Reader comment on item: Is Western Europe Turning to the Right?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jul 19, 2021 at 11:50

In what might be described as a conflicted intermixing of ideologies, conservative versus progressive intimations of governance are now taking on generational aspects that were not scene in the past as they are now. In some respects, as is seen in other parts of Europe, not all are induced into embracing the subtle influx of non-Caucasian populations, which might be seen as problematic even more so since Islam has not yet ceased in its resurgence of heading everything towards Ummah. In its more problematic for Germany, given its history, both ancient and modern. In some respects, since the connections during the Second World War in which the Nationalist Socialists embraced Persia with Aryanesque comradery, one might have thought a form of 'neue Kreuzz├╝ge', a revived crusade with German military efforts to take over the Middle East with Quranic affinities would have been enough to overthrow the Allies in the region, yet the French British colonialism remained and the Arabic influences were still then the premier political hold. Not until later, when the radical Islamic influences coming out of what is now Iran, but cultured in asylum mode in France, began its burgeoning of revived Quranic affinities and the confrontation with the weakened American 39th Administrative Chief Executive leaving American political influences in the wake, do we see that the confluences of moderated political thought trying to reset how to deal with the Middle East and the European populations not really understanding what really at state. This is what the 'polling' demonstrates in Europe; they no longer have a clue that their governments are throwing their future into the maelstrom that is the up and coming tragedy that is the Middle East. Do they really care that immigration into Europe will continue until the influences of the former Roman Empire is extinct? Not even Roman Catholicism will staunch the bloodshed.
Generationally speaking; the young do not remember how Europe got politically trashed and the older ones try so hard to forget. Had the Soviet Union survived in its march to maintain Marxism (but since it was appropriated into Stalinistic communism), the political stresses of that time might have kept Europe more on edge and not slipped into a complacent attitude of putting up with neo autocratic governance, and Islam would not be tolerated even more than it is eschewed today; but no, the confusion still reigns.
In the final analysis that conservatism might be a way the powers that be tempted in preventing another catastrophic fall into economic and political failure, but the Paris Accords are the clue. The fall of the Berlin Wall presaged another fall; that generation failed to warn this one; and the next thing heard falling are the thermo-nuclear ambitions Europe failed to stop in the Middle East. It will not be because of conservatism; it will be in spite of it.
