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.

Olive oil, wine, nuts, fish.....good for heart and brain - bad for society.
Change is life..... we all owe democracy to French revolution, though Magna Carta was older.
