ABSTRACT
This article explains that the effect of an anti-democratic coup has been to give politics in France a freedom which has been lost, and it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that this freedom, however limited, will benefit the cause of democracy. The situation is characterized by ambiguity in all levels: in Algeria, in the body of opinion rallied round President Charles De Gaulle, and in the purposes of the General himself. The French left was not the victim of militarists and fascists; it had already committed suicide. The demise of the French left occured in February 1956 when Premier Guy Mollet went to North Africa to seek a liberal solution of the Algerian problem and capitulated to pressure from colonialists.
