‘There are rivers. There are fish.’ Has Emmanuel Macron lost touch with reality? – Telegraph.co.uk

I assume Emmanuel Macron will be the next French president. So he must now be as good as his word. If he fails, then irate French voters will surely back an extremist candidate all the way to the presidency next time. But what is his word? What does he stand for, this 39 year old who says he is neither of the Left or the Right? Sometimes it is hard to tell what he even means.

During the campaign FranceInfo put together a marvellous video compilation of some of his utterly baffling pseudo-philosophical nonsense. Highlights include. “I’ve always accepted the vertical dimension, of transcendence, but, at the same time, it has to be utterly anchored in the immanent, in the material.” Huh?
