I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but the french are not lazy.<quoted text>
Nothing wrong with some Victorian values in my book.
Nothing wrong with working hard and making money; that's a very good ethic in fact. We have plenty of people coming from the continent who come to put that in practice - many French in fact!
Corruption also exists in France, but under another form. The French diseases are cronism, hedonism and lazyness.
The US and the UK subscribe fully to capitalism; it has its merits and its drawback. Nothing wrong with greed and the desire to succeed; those are good motivators.
France has a very high productivity rate.
You don't seem to like France too much.
I guess now you have found your paradise.
The american liberal system is not for the french.
Greed is a sin.
Not a good thing anyway.
Sarko must go, he can thank HB when he was elected in 2007.
