France in decline
Non! Non! Says this Frenchman:
"I would say it is not that France is in decline; it is that it has stagnated during a rise of globalization," he said. "There is a feeling that all of the action culturally and economically and politically is happening around us, but not within France."
Non! We are not in decline! Everybody else is just getting ahead of us!
OK...than how about we call it relative decline, Frenchy?
Frenchman: "Alors. Oui."
