Mob Rules in France

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

By Debi Ghate:



By withdrawing proposed legislation designed to grant French employers slightly more freedom to hire and fire employees--a right that in a truly free society employers would possess without the blessing of special legislation--France has more fully subjugated itself to mob rule.



Governments of free nations are supposed to protect the individual rights of their citizens--no matter whether ten people or a million threaten to trample them. By caving in to the protestors' cries and screams, the French government has completely abandoned its key function and declared that, if you can be loud and demanding enough, you can decide what the laws of France should be, no matter whose rights are violated. France continues to abandon individual rights, and as result, it can expect more riots, protests and violence as the mob learns that it rules.
