ABSTRACT
The article reports in some of the political developments in France. In recent years, France has moved progressively toward fascism, a political development closely linked to phenomena of decay and obsolescence inherent in the social structure of France. As some elements of the center parties and the army have joined the right, elements of the non-Communist left have been moving from an independent position into closer ideological alignment with the Soviet bloc. For the time being it is clear that the rightist threat to democracy in France is still acute. To assess the French scene only in these terms, however, would be shortsighted. For it is equally clear that the success of a fascist coup, or even prolonged disorder, civil strife and general political instability, would in the long run exclusively benefit the Communists. Now attention has been turning to the ultras of the left, a small but highly articulate group of intellectuals, writers, artists, students and professional people, many of whom adhere to the intricate left-of-Communist thinking.
