Emmanuel Macron's victory in the French presidential election could be mistaken for the plot of a novel that no publisher would accept.Then, at the last minute, the Macron campaign's computers were hacked, releasing a trove of emails revealing that members of the candidate's party had engaged in nefarious activities like paying their employees, reserving tables at restaurants and exchanging files for each other to read.He will have to keep in mind that rejection of Le Pen is not the same thing as endorsement of his program.From the first hours of his term, Macron will have to apply himself to the task of truth and unity that, as a perceptive reader of the Christian philosopher Paul Ricoeur, he made the focus of his campaign. Was that not the case, in 1789, with the French revolutionaries Hoche and Saint-Just, with Bonaparte the first and Napoleon III (until Macron, the youngest president in the history of France)?And I know that there are too many forms of conservatism in this country, too many potential blockages and thromboses, too many fanatics who swore as one, before Macron's election, to spurn the banker who would be president and to fling him from the Tarpeian Rock. The democratic world needs Macron to succeed.
