Olivier Dussopt believes that social democracy has “no longer any meaning”


Olivier Dussopt wants to make a clean sweep of social democracy. That must therefore leave room on the left for a “progressivism”, defends in a tribune at the Sunday newspaper the Minister of Labor, holding a left wing of macronism.

“We will not rebuild social democracy! “, affirms the ex-socialist, “for the simple and good reason that the lazy shifts towards the extreme left, in a counter-historical movement, have taken away its meaning from the word: it no longer has meaning and no longer ‘indicates more direction’.

Progressivism can “express itself within Renaissance”

The Minister calls for “turning a page and fully claiming progressivism”, defined as the aspiration for “social, societal and scientific, industrial and human, educational and environmental” progress. Progressivism “sets the whole of society in motion, never in a forced march, but in dialogue, consultation, listening; a method which, under the guidance of the President of the Republic, will support the development of our pay-as-you-go pension system,” he continues.

According to him, this development “should allow new progress such as the increase in small pensions to 1,100 euros, as important for social justice as the introduction of the minimum wage”. “Progressivism has the possibility of expressing itself within Renaissance”, he wants to believe: “There is its place. But it will not stop there, simply because great aspirations always go beyond party lines. In this logic, it is now necessary that the progressives meet, invent and propose. They have to speak to each other clearly, to speak clearly to the French”.
