“It’s going to end very badly.” This is the observation that essayist David Djaïz makes about the political class. “I have the impression that the political class is content to manage the decline, alternating between the purge and the check,” denounces the politician in a portrait for Le Point. “France could experience a huge public finance crisis, or a social revolt compared to which the Yellow Vests and the farmers are appetizers,” warns David Djaïz.

Budget deficit, inflation, unemployment insurance reform, lack of caregivers in hospitals, lack of resources in public nursing homes, retirement reform… the list of thorny subjects for the State is still long. The essayist also points the finger at ecology. These points of tension could lead to a huge crisis according to him.

Former advisor to the Elysée, the one who was responsible for monitoring the work of the National Council for Refoundation (CNR) in September 2022, believes he “saw from the inside to what extent the State was intellectually and operationally exhausted.” He thus evokes several avenues to avoid the point of no return, starting with a sharing of tasks between Europe, the nation and the local level.

According to the essayist, Europe must reorganize itself “by investing massively in climate, military and technological issues”. In this regard, he proposes several measures, starting with health. He suggests allowing caregivers to organize themselves with more freedom in health centers “without having to justify every action of the coordinator.” On the education side, he suggests letting teachers organize themselves “more freely”, “based on a diagnosis that they construct with the broader educational community”.

For David Djaïz, the results are alarming. We must “rebuild” France by focusing on three axes: the “desire for territorial anchoring”, “awareness of the ecological emergency” and “attachment to the Republic”.

In the book “The Obligatory Revolution”, co-written by Xavier Desjardins, professor of urban planning at the Sorbonne, they look at the climate challenge in Europe. “The alternative is not between movement and immobility,” they write. It is between an obligatory but controlled ecological revolution, governed democratically from start to finish, or, on the contrary, uncontrollable, disorderly planetary upheavals, with potentially much more devastating effects, including on individual well-being,” they emphasize. .

An “obligatory revolution” to be implemented within a given time. Indeed, faced with Chinese and American models, David Djaïz and Xavier Desjardins wish to lead a “political and industrial revolution in less than thirty years” with a new mode of “production and consumption”.
