Did you ever play that game as a kid where you choose a superpower? Maybe you choose to know the future, and if you did, and you got it, you’d be a pretty popular person. Everybody wants to know what’s going to happen before it happens. It’s kind of an obsession that many of us have. Fortunately for us, there are groups of scientist that are working on it. Not giving people super powers, but being able to predict the future.
The progress on programs like this is absolutely extraordinary and while it was completely ignored at first, the predictions have gotten more and more accurate with scary specificity. These, formerly considered, soft sciences are gaining credibility as the technique is honed to something that can almost be depended on.
According to French physicist Serge Galam, a victory for populist anti-mass migration presidential candidate Marine Le Pen is entirely possible due to a phenomenon known as differentiated abstention.
Professor Galam, who works as a research director at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), says the science proves the possibility of a Le Pen victory, SFR reports.
“Differentiated abstention” is the key, according to Galam, who defined the term as: “The gap between the vote intention declared in the polls and the actual vote.”
Galam says it is incredibly unlikely that those who voted for Le Pen in the first round of the French presidential elections last Sunday will vote for Macron, guaranteeing her a sizeable base. He also said it is unlikely all those who oppose Le Pen are guaranteed to support her opponent Emmanuel Macron who is unpopular with far left and conservative voters.
“With less than 50 per cent of voting intentions, Marine Le Pen can end up with more than 50 per cent of the votes cast,” Galam said.
Serge Galam has a history of accurate predictions over the last two years. In June of 2016, he correctly predicted the Leave campaign would win the Brexit vote. In November, he predicted Donald Trump would win the U.S. presidency, and recently predicted that popular French politician Alain Juppé would lose the Republican primary.
Macron, a former investment banker at Rothschilds & Cie Banque, is widely seen as an establishment candidate and is in favour of globalisation. Some, like Breitbart London’s James Delingpole, have compared Macron to former U.S. president Barack Obama with Mr. Delingpole calling him “the living embodiment of the French Deep State”.
The former Socialist Party economy minister is also pro-free trade and free-market, positions which Le Pen criticized Thursday when she joined several fishermen in the early morning. She pledged to take back the sovereignty of French waters by getting France out of the European Union through a referendum on the nation’s membership.
If their establishment is like our establishment then it’s a very good thing for the french that Le Pen might win. The “establishment” here basically means that the money hungry want to control everything, strangling out those beneath them and letting the middle-class duke it out for the chance to make good. This is no doubt part of what prompted the United States to elect President Trump in a colossal upset that many would have sworn would never happen.
It may be that the rest of the world has been inspired just a little, and they want to take back their rights and do what we did.They’ve also gotten to see a big show of strength with Britexit happening just next door. Many countries have been tired of what’s going on in the Europian Union, but Britan was the first to actually make a graceful exit attempt. Obama wanted his legacy to be one of change, and I think he accomplished it. Many Americans were perfectly willing to sit out elections and just hope that everybody else kinda did the smart thing. His policies probably did more to inspire the moderates and conservatives to get off their duffs and get involved in politics than anything in recent history.
So, what does this mean for you? Most importantly, this doesn’t mean that your vote doesn’t count. It does means that people are throwing more and more money, trying to figure out what you’re going to do before you do it. This makes it even more important that we tune out the propaganda. Whoever has the most money will try and predict what you do, and then preemptively brainwash or manipulate you to turn the results toward what they want. This means we need to focus even more on the grass roots work. Research, think for yourself, encourage others to do the same, and most importantly, don’t forget to go vote!
