Recently, I wrote about french protesters shutting down France and destroying Paris. This is all due to the fact that Sarkozy is asking citizens to work two more years to receive their pensions. Apparently, someone needed to be an adult and explain that it is impossible to sustain a system where people receive five weeks vacation, produce very little and earn a pension at age 60. The math just doesn’t work.
Well, I was surprised to see Ana Kasparian of “The Young Turks” enthusiastic about the French protest. In the video below, you’ll notice that she says nothing about the sustainability of the system. Instead, she seems to be thrilled that these people are “fighting for their rights.” Does she ever consider that the money has to come from somewhere, which results in it just being other people’s money?
As with most Leftist ideas, there is no consideration whatsoever about whether the policy works. To Ana, she certainly feels good about it, and with the Left that is all that matters.
