Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see the reference to the '68 generation as a soft dig to 'hippies' being the cause of the drift to the left. There's so many of them, you see.

And Kouchner has never been a socialist, as far as I know. When he was invited to join socialist government, he represented 'civil society', i.e. he was part of ouverture from the left (his presence them did not make those governments be described as 'as close to a grand coalition as is possible').

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
