Nearly a third of the French people voted for the Front National. I do not like its political alternative but leftist parties miss political alternatives. They work together with social-democrats and do not advance ideas how to get a different and better society.
We cannot expect that social-democrats or conservatives improve the life of common citizens very much. They are regulated by money, by the wish of the 1% to get still more money.
The Front National has some independent ideas. For example about its opposition to the massive intrusion of refugees in our society. We know already that many imported Moroccan or Turkish people do not want to be integrated. That makes society uneasy.
Why are so many foreigners coming to our countries?
In the first place because Western European countries are rich and people get a better life than in their own country.
In the second place because Western powers throw bombs on common people and support unattractive dictatorial regimes that hurt the interests of the 99% so that common citizens prefer to become refugee.
The Front National gives an alternative that I do not like. But on the left I do not see any party that gives a better political alternative. Leftist parties do not propagate ideas how to break down the money and power of the 1% to promote more independence and a better life for the 99%. They are too much involved in making small improvements. They support the warmongering policy of the sitting powers that use untouchable planes to kill many common citizens in foreign countries.
The left should learn from the Front National. Propose alternatives, advance independent ideas and stop being involved in the bad policy of the establishment. Make the 99% clear that there are real alternatives. The first step is to break the bonds with social-democrats, the second to start an attack on the too rich 1% who in the background propagate that money reigns instead of the interests of the 99%.
The 1% are hardly attacked. There are some attacks on groups as the Front National. But these people belong also to the 99% and are needed in the struggle against the greatest danger to human society, the existence of a 1%. The differences between leftist and rightist common people is less important than the differences between the 99% and the stealing 1% who live in a complete different world.
