French Government Bans Outdoor Events in a Heatwave Because They Don't Trust the People to Take Care of Themselves

This is because too many government officials get drunk on their own power. Sure, they may think they’re acting out of benevolence because they condescendingly think that they know better than the peons in their city, state, or country do. We’re currently seeing this in France, where a heatwave has led the government to ban outdoor events.

“Outdoor public events have been banned in an area of France as a record-breaking heatwave sweeps across Europe,” reports the BBC. “Concerts and large public gatherings have been called off in the Gironde department around Bordeaux. On Thursday, parts of France hit 40C [104° F] earlier in the year than ever before, with temperatures expected to peak on Saturday.”

This is the way you treat someone if they are your responsibility. Say, as a parent to a child. When you relinquish this much power to the government - then they gain the right to tell you what to do.

Not surprised. Only markets for white sheets are France for their flags and the KKK. One started by democrats and the other are just cowards. You decide which.

We live in a world of 20, 30, 40 and 50 year old children now. :sshrug:
There’s a line in the first Avengers movie where Loki claims that humans CRAVE subjugation. That they’d rather be ruled than suffer the illusion of freedom.

To which many of us said, Loki, you need to get out more. People throughout history have shown they would do ANYTHING to be free.

But there are definitely those out there. They’ve been infantilized to NEED someone to parent them - for life.

When I was in that cult, one of their frequently expressed problems was, lack of maturity and leadership among the young men. And I grew weary of telling them the plain, obvious reason. They were keeping them children by running their lives and forcing dependency.

The same is true in our nation. Keep them dependent and you’ll have a nation of immature adults.
