French Contempt for the French

It’s the best reason of them all.

Former French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing gives it:

One crucial mistake was to send out the entire three-part, 448-article document to every French voter, said Mr Giscard.

Over the phone he had warned Mr Chirac already in March: “I said, ‘Don’t do it, don’t do it'”.

“It is not possible for anyone to understand the full text”.

By no means must we let the peons have any say in their own government. The Ancien Regime is alive and well. But if no one can possibly understand it, isn’t that the best reason there is to reject it?
