Breathe Again: From Miasmatic Disease To Modern Day Misconceptions
"Hopefully, you've already heard that we lost a documentary recently, it is just taking off all over the Internet and the name of the documentary is called mask facts science in history of mask in medicine, and as you know right now we are dealing with A. Nationwide and worldwide pandemic, and we're looking for solutions and we're looking for things that have real efficacy to protect our citizens and to also maintain a level of health into to to create a system where we don't go through this again, that's what it really is at the end of the day because in truth the next viruses coming, you know Kobe twenty over. Twenty, one just like the flu virus you know these viruses mutate as we're GonNa talk about today, and we'll be dealing with more infectious diseases in the future. This is how life works, and so we went to look at what are some real clinically proven real world solutions to keep our citizens healthy and so we lost this documentary again, just skyrocket is over. Half, a million views already this week and has been a few days but something happened. Something happened I'm going to share with you a little bit later in the show but as of now, you check out the full documentary at the Model Hill show dot com for slash mask facts as I mentioned today, we're GonNa go on an adventure. We're going to go through some of the data that was in the documentary, but also ribbon dig a little deeper would expand on some things we're GonNa have a good time. And really, we want look at the beginning of this utilization of mask in medicine where the start and I think it's important to in that humans have been wearing masks for forever I for thousands of years whether it's for ritual whether it's for celebration also wore that's a time that different types of masks have been used but the specific use of masks in medicine actually started around sixteen hundreds when physician Charles de created the earliest versions of a has met suit. At this time he was looking at how can we protect the physician Dat was dealing with we're talking about this time of like the black plague, right the deal with plagues it was called a plague doctor. So a featured a waxed overcoat a lengthy Cain to examine people. Can you imagine somebody examining you am cocaine you with a cane from like six feet away? How disrespectful? So they had a cane also, there was this menacing eat mask that was part of this particular has met with this form of protection. and. The interesting thing is that this mask had very different purpose than you might suspect. Because at the time physicians all over believed in something called the Maya's matic theory of disease. And basically, the miasma theory of disease means the disease is passed from person to person or from the environment to person through the inhalation of quote. Bad Air. is coming from the environment, not necessarily prisoner person, but coming from the environment in inhaling bad air was the primary cause of disease. All right. Now, the mask was not necessarily used to prevent the physician from inhaling bad air what the beak mask was actually four was to crowd out the batter and instead hill good air and what they were doing was stuffing the mask of beat to keep it away from the person and they could even lights it light it on fire lake again Billy Madison. There's a scene where they're like the taking back the poop in lights on fire people sports. So they can actually stuff the beak with herbs and spices right shot at the KFC, and then they can inhale this good air to help crowd out the batter that was the technology that was there that was their approach and they felt that was affected. So this actually continued for quite a while with this mayes matic theory disease, you might think that this is a long time ago because it sounds strange. But the Maya's matic theory of disease did not become obsolete until the twentieth century that's actually finally became obsolete in the germ theory of disease really started to take hold. And this was around the nineteen hundreds. Physicians were now beginning to wear preliminary versions of surgical mask with a primary function of protecting the patient from contamination in surgical site infection. So kind of looking at today, it was used to protect the patient from the physician. In them not you know spraying out on them during the procedure in increasing their risk of infection. Now, visually, this became common practice for healthcare workers to wear mask and the surgical setting. Now is more hygienic practices began to be incorporated into operating rooms in hospitals. Several scientists sought out to discover whether or not the ritual of wearing a mask in surgery at a high level of effectiveness in preventing infection, which is their intent surprisingly several studies including a Meta analysis, and this means multiple studies a conglomeration of multiple studies examining this issue. This was published in Cochrane systematic review, very prestigious found that when physicians wore a mask or didn't wear a mask quote, there was no statistically significant difference in infection rates between the masked in unmask group in any of the trials. Could. Now, what this means is that even over one hundred years after the inception of the mask in surgery, the researchers noted that at best quote it is unclear whether wearing surgical face masks result in any harm or benefit to the patient undergoing clean surgery. In quote I want to look a little bit further because this just didn't make sense how this not be proven to be helpful at least in. So another study, this was published in the Journal of Hospital infections appropriate title. And they also concluded that the use of surgical masks surgery are obsolete and unnecessary. Researchers at the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy summarises by stating quote clinical trials in the surgery theater have found no difference in wound infection rates with and without surgical mask. Despite these findings, it has been difficult for surgeons to give up a long standing practice.

"This is an ABC podcast. Welcome to between the lines on Tom Switzer. Now, I have a summa. I'll be bringing you some of the hall lots of the program from twenty I team and on tonight's program we discussed the life and times a Francis. Most important statesmen chows to goal with Baga Julian Jackson. Well, he was the voice who rallied the French as I suffered on the German occupation during wool war to. He was an unknown junior general at the outbreak of the war who went on to become the most important figure in France's history. By next guest says he's the most risen about Frenchman since Polian. How did he do it through the force of his personality and incredible willpower that so him refused to accept defeat and eventually have FRANZ recognized as one of the victorious allies. Charles de goal was a thorn in the sod of the British and the Americans not just during. But after the great war of World War Two challenge, you hegemony taking FRANZ out of Naito. And vetoing Britain's entry into the European Economic Community. The book is called a certain idea of France the life of Charles goal, it's attracted widespread prize. The critics Jonathan Fenby in the financial times. Max Hastings in the Sunday Times salmon in the Sunday Telegraph, they're all past guests on between the lines. They price it to the hilt. Julian Jackson is professor of history at Queen Mary university of London, and he's the author of that new bog or fee of Chelsea goal. Professor Jackson is a pleasure to have you on the program. Thank you, very much pleasure to be here. Now the goal today is widely and mod inside and outside of France. You reference to twenty ten serve I in which forty four percent of the French ranked team as the most important figure in the history. But this was certainly not the case during his loft on it. No, he was as much hated as he was loved. They were about thirty assassination. Attempts one came very close to success. I think the level of hatred that he attracted from Sutton, people almost pathological, but that has changed it often happens to people after they die. But if I could just add to all the achievements that you listed in your excellent introduction. I'll just add one more which is in some ways possibly the one which helps explain the kind of universal admiration today walls that the political system that prompts has today the so-called Fifth Republic, which president Moco is at the moment. Anyway, probably will go wrong as it always does. But for the moment, he's being a very effective president that system was created by the goal nine hundred fifty eight France it had Republic Republic. It's the fifth because they were four others and full one hundred fifty since the revolution. The French could not get any. Kind of consensus about the political system. They should have and to go. I think has an old saying it's a perfect system. But he ended that he created a system which most French now believe in and president Macron if you want to just to return to him the interestingly, he's got an official photograph, you know, old French presidents have themselves photographed officially on his has him posing in front of a table and behind cripping the table as if to say no one's going to get me out of the lease. Now, I'm in and behind him. There's an open copy of a book, and what is that book that book is Charles two goals wool memoirs. And I think there's a subliminal Molden subliminal statement in that you mentioned the Republic also the term goal est. The goal himself says quote, everybody is has bane will be goalless. But from another objective of the non sixty election that says outside the ultra fife full everyone. Has been is a will be Angie Gaullist. Yes. Exactly. That's to say that go ISM aspired to be a kind of synthesis of old French traditions. But of course, no one subscribe to all this tradition. So people at different times Scituate to themselves differently. Of course, that's a statement of unbelievable arrogance on the part of the goal. Everybody is has been will be goalless. But arrogance was certainly one of his features. I think what he meant by that is that some of the things he was trying to do would sooner or later become generally accepted. Let me just take two examples, and I'm not saying these thirty good things. But let me just take two things that are now. Absolutely. So given in French politics today, and the first is when to go came back to power and fifty eight one of his absolute priorities walls that France would have an independent nuclear deterrent. He believed that to be a great power you had to be able to defend yourself. And the only way you could do that in the modern world by independent you could. Tarrant almost no one supported that. Now supported that. Then I'm sorry. Now, I didn't this anyone in France who doesn't support a French independent, you tear, it another example, the French attempt always to stick themselves slightly at a distance from America to be a critical friend of America. If you want that's what the goals said he wanted to be very good example of that would be the Iraq wool, whether then French Foreign Minister Dominique Davila pan. Who was here ex foreign minister made a big speech, the the UN web. Basically he said win going into this. And really that could have been the goal speaking from the grave and juries lifetime. Many people were very critical of what they saw as the goals anti-americanism, whether it was not as different matter. But again that sense that France needs to as it were distanced us L from America. Even if she sees her as an ally is another heritage of the goal. So in that sense. I think you know, many people were anti goat is they didn't believe in these. Everyone most people anyway now do and of course, some outside that if the Americans had listened to develop an and the goal is from two thousand three that I wouldn't go bogged down into this unwinnable warned Iraq. That's another subject. Let's go back to the nineteen forties because this is really where to go Mike sees nine yusei he entered history. As a voice not a Feis through ice short Basie broadcast from London eighteenth of June, nineteen forty who was he at this point. He was probably when he made that speech sitting in a little studio rather like I'm sitting at the BBC London the moment staring at a microphone thinking as I now speak. I don't think affects a my broadcast going to be similar, but as I speak my life is going to change forever. Basically he arrived in London on the seventeenth of June. And here I've because the French government headed by the famous war hero marshal PETA decide to the war was over France was defeated FRANZ beside. An ominous with Germany to go for a lot of reasons. Oppressions? In fact, he said this is a will the battle of France is just the first of what will be a world will which the Americans will enter which has the British empire behind and so on in which the Germans will ultimately be defeated. So you're Rives in London. And the truth is though when you arrived in London, he is nobody he is the most junior general in the French army he'd been a general about to about three or four weeks previously. He was known oversee in the military, but to the French public. He was not known he'd spent about ten days in the lost government of very junior post at the ministry of defense. So I've as an unknown figure, you might say, well, why did chill say, okay. You can broadcast on the BBC judge said it basically because he happened to have met the go three times during those lost dramatic terrible days of the full of FRANZ when Churchill we'll go to France to try and. Suck up. The morale of the French Cup into the military and to goal was one of the people who struck him as somebody who actually seem to be panicking when everybody else walls. But if if in the end judge said, okay, well, you can broadcast on the BBC. It was because there was nobody else toes more about the content of that baby c broadcast through which the goal I himself to history if I just stress even more the unknown of the goal. I mean, he was so unknown. That's once the voice started coming regularly over the airwaves to France. And people started listening to this strange voice from London lettuce would arrive at the BBC by complicated routes. They did not spend his name. They didn't know what he looked like they didn't know what he was told it with a small didn't know where he was fat. And they didn't know what he was thin. We all think we know. He's a very caricatural fig, we all do this straight. Six full wasn't big six giant in a period when the French were actually the short when he arrived back in liberated France. In nineteen forty four. He did a short visit to the bits that would be liberated by the allies people knew he was in a Jeep with another French general and a small group sort of approach to the Jeep, and they all surrounded the other general who was next to him because the other general had five stars on his kepi, which meant he was a senior general to gold when you had to and they had no idea what to go look like they thought the five stall one must be goal. In other words, he is just a a voice unknown voice. And that is so important to explain the kind of mythological hold developed over the French and the wool everybody couldn't away project that hopes phys aspirations onto this voice. And of course, happening at the time of the Nazi expansion throughout this in your pro absolutely FRANZ his occupied at least until June nineteen forty one the end of nineteen forty one when the German invasion of of the Soviet Union starts to go wrong, the Nazis, look, the Germans look as though they all going to be the. Full. So to go back to your question. What did the goal say in that first speech, and it's very short? It's about full minutes. It was made as I said on the eighteenth of June. And it's now become a sort of an event, which is celebrated every year in France on the eighteenth of June. But at the time ole miss, nobody hood at the BBC didn't even bother to record it. So we don't actually have a recording. Or if they are quoted it as a bit of obscurity that they didn't bother to keep the recording. So we don't actually have the goals speech spoken by the goal that doesn't exist. But what he said was really very simple. It was a coal to all GMs a coal to resist since basically the line of the speeches that the flame of French resistance will not be extinguished and muscle aches thing, which is a cold resistant. But that's not the most important thing. The most important thing is that an appeal to reason it explains that this is a military defeats do. To the superior tactics. And all of the enemy, it doesn't mean that France is a decadent destroyed finished. It has particular military reasons, and I repeat it is the first battle in what will be a willed wall. My guess is professor Julian Jackson. He's the author of a certain idea of France. The law of Charles de goal. It's got two goals upbringing tell us about he's family law. What kinda family did he come from? He came from a very conservative monarchist. He was born in eighteen ninety. He was born into a France that was modernizing the year before he was born the Eiffel tower had been built that symbol of industrial Madonna ty- if you on so his born into a Republican secular anti-catholic French regime, but he was born into an particularly rich but perfectly comfortable. Ably of very intellectual family of Catholics with a certain regret for the lost monarchy. His father was a teacher and a Jesuit school. So it could not have been a more traditional background. You could say they were a slightly what you might say on the on the margins of the modern world, they were kind of internal 'exiles in this modern Republican secular fronts, so the goal should emerge as a sort of figure who embodies all the traditions of France is in the soda counter intuitive. If you look at this of marginal background that he comes from and headed tonight to our exemplary military education giant stand in your book, you cited just two years after he graduates, the I will war breaking out his nineteen fourteen. He experienced a real baptism of far in the opening days of the conflict. I think he was shot in the leg and Bill, Jim. The reality of wool must have had a huge impact on him. Well, the fact is he decided to join the army is absolutely characteristic of young French of his generation for somebody like him to serve the army was away of serving France. And we haven't said this so far in this interview. But I think the one thing that one has to stress about the goal and his the title of my book is the famous phrase, he used the beginning of his woman was all my life. I've had a certain idea frowns his relationship to France is something really quite strange, and we all familiar with the idea of patriotism. That's not a it's a would we can all use all probably in different kinds of ways Patritotic, but the goals patriotism was it was Hof mystical. But but also in some sense, very what the French were shot. Then he said that he envisaged fronts as a Madonna in the frescoes as a Princess in the fairy stories for all. His his mother. It's almost like the Virgin Mary. So you join the army to serve your country. He's wounded three times. And then he's taken prisoner is prison about the Germans. And I think he's big to ease in POW camps rot. Absolutely. Yes. He's taken prisoner at that. Terrible battle of Don sixteen he he'd been wounded three times null traumatically wounded but wounded and then he's taken prisoner and he tries to escape he's moved from prisoner rule come to preserve role. But the problem about escaping is that his not actually so difficult to escape from a prisoner role. But the difficulty is once you've escaped to actually get to the to the frontier and get to liberty. And because the goal was not exactly someone who passed unnoticed because his Tolan is weird appearance. He kept being recaptured. So he spent most of the second half of the war in a prisoner of welcome. And you all what is the impact of the wool on him? Well, I think the impact of that experience is a sense of humiliation and bitterness because he. So desperately desperately wanted to have served from the beginning to the end and to be there at the victory, and he wrote a very poignant letter at the very end of the wall to one of his commanding officers saying, obviously, like everyone, I'm sharing the joy of victory over Joe, many, the hereditary enemy oldest things that people have goals generation believed, but it will be full me ever mixed up with a bitterness on a sadness that I was not that to participate in the victory. And I think part of that sense of extrordinary ambition. Restless ambition of the goalie the interval years is to make up for that humidity. And that most time this desire to make a mock it was clearly my difficult by the growing pacifism in by the government and society think about the Kellogg brand pace packed to out little war in nineteen twenty. So against that backdrop to what extent Mike, Mark. It's always difficult for soldiers to make a mock when there isn't the wool, and that was the prostrating thing for the goal and the way he made his Mark was actually as an intellectual. He was a very cerebral, man. We haven't actually said he as I said at the beginning, he came from very much, an intellectual background books books books where his life in a way that really makes him very all among contemporary politicians. He was steeped in French literature, and he was steeped in French history. I suppose in the kind of way that chill with steeped in British history. But the goal was a more intellectual cerebral figure. So he wrote books full books in the Toyotas. He wrote about leadership he wrote about the history of the French army, and he wrote a book, which is probably the only one that really got much publicity. But even that Wilson a best seller as repeat he wasn't known when he arrived in London, which was a plea for the multi-nation of the French army. The French army must not. Try to fight the lost were again, take on bold the need for mobility, tanks modernization and so on. So that's how he tries to make his mom. What was he saying about the resilience of the German threat in the mid to late ninety thirties? He walls in the into warriors a in many ways, traditional French conservative. He changed. I think in many ways off to the wool. But Joe me was the enemy Germany the hereditary enemy. He was not one of those people who believe the settlement was unfair. He believe anything the best. I settlement should have been tougher on the Germans he was a conventional wisdom at the Tom and curly conventional particularly among people on the right, as you mentioned brio is a sort of sent a politician of the centre-left too. But to reconciliation with Germany to goal had no truck with that Germany is such and it wasn't by the way, not schism. The enemy for him was Germany. I mean, he didn't say like thoughts of. But that wasn't the point. It was Germany and what? Distinguishes him. And this is very important. For other conservatives in the nineteen thirties in France is he never wavers in that belief, and my point here is this in the nineteen thirties. Prompts became a very divided society. A lot of people on the right? Started to fear into communism. They started a revolution. And so many French were right wing us moved to the position that yes, we don't like Germany traditionally, but Nazi Germany is at least a bulwark against Soviet communism. Bolshevism to go never took that view. So when the issue became should the French sign a pact with the Soviet Union. He wrote two important led to his mother on this. You all see what I think about a pact with the Soviet Union. I say it is absolutely necessary. It is necessary for geopolitical reasons with indifferent to the kind of regime, the Soviet Union is Germany as the enemy, and we must not put ideology ova patriotism. Okay. Well, let's return to goals Basie broadcasts. Now, the second speech was made the day after the French government's on the honest with the Germans what did Churchill in the British government. Mike of the goal any attempt to sit up an alternative government from London. I think everybody knows that the relationship between Churchill into goal after the beginning was not an easy one. The goal was not an easy, man. His whole point. Churchill and the British fully bankrolled and largely supported the goal. Rod lutely. Yeah. No, no. He bit the hand. I think I'd say in the book he bit the hand fed him and he bit the hand fed him to show that prompt still had teeth. Gratitude was not not his repertoire, no, you're absolutely right without chill. They would have been no go. He relied on the BBC was bankrolled by them bumps their walls. I a big difference. The difference was this the British or Churchill because it was originally church. They've view walls. It's wonderful Frenchman's. Come to London, he will rally some other French to join the allies, perhaps he'll bring over some big figures in the end the biggest join him say it was just goal. The British always were to some extent. An even more the Americans assuming that it might be possible to bring the V she regime the regime of marshal Pitta in France over to the camp that was absolutely Roosevelt's position. So what they didn't want of. They were backing the goal, but they. Try to almost have it both ways and the goal with saying via. She is illegitimate. It is not the French government. I am prompts. I mean, he would say I am proud and his point walls that are a government that the cited ominous which allows off its country to be cupid has full fitted. It's legitimacy now whether or not that's right that was his position. And the extraordinary battles. He has with Churchill and even more with Roosevelt actually stem from the refusal of the British to recognize him as a government twenty eighth of August nine and forty four goal arrives. In Paris, just being liberated by the Americans from the Germans how Cain was to go to assert. He's a thirty as the president of the Republic at that moment. Well, what the goal wanted to do? And this is back to the point just made when he was asserting his own legitimacy as a kind of government in exile. His ambition was that when France was liberated because he believed from the beginning that France would be that the wool would be won by the allies that France must not be in the position of a country liberated and occupied. But a partner, and it was an extraordinary ambition. If you think of the state of the humiliated state of France in nineteen forty but in a sense, he succeeded in that many of the -veloping resistance rallied to the goal because of that voice coming. They didn't know who to go walls. But there was a resistance moving developing in France and two goal was the name to which they attach themselves. So what's very interesting. Is that Eisenhower when he is planning what becomes the d day? Operation is desperate to work with the goal because he sees that what he needs is the as much as possible to work with the French resistance to get some help from the French resistance, and that's to be done via to go. And so he's very frustrated by Roosevelt's suspicion of two goal is now, but pragmatic reasons, so when to get back to Paris, he needs an once to to be recognized as head of a provisional government for two reasons one to prevent Anneke and France after all promises in a state of all over France that he's little Resistance Committees. Developing extraordinary, powerful communist party, there is a kind of latent civil there isn't a civil wolf. But there is a lot of violence. He wants to restore old white does he want that because he is desperate that when the allies start discuss what the world is going to be like off to the wool fr. Wants to be in a position to have a voice in that debate. And I think you said that the beginning of your inter you'll fest introduction. Thanks, partly to go in nineteen Forty-five. When the United Nations has set up the French get a permanent seat on the Security Council and they get astonishingly zone of. Okay. Bachchan in Germany now, the culture bution of the wool had been relatively limited though, it was not insignificant between forty four and forty five. But that's all thanks to two goals. Success in saying that is a government. You don't need to occupy FRANZ. It doesn't need to be a military occupation. I have set up a government, which can talk. He would have said as an equal of asleep. That's what Churchill and Roosevelt thought. But at least as a partner with the allies. And that was the point you're on Arran, if you just gingy this is Tom Switzer from between the lines, and my guess is professor Julian Jackson author of. Wadleigh climbed a certain idea of France the law of Chelsea goal. Let's get to the post war Europe because the goals, very influential. He and all struck by something that the goal till the newly elected Richard Nixon, inau hundred sixty nine quote in London, Brussels bomb, Berlin and Rome, you'll have saying that there is no Europe. Perhaps it will exist one day. But it does not exist. Today was the goal in five RAV or against European integration at this point. Well, oh, did that's the million dollar question you and very relevant to the very relevant today. And I think part of the reason why my book seems to attract what's given it. I suppose a kind of extra contemporary residents in in England today is that we are going through. I'm sure, you know, a kind of little civil war. Our own about Brexit. A lot of people have brought out the famous two speeches that go made in nineteen sixty three and nineteen sixty seven in which he vetoed British entry to Europe. And on all of the things he said about what he thought would happen. If Britain became part of Europe seemed to be in many ways remarkably prescient, but you'll question is what was his view of Europe, and it is actually very complicated thing, and I just want to sort of preface this by saying that the more I worked onto goal in my book, the Moi found it hard to pin the goal down. He's at one level. Very simple, man. You know, he's a man who says what he thinks he's famous in the sense kind of sort of trousers brutality. He has a view of the world, and he expresses it with extra lucidity, but he's also unbelievably slippery. He's terribly difficult to pin down when I was writing the book people would say to me. Oh, it must be awful writing a book about a man who has touch absurd ideas of the old prompt complain the. World. And I would say what actually know everything that you think is absurd about to go to the door descended himself. He's always one step ahead of you. He's a ferry coming. He's he's very pragmatic as the well as well as being almost mystical industry of France. So when we tried to answer the question, what did he think about Europe? I think the simple answer is this. He had a deep suspicion of supranational institutions. He was alternately a conservative French-nationalist. We've that his the pulse. Marie Lous informed Paulsons and a realist. So he did not believe or he was very suspicious of supranationalism. But when he came back to power in nineteen fifty eight the move to the treaty of Rome that sets up what is the alkyl the European Community had been signed. So. Track. Fifty-seven? Exactly. Yes. So prompt his on that track already most interesting about the goal is. Although he condemned he announced it in opposition when he was trying to get back to power in the nineteen fifties. He accepted it once. It was there as this extrordinary pragmatism about goal. It's that that's make the best of it. So let's try and make these institutions work for us. Let's turn the Coleman cultural policy into something that works of France. And so so there's a crack Madame join Jackson. Thanks so much for being on the program today.

"This is an ABC podcast. Well, he was your voice who rallied the French as I suffered on the German occupation during World War Two. He was an unknown junior general at the outbreak of the war who went onto become the most important figure in France's history on next guest says he's the most risen about Frenchman since Napoleon how did he do it through the force of his personality and incredible willpower that so him refused to accept a face and eventually have FRANZ recognized as one of the victorious allies. Charles de goal was a thorn in the side of the British and the Americans not just journeying. But after the great war of World War Two challenge. You hegemony taking France out of Naito and vetoing Britain's entry into the European Economic Community. The book is called a certain idea of France the life of Charles goal. Julian Jackson is professor of history at Queen Mary. The university of London, and he's the author of that new bog raphia of Charles de goal. Professor Jackson is a pleasure to have you on the program. Thank you, very much pleasure to be here. Now the goal today is widely and mod inside and outside of France. You referenced a twenty ten serve I in which forty four percent of the French ranked team as the most important figure in the history. But this was certainly not the case during his loft on was it. No, no. He was as much hated as he was loved. There were about thirty assassination. Attempts one came very close to success. I think the level of hatred that attracted from Sutton, people was almost pathological. But that has changed it often happens to people after they die. But if I could just add to all the chievements that you listed in your excellent introduction. I'll just add one more, which is in some ways possibly the one which helps explain the kind of universal admiration today walls. That the political system that promise has today the so-called Fifth Republic, which president McColl is at the moment. Anyway, it'll probably will go wrong as it always does. But for the moment, he's being a very effective president that system was created by the goal in nineteen fifty eight for onset had Republic Republic. It's the fifth because they were four others and for one hundred and fifty s since the revolution, the French could not get any kind of consensus about the political system. They should have and to go created a system, which most French now believe in and president macro if you to just to return to him interestingly, he's got an official photograph, you know, old French president's had themselves photographed officially and his has him posing in front of a table and behind him. There's an open copy of a book, and what is that book that book is Charles two goals wool memoirs. And I think there's a subliminal Mortenson Biddle statement in that you. Mentioned the feet Republic. Also, the term goal est. The goal himself says quote, everybody is has been over will be Gaullist. But from another of of the non and sixty five election that says outside the ultra fife full. Everyone has been is a will be anti Gaullist. Yes, exactly. That's to say that Gaullism aspired to be a kind of synthesis of old French traditions. But of course, no one subscribe to all traditions. So people at different times Scituate to themselves differently. Of course, that's a statement of unbelievable arrogance on the part of the goal. Everybody is has been a will be goalless. But arrogance was certainly one of his features. I think what he meant by that is that some of the things he was trying to do would sooner or later become generally accepted. Let me just take two examples. And I'm not saying these good things the first is when to go came back to power and fifty eight one of his absolute priorities walls that France would. Have an independent nuclear deterrent. He believed that to be a great power you had to be able to defend yourself. And they only way you could do that in the world by independent nuclear deterrent. Almost no one supported that. Now supported that. Then I'm sorry. Now, I didn't anyone informants who doesn't support a French independent, you deterrent? Another example, the French attempt always to stipulate themselves slightly at a distance from America to be a critical friend of America. If you want I think, that's what the goal said. He wanted to be very good example of that would be the Iraq wall. Whether then French Foreign Minister Dominique Davila pan. Who was here ex foreign minister made a big speech at the U N web. Basically he said win going into this. And really that could have been the go speaking from the grave and juries lifetime. Many people were very critical of what they saw as the goals anti-americanism, whether it was not as different matter. But again that sense that France needs to as it were distance yourself from. America. Even if she sees her as an ally is another heritage of goal. So in that sense. I think you know, many people were anti goat is they didn't believe in these things. Most people now do just go back to the nineteen forties because this is really where to go Mike sees nine yusei he entered history.
