Quotes

...question turned from more of a theoretical academic exercise to a hardcore fiscal one, with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates begging the question "Does America need 11 plus super carriers when our competitors don't even have one?"
"L’Algérie, c’est la France!” a young minister named François Mitterrand declared in 1954, and the slogan and its variants still resonate. When Algeria was under French control, it was administered not by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as France’s other colonies and protectorates were, but by the Ministry of the Interior, which governs metropolitan France; Algeria was the crown jewel of France’s overseas reign. The history of the National Front is intertwined with France’s denouement as a colonial power. The party’s founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen, and several other early members were paratroopers in the French Army during the hostilities. They were also part of the Organisation de l’Armée Secrète, or O A S , a faction that tried to sabotage de Gaulle’s negotiations with the F L N and, ultimately, staged an attempt to assassinate him. In the eyes of these men and their supporters, inviting the institutional descendant of the F L N to celebrate French nationhood is sacrilegious. “What’s being debated is still very much alive for the pied-noir community,” Zaretsky told me. “They can’t forget what the F L N represents.”"

The history of fiat money is little more than a register of monetary follies and inflations. Our present age merely affords another entry in this dismal register."
...risked having their radio taken away and a fine and at worse, prison, forced labour or deportation to the death camps," Luneau told the Observer . "During the occupation, the French turned to the BBC for their news. France was under the German boot but people knew BBC would tell the truth even if the news was bad, and this countered German propaganda. With the BBC, people knew they were hearing the truth."
