The nanny state: we’ve turned adults into children

EU MP Daniel Hannan is talking about Europe after a generation of state sponsored sloth … but it is what awaits America. Good video.

Hannan is perhaps one of the most outspoken and quite possible the most conservative politician in Europe and so he tends to call it like he sees it. Asked by Neil Cavuto to explain why the French would protest so vociferously an increase in the retirement age from 60 to 62, Hannan says Europe, by taking control and making citizens dependent on the state for everything has been turned into spoiled children.

But this opinion is just that until it is viewed through the perspective provided in this video. Eric Gilley, French labor rep:

Meanwhile in America … the people of this country are demonstrating too, which Hannan thinks is a stark contrast.

Which group wins out is critical to this country’s and the world’s future, don’t you think?

    Infantilism: what socialism should be called.  I hope Sarkozy can wean the French children from the government teat.

    It  turns out (when you read accurate reports) that the minimum retirement age in France was in raised from 60 to 62 and the full retirement age was raised from 65 to 67. Sound familiar??
