The following intriguing extract is from George B. Boswell’s explanation of the fall of Social Democrat Guy Monet’s cabinet in France as published in the Social Democratic New Leader of June 17:
“Monet is a stubborn idealist steeped in the democratic principles of socialism ...
“Instead of preparing the country psychologically for the realities of a fast-moving situation, he laid down inflexible policies which only helped to foster unrealistic myths about Algeria by appealing to French national pride. Censorship has even been extended to France, where it has become increasingly difficult to publish the truth about torture and repression in Algeria.”
