As I have stated before, I was raised in the educational community and I sat in on their meetings. I saw that the agenda was to “re-orient” the students. The key to their success, with the teachers, is found in the facilitators who are always part of any teachers conferences and other meetings of the teachers. The effect on the teachers is profound because they “came to the realization” that the “progressive” mantra was the “only way” because they had come to that decision all on their own. NO! They were led to believe that by those facilitators who are well trained in how to “persuade” others to conclude that what you have guided them to believe came from yourself. If a teacher is not deprogrammed following one of those meetings, they will “run right off the cliff” and will be sure that is the proper thing to do.
As a result, the concept of personal responsibility is replaced with “we must teach our students to be good little worker bees in the colony”. The proper term for that kind of “thinking” is Commune ism. Why are people amazed that we now have a Commune ity organizer occupying the oval office? Far too many voters were played like a herd of lemmings who were guided over the cliff by the un-news media. Of course we all know that those “great leaders’ in the un-news media know so much more than we do, therefore as good little worker bees, we need to follow anything they direct us to think.
The sad part is that it works nearly every time.
Can we escape the Commune mind set and “add up the numbers” for ourselves or will we just run off the cliff once again?
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PERSONAL FREEDOM (or personal responsibility) IN A COMMUNE!

Secotine, you are right! Yes, as always, the French are guilty, but never responsible. They mirror our "progressives."

the problem here in France is that children are indoctrinated by socialists/communists teachers starting in kindergarten 98 % journalists are socialists, 90% of the Judiciary system are socialists and 93% of the muslim population vote for Hollande.
If you try to say something against the left wing general thinking you immediately are classify as racist, islamophobic and xenophobic.
I'm french and I cant understand the stupidity of my fellow countrymen. The country is in economic shambles but the only thing they want to hear is: vacations, full pension at 60 (when not 50 or 55 like at the railway and subway companies) subsidies, etc, etc. They can not understand that you can not spend money you do not have and I think this is what politicians want because "uneducate "people do not ask question. The less brains we have, the better.
But...very soon I'm afraid, the economic bomb will explode and you can be sure, that, like the Greeks they will accuse anything but themselves. eh oui, les Français sont comme cela, coupables mais jamais responsables !

France is just the first of the EU countries to fall to the Socialist-Muslim (Sharia Law) Alliance, which uses the ballot box to accomplish peaceful subversion. It is unlikely the remaining fragmented political parties can or will unite to prevent this catastrophe.
Our family hosted a EU exchange student for a school year. We were shocked at the different mentality toward an approach to problem resolution, the lack of a sense of individual responsibility, and a general overall lack of initiative . Socialist indoctrination from childhood is difficult, if not impossible, to overcome.
If we needed to locate this exchange student, we would likely find him in the French cafe as you describe.

"French work ethic", an oxymoron if I ever heard one. People become comfortable in their prisons as long as the wardens treat them nice and the food is acceptable. If the cable goes out they riot; if they are asked to pitch in a little to cover the cost of their incarceration they riot.
The people of Greece and France are prisoners in their own countries. Sure they have it all, so to speak, the easy life, but they are prisoners. The same thing is happening here in America, people are being made comfortable in their cells while the executioner sharpens his blade.
The cow in the field has no idea why the farmer feeds her so well, but the butcher does. These people or their children will find themselves in the nightmare of totalitarianism eventually and wonder what happened to the benevolent leader that promised them the life of leisure.
I got to thinking the other day how queer it is that people who have never known freedom cherish it more than people who have it. That is more for America, because it seems Europe, or at least Western Europe has only fought revolutions to replace Kings with Emperors and Emperors with tyrants.

Thank you, Margaret S. Look for my new book coming out soon at Amazon.
@Audrey Smith - I am afraid you are right.
@Rostislav - The French may have to do without many things in the near future.
Were not the Russians who coined the term "bistro" when in a hurry to get their food during WWII? "Bystra" (hurry)? I apologize for the incorrect phonetic Russian spelling.

These people are going to self destruct, go totally belly-up and go down to an atrocious Globalist Scientific Technocratic dictatorship in the end!
It is very sad that there was not a free enterprise non crony globalist crook like Sarkozy was - to offer these blind Socialistic people a path to freedom!
You cannot keep taking from a basket, without emptying it - have any of these Parisiennes' noticed that fact about the natural laws of physics?

The French Will Never Leave the Cafes Now

Socialist France moved further to the left of Putin’s Russia
Socialist France moved further to the left of Putin’s Russia. The French just elected President the leftist Francois Hollande who professes to be the protector of the poor, wants more government handouts (stimulus), and rejects the austerity measures that his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy had cobbled with Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor.More...
