Do you know the story of a young man who meets a girl and falls madly in love with her?
For weeks, he’s been very nice to her and brings her breakfast in bed.
Coffee, croissants, orange juice, fresh little flower – in short, everything.
Then one day, the guy wakes up kissing his beauty and is about to leave for work when the girl calls him angry.
“Oh! And my lunch? You don’t love me anymore?”
Moral: Nothing is more difficult than to be taken away from someone who considers it an entitlement.
We will not back up!
This is what is happening in France.
The government says: “Well, listen, the economic and demographic situation has changed, the old ways of doing things no longer hold, we will have to adapt to the new reality and postpone the retirement age from 62 to 64.”
The result: the country explodes.
“You will not take away our birthrights!”
Yeah, I get it, it’s not easy, but anyway, look at the situation, we can’t go on anymore, and…
You will not take our acquired rights!!! »
I hear you, it’s never fun to step back, but what do you want, there are more and more retirees and fewer and fewer workers, and you don’t want more immigration, so…
- Listen to the chronicle of Christian Rieu, correspondent of the daily newspaper in Paris duty into a microphone Available as a podcast :
“You will not take our birthright!” Go ahead, hop, we’re setting the shot on fire! »
You calmly explain the situation to them, show them all the numbers, all the demographic projections and all the statistical tables, and nothing they do.
They’re on their way out.
All they see is that the government brought them breakfast in bed for decades, and now it doesn’t.
So they set newsstands on fire and threw stones at the policemen.
As de Gaulle said: “France is capable of revolutions, but it is not capable of reforms.”
Beheading the king? No problem, sharpen the guillotine and bring the basket!
But raising the retirement age from 62 to 64?
It’s okay, isn’t it?
It goes like this: For most people, government can only go one way.
Even if it is in front of us, there is a slope.
Look at the “phony austerity” of the Couillard government.
The government has not cut spending. He limited spending growth.
Government spending continued to rise, but at a slower pace.
The result: we acted as if the government had cut off our supplies.
As the millionaire faucet continues to flow.
Nothing is more difficult for government than to undo what is right or wrong as an acquired right.
On the other hand, taxpayers complain because they are taxed and taxed too much.
But don’t cut back on spending! Because we will organize strikes all over the kingdom!
Then what do we do?
We do nothing! We continue in the same direction!
Even if it leads us to the wall!
