Does Macron have the wisdom to see this?
The government's soft-touch approach to this violence is wrong. We don't live in a world where everyone responds reasonably to reasonable requests.
@EmmanuelMacron has not asked me for my advice, but were he to ask, I'd say: You've reached as many people as you can with appeals for calm and efforts to respond to their demands.
You can't just say you deplore this and wring your hands. Not if you wish to stay in power, anyway.
You're in charge. Act like it. If you can't, step down and let someone else do it. Otherwise, you are handing the most vile demagogues in France a hand-wrapped gift.
