Tanking Up

Two things are abundant on the Left: candidates for the PS leadership and think tanks. One of the latter, the Fondation Jean-Jaurès, has begun a refondation by replacing half of its advisory committee. Its Web site features a flashy teaser announcing that great things will begin happening on Sept. 3. Once you get past that, you find some interesting items, such as this study by Jérôme Fourquet of the rise of Olivier Besancenot. The social-democratic Left is obviously well aware of the challenge it faces. The only thing lacking is an idea of how to respond to it.
