It is not very enviable. The acquaintance of mine who spent a good deal of time around the Atlanticist political top and knows many people there personally sent me his (her) thoughts on the issue of “elites” (I know the identity of this person, which should remain obscured for now) in which notes of this significance appear:
Well, evidently some French journalists had it with Macron:
ENTRETIEN. Gérard Davet et Fabrice Lhomme : « Nous avons cherché à démasquer Emmanuel Macron » Les journalistes Gérard Davet et Fabrice Lhomme publient, cette semaine, « Le traître et le néant » aux éditions Fayard. Une enquête de 630 pages sur l’accession au pouvoir d’Emmanuel Macron et son quinquennat. « Certains trouveront que l’image renvoyée du Président n’est pas si mauvaise, d’autres qu’elle est accablante », expliquent-ils.
Translation: Gérard Davet and Fabrice Lhomme: “We sought to unmask Emmanuel Macron” The journalists Gérard Davet and Fabrice Lhomme publish, this week, “The traitor and the nothingness” with the editions Fayard. A 630-page investigation into the accession to power of Emmanuel Macron and his five-year term. “Some will find that the returned image of the President is not that bad, others that it is overwhelming,” they explain.
Read the whole thing (use Google Translate) and you will get the idea how human “nothingness” (an apt definition) do betray their countries. Here is one quote:
The “thing” of Emmanuel Macron is that he is flirtatious, charismatic, clever, making the person in front of him believe that he is the most important in the world. He sends back to his older interlocutors the image of who they were or what they wanted to be. And Brigitte Macron plays a major role in this mechanism. She is present at every important moment.
Yes, they all are–they all are avatars, holograms with zero capabilities to run anything and still, who is guilty that this kind of human material gets elected? In Macron’s case, France. French people–they elected him, they fell for his utter BS and agreed for their country to be finished off. Same goes for the United States–no matter what were manipulations at the ballot box–the fact that half the country voted for a senile, demented, con-artist and swamp creature–sorry guys, you wanted, you got it. Now live with the consequences. This is how the decline of civilization looks like: perverts, pedophiles and con-artists on the top, ignorant “bread and circuses” masses on the bottom.
This is the reason why today Vladimir Putin speaking at Valdai reiterated his (and many others’) point that:
Obviously, this is not news to anyone who didn’t slumber under the rock for the last 20 years and saw how modern model simply stopped producing real wealth and value. Now we have a new version of FIRE woke capitalism which is a direct path to a complete totalitarianism and a bacchanalia of human depravity, led by people akin to Macron and his ilk. So, expect new Macrons, new Bidens and new Epsteins emerging from the murky depths of the West’s political machine. Yes, I know, sounds depressing but it is what it is. Modern West and globalism are one and the same and the rest of the world doesn’t like it, and West’s departure from its dominant position is one of the indicators that the system doesn’t work anymore. There is a lot more to be said about this whole thing but for now I need to run to do some chores, after that we may discuss the issue of China’s test of hyper-sonic weapon, which evidently, shook the United States and forced Pentagon to declare:
Right. “Components” of “prototypes”. In related news, the tests of components of the prototypes of apple pies, like flour and apples, have been conducted in a number of households around the world and those tests have been successful, so in the future some apple pies could be baked. As Scott Ritter stated commenting on this launch about US efforts:
Pro hint: It’s not an arms race if one side is spending all the money while losing ground.
I am more blunt for the last 10 years: the West lost the arms race because it was preparing for the war which nobody is going to fight. So, it is not just a technological gap, it is doctrinal, and this one is much harder to close.
