French President Emmanuel Macron came to attention recently with a long interview in which he criticized the German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. “AKK,” who is also the leader of the ruling Christian-Democratic Union (CDU) and heir-apparent to replace Angela Merkel, had written in an op-ed for Politico: “Illusions of European strategic autonomy must come to an end: Europeans will not be able to replace America’s crucial role as a security provider.”

You can watch / read the interview (with English subtitles) to get a sense of official thinking by the reigning liberal-globalist wing of French politics, if you are so inclined. There’s not much new in fact.

The interview was more revealing for me in showing some of the new players in French foreign policy and in particular Franco-German relations. The interview was published by Le Grand Continent, a magazine released by the École Normale Supérieure, one France’s Grandes Écoles top universities.

There is evidently high-level support for this para-statal publication, with a highly attractive website and authors representing a wide range of high-level intellectuals. Besides the university and numerous students, various internationalist think-tank professionals and political party staff (mostly Socialist or Macronist, it seems) are involved. The line is decidedly Macronist, with almost Spencerian ambitions of creating an Europe-puissance. Given that the publisher was founded in 2017, one wonders if people close to the president himself are involved.

The interview has been bigged up on Twitter by various Anglo journalists and elements of the German foreign policy establishment. Some of the latter praise was somewhat embarrassing.

The head of the Munich Security Conference and of a policy school in Berlin:

A prominent think-tank analyst:

This publication’s echo in Germany is an indicator of the “pro-French / EU maximalist” wing in German policy, which wants to go along with Macron’s grand designs for “European sovereignty” and “strategic autonomy.” The mainstream German establishment is wary of all this though, being aware of the fact that it will be expected to pay the bill for these schemes.

For instance, many Germans consider that Macron’s ambitions to federalize the Eurozone are but an elaborate ruse to put German taxpayers on the hook to bailout the bankrupt French banking system (“debt mutualization”) and put German economic policy under incompetent Med control.

Le Grand Continent will soon be translated into German, Italian, Spanish, and Polish. But not English, the working language of all EU institutions. The publication is decidedly punchier and has more personality and vision than your standard EU fair, precisely because it is a national and, in particular, French scheme. Anything produced by the EU must go through a series of committees of committees where anything interesting or original will be carefully weeded out one by one by any objecting member. Hence the consistently insipid and vague nature of EU production.

I chuckled when Macron said “The EU has a tremendous amount of non-thought [impensé].”

As to Macron’s general message, there’s not much to say, except a lot of stuff is going on in the world right now innit. He’s alarmed by the decline of postwar liberal international institutions and “a crisis of the universal values borne by these structures.”

What it boils down to: the postwar Western establishment, called “liberal” for lack of a better term, and its values are in decline. This power elite’s influence solidified after 1945 and became hegemonic after 1989, but now is in rapid recession.

My reading: liberal power emanated from actually fairly small, but influential obviously, nodes in North America and Western Europe. (Even Japan can barely be put in this category, it is an ally, not an active player.) In no other part of the world did the assumptions of this coalition come naturally, but only predominated because of foreign influence (imposed by force, cash, or cultural soft power). As the West declines and itself becomes less coherent because of socio-cultural disintegration, so global liberalism is declining.

China, Turkey, Russia, Latin America, etc, don’t care about all these Western liberal-globalist obsessions.

The most telling part of the interview for me is when Macron flags the problem of “unacceptable” growing inequalities within and between countries. He thinks some kind of international cooperation could get rid of these: “Just as socialism could not work in a single country, the fight against this kind of [inegalitarian] capitalism cannot take place in only one country.”

Good luck with that.

Presumably Macron is thinking of the Krugman-Piketty snake oil of equality-through-redistribution in our new open-borders and multiracial context.

People will believe anything if only they don’t have to think.

Macron by the way mentions European demographic decline and the Africanization of Europe and the globe:

Today, we have reached a world population increase of 400 to 500 million people every five years. And above all, this increase shows acute imbalances : if you take the Europe-Africa region, for one European country demographically disappearing, in the same period, one African country appears. We are witnessing a kind of acceleration in the twists of history. . . . All of this also creates a re-conception of the world, of economic capacities, of futures, and obviously also disrupts transnational relations. . . . Africa is part of our societies. We have a part of Africa in all our societies, which also lives in tune. And when I say Africa, I mean Africa and the Mediterranean region in the broadest sense.

Amid all the blabber of policymakers and journalists, these demographic realities are what matters most for the future character of Europe and humanity. These changes are creating literally unsolvable and intractable permanent problems and tensions from a liberal-egalitarian perspective. But when will this be recognized?

European politicians fiddle while their people steadily fade away year after year.

Macron concludes, contrasting the good liberal-globalists to the bad nativist-authoritarians: “Popular democratic sovereignty is a treasure.” Just not on immigration.

  1. Macron wants to be relevant. That won’t happen as he and the rest of Europe allow in millions of unassimilable people from mostly Muslim countries with a mentality and outlook of stone age knuckle draggers. The political class in Europe is committing cultural suicide.

    The imbalances are real enough, but they don’t have to be Europe’s problem. Stop the invasion of low IQ religious mental midgets and stop sending them resources to keep breeding all over Africa and the Middle East.

    The west has been feeding and providing medical care for the 3rd world for decades and all the world has to show for it is an increase in their numbers. These people don’t have the mental abilities and cultural norms to raise themselves up out of poverty even with decades of handouts. It’s time to cut them off and let nature take care of the problem. All the west has accomplished is to increase the problem by subsidizing a monumental increase in their population.

  2. The most infuriating characteristic of the French ruling elite for the last 40 years has been its ideological and emotional overinvestment in everything European, international or multilateral: EU increasingly supranational institutions, the Euro, European defense, the UN, International conventions on whatever, multilateralism, global governance, Paris Agreement on climate….
    All of this is a diversion from the main responsibility of the French ruling class on which it is failing abysmally: ruling France. It is also a pretext for inaction. Controlling immigration: “we need a European response”, Terrorism: “we need a European response”. National defense, Industrial policy, Covid19: “we need a European response”. The European responses will not be forthcoming because Germany, Northern and Eastern European countries rarely agree (even with the Brits gone).
    Macron is the archetypical representative of this ruling elite but the disconnect between the presidential rhetoric and the reality of French power (with a shrinking industrial base largely due to Euro membership, weakening State capacity to enforce public order and immigration law, and runaway deficits) is becoming too obvious to ignore, probably even for Macron himself.

    Why Euro-Africa?

    Why link these two continents – which have *ABSOLUTELY NOTHING* in common, not even a land bridge, – together?
    Apart from the French, no other European nation gives a shit about Africa, or pretends that it’s destiny is entwined with Africa.

    A reality check for the French:

    Your involvement with Africa – which is part of your national inferiority complex regarding England, which humiliated you many many times, and stripped you of the colonies actually *worth* having, dates only from year *1830*.
    A mere pin prick in history.
    It is/was a pure mistake and folly of epochal proportions.
    Just drop it as a dead loss, cut off all ties, forget about it, and move on.

  6. The EU is totally vulnerable to the tribe because of the 12 unelected anti-apostles, almost certainly grand orient, who run it, and who can be picked off without any trouble when most convenient. Macron is just another little puppet who has as much free will as the elasticity of his strings allow. He is so low in the satanic hierarchy he barely rates a mention.

    AKK is pretty much out of the running for Merkel’s succession, the next chancellor will probably be Armin Laschet (incompetent pro-Islamic uber-cuck from North-Rhine-Westphalia), or maybe Bavaria’s Markus Söder (unprincipled opportunist, has tried to adopt an image as competent crisis manager in Corona times, but it’s pretty ridiculous). Doesn’t really matter which one, both will enter into a coalition with the Greens after the next federal elections in fall 2021, which will let even more Africans and Muslims into Germany and increase repression of dissent to new levels.
    All that talk of European “strategic autonomy” is pretty meaningless given the demographic realities ably pointed out in Durocher’s article.

    At least he has some kind of overview. While – as I think of Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, my heart sinks. And sinks. Think of a (decent) mayor of a Palatian city of 100 000 inhabitants: That’s what she is capable of without problems. She tries to lead the CDU, but she has not much of a clue, what that might mean or how that should work out. That already shows her losing her direction. A truly provincial figure lost on the international scene. Often times, she doesn’t even know how to dress in a way that would allow her to feel comfortable. Now – if you compare her to Emmanuel Macron, Victor Orban or Sebastian Kurz or Boris Johnson – – – .

    Well, that boat sailed over 50 years ago. For 50 years we’ve been feeding, clothing, sheltering and providing medical care for people that are so stupid they can’t figure out that having too many children in an area that can’t support the current population in the most important commodity – food, is a strategy that can’t possibly work long term. The people there are now accustomed to the entitlement mentality that somehow the cosmic firmament will provide for them.

    It is therefore, with hindsight, the absolute wrong position to take and we should stop doing stupid things that simply make matters worse over time.

    It’s called tough love. We need to inform these mental midgets that the gravy train is over and force them to realize this by curtailing the west’s activities that have sustained them for decades. People need to starve. As cruel as that may seem initially, long term it saves countless lives of poverty, deprivation, poor education, and a bleak existence.

    In the west’s current state, and in what appears to be an ever worsening position, the west simply can’t afford to keep throwing resources at a growing problem that is 50 years, at least, in the making. It is the bleeding heart attitude that every life is precious that has produced almost nothing in the 3rd world to recommend that attitude.

  13. Sorry, but you’re wrong. The majority of French, and other Europeans, loves their “liberal” National Health Care, free tuition, cradle-to-grave welfare state. They actually wants more of it. Which toads like Macron are disinclined to give them, whatever he may say. The majority of French would be happy with more socialism, not less, in other words. Of course, they’d like to stop the immigration. But, as immigration is part of the plan for the destruction of the welfare state and return to, I don’t know, Louis IV, something pretty oppressive at any rate, these wonderful non-liberals support it (while simultaneously giving it lip service.)

  14. @RoatanBill

    Oh, one of those ancient anti-foreign-aid rants. So hoary the cobwebs lie undisturbed about it like on Miss Haversham’s cake.

    Correction. “Foreign aid” is peanuts. Destroy it and distribute evenly to the US public the money saved, they’d be lucky to get a ten-spot.

    It’s the military that takes all the money. Sorry to disabuse you. It’s the bleeding heart for the military that is the problem.

    The German-Greek philosophy and historian ideas, Panagiotis Kondylis (a close reader of Carl Schmidt) said much the same thing a few years ago in books such as the European Enlightenment and Politics and Man. Once the social group(s) loses its grip on power, then so goes their constellation of values and worldview; which previously, might have seemed self evident and perhaps even universal due to their overwhelming power. The consequence of this is that ideas about how people and society should be organised are just simply the ideas of competing social groups motivated by self-preservation. Nothing more.

    Apart from the French, no other European nation gives a shit about Africa, or pretends that it’s destiny is entwined with Africa.

    Some Nordics have the same fetish. Last year Norway spent US$4,3 (3,62€) billion on official development assistance AKA gibs, mostly on Africans.

    Loony left Brits are the worst offenders e.g., Nelson Mandela statue in London and Glasgow University’s £20 million slave trade reparations fund.

    Labour Party MP Wes Streeting once suggested putting Mandela or a Kamala Harris-tier Jamaican mulatto on Bank of England £50 notes.

    Your involvement with Africa – which is part of your national inferiority complex regarding England, which humiliated you many many times, and stripped you of the colonies actually *worth* having, dates only from year *1830* .

    They also lost wars to Prussians, National Socialists and more recently the Vietnamese. Even Germany, the so-called partner, is way bigger and effectively bankrolls the EU project.

    To combat (((American))) culture French elites have also been courting third world countries through France 24 (CNN clone) and organizations like Alliance française (The French Alliance).

    Merz and Röttgen won’t be chancellors imo, they don’t have a sufficient power base (and Merz is seen as problematic anyway because of his image as a heartless capitalist who enriched himself through dubious means during his work in the financial sector). I agree about their Atlanticism, but imo a CDU/CSU-Greens coalition will probably be more Atlanticist than Merkel’s government has been anyway. The Greens are pretty anti-Russia and have been demanding a stop to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project for years, with their leader Robert Habeck uncritically adopting the “Russia is murdering innocent civilians in Syria” line a few years ago. With Trump gone they won’t have any issues with lining up behind what liberal hawks in Biden’s administration will come up with.

    In Fiscal Year 2017 the US spent $50 billion in foreign aid. Distribute that to every American and you get about $1,400 each. Make it payable only to adults and you’re looking at $2,800 each. Give it only to those who paid taxes and we’re looking at a nice $6,000 in everyone’s pocket. Better in mine than theirs, I’d say. And a bit more than your “ten spot”, right?

    A. 99% of that “aid” is weapons.

    “According to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS), which uses the broadest definition of aid [PDF], including military and security assistance, total spending was roughly $49 billion in 2016, the last full fiscal year analyzed.”

    “As a percent of gross domestic product (GDP), however, U.S. aid spending ranks near the bottom of all developed countries.”

    B. You believe some statistics you looked up on the internet.

    C. I take it back. You’re not a boob. You’re a liar. Otherwise known as a statistician.

    “Opinion polls consistently report that Americans believe foreign aid is in the range of 25 percent of the federal budget. When asked how much it should be, they say about 10 percent. In fact, at $39.2 billion for fiscal year 2019, foreign assistance is less than 1 percent of the federal budget.”

    I don’t know what the Total Security Law refers to.

    The anti-separatism law is a vague attempt to eliminate forms of Islam deemed unacceptable to the French State. For the centrist Macron, the point is to attract right-wing ethnocentric voters (and perhaps some left-wing secularists). The practical effect will probably be annoy the growing Muslim community and consolidate them as a parallel society with its own distinct values and group pride.

I read couple of days ago about his deadline to Muslim organizations to align their values with Republican values. I immediately thought what would happen if they simply didn’t do anything. I think he can cry to his wife. Many leaders with different ideas have tried to do what he wants to do. There is one solution to solve the problem albeit with different methods but it’s the only one. Since EU leaders don’t have a will (probably power as well) to do it, they will continue to increase their tolerance for Islam in exchange for votes. Also, as final note, the goverment implemented headscarve ban, I think he should look at what happened in Turkey when it was implemented (It didn’t go well as you can see today.). The fate of France/Western Europe will unfortunely similar to what happened secular minorities in Muslim majority countries with a weird combination of modern day South Africa, so it will be worse than both.

    It’s even simpler and more basic than that.

    The default (Economist) position of the political elites of western nations is anit-whiteism. Blatant unashamed naked anti-whiteism.

    The corollary of that is black/brown worship.

    Ergo, expect the present anti-white political settlement of western governments to continue and ratchet up year by year. This inexorable trend to will run simultaneously with the ongoing diminution of the proportion of ethnic indigenous Europeans in western nations.

    There will be no arresting or reversal of this trend, which is basically, ‘tectonic’ to use the geologists’ jargon.

    The degenerate scumbag who had underage sex with a mother-like woman! A perfect reflection of the degenerate euRapean evilisation, which finds such abominations quite normal.

    for people that are so stupid

    There are different forms of human stupidity. One such utter stupidity is as you so eloquently put it.

    Another egregious example I can give are of those degenerate morons who put faith in mangods, and other puke-inducing paganisms (what have we… some cannibalistic “eucharist,” that kind of thing).

    Faith that their polytheist gods (father/son/mother) are human-like?! Such an abominable belief system which will lead these morons into an eternity of the most tormenting burn (especially the most rabid ones). Sheesh, who would be so stupid?

    But, I am sure you and your evil kind being so brilliant, would never fall for such stupidity, yeah?

  51. Europe is just a bunch of puppet states of the US since 1945. It doesn’t matter if they are within or without the EU. The UK is not less of a puppet because of Brexit.

    This is why ‘strategic autonomy’ is laughable. Nobody takes the puppet seriously. You only ever go to the source of the power if you want something done.
