French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy slams the ‘68ers:
Speaking before 7,000 young members of the ruling Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), Sarkozy, 51, said modern France had been betrayed by the left-wing ideals that took root after the 1968 student uprising, and called for a society built around “a reassertion of the value of work”.
”(The generation of 1968) inculcated everywhere — in politics, in education, in society — an inversion of values and a political correctness of which today’s young people are the principal victims,” Sarkozy said to applause.
“The truth is that the students of May ‘68 were the spoiled children of 30 years of prosperity. You are the children of crisis. They lived a life without constraints. Today you are picking up the bill,” he said.
