One Woman's Struggle To Survive 'Too Much Vacation' In France
The rhythm of the seasons in France is dictated by the school calendar. And French school kids spend less time in the classroom than their European peers. Along with a two-month summer vacation, French kids have a two-week break every six weeks throughout the school year. Thank goodness the Paris elementary schools run a system of day camps during the vacations called centres de loisirs, or leisure centers. The cost is minimal and the kids get a hot lunch and are even taken on field trips to museums or a farm outside the city. It's operated by professional animateurs as they're called. Running a kids' vacation leisure center is actually a full-time profession in France. Let's face it, the children who spend their vacations at the leisure center aren't as lucky as some of their friends, and the kids know it. There's nothing like a glut of vacation to highlight the gap between the haves — those with the country houses and grandparent networks — and the have-nots, mostly the children of African and North African immigrants. On this four-day weekend we'll be celebrating Ascension. That's right, this staunchly secular nation is marking Jesus' rise to heaven 40 days after his resurrection.

国庆节快乐
民众的“理论基础”是:我们纳了税,就相当于交了费了,所以其实应该天天免费。现在是因为平时要收费国庆才免,才会显得国庆是多大一个便宜大家疯抢。美国都不收费(这是传的未确证)。只要做到天天免费,就不会堵了。
因此,有此人就别抱怨中国历史没有走向资本主义了,我们全民都是天然忠诚的社会主义者。公共卫生和交通全免费是全民哪怕堵死、挤死、病死都会坚决赞成的。他们——正如所有社会主义者那样——理解不了什么叫“资源稀缺性”。小平同志为市场经济说了这么多好话,诸如“资本主义也有计划,社会主义也有市场”,但现在看来似乎缺一句更显然的:社会主义也缺资源!
可以说,只要我们一天在地球上,就不会存在“物质极大丰富”的共产主义。因为发展生产力本身就要消耗资源,而热力学第二定律规定了资源的利用效率是不可能无限增大的。所以就算我们的生产力发展到极致,我们无非是做到了一个卡诺热机而已。资源稀缺性将伴随人类社会终身,市场经济是不灭的。中国人总爱听好话,例如过年的时候摔了碗也要说声“落地开花”,像“资源稀缺性”这种事,中国人是不喜欢去面对的。
