French is still the pre-eminent diplomatic tongue, and one of the five at the UN. The US --and I am a citizen-- has, unfortunately been, of late, spitting on International Law, ecological principles and on basic principles of human rights, when an alien, docile government does its bid. As a citizen, I am not proud of that, and you should not be either!

Most scholarship no longer done by the French but rather the philosophical writing is still done by the misfits of that country. And pretentious stuff it is. > Yes: Egypt has as much of N. Africa etc
