  • How is this right-wing backlash reshaping Europe's political landscape?

    Will the right rise again?

    Many European countries are witnessing electoral gains for far-right and nationalist parties, though they span a wide political spectrum.
    The migrant crisis has fuelled a backlash against the political establishment, but the wave of discontent also taps into long-standing fears about globalisation and a dilution of national identity.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

      I believe that is true in the US also, however, just like in Europe the press is more than willing to label anyone who doesn't accept liberal concepts and proposals as the spawn of Hitler...

        And here at ACG some label anyone who doesn't accept libertarian concepts and proposals as the spawn of Stalin. It's called politics, a field in which intelligence is often a secondary value.

          Certainly, but never dismiss out of hand the "pendulum" affect..
          Public opinion will always be in a state of flux, the best politicians are those that learn to ride the rising tides, not those who try to stop the tide from shifting.

            Well I guess it is a matter of taste. I'd rate those following the tide as the worst since they only value power while those who stand for values and achieve to make those values a reality to be among the best. Lincoln vs Hitler.

              Member states as France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Holland, Greece ,

              And here,right means :center, as most right wing parties are directed by RINOS (right wing in name only )such as : Cameron ,who said that Britain should be a liberal society .

              And let's not talk about Miss Merkel, the less one is talking about that woman, the better .
