The threat posed by Europe’s far-Right surge

Dawid Bunikowski (Eastern Finland): The Crisis in Poland, Schmittian Questions, and Kaczynski’s Political and Legal Philosophy. It happened there: How democracy died in Hungary. When fascists turn violent: In Greece, a mob assault on a liberal mayor offers a disturbing view of where the current uptick in right-wing extremism can lead. Is Germany’s new anti-Semitism really new? Five takeaways about the Swedish election — and the far-Right wave across Europe. What a long day, now pizza: It’s hard to beat a fascism so tailor-made to the present moment, so well-adapted to the gaps in media coverage and the weakness of oppositional popular movements. The far Right aims to take control of the E.U. next year.

Germany’s Nazi past is still present: It is often held up as a model liberal democracy that has fully reckoned with its horrendous crimes — it hasn’t. A warning from Europe — the worst is yet to come: Recent events in the United States follow a pattern Europeans know all too well. E.U.’s leadership seeks to contain Hungary’s Orban. Sweden was long seen as a “moral superpower” — that may be changing. Is Poland retreating from democracy? A debate about the country’s past has revealed sharply divergent views of its future. The threat posed by Europe’s far-Right surge is much bigger than one election.

Steve Bannon claims to be the mastermind of European nationalism — don’t believe the hype. Trumpism in Europe’s mainstream: European elites criticise Trump yet echo his extremist agenda — as well as hypocritical, this is perilous to democracy.
