Macron's Victory is a Win for the 21st Century

Democracy failed in America last November.  Great Britain is teetering. France was at the brink.

Finally, a win for the people who are not stupid and angry – the people who do not want to destroy civilization as we know it, as we want it for our children.

How nice that it is Europe – France specifically – that saved civilization from collapsing entirely.  With 65% of the vote, France said definitively that open economic borders are civilized and important and that the far right is a cancer on the world that must always be defeated.

The U.S. let the world down.  So too did Britain.  Viva La France!!!

    You cannot compare France's election to either the US one or Brexit. Le Pen is clearly linked to neo-nazi all over Europe - there are just too many articles and pictures that proves it to post a link here. She's many steps ahead of Trump in terms of evilness / stupidity. If Le Pen had not been her father's daughter and part of Les Republicains or a new right-wing party things could have played out differently.
