Dear Nicholas,

This is a fascinating article on the Gilets Jaunes. Thanks for the time and trouble to put it together and publish it here.

With respect, I believe you are mistaken about the Yellow Vests here. While I am sure that they feel attacked on their core values and sense of self, their core values and sense of self appear to be largely rooted in xenophobia, racism, zero-sum thinking etc. There is little or no significant trace that I can see of true anti-elite and anti-urban sentiment per se. See for example https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/9kxkw...

Warm regards,

Nicole
