And why shouldn't he? After all,
one century ago, Creuse had 284,000 inhabitants, as compared with 124,000 at the latest census. It is in the process of desertification, which its representatives find very worrying, because many of its public services are threatened.In other words, public services do not exist to serve the people and individuals. No, it's the other way around: the people exist to serve society's (or the government's) public services.
That's the kind of mindset you get when berthed and sheltered by the state from the cradle to the grave.
