First don't "you" me since I voted for Macron in the first place and I'm not among those protesters.
Here I'm just explaining why protest against the government is legitimate according to our electing system and especially this one after the "Republican wall".
Then, it is not the case of most country. Most country only have one turn, most of them are parliamentary democracy, we are not.
Also, protesters are not all burning things and stuff, in fact most of them don't. This reasoning is exactly like racism "i know a black thief so all black are thief". Above, you said these protesters have 0 knowledge, so I assume you have some, so please use it.
You take our exemple as comparison. First, bravo you seem to have courage. But few things :
- you can't ever justify anything coz there is worst situation. Because in Yemen people are starving AND getting bombed, people just starving should be happy? Mankind doesn't work that way.
- perhaps, unlike them, you don't have to drive as much as they do in order to work or study. Perhaps, unlike them, you don't have kids to pay for.
- The bid difference between you and them is expectation for the future : as a student, I assume you expect your situation to not be permanent and to improve once graduated, I have been in your shoes a long time ago and I was. Meanwhile they are convinced their situation will not be better, they are at the top they can expect from our society. Even worst, they are quitte afraid by a future even worst for them as it tend to be with Macron's policies : easier to be fired, more taxes, retirement later, etc..
That's a game changer to be optimistic or pessimistic for your future. If you can't empathize enough to understand that, you will never understand why they protest.
