That link appears to be broken and googling it doesn't seem to bring it up either...

Try this: http://www.raison-publique.fr/The-Essentialist-Critique-of.html

The link there appears to be broken as well, but it worked earlier, so perhaps they'll fix it.

Yep that did the trick.

Yes, we were fixing it and it's working now at : http://www.raison-publique.fr/The-Essentialist-Critique-of.html.
Many thanks for giving this link.

As for multiculturalisme à la française:
Luc Chatel's educational reform would kick out "Moslem civilization and its relation to Europe in the Middle Ages" and would replace it - wait for it -
with
"Christian Europe in Medieval Times"
