Of course we knew all that at the approach of summer, the watermelon remained a fruit that is nice that is very popular with young and old alike. For its freshness, its little sweet taste to follow, and the real power, and thirst-quenching. And in a democracy ?
Without danger to the health, green outside and red inside of the watermelon, Citrullus lanatus politicus of his real name policy is thus largely imposed on Sunday 28 June 2020, on the occasion of the second round of the municipal elections ! The watermelon gallic is become, in a few hours of a fruit, a politically star that the French and the French to the various aspirations, instead of the left, have decided to consume without any kind of moderation. But beware of the contagion mimetics !
Nothing was obvious, though, the producers of watermelons French we have too often accustomed to the war of the seeds. In addition, for all of us, the watermelon was a fruit native to West Africa, that grew massively in China, Turkey, Brazil, Iran, Morocco, the United States, and more marginally in France, including French Guiana, Guadeloupe and in the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’azur. But there… the watermelon gallic seems to push the political everywhere. Personally I did not see it coming. Since the first watermelons in Grenoble a few years ago (2014), up to now Marseille, Lyon, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, and even Poitiers in passing to a few pips near by Lille and Paris… it is clear that the summer crop 2020 is history. And if we reach common sense, it is not necessary to get out of the Ecole spéciale militaire de Saint-Cyr to understand that the green revolution is, between us and more seriously, well and truly in the works… without the bad puns, of course !
We could procrastinate the whole lines on the power of forbearance and a lack of citizen-voters. But absent having necessarily twisted, they have nothing to say or to say to those who have been this Sunday, legitimated, by the democratic power of the ballot box and the great wind of dégagisme that blows over France since 2017. They are also eco-friendly convinced or opportunistic, ecologists have media win. While it is desirable and expected or not, the breakthrough ecologist is real. Ecology is no longer a fad of a few sweet crazy policies and the hobby of a few other booboos disruptive. No. Ecology blows hot and cold on the political landscape French.
To be totally honest, like you I think the world does not turn quite round, as global warming is not a hollow concept for an old president arrogant and peroxidated, and that the ailments of mother nature on a global scale to have real impact on our quotidiennetés urban, peri-urban and even provincial.
If we had not yet fully conscious, the fallen more than elected officials this weekend will have to remember. But be careful ! Since the popular expression “to Take the” melon belongs to the common language, ecology, politics should be the privilege of political ecology ? I don’t think so. The watermelon does not have to be green outside and red inside.
