Ferry Bites the Hand that Feeds

Luc Ferry, who heads the Conseil d'Analyse de la Société, apparently doesn't think much of many of Sarkozy's recent decisions: the carbon tax is an "absurdity," the national identity debate is "philosophically exciting but politically absurd" (actually he's got that backwards), the national loan is "surrealistic," and the elimination of TV ads "makes no sense." But Sarko is still "the best, and by far." Hmm. The philosopher's reasoning itself seems rather absurd, surrealistic, and senseless, to borrow a few choice adjectives.
