In a sick democratic system, if not non-existent, in which European countries are bogged down, each country taking its orders from Brussels, on an ultra-liberal background that removes all power from citizens, we see for example the vote for Macron in the last elections, a deplorable participation rate, elected with 18% of the votes expressed, which makes it anything but a majority, which does not prevent his government from forcing the passage of a whole bunch of laws through the famous article 49.3 while the majority of the population is against the laws passed.
This is the system established by Europe, an ultra-liberalism that is to the detriment of the people, which led Britain to withdraw, and with an inflation rate of over 12% in the Eurozone, it is possible that other countries will follow.
In fact, if Europe exists at a representative level in the eyes of the world, it is very far from being in the hearts of citizens, scalded by barbaric economic policies that have ravaged the economy for the benefit of the rich and industrialists.
In this context, the French government is about to vote on a pension law that nobody wants, that is not necessary and that is very likely to ignite socially in France, to please Brussels, and that will certainly be passed by 49.3, for lack of a majority.
In such conditions, expect very large demonstrations in France in February, March and certainly April, this government being deaf, blind and forms of people totally unable to carry out their mission without showing the worst provocations, which makes the Macron government very similar to what the Trump government was.
For travelers the consequences will be direct with strikes in all means of transportation, and the public sector as a whole, that is, everything that France has in terms of civil servants.
Under such conditions, anti-Europeans have all their chances for the next elections, and they are becoming increasingly numerous throughout Europe.

The French are increasingly leaving the country.

This is what an OECD report from 2021 argues, citing a 6% increase in departures abroad compared to the previous 15 years (see here). Of course, the French migrate mostly to neighboring countries, often for work-related reasons, but what is decisive for these populations is above all the feeling of discomfort felt in France that pushes them to leave in the hope of better days elsewhere. Outside of Europe, Canada and the USA are favored by French expatriates, currently between 5 and 6%, and it is certain that in the coming years migrations will become increasingly numerous.

Indeed, with an inflation rate of 12.8%, an extremely high cost of living and wages that have been stagnant for decades, a tax rate of over 50%, gasoline at 2 Euros per liter, energies that consumers and businesses can no longer afford, which leads to school and business closures, temporarily or permanently for some, not to mention the disguised taxes represented by the thousands of speed cameras that cover the roads and anger the population, expensive highway tolls, freedom of information that no longer exists because the main newspapers are in the hands of industrialists who make and undo policies in France, freedom of speech that no longer exists, censored social networks thanks to agreements between the state and networks… France is becoming less and less attractive to its citizens, not to mention the various social and societal problems that are becoming increasingly anxiety-provoking and a lack of prospects in the years to come, are all reasons that make France unattractive to its citizens. The novelty in these departures to other countries is also that it is not only freshly graduated who represent the migrating masses, but all social categories representing the middle class, are swelling the departures.

Nothing is going well in the Kingdom of France, which nonetheless maintains an outdated image from the 1950s for many foreigners. As long as this image holds, tourists will be present, but for how long?
