Chris Bickerton’s essential essay on Macron and French politics! A comment by StephenKMackSD

I, like a great many, will read the comments on the French election results at The Economist, The Financial Times, The New York Times, the American political gossip sheet Politico, and for a change of pace, the journalistic sink hole of The Daily Beast. But take the opportunity to read the informative, not to speak of revelatory essay by Chris Bickerton, on Macron and the decline of the Socialist Party, as a political force in French life. He makes his arguments concisely, cogently, there is no rambling melodramatic chatter, as the framing device adopted by the the Neo-Liberal apologetic press.

Macron will now become the political darling of that press, as Obama once was, until his his ‘Hope and Change’ devolved into more of Neo-Liberalism Lite.


About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
