French President Elections pitched with famous videos

These famous videos are worth a thousand words to explain the french candidates campaigns :

1/ Benoit Hamon (Socialist)

In French “le travail c’est la santé, ne rien faire c’est la conserver, les prisonniers du boulot font pas de vieux os” means “work is health, do nothing is to preserve it, People who are prisoners of their work do not live long”
Henri Salvador’s song illustrates very well one of the projects of the socialist Benoit Hamon: universal basic income of €755 (£655) a month for all citizens for all French.

2/ Marine Le Pen (extreme right-wing)

A beautiful poetic illustration. In this very famous and disturbing sequence of Disney’s Snow White, the witch is Marine Le Pen and Snow White is the people. The apple is the speech and political program of Le Pen.

3/ Emmanuel Macron (Liberal Democrat)

Emmanuel Macron is a former business banker who seduces a lot of French … But nobody really knows or lies his discourse between liberalism and egalitarianism. It is criticized for being only a continuation of François Hollande.

4/ Jean-Luc Mélenchon (Extreme left)

Mélenchon is a Man of real left who follows the political line of Mitterrand. He wants to remove to the 5th French republic and to reshape a more egalitarian system … Utopian?

5/ François Fillon (Ultra Liberal)

Fillon is currently charged with misappropriating public funds … No one believes in him any more … ah yes, only one … himself. Well, the problem on Félix Baumgartner’s video is that the landing is perfect … Probably not Fillon’s one!

Have a shadow idea

Have a shadow idea
And absolute forgiveness
Like the Teenager
Who sees the end of the world
Wandering in the ocean of emptiness,
Wandering soul
Becoming Black Angel
At the last step

Have a shadow idea
And eternal embrace
To the sound of the great bell tower,
To the sound of a violin
Leaving the evening,
And for no reason
When the sewer cleared,
At the back of the alley

Having a shadow idea,
Evaporate in the distance
As an acid drop
And become someone


Poetry by MrJuan (2017)


Will we see our children grow
and the roses continue to blush

Will we see happy fish in the sea
and the fairies in the woods no longer cry

Will we see the rich mess tins
give a little to the others

Will we see the gaping holes
filled by the will of the gods

Will we see the moons and the suns
no longer shine without hurting

Will we see the soulless
give love to the righteous

Will we see a spring
that will never end again

Will we see an army of love shine
and fight this lost world

Will we see the next day
after seeing yesterday
