Europe’s Debt: America’s Crisis? – Betrayal


we always seem to get new politicians to say that, “Look we have an easier way of fixing the problems. We can somehow find the money, or the kind of ways of raising new loans that will make the transition easier.” You are exactly right. I think French always consider that they have been betrayed since maybe fifteen years about. They don’t believe in politicians anymore… really, really…really. This question of betrayal is very important, because we had such an increase of extreme party in France like in Europe, but in France we had the National French gaining 20% in the election. This is the first time it’s so high and this is I think the very, very, the first symptom of this crisis. We have France- which is not believing in Europe anymore, in globalization. They want to protect again, and go back to France and protect itself… and Europe is seen as danger. Before it was Asia, it was China… and now it’s Europe, it’s Europe. And this is such a horrible irony, because the whole European project was supposed to build international understanding and an end to nationalist sentiment and so on. It is a bit paradoxical and sad because people, French people, were very proud belonging to Europe, and now it seems that they are rejecting Europe because of economy position. And people are afraid to see that everything is decided in Brussels for economic items. We have elected a French president, of course, but it seems that Brussels decides for everything. And the French people don’t want that.
