No, Parisian voters are not "vomitatious," as the pathetic Henri Guaino proclaimed Monday after losing his seat in the National Assembly.No, Macron is not beginning a dictatorial career at 39, any more than Charles de Gaulle did at 67 .How did Macron, a political novice seemingly fated to preside over a thousand and one shaky coalitions, score the unprecedented achievement of ushering some 400 deputies into the 577-seat National Assembly under the banner of what was still, just a few months ago, virtually a party of one?At a certain point, the entire political system would implode.A thousand questions immediately arise: How will those swept to power under Macron's banner behave?Whatever the future holds, the central fact is abundantly clear: Macron has seen what his predecessors only glimpsed.It is incumbent upon Macron, along with those who elected him and those who voted against him or, worse, abstained, to do the best thing that one can do in dark times: to imagine, invent and embody the art of "beginnings" which Arendt believed to be the beating heart of public action.
