What is currently happening in France is perfectly described in literature:
. You may want to read "Rhinoceros", a play by Eugène Ionesco
A large part of the text is available on line athttp://books.google.fr/books?id=Q9zm8v7EqU4C&printsec=frontcover&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false
Or the paper version is available from Amazon with the ISBN 0802130984
. More recent, a very short novel "Brown Morning" by Franck Pavloff
A bit more details athttp://uwpress.wisc.edu/books/3793.htm
and seemingly you can also order it there.
