Discontent for dummies

Stworzone przez Gość dnia 22 lt. 2019

A few months ago, our president seemed positively shocked when people started wearing funny attire, blocking crossroads and roaming the boulevards yelling blue murder at him. It rather seems to me the writing had been on the wall for quite some time. Then again, maybe he doesn't listen to the same kind of music as me.

Living in a country led by a flabbergasted CEO while jacked off people mill around in the street every weekend is a bit of a drag, I can tell you. This really has to stop! I've been thinking for a while of a way to restore social peace. And then it struck me.
Surely things would soon get better if the higher ups got at least a notion of what goes through the minds of all these annoying complainers all over the world?

However, building a summary of worldwide causes for discontent is a daunting task.
That's why I decided to call upon your help, my fellow LT users.

Here are the rules of the game:
- Pick a song dealing with social issues. The kind that might eventually drive people into the street.
- Select a few lines of the lyrics that might give an idea of the issue (these busy people would want some kind of executive summary, you see).
- Provide an English translation if possible (your own or one from the existing versions)

- As long as new suggestions keep coming, I'll limit the entries to one song per author, just to keep it as varied as possible. You can suggest more than one song of the same author, I'll try to add them once the list stabilizes.

Come on folks, that's for the greater good.

Retribution is coming your way,
for the people reclaims its rights.
You really took us for a ride,
the ride is over, ye mighty kings !
you will no longer lead us anywhere,
we will lead you to the scaffold,
for the law is now in our hands !

The iconic song of French revolution, Suggested by [@Jadis]

A sentimental crowd, we crave ideals
drawn to stars, sails, nothing but trade-free stuff
A sentimental crowd, just see the way they talk to us
The way they talk to us...

I hang up and grab my keys to go and check the mail. Let's see, what do we have here?
A loving letter from the unemployment insurance telling me I'm broke. That's a rather posh start!
Pompous middle-class twats rehearsing United Nations' waffle chatting about famine while fixing makeup on their pretty faces
"We are infested with riffraff!"

Something's amiss yet again, and yet again we're in a pinch. More bills and nothing to pay them.
Stuck in my throat, a lump of this food paid for with a generous loan.
We are loudly told how wonderful our life is, and the only thing we need is a bit more activity.
In a country where prices rise by the day and only wages show an impressive stability.

A rejection, as usual. "Don't take it personally!"
On her way back, a man on the bus says:
"They all just want to be lazy, have an easy life at our expense!"
She gets off the bus, she'd rather walk

I took her to a supermarket. I don't know why, but I had to start it somewhere. So it started there.
I said, "Pretend you've got no money."
And she just laughed and said, "Oh, you're so funny."
I said, "Yeah? Well, I can't see anyone else smiling in here."

Let the President answer a higher anarchy
Strap him with an AK-47, let him go fight his own war, let him impress daddy that way
No more blood for oil, we got our own battles to fight on our own soil.
No more psychological warfare to trick us to thinking we ain't loyal
If we don't serve our own country we're patronizing a hero.
Look in his eyes, it's all lies

The terrorists have ruined our industrial formation,
Our culture, agriculture, our human medicine
They laid the whole mishmash into the education
And stabbed right in its back the manufacture.
They managed to make all the roads bumpy in no time
They closed the school but opened a new church instead…
What? Those were not the terrorists who did this shitfest?
And who were they? Don’t give a fuck, block Telegram.

Now for all those who stayed warm and comfy in their offices, computing the yield of the war they had wished for; for all the fat cats, all the cuckolds who drag their fat bellies through life, recounting their bloody pennies, for all those I will erect the memorial that suits them.
With the birch rod, the whip, with my feet and my fists, with words that will slap on their wrinkles and fat jowls brands of shame and filth.

Some good people said it is a sin to live at liberty;
our fate is to endure and suffer and lay down our lives in the field.
A hangdog waltz plays from all directions, no way to escape it.
A hangdog waltz, a disease of the soul.

Grebenshikov and Akvarium have many beautiful protest songs.
Many could have made it into this collection, but I find this one especially moving

Some get power and pleasure,
Some get beggar’s bag and prison,
And I can’t get over this pain:
My country has gone mad,
And I can’t help it at all.

With their buildings that make you want to vomit
Who open on purpose at times when no one can come

Goodbye politics, talking about it would be a waste of my time

Can I just ask, what exactly is going on in france right now?

ingirumimusnocteingirumimusnocte    niedz., 24/02/2019 - 00:22

Opinions on the subject vary wildly. I can only give you mine. In no way an exact account, just the point of view of what Macron would call:
- a guy unable to cross the street to find a job
- a lazy, cynical extremist
- a guy who is nothing
- a guy who doesn't own a 3 pieces suit because he's too lazy to work (and looks like a dick in his holed T shirt)
- a guy who expects everything done for him, on whom the State wastes tons of money
- an unyielding Gaul oblivious to the notion of progress

The official speech tends to present the Yellow Jackets as rebels without a cause. There is much talk about inequalities of all sorts (country vs cities, rich vs poor) and a feeling of the ordinary citizen being let down, ignored and patronized by the higher ups.
Much ado about "extremists" trying to take over the movement too. Then again, anything that does not conform to the ubiquitous liberalistic view of the world tends to fall into the "extremist" category.

If you ask me, it's simply class struggle coming back with a vengeance.
This is certainly not about whatever taxes on fuel, this is about a country that has ignored the nature of its social structure for 40 years too many.

We've been living for 40 years in a country where 30% of the population perceived itself as the whole country. The less fortunate 70% could be content with the tremendous increase in living standard in the first decades following WWII, but that stopped around the 80's. Since then reality has been slowly reasserting itself, despite the best efforts of the dominant class to sweep the problem under various rugs.

The gaping hole left by the uprooting of the Marxist theory was patched up with all kinds of scraps and junk. "Upper France vs Lower France", "Social Divide", "Multicultural Society" or this obscene "Social Market Economy" the EU dared define itself as. What a load of rubbish.
Liberals tried to sell us the end of history and shot politics through the head. Now politics are back from the dead, and they have quite a score to settle.

The liberals seem to perceive themselves as the Roman Empire surrounded by various tribes of barbarians. I rather see the upper middle class rediscovering the existence of these uncouth peasants, workers and lowly white collars who are presented with a living standard that becomes more unachievable by the day.

While maybe 30% of the population still can enjoy the good life with rewarding jobs, prestigious social status and enough money to afford holidays in the sun, organic tomatoes in winter and supposedly smart gizmos, the rest is facing various issues like jobs becoming more humiliating, unfulfilling and pointless by the day, constant fear of unemployment, severe drops in spending power and the effect of budget cuts on infrastructures.
Not to mention the absence of any kind of meaningful plan for the future, except more of Bigmouth's good old TINA potion.

As Macron brazenly favoured the rich with this emblematic 5 billions € tax cut and pestered the poor with this petty 5€ social spending cut, he couldn't help but drop one patronizing remark after the other. Nothing but the good old fashioned class contempt of the bourgeoisie toward the working class, expressed with such a spontaneity that one can't help but wonder whether he even realized the damage he did.

This humiliation boiled into resentment and anger, that eventually snapped right back into the smug face of our flabbergasted CEO Regular smile

All this on the backdrop of various worldwide issues that seem to upset quite a few people.
Yellow jackets or not, fuses seem to blow all over the world at an alarming rate lately.

Since more than 30 years I am following and observing the development of the french society and politics and I constate a regular decline in all ways, it is a pity. The main problem imo is the discrepancy that France believes still to be a "grande nation" with nuclear power and the might to send armytroups worldwide on one hand and on the other hand there are a lot of people politically toooo correct who believes they should impose their will to their neighbors, they are infantilizing the men and overregulating the daily life. And in same time the discrepancies between a few bigger cities and the wide countryside grow and grow. You'll find in vaste regions a very restricted infrastructure, the income is generally not only unequally distributed between rich and poor but also between Paris and the rest of the country. France seems to me like the US, but instead two or "developed" regions east and west in the US) there is only one- Paris. The juridical system is based on Napoleon and the penal code is the only thing by which the government believes to handle some problems. I am wondering that the (rural) has not opposed beforehand,
but I think all the might is with the Enarches (is a restricted circle of absolvents of adminstrative high schools https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89cole_nationale_d%27administration)

What happened against the one said to be a Jew in a yellow vest protest is not due to every day French people but special other guys… That man has already being chased from a meeting around Bastille Paris some months ago.
That illustrates the gap between intellectual sitting on a chair and people fighting for their very basic life. The Greek economist who went at that same place was welcome. Behind him was the suffering of Greek people due to the same untrue financial rules to keep great capital more healthy….
Don’t forget we are some professionals to have alerted of what was going on even C. Lagarde FMI….
Even some clever people of the Financial Times… Money is due to be invested not speculated upon.

Macron president thought to be a genius in giving back a lot of money to great capital; he worked in a bank and I worked at stock exchange. Capital has its own rules that a state must counter power.
One example: Macron deleted some taxes on behalf of capital and capital bought back its equities.
Nothing with creating new jobs.
Second part, he is just a manipulator of public financial terms and to retrieve money, he is just able to pressure citizens and delete every piece of protection of the common people (as in trials and so on…). Even not having studied public law and politics science, French people are clever enough to feel it. Having destroyed the Tuileries gate is an historical symbol.
As for me I am a counter power citizen and very busy with that choice. Thank you very much for asking.

It's already translated. I translated two of his songs. "Song about the oil" and "So, how come?" The guy's guitar play and singing very ordinary, but he writes very funny songs with a lot of sense. When I listen to his songs, I don''t know if I should laugh or cry.

Oh great!
I've translated a couple of his songs too, but sometimes I have a hard time understanding his Russian.

It's a small poem:

Нам террористы уничтожили промышленность,
Культуру, сельское хозяйство, медицину.
Внесли в образование бессмысленность
И производству нож воткнули в спину.
Любую трассу они сделали ребристою.
Закрыли школу, но зато открыли храм...
Что? Это сделали отнюдь не террористы?
А кто? Да похеру. Закройте Telegram.

The terrorists have ruined our industrial formation,
Our culture, agriculture, our human medicine
They laid the whole mishmash into the education
And stabbed right in its back the manufacture.
They managed to make all the roads bumpy in no time
They closed the school but opened a new church instead…
What? Those were not the terrorists who did this shitfest?
And who were they? Don’t give a fuck, block Telegram.
