The globalist Emmanuel Macron has won in the 1st round of the presidential elections in France ( 23.75%). The leader of the “National Front” Marine Le Pen has 21.53%.
The 2nd round: globalism VS patriotism
The candidates’s programs are diametrically oposed to each over in all spheres: from politics to economics. The leader of “National Front” from the very beginning of her campaign declared that she speaks from the “name of the people” and “in the name of the people (au nom du peuple is the slogan of its election campaign). The main procedure for ensuring the will of the people in the country’s political course is the referendum. Her goal is to restore France’s grandeur, to restore sovereignty in four dimensions: legislative, legal, economic, monetary. In foreign policy, she stands on the positions of realism and considers the sovereignty of the state (territorial, legislative, economic, political, etc.) to be the highest value.
The president, in her opinion, is the guarantor of sovereignty. Her euroscepticism and a negative assessment of France’s membership in NATO and the EU correspond to the people’s political mood. Marine Le Pen today represents the forces of populism, the french people.
Macron represents the opposite political model, the opposite political pole. His doctrine is 100 % anti-populism (= anti-people program). He represents the global financial elites, who are not interested in admission of the people to power. His perception and understanding of the people can be derived from the philosophical concepts of his teachers (Jacques Attali for example). The bearers of liberal enlightenment, of “truth” are the people from the globalist club (world governement), they are always one step closer to the truth than the “unenlightened” (the origins of such a concept are the philosophy of the Enlightenment).
The people is the bearer of archaic, “old”, “regressive”, “anti-progress” paradigm. This is a kind of cargo for moving forward (the name of the movement of the Macron “En marche”characterizes him as a progressist. Forward, not backward? Forward to what? To a new future, to progress, a single unipolar world, and not back to multipolarity , the Westphalian system, national states and traditions?). In one of the speeches, the globalist stated that “there is no French culture, there is culture in France.” Further, he unfolds his thought and adds that “as there is no French culture, so there is no French identity”. For Macron there is no French people, and there is no France as a sovereign country. He sees it as just one of many parts of a single global world of capital that is moving towards a “brighter future”. In foreign policy, Macron is a consistent supporter of European integration. He is supported by Merkel and the heads of the EU are strong (Junker was one of the first to congratulate Macron on his victory).
Declaring himself as a candidate who is not “neither right nor left” – Macron skillfully combines leftist political values (globalization, belief in progress) with right-wing economic (capitalism) in his program.
The end of the era of the «left» and «right»
After the election results were announced, BFMTV’s political observers noted that there exists “quadripartism” in France and there are four main parties and four types of France: France of Macron, France of Le Pen, France of Fillon and France of Mélenchon.
In our opinion, such an analysis is not correct. The results of the elections showed that there are in fact 2 different blocs in France: the French globalists (Macron, who was joined by Fillon) and the French patriots (Le Pen and perhaps Mélenchon, who had not yet spoken out against Le Pen). The left and right forces have completely merged with the system, there is no difference between them. Socialist Hamon, who was for a long time against the law of El-Khomri, called for a vote for the person who lobbied this law – Macron.
The Republican candidate Fillon, critical of Macron, joined Macron. Both the right and the left-wing candidates became the part of the Macron’s team. The split (left/right parties) that existed for several centuries is legitimately and legaly ended.
Mélenchon, are you with globalism or…?
Unlike Fillon and Hamon, Mélenchon did not call on his supporters to vote for Macron or Le Pen. Until now, the situation remains uncertain. Melanchon, who is often called by the liberal press as the left populist, stays near the dangerous border between the system and the anti-system. On the one hand, he is against the EU and globalism.
On the other hand, he stands for the open borders and migration. By combining left-wing economy and left-wing policy in his program, Mélenchon can 1) approach the system (call for a vote against Le Pen) 2) solidify with Le Pen’s on the base of her left economic program (developed in recent years by adviser Le Pen Florian Filippo) or 3) the option of “empty vote blanc” in the second round, which theoretically will give more advantages to Le Pen (by the way, the left candidates Poutou and Artaud have already stated that they will throw empty electoral blancs).
The last battle of Le Pen against the System
The philosopher Alain De Benoist noted that Macron is a phenomenon of “consolidation of the world’s financial elites” in the face of a people awakening from political sleep. Macron is a concept. The concept of anti-populism. When does the anti-populism appears and what is its purpose? Anti-populism arises as a reaction of elites to the emergence of political consciousness among the people. The people of France, under the pressure of the migration crisis, unemployment and the unstable domestic political situation in the country, realized that its interests are not taken into account in political decisions.
Elites are based on their own logic, and between them and the people there is an abyss. The people do not agree with this state of affairs and begin a revolte. The leader of this uprising is Jeanne d’Arc of modern France – Le Pen. She became a real threat to the system already in 2015, when her party won the first place in the first round of regional elections. Between the two rounds, both the left and the right-wing parties called to vote against Le Pen. The system saw in Le Pen a dangerous enemy and competitor.
Macron is the developed by the laboratory of globalism. He is specifically sculpted to be the opposition Le Pen. His creators realized that the population no longer believes in “left” or “right” political forces, and is waiting for something new. His medi picture is following: a 39-year-old smiling banker, a diligent worker, and in general a “decent person” and a good husband. He says that he is the new candidate who wants change, and he has the suggestions to overcome the crisis. The system created him. He was made as an opposition to Le Pen.
Today, the medias, the judicial and administrative system are all working against Le Pen. This candidate is a threat to the system. 7 large Masonic lodges called for a vote against Le Pen, in the center of Paris anti-fascist radicals and representatives of movements financed by Soros go out on the squares to protest against the “extremist” Le Pen, in newspaper we see the publications with such titles: “If Le Pen will become a president, the France will be dead. ”
Today the whole system is against Le Pen. And Le Pen heroically is against the system. Who knows, maybe the strength of the people protest, its revolte against the dictatorship of the elites and the neoliberal tyranny will turn out to be a success?
