Le billet de la semaine

​Hollanderie

Ça, c'est une vraie hollanderie, dira-t-on un jour. Le terme, expliquera Wikipedia, s'apparente à autodestruction. C'est détruire l'instrument de son pouvoir. Il fait référence au politicien François Hollande, Président de la République (2012-2017), resté dans l'Histoire pour avoir détruit le Parti Socialiste durant son mandat. Onze ans chef du PS (1997-2008) – un record – il incarne aussi l'opération collective de laminage qui a précédé : en économie, la justice sociale sacrifiée à la gestion du libéralisme ; en politique, la bataille démocratique des idées verrouillée au profit de la course aux places. En 2012, sitôt élu Président, il a trahi logiquement ses promesses sociales et appelé près de lui un jeune conseiller libéral, Emmanuel Macron. Lequel, intelligent et ambitieux, l'a lui-même trahi et conquis les bébés PS, jeunes ou déjà vieux, prompts à sentir le vent tourner. Les purs socialistes ont alors entrepris de construire un programme social et écologiste mais il a fallu attendre dix ans, lira-t-on sur Wikipedia, pour que la gauche revienne au pouvoir en battant aux élections de 2027 la droite dure FN-LR et le parti centriste LRM épuisé d'illusions perdues.
