    I agree with Sangha on this one,in other words,do you have a link?
    Some sort of scientific study?

    I've been to Europe numerous times for business and recipe research,and while it's nice,it sure isn't any Utopia.
    How many times have you been there,just curious?

    So people are really just pissed that they didn't get their way and are now throwing a giant tantrum. Real mature
    They are French. They just need to calm down, and surrender to the inevitable. That shouldn't be hard, considering all the practice they have had at surrendering.

    Oh c'mon let's be real here, this is France, they riot over coffee shortages. They're ENTITLED to riot.

    That said, do the rioters have a legitimate beef? If it's a minority government pushing therough something that goes against the majority of the people, you betcha they do. France is a bit more on the straight democracy side than the US.

    I think these are French descendants of the soldiers who fought at verdun in world war 1. They did not surrender, they fought like men possessed

    Although, I wouldn't want to hold back on that debate. If the debate goes to political and economic power, just as well fight it there too.
