Logan Posted March 24, 2006 Author Share Posted March 24, 2006 Great point Ian and this subject would be an interesting thread on it's own.I actually think people power in France is more powerful than government and has more effective control over any excess by those elected to govern. Perhaps that's a form of democracy working? However the 'people power' tends to be either union or vested interest group organised and far from spontaneous public action. Odd thing that you never see public protest when more socialist laws are adopted. So I think the process only works one way. France and it's culture is firmly wedded to the social model and that is likely to remain in the future. How long the country can remain an economic island as the world moves on is an unknown. I personally think social unrest is here to stay. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
