Guy Sorman on the Political Throwback into the Sixties

Guy Sorman, less optimistic than usual, discusses the French election in the context of political trends in Europe and, I would add, in the rest of the world too:
In other words, Hollande will try to entice other European leaders with a vision for a world that no longer exists. This politics of nostalgia is troubling, not only because France and Europe confront severe economic challenges, but also because France and other democracies are confronted with real challenges to their legitimacy.
