The Government and Politics of France?: 12/1/2016 18:15:48

I need to read as much as possible about French politics for a project I'm doing and I'm having a hard time actually finding something updated and informative. It seems for some odd reason most editions on French politics are from the 70s and the system has changed a lot since then.
Any suggestions?

Well, this election is *trés nul*.

You have a far-right Islamophobic Europhile man running against a far-right Islamophobic Euroskeptic woman.

French Fifth Republic:

Gaulism (rightist model for Frenchmen -> Mitterand (socialist model for Frenchmen) -> Chirac (the man who saved France from Le Pen the first time) -> Sarkozy (putain!) -> Hollande (socialist who you want to *not* model yourself after) -> (Hopefully) Fillon (rightist who you *don't* want to model yourself after)

I recommend researching the time when the French Communist party had the most seats!

François Hollande is the most french thing ever.

I mean, he had his bodyguards leave baguettes on his chick's door. Also, his goddamn name just screams "french".

I personally prefer Fillon this cycle. Hollande seems to be the Hoover of France. Would've been a better President if he had lead in a different times.

Basically you can divide their society into 3 Estates : Baguette, Wine and Eurofags. Baguettes just want to not work ever and be hippies. Wines just want to be rich and fancy whilst still not contributing. Eurofags are EU cucks, a cancer of world politics.

^^Come on. Let's not mock the French military.

It's just like associating Germany with NSDAP when nothing related to NSDAP is on topic. It has been 70+ years since the end of Third Reich, Germany-bashing can only lead to a more murderous Fourth Reich which none of us wants to see.

^It's sometimes a good idea to leave a dead issue dead. If you really want to get started with reparations Germans deserve a lot from many countries due to Stalin detaching a lot of territories from Germany and expelling almost all Germans. Germans are already surprisingly patient now. Do you want them to start a war for Stettin/Szczecin?

Germany was completely justified in annexing Austria. However it was the invader when it came to Poland.

^Please do not try to ignite old conflicts. It's almost never a good thing. Leave history behind and get over it. Almost every tribe used to be a bully and almost every tribe used to be subjugated. Almost every country has some land that it can reasonable claim. Just....calm down or people will be killing each other for places such as Dobruja and Alsace forever.

Books on modern politics is pretty much hard, like any political book, they're a lot of the time written by the politicians themselves, so not very neutral or quality information. Still you could try going for those, all the candidates have one book where they say everyone is wrong and the country is doomed, and explain why only they can solve the problem.


Also depends on if you speak french or not, because if you do we have plenty of good quality papers that are definetly good to understand the french politic system:
- Liberation: left leanning
- Le Figaro: right leanning
- Le Monde: centre-left leanning (definetly the best quality one)

All these papers have some stances, but they are still very objective and produce high quality content. I follow all three of them and it keeps me well informed. And frankly, I'd say they're ammoung the best papers in the world.


There's also a France 2 (TV) news at 8pm every day and they talk a lot about France's politics with also a very good content. I like the fact that they talk to all major candidates/politicians and make very though questions to them. Definetly worth watching.
