Aside from being a terrible thing, there is something that fascinates me about what's going on in France. By most accounts, France is a country with a decidedly strong socialist policy and economy compared with the US. The social safety net, healthcare, and similar programs represent a larger part of the budget nationally and taxes are higher. Despite all this, they are facing the kinds of massive urban frustration we've had in years past in some U.S. major cities.
I'm not really sure what this says. Does it mean there will always be this level of dissatisfaction and frustration no matter how much is spent? Does it give the far right an excuse to cut programs, saying they don't have a chance of working? Does it give the far left an excuse to increase spending even more?
I suppose this, like all things, will be used by both sides to justify whatever they already believe.
