During the last French democratically held elections, there was a big shock as it seemed as though a right-wing party would actually be a front running contender to win the general election. Hard fought though the national front and Merine Le Pen narrowly missed out. Defeated by the centrist Macron. The liberal left of Europe thought that they could breathe a sigh of relief. That however was not the case. Not long after the cracks within the parties, Europe-wide were being put to the test. The Alternative for Germany (AFD) gained 94 seats in the Bundestag (Germany’s government), the anti-immigrant businessman Andrei Babis became the prime minister of the Czech Republic (a politician plagued by corruption allegations I may add), and then there was in Austria the right-wing Freedom Party, which took 26% of the national vote to become a coalition partner. Further south you have the five-star movement in Italy. Not to mention Brexit and the election of Donald Trump to the highest position in the land, President of the United States of America.
Throughout Europe the governing political bodies have drastically fallen out of favour with the voting public. But why is this? Well. One reason is the sway held by the Philanthropist and businessman George Soros. He has single handedly destroyed the very essence that made Europe so great, with his Open Borders policy (amongst others). For once the people of Europe are fighting back. What the liberal bureaucrats never envisioned (or were completely blind to), was the fact that it is the people that hold the true power. Not pencil pushing desk jockies. Oh, but I could not just blame this on just one man. After all, it has been a collective fau-par. The overbearingness of the European Union: its authoritarian rule over its members have indeed cast aside the loyalties that once were awarded to the Union. Just like the Soviet Union fell, so is the European Union. Alll from the miscalculations from the top. This is a problem with the extreme left. They think of good ideas, but when it comes to putting in that all too important hierarchical system, they fall depressingly short.
The rise of this populist movement has been quite ingenious. Toning down the rhetoric has taken these parties from merely ‘surviving on scraps’, to actual being in positions of power. Really able to make change happen. Le Penn was a master at this. Now, because of the lessons learnt, the right now has the ability to bring the liberal elitists to their knees. In my opinion, they should be put behind bars. Their dirty tactics have destroyed the Union that was supposed to bring all the European countries together.
Come the European Elections next year there comes the time that the liberal elitists can finally be brought to justice. I hope that the new order will bring to these liberals what they deserve. To see Europe taking a different direction is going to be something that is going to be monumentally significant to the entire global system. What I am worried about though is that we will be replacing one authoritarian regime with another.
