"Unemployment remains around 25% for those between the ages of 20 and 28 (higher still among those without a diploma) and as high as 80% among immigrant populations in the ghettos."
-- Guy Sorman, writing on the (rarely mentioned) problems of France, as reported in the Wall Street Journal
Don't be fooled: 40% are dumb enough to use homeopathy (water) as medicine; the toilets don't work; they encourage the pain of marital infidelity as normal; they're boring, stupid, extremely anti-American, and extremely insecure; racist, anti-Semitic, and they eat a diet that's so limited the average American would eventually think they're being forced to consume peanut butter every night.
Yea, it's a great place, dripping with intelligence and freedom. Don't believe the hype:
France is an "sophisticated" wasteland.
