The French Abstention

In his City Journal column, Theodore Dalrymple summarizes the results of recent French regional elections, and emphasizes the utter apathy of most voters in the twilight days of our feeble, morally bankrupt, and degenerate democratic regime.

    Well, we’d all better recover from our apathy. The freedoms bought with the blood of a million young soldiers are circling the drain as despots and their well-meaning Useful Idiots below them take advantage of our slumber to bring us the next Red Revolution.
