Ennui grips liberal spirit

May 5, 2017

The French people have a historic election to select their future president on May 7, 2017.  It is fascinating that neither candidate is from a long standing political party of influence.  Emmanuel Macron married his school teacher for some odd reason, perhaps to graduate?  His political followers are En Marche! Marine Le Pen has a following that does not need an exclamation mark in their name; National Front.

The more common political groups failed to attract popular support.  This is reminiscent of our election for president in 2016.  It appears that there is a global attack on liberals by ENNUI infecting their weak minds.  France added this word into our lexicon for the USA.  Sylvia Plath in 1955 had a unpublished poem titled Ennui.  It remained unpublished by her lack of interest in her own poem?

Tea leaves thwart those who count catastrophe

designing futures where nothing will occur:

cross the gypsy’s palm and yawning she

will still predict no perils left to conquer.

The themes of lost hope and despair are more powerful in The Wasteland by T. S. Elliot, but she was dealing with ennui instead of the destruction of society.  Ennui is boredom with no interest in doing anything except complaining about being bored.  I see the fake intellectuals of the Obama flock as the ruin of initiative.  Why bother because work is so boring and tiring!

Liberals wait for something to happen, but they will not make anything happen.  They expect somebody will do something someday!

Alfred , Lord Tennyson captured the embrace of resignation in The Lotos-eaters in Choric Song IV;

Hateful is the dark-blue sky,

Vaulted o’er the dark-blue sea.

Death is the end of life; ah, why

Should life all labour be?

Let us alone.  Time driveth onward fast,

And in a little while our lips are dumb.

Let us alone.  What is that will last?

All things are taken from us, and become

Portions and parcels of the dreadful past.

To war with evil?  Is there any peace

In ever climbing up the climbing wave?

All things have rest, and ripen toward the grave

In silence; ripen, fall and cease:

Give us long rest or death, dark death, or dreamful ease.

Liberals are sophisticated and cosmopolitan.  Only the common folks from the rural towns who have been ignored for decades are ready to declare war against evil!  We do not need a gypsy fortune teller to predict our future.  We are claiming our right to work and worship while protecting our families from liberal lunacy.  45th president  is not perfect, but I am perfectly content to have Donald J Trump knocking over the lazy “it will never work” liberals.

Global problems have France ready for Le Pen.  It is comical that the only woman candidate USA offered will not be with her sisters in England, France, and Germany.  Nobody expected all of the world would wake up at the same time, to shake off the excuses of failing socialist policies of liberals.   Crops will be planted, roofs will be repaired, and children will play this summer!

Trump candidate
