Jean-Benoît's Recent Updates

“France has and will have political and economic problems like any other country. But it works. What makes it work is the harmony between the spirit of the French and the structures they have given themselves, structures that are genuinely theirs.”
Jean-Benoît Nadeau, Sixty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong

“France actually had the first ever pension schemes: the Invalides, a hostel built by Louis XIV and his prime minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert (1619–83), for disabled soldiers.”
Jean-Benoît Nadeau, Sixty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong

“But the past was never erased, probably because there’s just too much of it. Everything in France is built on layers of other things that existed before. The present in France is only a compromise between the past and the present.”
Jean-Benoît Nadeau, Sixty Million Frenchmen Can't be Wrong: What Makes the French So French?
