France: The Nation That Keeps On Giving

For the second time in four months, France has been rocked by violent protests, but this time it is students whose upturned noses are out of joint because, unlike their work-force predecessors, they are not guaranteed jobs for life.

Last November, the children of emigrees took to the streets because they wanted changes. The students are taking to the streets because they want things to remain the same.

Does this make the current round of protests counter riots?

The Washington Post's Claire Berlinski weighs in on this and more.
