Open Letter To The People Of France
What is it with this attitude of going on strike whenever something is about to change in your country? Enough already! Wake the fuck up (Excuse my French)!
The world is going through economic hard times. Every single country is striving to recover from the global financial crisis. France is no exception. Although it's hard for everyone, the truth is that, there comes a time when we all have to make efforts. Why should France and French people be an exception? How can they think that their country will survive without taking into account the realities of our modern world?
French people: wake up! The world is laughing at your country. It is now more known in the world for its passion for strike action than anything else. When foreigners think about France, they don't picture the Eiffel Tower or a nice café in Paris, they just think "a bunch of privileged and lazy people that are demonstrating in the streets 365 days a year". Unfortunately, I must admit that this stereotype has become reality.
People of France: you live in a country that used to be great and influent. It is now a very small, tiny and insignificant country both geographically and economically. The world doesn't give a damn about your domestic politics. Only the French continue to think that France is a great country. They have managed to alienate the world. Unless French citizens stop being full of themselves and acting like spoiled children, their country is bound to become even less significant than it already is. In fact, most developed countries are implementing pension reforms, increasing retirement age for everyone. Why would it be any different in France? How do the French think that their government is going to pay for their pensions? Use magic? The fact that the government is considering such an increase is actually a sign that citizens are living longer and healthier. This is something that people should be happy about. How can they think that the country will be able to finance pensions, health care and everything else if no one is working?
LIFE IS HARD. YOU HAVE TO WORK FOR WHAT YOU GET. STOP THE NONSENSE. IF YOU WANT YOUR COUNTRY TO BE GREAT AGAIN THEN EARN IT!
