World News: The Yellow Vest Movement Showing Signs of Fading

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

What will remain of the movement of the Yellow Vests? No one can say it, but the current wilting of the movement finds its origins in the absence of political structuring able to ensure its durability.

What happens to the movement of Yellow Vests? While the XVII Act has gathered only 28,600 demonstrators throughout the territory, some are now wondering about the reasons that explain the eradication of a movement that will remain historic both in its form and in abundance of claims that this one has borne.

And it is a fact, since the first event organized on November 17, 2018, the number of participants has inexorably dropped, fall obscured by the various violence committed during meetings in Paris or held in the region.

This is a first embryo of response likely to explain the loss of speed and popularity of the movement: the acts of vandalism or violence generated by thugs wearing Yellow Vests heavily damaged the movement when it was not about Vests Authentic yellows who have indulged in violence.

Complexity and Logic

Another reason is the weariness of some Yellow Vests, whose convictions and commitment have been undermined by the excesses of the movement, without taking into account the violence, although these have played a significant role, where there was no real logic involved. sometimes totally opposite claims.

Another possible explanation is the establishment of the Great National Debate, which allowed some people to express themselves, either at the communal level or before the President of the Republic, Grand Debate, not devoid of criticism, but who had the merit of highlighting, by the proposals, the complexity that supposes the management of a state like France and especially the difficult solutions to generate to solve the problems.

All these reasons can explain the agony of the movement, which is now struggling to find a viable and popular cause. And perhaps this is the main reason for the movement's loss of speed: its lack of political logic (understood here in the Greek sense of the term, that is for the sake of the general interest) and clear and defined causes.

The movement has, from the outset, made many demands but taking care more to occupy the roundabouts than to clarify and refine a speech that to be audible, credible and sustainable should necessarily be structured and not to be like a vast, all-around fair where demagoguery disputed with rampant populism.

History and Revolutions

Thus, advocating for the establishment of a Citizens' Initiative Referendum (RIC) is a sensible elective proposal, but in a democracy where regular electoral meetings are marked by very high rates of abstention, is it reasonable to believe that the organized RIC would mobilize more than the polls provided by the Constitution?

This is in no way a rhetorical question and everyone will bring their own answer but it is clear that the movement of Yellow Vests crashed on the lack of political or social line breaking with the prevailing classic doxa in the management of public affairs.

Now, and history, eternal recourse, has proved it many times, sir the street is the origin of many revolutions, it can not emancipate itself to come to an end of a structured political expression able to bring the claims defended.

In wanting to detach oneself from political and union structures, arguing for a frenzied apoliticalism and an intellectual independence detached from all ideologies or all models, whether they are of liberal or Marxist essence, the movement has lost all credibility. to end up becoming above ground.

Now remains to know what will be the future of this movement that in a few years will be subject to the patina of history, the exercise of memory and the risk of forgetting?

It is to be feared that in a popular extension, Yellow Waistcoats and Great National Debate will be placed in the same chapter, one explaining the other, in order to prevent the original movement from being lost in the limbo of History.
