Daily reminder French culture is literally the only western culture worth preserving or learning about. Based as fuck in anti bourgeois pro working class music and art. Post colonial France was only of the best treaters of the former colonies, interesting many immigrants from the African former colonies into their culture.

I was curious how the French managed to avoid going full classcuck like most other Western countries.

Literally prevent their former colonies from accessing the vast majority of their wealth, requiring them to keep it in french controlled banks

Read "The True Life" by Badiou, don't be so easily mesmerized by the revolutionary tradition - you are talking about a nation as completely ensconced in modern capitalist hegemony as any




Yes thats why they genocided more than a million people in Algeria
Helped the overthrow of proggresive forces in their ex colonies (such as Sankara)
And most importantly do pic related

Portugal is the only non really classcucked European country (and maybe grecce)

yes, it is a first world country built up by america.

Lol, France's problem is their ultra-socialist system. They basically made it so it's impossible to fire government employees, you get taxed at 60% or higher of income, and if you're unemployed they pay you like 80% of you salary for the next 5 years even if you don't work. They give you more or longer unemployment if you have a family too…there's no incentive to work, so all the rich leave France and Belgium and they enter the vicious cycle where the only way to pay for the lost wealth is by raising taxes, which makes more wealthy people leave and workers stop working. You fucking wide eyed little socialist children are delusional

Not five years, 2 years only if you manage to bullshit your Pôle Emploi advisor (and you need to work 2 years non stop before that) about how it's hard to find work. In election times, watch for your ass because they're gonna fire you for no reason to down their unemployment rate. 80% of your wage is about to change Macron to lower it to the minimum wellfare (600E)
Income is also gonna change it will be based on your real estate (or land holding ? sorry bad english) so if you inherited of a house in coastal France You will be throw out because tourism make the price go up so more tikkyty taxes for you and since you work with minium wage you have to sell it. Also the piggies will obviously pay less because not based on income.

Socialism is when the government does things!!!

En français, stp mec


France has a shit culture.The Basques and Celts have a much better culture.

nearly every "socialist" country raising taxes on the middle class is totally just a coincidence friends

I'll support the French when they actually manage to win a war against Germany
Also whenever they stop their neocolonial imperialism in Sub-Saharan Africa

Too late to preserve those. But what specifically is so great about those cultures?

Because most self-proclaimed socialist parties are actually social-democrat.

end your existance

Nah. Get runnover frenchie.

You're a fucking retard my man

No, you are.

The "middle class" is for the most part still the part of the working class in relation to the MoP

France definitely practice a form of soft-colonialism on its former colonies (where do you think our cheap uranium comes from ?), but the "colonial debt" is a hoax. International law prevents states to tax other states.
That said, yes, countries using the CFA franc have to put 50% of their currency reserves on an account in the French National Bank (65% for the comorian franc), supposedly to guarantee its stability. France doesn't spend this money in any way.
The CFA franc is the only currency inherited from a colonial system to still be in use nowadays. It is also printed in France, and has a fixed exchange rate with the euro. But from what I've gathered, Africans still have the choice to switch to a different currency if they want to.

Anyway, this is not to say that everything is great for Africans since the decolonization. It is obviously not, and the part about dictators as well as the Chirac quote are indubitably true. It's just that this meme is inaccurate, has absolutely no sources and even below the standard of your average Holla Forums infographic.

Don't worry, Macron is taking care of everything for you.

You beat me to it. Death to The Eternal Croissant.




Fuck off with your fetishism and muh guillotine
Every single Western culture (except thr worst excesses of Merica ) is worth preservibg

I'm beginingto think you're just here to make an argument for $trasserism

From what I've gathered, yes, they technically can : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CFA_franc#Changes_in_countries_using_the_franc
There is actually a debate on whenever they should change or not right now, and Macron said "well, if you are unhappy, go on and create your own currency" (and of course, there is an element of pressure in this statement, but still) : rtbf.be/info/economie/detail_faut-il-garder-le-franc-cfa-juge-desuete-la-monnaie-est-au-coeur-de-la-polemique-en-afrique?id=9708143

If you have any counterpoint, bring it on, but a smug smiley is neither a source, nor an argument.

Are you dumb as shit? Educate yourself you ignorant fuckwad.

Re: France's client & Qaddafi's gold

1. A high ranking official on the National Libyan Council states that factions have developed within it. In part this reflects the cultivation by France in particular of clients among the rebels. General Abdelfateh Younis is the leading figure closest to the French, who are believed to have made payments of an unknown amount to him.
Younis has told others on the NLC that the French have promised they will provide military trainers and arms. So far the men and materiel have not made an appearance. Instead, a few "risk assessment analysts" wielding clipboards have come and gone. Jabril, Jalil and others are impatient. It is understood that France has clear economic interests at stake. Sarkozy's occasional emissary, the intellectual self-promoter Bernard Henri-Levy, is considered by those in the NLC who have dealt with him as a semi-useful, semi-joke figure.
2. Rumors swept the NLC upper. echelon this week that Qaddafi may be dead or maybe not.
3. Qaddafi has nearly bottomless financial resources to continue indefinitely, according to the latest report we have


On April 2, 2011 sources with access to advisors to Salt al-Islam Qaddafi stated in strictest confidence that while the freezing of Libya's foreign bank accounts presents Muammar Qaddafi with serious challenges, his ability to equip and maintain his armed forces and intelligence services remains intact. According to sensitive information available to this these individuals, Qaddafi's government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver. During late March, 2011 these stocks were moved to SABHA (south west in the direction of the Libyan border with Niger and Chad); taken from the vaults of the Libyan Central Bank in Tripoli.

This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French.franc (CFA).

(Source Comment: According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy's decision to commit France to the attack on Libya. According to these individuals Sarkozy's plans are driven by the following issues:

a. A desire to gain a greater share of Libya oil production,

b.Increase French influence in North Africa,

UNCLASSIFIED U.S. Department of State Case No. F-2014-20439 Doc No. C05779612 Date: 12/31/2015

c. Improve his intemai political situation in France,

d. Provide the French military with an opportunity to reassert its position in the world,

e. Address the concern of his advisors over Qaddafi's long term plans to supplant France as the dominant power in Francophone Africa)

On the afternoon of April 1, an individual with access to the National Libyan Council (NLC) stated in private that senior officials of the NLC believe that the rebel military forces are beginning to show signs of improved discipline and fighting spirit under some of the new military commanders, including Colonel Khalifha Haftar, the former commander of the anti- Qaddafi forces in the Libyan National Army (LNA). According to these sources, units defecting from Qaddafi's force are also taking a greater role in the fighting on behalf of the rebels:

Is there anyone that loves the French besides French people and brain dead liberals?

Everytime I hear douche it makes me think of French and everytime I hear French it makes me think of douche.


Why are those languages great? Interesting maybe, but most Celtic languages have no literary tradition besides Irish and that came to a halt after the medieval period. Basque has none. They're both dying out too, what the fuck user.

I'm anglo and a communist though

Prince Gwammi Mufatsa?



No wonder you suck.

Basque is a pre-Indo European languages and Celtic languages are very interesting. There languages which are worth preserving.

This isn't Holla Forums. Learn to post not like a 15 year old overdosing on Adderall if you want to be taken seriously.

Regarding the email, yes I reckon that it was one factor that leaded to the death of Qaddafi, and it doesn't really surprise me.
But there is more than this : Sarkozy was accused of taking a sum of money from Qaddafi for his campaign that was way more than the legal amount allowed, and that's what the point (c) was probably about, as well as the disdain for Qaddafi from the media and public opinion, which was apparent when he was invited at the Elysée and was a widely discussed event at the time.
Let's not forget the point (a) too : everything runs on gas. Finally, France has one of the best military in the world, so Libya was no match for Sarkozy's wrath/

Anyway, as I said, they can technically do it, not that France will offer them unicorns on a sliver plate if they actually do it. Also, if Africans decide to change currency, we can probably only hope that it would actually work through a coordinated effort, because there is no doubt France will meddle with the governments involved if only a few isolated countries decide to do so.
Yes, the French government behave with Africa in same way as the US with Latin America and the Middle East, and I never said otherwise. It's not because I was born in this country that I am an apologist for everything the Parisian faggots in suits do.
And in my opinion, you should kys faggot.

Then why is it?

In which ways am I an apologist in this case ? What do you want me to tell you ? Are you a boring 3rd worldist redditor I shouldn't have bothered to engage with in the first place ? Do you want me to say "France is evil, KILL ALL FRENCH PEOPLE" so you can feel good about having superior morals compared to most counterrevolutionary plebs in the comfort of your white American suburbia ?

I'm giving you all the informations I can gather and translate them to show you that it's not wise to take an unsourced meme at face value, and that reality is more complex than your Unruhe-tier meme opinions. I mean, this isn't Holla Forums or /r/socialism, for God's sake.

So how would one go about switching currency from French colonial bucks? Asking for a friend.

Est-ce que j'ai l'air d'un putain de chef d'État Africain ? J'en sais rien moi. J'ai juste dis que c'était techniquement possible. Putain, Madagascar l'a fait 10 ans après son indépendance, donc c'est possible. Maintenant, bouge toi le troufion et montre moi un article de loi qui empêche concrètement les Africains de changer de monnaie, ou va te faire foutre, parce que l'affaire Kadaffi, ça allait au delà du franc CFA, comme je te l'ai dit en .
Oui le gouvernement Français veut protéger ses intérêts, qu'est ce que tu veux que je fasse ? Que je m'autoflagelle en chat privé dans une webcam ?
Hé bien dans ce cas là, je te conseille d'aller niquer ta mère la pute.

Merde, je voulais dire "devant", bien entendu
