I'm really no big senior official of the French gov., believe me, but I don't think those things would be that simple, otherwise this country would've merely sunk for long.

If you seriously think the French are like some dumb cattle following any capital establishment just like that, you don't really know them. Keep in mind "equality" is a key word of our national motto.

While the national administration has been centralized over Paris for centuries, which definitely explains the much larger size of its region, most the collected public cash must actually be redistributed throughout the entire country. It's pretty obvious.

As far as I go, I'm what they call a "libéral". Which means in my opinion, it'd probably be even better if each region of the country enjoyed a bit more of freedom and autonomy. I'm basically a federalist, but this opinion of mine doesn't make up a majority over the nation (yet).
