Neutral military in France?

BBC in April, 2021:

Anger as ex-generals warn of ‘deadly civil war’ in France

“Far-right leader Marine Le Pen, a candidate in next year’s presidential election, has spoken out in support of the former generals.”

“But the minister in charge of the armed forces, Florence Parly, tweeted: “Two immutable principles guide the action of members of the military with regard to politics: neutrality and loyalty.””

“She earlier warned that any signatories still serving in the military would be punished for defying a law that requires them to remain politically neutral.”

French soldiers warn of civil war in new letter

It’s a principle in all constitutionally democratic nation states that the military is loyal and neutral, meaning that the military follows the orders of civilian leaders who don’t fail to represent the ethnic majority in a nation state.

But we have seen the last three decades that nation states in the West have been replaced by neoliberal market states with corporatist politicians who are only loyal to 1) global supply chains, and 2) cheap labor based on mass immigration. They claim to be loyal to human rights too. I guess that’s why they cooperate with China, Saudi Arabia and exploit Africa.

Corporatist supporters of globalized market states have no more credibility regarding human rights than supporters of constitutionally democratic nation states. It was nation states which created the principles of human rights after WW2.

Ethnic French soldiers have no patriotic duty to be loyal to the market state, because patriotism plays no role at all in a globalized market state. The only two values in a market state are 1) money, and 2) alleged human rights, cf Terror and Consent by Philip Bobbitt.

In some market states it’s also clear that the military is not neutral when it supports a small cultural minority: woke LGBT

Here is elementary knowledge which all educated people are aware of: it follows logically from the principles of ethno-nationalism that soldiers in France have not only a right but also a duty to take back their homeland.

Don’t blame me for pointing out the above well-known fact about nationalism. Please, don’t shoot the messenger.

I’ll just eat popcorn while observing how corporatists build a surveillance state to monitor and suppress the original native population in France if it ever tries to rebel against globalist overlords. It’s entertaining to watch old imperialists being screwed by a new class of exploiters and dominators. Some will say it’s “poetic justice”. I’m a simple man however. My criterion for judging this situation is whether I’m regaled by exciting news about military drama in France. Can’t complain so far. As a psychological thriller it beats Hollywood. Well done!
