The nations will form new constellations

As regards France, I am like a Jew in relation to the Chosen People. I love the Temple, I love the ruins of the Temple, and if these ruins were to turn to dust, I would love the dust that came from these ruins.

I have the impression that France will continue to be key among the nations.

The Roman Senate

But, as in days gone by both the Western and Eastern Empires existed, as in Christendom itself there were two empires, the Byzantine and Roman/German, so also alongside the pre-eminence of France in relation to the older nations we will also have the cultural empire, dominion, and hegemony of other nations, profoundly imbibed with the best of the Latin and French spirit, but also bearing of itself other saps.

In my opinion, these will be the Latin-American nations.
