candidates had very different positions, from the extreme left to François Fillon.
It is on his very right-handed position that Francois Fillon won the primary of the right and center: in particular on social security and its alliance with la manifestation pour tous. Once appointed, he was obliged to make a quick retro-pédalage on the question of social security and its links with private insurance, because what had been favorable in the right primary became dangerous for the whole Right in a general election, especially in the second round. In a way, François Fillon was the victim of his political honesty.
Sure that power could not escape him after a septennat that ended badly, he said, too clearly, what he wanted to do and even the name of his future prime minister, a boss of private insurance, was already circulating ..
His failure, his degradation is due only partly to this outrageous position, even for his camp. Added to this, his quarrels with the justice system on fictitious and family jobs and some ostentatious gifts.
This point partly hides the first.
Among the few clear commitments of the candidate Emmanuel Macron, there is the intention to develop the labor law and to have it adopted by ordinances, possibly by using the 49.3.
For this, however, there must be some acceptance by the National Assembly. That is to say now the importance of the legislative elections. Emmanuel Macron should benefit from the renewed dynamics of support. Perhaps he will make some announcement in order to obtain a majority which will allow him to pass on what is close to his heart.
Emmanuel Macron should remember it at the risk of the austéritaire, austerity and authority. François Hollande left the instruments in place.
