Déjà Vu…Is it 1968 again?

Wow I woke up this morning and watched French students go crazy in the streets of Paris. French students have gone crazy before, usually for a good cause, at least in their heads. This happened once before, in 1968. This brought to mind other things which happened in 1968.

The United States was at war with a foreign overseas country to protect the National Security of the United States. Traditional allies were not supporting US action, including Canada. A man from Texas was President! Bah too many coincidences.

A Russian satellite state is looking towards the West. Its leaders, puppets of Russia, refuse to allow this to happen. Leaders of the Western movement are quickly arrested. If I see tanks in Minsk, I am gonna start freaking out. I mean, it has only been Spring for a week…

Something else happened in 1968…the Liberal Party, in a great leadership, elected a leader which rallied the party together and went on to lead Canada for 15 of the next 16 years…At least something good happened in 1968...

I thought I'd ask those who actually speak French: Can you rank the candidates on how well they speak French?

Booo trudeau! Yay Tommy Douglas!

If they elect someone like Trudeau, 2006 will be just as disapointing as 1968.

A major mistake Antonio : In 1968, the leaders of the satellite did not only accept reform, they encouraged it; Alexander Dubcek, general secretary of the Czech communist party, tried to implant his "socialism with a human face" before that august month where Russians entered Prague and forced him to surrender.

and then the quiet revolution reached the height of Quebec discontent: the October Crisis emerged. Trudeau claims to have not seen it coming. what foresight! he was obviously a man of great vision.

what do you mean by "in their heads", please qualify that statement.

Christo, are you doubting my knowledge of history...the arrest I was referring to was that of dubcek.

The puppets were those of the communist party in Moscow.

and to you rosemary

I never mentioned the "t-word" because the "t-word" is dead and will not be running in this leadership. I hope whoever wins can lead the aprty to the same kind of success

the fact that the young people are easier to let go will allow more of them to get their door into the workforce...unemployment among youth is at 23% in France

They are rioting against a good law

the "in their heads" appears to be a historical reference. Sorry to rely on semantics..but you have still neglected to answer the question.

furthermore...your reply is tenuous at best. The situation in France is not good..no doubt. But this does not mean that the government legislation is the right solution...it would only serve to worsen the situation by creating a society of underpaid labourers.

neo-liberalism..does not have a human nail..let alone a human face.

Sorry Antonio, I misinterpreted what you said about the Prague Spring (being a frenchie, eh ?). I give you a free ticket, if you want to, to blame law 101 for this.
