Some images are symbolic and can even be treated as signs sent from the cosmos – an announcement of future events or the most accurate, synthetic descriptions of reality. For example, you can see the performance of a prostitute broadcast live from Paris City Hall “Ice Diamond”. A transsexual, or whatever it is called – a man pretending to be a woman, Icy Diamond decided to use the invitation of the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, to advertise his services, make a porn movie and make a political manifesto or an artistic manifesto. provocation. So he performed several copulations in the toilets of the town hall and broadcast some of his actions live. He responded to the video:
How I managed to turn the Paris City Hall into a huge strip club and brothel. Liberty leads the people through the gold of the Republic. Thanks to whom? Thank you Anne Hidalgo for the invite.
It was the mayor who came up with the idea of organizing an LGBTWCUE party etc “Pride Night” at the Paris town hall, so she invited everyone she could to the party, and among the many prostitutes, the “Ice Diamond” was also honored. Sponsored by the city and Walt Disney, who owns an amusement park near Paris, the party was great – dinner, male masquerade shows, dancing, and a side-by-side copulation Icy broadcast. When the video of revelry at City Hall was shared on Twitter and administrators blocked the account, Icy Diamond threatened to show everything on a private channel, especially his actions with Mayor Hidalgo’s closest associates.

At that time, a wave of social protests, brawls and arson swept through Paris, and the city itself burned and drowned in rubbish. It is similar, if slightly less spectacular, in other French cities, all because of the increase in the retirement age by the government of Macron and Elisabeth Borne. This was done by omitting the vote in the National Assembly, where the prime minister and president do not really have a majority. Six years of Macron’s rule – paused due to the pandemic – have been marked by demonstrations, battles in the city streets, arson and vandalism. These are not incidents, but a permanent part of the French landscape. The police believe that, for example, the New Year’s Eve party goes smoothly if fewer than 1000 cars are on fire. This is a condition that afflicts France and has been deepening for years.
The French elites, local commentators, but also international commentators, explain all this with the typical French tendency to riots – minor or major revolutions, violent protests, they keep saying that these are harmless games, the color, the customs of France. For example, in dark, backward countries, religious processions are organized in cities, and in these progressive, truly European and democratic countries, cities are set on fire, demolished, and police beat up anyone who passes by. One thing must be admitted in the confrontation with the French police of the KOD gang, or the vulgar Lempart, so that they do not use themselves.
The narrative that French violent protests mean nothing, are merely expressions of local tradition, is an intellectual and moral bluff. Propaganda escape, secret reluctance to face the truth about the second most powerful country on the European continent. France is in a state of decay, collapse. Not like Germany, which is morally and intellectually bankrupt. No, France is collapsing physically, structurally. It becomes an uncontrollable state, one that ceases to function and is kept alive by the wealth accumulated by previous generations. However, these are beginning to run out, as evidenced by the military and political withdrawal from Africa’s eternal spheres of influence – former colonies. French Africa, economically, culturally and civilly linked to Paris, ceases to exist. It does not disappear, of course, but disappears from it, evaporates France, which no longer has the strength – the resources, the means to maintain its ties and influence there.
Raising the retirement age is part of the government’s plan to save public finances. France has long exceeded EU security standards – its debt must not exceed 60 percent of GDP. annual GDP. In the case of France, it is already 114%. The country is going through its second decade of economic crisis. GDP will be lower in 2022 than in 2008. This year will not bring any improvement, as the economic outlook for the euro area is extremely gloomy. Analysts at the US bank Morgan Stanley predict that the eurozone economy will contract by 0.2% in 2023. Today’s young generation is poorer and has poorer life prospects than their grandparents.
The infrastructure on the Seine is falling apart. Suffice it to say that France, which uses nuclear energy, is threatened with an energy crisis, and this is because the nuclear power plants, which were the pride of this country, are in a sorry state. More and more power plants are shutting down now and then and France has turned from a major exporter of electricity into an importer. Not even welders. French giant EDF recorded a 30% drop in nuclear energy production by 2022.
This is just one area that shows France’s economic and structural collapse. Like many other countries in Western Europe, especially in the South, it is in a perma crisis. There is not the slightest prospect of getting out of the spiral. The French work the least in the world – 35 hours a week, socialist and communist trade unions are shaking the biggest state-owned enterprises and won’t agree to reforms to ease state finances or cut appalling labor costs. Successive governments have not the slightest authority to make the necessary changes. Barely 28% of the French support President Macron.
In addition, there are insoluble social problems. If someone in Poland says on TV that France is starting to deal with demographic collapse, you should know that this is nonsense, because children are born into immigrant families, who usually do not identify with France. If France is also understood as areas of civilization and culture transferred directly to the Seine from Algeria, Tunisia, Senegal, Mali, Chad, etc., it can indeed be said that France is flourishing and developing. For example, in Saint Denis, just north of the administrative borders of Paris, there are 300-500 thousand (no one knows how many) illegal immigrants from the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Muslim Africa. This city is another symbol of modern France. In Saint Denis there is the most famous basilica of the first daughter of the Church – the cathedral of the former Benedictine abbey, the largest necropolis of the French monarchy. It was there that kings and queens were buried, from Chlodwig, who died in 511, to one of the last Bourbons on the throne – Louis XVIII. The pathetic King of Poland, Henry III of Valois, was also buried there. During the revolution, the mob destroyed the basilica, destroyed the crypts and desecrated the bodies of many rulers, throwing them into limestone ditches. Years later, during the time of the Restoration, much has been restored and saved. Today, the Basilica of Saint Denis is a small French island among the hundreds of thousands of Muslims who live in this city. It is not the bells of the churches of Saint Denis that call the faithful to prayer, but the voice of the muezzins of the minarets.
France is demographically an old country and this is one of the arguments for increasing many pensions. And again we touch the sphere of symbols. Those now retiring at age 62 were born in a country with a colonial empire of over 10 million square miles. Its decline began in 1954 after the Battle of Den Bien Hu in Vietnam. Today, after the colonies, areas of French civilization, there is a memory in the form of time zones. France has the most of them in the world – 12. In addition, Guyana, which is not suitable for life, and islands in the world’s oceans. We ignore the moral judgments of colonialism, we simply establish the fact that those born into an empire retire in a country that is collapsing, plunged into chaos and constantly losing importance.
What has to happen in a country to say that it is not functioning, that it has ceased to function. Pyromancy is divination through flames. The future of France today can be inferred from those who consume Paris. It is a country that, if nothing changes, economic, social and cultural trends are maintained, will collapse in the foreseeable future. Not necessarily with the big bang of another revolution or civil war, which is a real threat, but it will rot, decay like the countries of South America, once rich and resilient like Venezuela or Argentina, and now permanently dysfunctional. We can draw several lessons from the French cases. First, they show which way not to go, what to avoid. All this nonsense about European civilization, about role models, is worth nothing. If someone speaks platitudes about European values, it means that he is an intellectual eunuch. That he has no idea what processes are going on in the Western world. What will happen to its civilization, structures, institutions. That he’s a complex impersonator who can’t make his own way in the world, afraid to admit the truth that idols, unsurpassed role models are just spoiled, dissolute, corrupt, cynical bunglers. His world would collapse if he had no one to monkey with. We are not talking about the French here, but about the elite of this country. The same can be said for Brussels, Germany.
Second, although it sounds cynical, the problems of Western European countries strengthen Poland’s position. Today we must behave and push ourselves on the continent, taking into account the dynamics of processes, what will happen in the future, and not just the current state. As a young pretender who sees a struggling champion and knows he will soon replace him, he now announces his ambitions accordingly, though the latter will have more trophies, medals and wealth from his past appanages for many years to come. He does not wait for the old master to fall, but reaches for new laurels.
