Now France Is More American Than America?

President Macron of France rallies the French nation to stand up against the illiberal woke ideology.

Published

on

President Emmanuel Macron of France has warned that American woke ideology threatens the rich culture and identity of France. In a statement issued earlier this week, Macron denounced wokism and rallied the French nation to reject it and its central tenets. French intellectuals, academics, politicians, artists and other key cultural figures rallied to Macron, and denounced wokism and declared that it has no place in France. Amazingly, French leftists are even more adamant than rightists in their denunciation of wokism and its danger to France and to intellectual freedom.

Macron unequivocally denounced ‘radical’ ideas emanating from American universities and movies, and came out and said they are destroying American culture and freedom of thought and expression. He declared that France would never allow this to happen to its culture and its citizens ability to think and express themselves freely. France, he said, has a tradition of standing of liberty, and would stand strong against the illiberal strain of thought that has currently gripped American society and is erasing its 230+ year commitment tho freedom and free expression.

Lord Conrad Black of Cross Harbour, a leading intellectual and business figure on the right, wrote a lengthy piece in American Greatness in which he suggested that France would be the indispensable nation in the West to take on the wokist scourge and defeat it in the marketplace of ideas. He cites the example of General, and later President Charles De Gaulle of France defying American leadership and American ideas which it feels could “infect” the identity and culture of France in a negative way.

France, he says, has always been a nation that has stood for French values and ideals, and would not allow those to be erased by notions that originated elsewhere. France has always been very proud and conscious of its identity and alert to any encroachments by foreign ideas that could dilute it. Lord Black believes that if wokism is to be defeated in the marketplace for ideas, France will lead the way.

It is interesting to note that wokism is not flourishing in the former Eastern bloc, with Poland and Hungary in particular disdaining it and pushing back against it. Russia and China also are not fertile grounds for wokist ideology. In fact, the Chinese government just announced that they will be promoting ‘manly education’ for Chinese boys, with a strong emphasis on traditionally masculine virtues.

While American universities, Hollywood, and the media are under the sway of wokism, France and the French have made it clear that wokist ideology will be met with hostility in France. Macron even personally called the author of a wokist piece written in an American newspaper criticizing France for not being woke enough, and berated that individual for not understanding or ‘respecting’ France and the French way of thinking.

France is the first major Western country to push back hard against wokism, with the support of all of its major cultural institutions and leaders. It may very well lead the way for other Western nations to do the same.

The Dead Do Tell Tales

The words of Dr. William Maples, in describing typical suicide victims, are poignant

Published

on

It’s shame that the late Jeffrey Epstein, who allegedly hung himself, couldn’t have been examined by Dr. William R. Maples. Epstein’s body would have had a lot to say.

Poignant Words

Apart from the FBI subterfuge surrounding Epstein’s death, I found the words of Dr. Maples, in describing typical suicide victims to be poignant. Maples is a forensic researcher, diagnosing how and when people died. In his book, Dead Men Do Tell Tales, Dr. Maples, he writes, “Many of the skeletons that come into my laboratory belong to suicide victims who behaved like shy hermits in their final hours.”

“Usually they are found in remote places. People often go to some hidden place to kill themselves, whether from a desire to act alone and unhindered, or because they wish simply to disappear in solitude, spending their last moments in reflective silence.”

Would these people have killed themselves if they could’ve regularly attained reflective silence? Was their quest to die alone simply an ill-advised solution to the stresses they faced? How would their lives have been if they knew appropriate, reliable ways to find solace in the here and now, at home, at work, and everywhere in between?

Be True to Yourself

The masses take pills by the boatload. The masses race though their days. The masses, by and large, live lives of tension and turmoil. Stress has become the malady of the generation, and it’s better to not to follow the crowd.

Being true to yourself means doing what you need to do to stay healthy, balanced, and relaxed. It means having inner directedness. It requires drawing upon your knowledge, experience, and instinct to carve your own path; and to have less stress because you are less swayed by popular or prevailing norms. It is thinking and acting based on an ever-developing internal guidance system.

Being true to yourself means is learning what doesn’t work. You determine what is and is not relevant to you, and ultimately, what is and is not appropriate for you to stay in control of your day, every day, and of your life which could well extend for many decades.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.
