Macron gets tough—police applying more aggressive tactics to demoralize the Yellow Vests.

The demonstrations against Macron’s neoliberal regime continue to grow in France, and now the government is clearly raising the ante by applying far more draconian measures to restore “public order”. For the world capitalist system, which is obviously watching the events in France nervously, the outcome may well spell a global uprising against their rule. If the Yellow Vests refuse to submit to Macron’s harsher tactics, NATO is liable to enter the fray with some expeditionary force to put down the rebellion. In which case the people of France face anything from a multinational Thermidorean attack to a White Terror, with newly minted Muscadins collecting rebel scalps as they did during the French Revolution.
