Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How does the publication of these cartoons help the fight against self-segregation" in certain sections of the French underclass? And how does it work against externally imposed segregation of wider sections of French society? What alternative narratives do you speak about? All I see is posturing from someone in the upper middle class, with a false sense of defiance (real defiance would be to face blasphemy laws in Pakistan for example), and in denial of the predictalbe use of this empty act by xenophobes (like the diarist).

To your point, it's one world on the internet, and CH is the shining example of busting the imam's chops, or the Communist Party's chops, or the military-prison-industrial complex's chops.

CH is the bad example, the extreme leader for personal freedom.

And I wish they published in English. Although we do have the Onion, and Andy Borowitz, and driftglass and Charlie Pierce.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
