Paris is burning

Violent demonstrations in Paris enter their 8th day against Macron's gas taxes.

Macron said the taxes were necessary to fight fossil fuel converted to renewable energy cost.

The French keep falling into the same trap every time they elect a "leader". Didn't they know that renewable energy is not free? What did they expect from this dude when they elected him?

    Always there are reasons for higher taxes- the primary one is to fund the waste and ridiculous controls the government puts on the citizens.

    Destroy the populace to save them. Macron insists the higher taxes are necessary to reduce France’s dependence on fossil fuels and to fund renewable energy sources.

    At one point, France was the most advanced nuclear power user, with 70% of its electrical supply coming from reactors. Their safety record was flawless, but after the Japanese debacle, they reversed course, and like Germany, have begun shutting down these "dangerous" energy sources. Even the Sierra Club studies admit that nuclear power is safer and cleaner than any other source, but the herd continues to follow the delusion of "clean" energy.

    True, they brought that on themselves, however, although violent protests never solved anything, not only are they too, effected by the global sociological c[lie]mate, there is little they can do against the cultural marxist stupidities.
    It is difficult to ignore them, even more difficult to not to do unintentional business with them; but I also think that their own lack of consciousness is their own demise as well.

    Speak up?..Yes, but do not include physical animosity...state one's case then go for a recall of all the offending parties.
    Protests were intended to Hurt, to embarrass, to make known the atrocities but were never intended to do bodily harm nor destruction of personal property...that is counter productive.

    But then again, since when, have the French recognized the difference between counter productivity and productive activity.
