Cost of Appeasement - France

The government of Domenique De Villepan in France is backing down from its common-sense update of labor laws that will cause more jobs for young people.
French President Jacques Chirac announced on Friday he would sign a controversial youth job law despite weeks of protests, but promised it would be amended right away to weaken two of its most disputed reforms. Trade union and student leaders promptly rejected his proposals as insufficient and vowed to press on with their protests, including a nationwide action day next Tuesday.
The anarchists are ready to take advantage of the weakness shown by the appeaser. No-Pasran reports.
"EHESS, the elite center of postgraduate sociology, citadel of the ideology that drives the students who protest the evil CPE, was invaded last Monday. Taking advantage of an open-door policy for all who wished to discuss the nefarious precarious work contract, a crowd of anarchists, underdogs and assorted outlaws slipped in and kicked everyone else out. Those abstract victims of ultraliberalism that EHESS loves to study materialized, and expropriated the expropriators. Dismayed professors carrying trendy Apple computers rushed out of the elegant premises. When the police finally evacuated the squatters five days later, they found the building sacked, defiled, covered with filth and graffiti: Death to Democracy, F -- You, and the inevitable Jewish star."
I want freedom and growth everywhere, in every country. I want France to prosper. I get no satisfaction from their misery. But I can observe that it is self-inflicted. The young complain that they can't get jobs, then riot when changes are made that will increase the employment of the young! They poison themselves then blame George Bush. No they blame the international media.
