French philosopher Alain de Benoist talks to Hungarian daily Magyar Hirlap about the origins of the yellow vest protests in his country.
Some of the protesters suffer from cultural insecurity – caused mainly by immigration – while others are protesting because of social insecurity
He calls the riot of the yellow vests an event of historic importance, reminding that its support is very high among French society.
Benoist says French President Emmanuel Macron responded too little and too late, and stressed that the people have lost their trust in the political class and the media.
He continues by saying that some of the protesters suffer from cultural insecurity – caused mainly by immigration – while others are protesting because of social insecurity, even if they have a job they can’t make a living.
According to the French philosopher it’s becoming increasingly difficult for nation states to regain their sovereignty, and he stressed that liberalism and democracy are not the same thing.
