Why France is Not a Country
Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA
Why do people continue to take France seriously?
The fact is that France has not existed as a truly separate nation for generations.
Politically and economically, France is totally controlled by Germany through the European Union. French politicians have handed over their democracy, their freedom and their currency and accepted German rule.
Culturally, France has been very effectively colonised by the UK and the USA. The French language, for example, now contains a vast number of words stolen from English. France no longer has any serious cultural life of its own.
The French have given up trying to stop these things happening (surrender is a favourite French characteristic) and they have just become increasingly xenophobic.
Understand all this and you understand France and the increasingly odd outpourings from the diminutive Macron.
