Highlights: Michel Onfray, 65, is one of the most widely read contemporary French intellectuals abroad. He founded the magazine Front Populaire in 2020, with the ambition of bringing together sovereignists of all stripes and those disappointed with politics. “We must euthanize the French peasantry, it is the project of an Emmanuel Macron who does not want to say it,” he accused. The philosopher also called for “doing history” to better classify political leaders and “stop making ideological commentary”


Philosopher, essayist and polemicist, the 65-year-old man is embarking on a new adventure: that of television. He now takes the reins of a new meeting every Saturday on the news channel, alongside Laurence Ferrari.

Launching this new meeting on Saturday called “Face à Michel Onfray”,

Laurence Ferrari

greeted the “doctor of philosophy” and “prolix writer”, saying she was

“very happy”

to be able to

“exchange and possibly scrap, because we are not agree on everything, far from it

.

“You are above all a free thinker and we love freedom of expression on CNews

,” said the star presenter of channel 16, ranked 2nd news channel.

“Face à Michel Onfray”, on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. (broadcast on Sunday at 10:00 p.m.), aims to

“gain height”

in order to

“analyze the movements that cross society, in France and in the world”

.

Coming from a very modest background, Michel Onfray, 65, is one of the most widely read contemporary French intellectuals abroad.

Coming from the left and supporting the “yellow vests”, he founded the magazine Front Populaire in 2020, with the ambition of bringing together sovereignists of all stripes and those disappointed with politics.

“We must euthanize the French peasantry”

During the pre-campaign for the 2022 presidential election, he debated with far-right polemicist Eric Zemmour, jointly denouncing a

“decomposition of Judeo-Christian civilization”

and a

“climate of civil war”

.

It was on CNews that Éric Zemmour took off to become a contender for the Elysée.

On Saturday on the air, the essayist reviewed the themes of

“peasant anger”

, the European elections and the war in Ukraine.

“We must euthanize the French peasantry, it is the project of an Emmanuel Macron who does not want to say it

,” he accused.

The philosopher also called for “doing history” to better classify political leaders and “stop making ideological commentary”.

In particular,

“if Marine Le Pen is really the extreme right, we must demonstrate that she is against democracy, that she is organizing crowd movements in the street, violent movements, that “she refuses the result of the elections

,” he argued.

As a reminder, CNews belongs to the Canal+ group, itself controlled by Vivendi, Vincent Bolloré's group.
