Talking about a Revolution By Richard Miller

     Leftist musicians have fantasized about revolution, but over in France, a great whack of the population see revolution as the only hope of sorting the Great mess out:

“A newly released survey has claimed that nearly four out of every ten French believe that a full-on revolution is the best way to solve the country’s political problems. The poll, which was taken by polling firm IFOP, shows that 39 percent of French surveyed said that a revolution was needed to effect real change in the country, a figure much higher than elsewhere in Europe, Atlantico reports. In comparison, only 20 percent of Germans agreed that revolution was a viable political solution, and the number was even lower for Austrians and Poles, at just 14 percent. Consulting director at IFOP David Nguyen commented on the results, saying, “The first thing to say is that this is an absolutely spectacular number. Four in ten consider that a revolution would be a good solution: even if we do not know exactly what they put behind this word, it is the mark of a radical presence very present in the society.”

“What allows us to say that this is an important rate is that this figure is much higher than in all the other European countries that we tested,” he said. Nguyen said that the numbers reflect the broad support for the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement, adding: “The government cannot, therefore, bet on a major shift in opinion towards yellow vests, simply because their social demands will always be legitimate for a whole section of the population.”

     I imagine that if a similar survey was conducted for Australia, the results would be very different with the number of people supporting the revolution being 0.00001 percent. Wait …  if the revolution was a communist one, well the Left would have to go for that, maybe even cracking the French high figure.
