France Becomes A Giant Pre-School For Adults

Just when you thought the French couldn’t become any more childlike or emasculated, they came up with this:

It would cover men who shout at their wives and women who hurl abuse at their husbands – although it was not clear last night if nagging would be viewed as breaking the law.

The law is expected to cover every kind of insult including repeated rude remarks about a partner’s appearance, false allegations of infidelity and threats of physical violence.

Police are being urged to issue a caution in the first instance, but repeat offenders could face a fine, a restraining order or even jail.
Critics said the measure was a gimmick produced in response to lobbying by feminists and would be impossible to implement.

But French premier Francois Fillon, who announced the law, said: ‘The creation of this offence will allow us to deal with the most insidious situations – situations that leave no visible scars, but which leave victims torn up inside.’

Yes, folks, the French have actually passed a law against “situations that leave no visible scars, but which leave victims torn up inside.” Welcome to France, the world’s biggest pre-school, where “being mean” or not using your “quiet voice” is actually a criminal offense!

When a culture has become so immature that a law like this isn’t considered almost universally ridiculous and a government has become so overweening that it would actually try to implement it, I suspect it’s just a matter of time before that civilization will either have to dramatically change or cease to exist because a nation of children cannot continue on forever.
