    This is an interesting article that backs up what you are saying.

    "A 120-page research paper entitled "No-Go Zones in the French Republic: Myth or Reality?" documented dozens of French neighborhoods "where police and gendarmerie cannot enforce the Republican order or even enter without risking confrontation, projectiles, or even fatal shootings."
    In October 2011, a 2,200-page report, "Banlieue de la République" (Suburbs of the Republic) found that Seine-Saint-Denis and other Parisian suburbs are becoming "separate Islamic societies" cut off from the French state and where Islamic Sharia law is rapidly displacing French civil law.
    The report also showed how the problem is being exacerbated by radical Muslim preachers who are promoting the social marginalization of Muslim immigrants in order to create a parallel Muslim society in France that is ruled by Sharia law.
    The television presenter asks: "What if we went to the suburbs?" Obertone replies: "I do not recommend this. Not even we French dare go there anymore. But nobody talks about this in public, of course. Nor do those who claim, 'long live multiculturalism,' and 'Paris is wonderful!' dare enter the suburbs."

    The people of France had their chance to elect Marion Anne Perrine Le Pen - and they will have it again. We should all hope they seize it next time.

    Millennials won't retire comfortably
    While a recent survey shows that millennials believe that they're going to be rich at a relatively young age, other statistics show just the opposite is true: the cohort that grew up with the internet revolution and came of age during the financial crisis is doing worse than other generations were at their age. The Economist notes that millennials are also not generating enough wealth to retire comfortably.

    Millennials have been pilloried for their perceived 'failure to launch' and their nasty habit of 'killing' everything from golf to casual dining.

    Now a recent study by Brookings, reported in the Economist, says they're killing something else: wealth creation. Millennials are not only doing financially worse at their age than previous generations, they're also not saving enough for retirement; rarely have pensions available through their employer; and have taken on a huge amount of student debt.

    The Economist points out that despite these setbacks, a majority of this generation, according to a survey in 2018 by TD Ameritrade, believes that they will be millionaires, and one in five believes it will happen by age 40. (See full survey here: https://bit.ly/2KV6hxM)

    What's your take on the fate of the millennial generation and their professional prospects?

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
