In recent months that the word “Yellow Vests” has become a common term and has presented a different picture of democracy in France to the world public opinion, this is the French people who are more shocked than others in the world; and in a climate filled with ambiguity of power and capability of Elysee Palace for finding solutions to all disputes coming from popular protests in different cities of France, they ask themselves, while significant percentage of citizens of Paris find themselves incapable for quelling the crisis, why the French government should not resign and prepare the ground for a snap election in France in order that the country would not be humiliated more than this among the world people.

In such a condition, the most important measure of French intellectual current comes to the rescue of the government and they conduct polls in pro-government or opposition media and social media to know what is going in the streets of France.
In this relation, French daily Le Figaro which is considered a leading daily for guiding the country wrote an article based on a poll which was conducted based on President Emmanuel Macron’s remarks on finding solutions to put an end to the protests and disputes.
The daily wrote: “President Macron’s measures regarding the protests were not convincing.” In this poll, majority of participants believed that Macron’s proposals do not meet their expectations. Participants in the poll answered the questions based on recent developments in the country. 80 percent of the participants in the poll believed that those proposals are not able to end the “Yellow Vests” movement in France.
Alexis Brezet in his editorial in Le Figaro pointed to some proposals of Macron in his press conference and wrote: “French President Macron was successful in terms of forms of proposals or opinions but there were contradictions in the content of his proposals.”
Leftist French newspaper “Liberation” also wrote: “Except some considerable proposals about retirement, creating comparative system in election and government, Macron’s speech and his other proposals cannot be considered as a twist in his policy after three months of national dialogues which he claimed.”
Director of Liberation Laurent Joffrin in an article wrote: “Nothing will be the same as before, Mr President said. No. The course is maintained, the initial objective reaffirmed: a liberalization of society and the economy, accompanied by useful social measures, but immediately counterbalanced by this desire to work more French, reduce public spending, maintain the removal of the ISF or to restore the borders. The centrist posture, neither right nor left, adopted during the presidential campaign, is once again challenged.”
With such a double-standard in the content of Macron’s proposals, it seems that French President’s intention in such an ambiguous climate has been revealed to the people. Hence, such a step, in setting a vague solution, pushes opposition movement against capitalist totalitarianism to bolster its protests for an indefinite time, and as days pass, the number of people joining the opposition movement is rising.
Economic analysts and experts in the world believe that the era of capitalism has lasted and they introduce socialism as a replacement for saving production and economic hegemony. But this prescription has also been tested and collapsed years ago and its structure for making national economies dynamic has gone aground, and today the world and even France, which to some extent pays credit to social democracy, also seem to be hapless for finding solution by passing the time.
Political analysts also believe that if Elysee Palace fails to find a proper solution for resolving Yellow Vests saga in the next three months, the only option will be nothing but the government to hand in and to hold snap election.
