Seducing the French

Extracts from this document...


Seducing the French Charles Law As I sit outside my favorite caf�, drinking wine as the sun slowly dies off into the twilight of dusk, I hear the most obnoxious noise. It is a few teenagers trying to speak their best English. I watch them for a few minutes, and I am disgusted. If these children represent the future, I weep. I see a whole generation with no direction, no true love of their beautiful country, no nationalism in them. Instead they wear blue jeans, and drink that despicable liquid called 'Coca-Cola'. These younger generations are imitating a society across an ocean. I see restaurants grilling up American cuisine's and California wines. Youths are wearing American brand clothing, and traveling to America to tour their commercialism empire. Why are they doing this? Simple, Americanization. Americanization is happening all around us, not just to our children who are emptying into the streets speaking with their best James Dean. American thought has crept into our very lives with everything we do; our day to day routine is now being controlled by American ideals. Every French citizen is falling into the clutches of consumerism and conformity. We are turning into a trinket society, worshipping of a mammon, and witnessing to the death of our beloved culture. ...read more.


I believe that we need to regulate and control the availability of investments to Americans'. It is in America's best interest to take over French industry, and control its industry. They are afraid of us as a super power. They wish to control all our industry including those for our national defense so the can sit don and tell us what to do from a boardroom across the Atlantic. The overseers of the French population, those who across the ocean and say they do everything with a clear conscience have since barred an important technology from coming to France. These high tech products would help with our national defense, in the nuclear arms race, but America would fear us too much so they keep us in the dark to protect themselves from a country that can live without a dying passion to consume every little gadget offered on the television. Besides government control we must be wary of the foreign investment we have allowed ourselves to become engaged in. The total stock of foreign investment in France's economy, which is into the several billion-dollar categories, over half of that is, controlled by American investment firms. The most eye-popping and worrisome aspect of the whole event is that most of the money is invested into manufacturing. ...read more.


Let us be the ones who infect them, rather then they, let us bestow our culture and values upon them, and that in turn will turn around their investments, their capital gains and stock market controlled funds to a more secure business that we are more accustom to deal with. Let them come to us for assurance and culture. This will be the only way to turn our economy back into controlling hands of the just and right, to the hands of the natural born leaders of this not only this continent we call Europe, but the natural born leaders of this home we call earth. As we look at this sizable intrusion into our national stock, we should see it as a threat to our way of life. A country of consumers and laziness is taking over our economy and using it as capital on the world wide market, we are one of the most Powerful countries in all the world. France offers culture where America offers stagnation. We are sophisticated with great cities and much to add to the continuing humanity and the American's will just take everything for them and not offer us a table scrap. America will continue to reap the world for it's own benefits, take more statues and then simply send their children to us for history lessons, because all we are to them is a tourist attraction. ...read more.

  1. Commentry On Ocean

    The poet describes the how the waves move, 'as waves dance away.' The choice of the word 'dance' also gives a musical atmosphere, which is what waves are like. This personification suggests the grace and perfect timings of the waves, just like dancers performing.

  2. Poets rethink everything anew

    The author seems to be proud of her power and reinforces it again and again. The structure is ambigous, neither totally irregular, nor absolutely ordered, which might want to confirm the new idea that writing has no rules. While most of the stanzas have four lines, the first one has nine and the last one has only three verses.
