    The Fifth Republic is pretty stable.

    France also had a very stable monarchy for centuries.

    Most of the instability from the end of the 18th to the first half of the 20th are a result of the French Revolution in 1789, which changed the country radically.

    Change is life..... we all owe democracy to French revolution, though Magna Carta was older.

    France is a left-wing country.

    They never had a constitution as good as ours.
