I am sorry to start another thread but I'm really not understanding this phenomena on any terms what-so-ever.
"Riding a wave of public anger at corrupt politicians, austerity and illegal immigration, Golden Dawn has seen its popularity double in a few months. A survey by VPRC, an independent polling company, put the party's support at 14 percent in October, compared with the seven percent it won in June's election".
So we agree that a european far right state looks possible?
But I can seem pretty unable to find out what happens next - either if it occurs here where I live in the UK or another country like Greece. I just see the warning that it could happen and nothing more, which almost seems irresponsible.
And I am also asking about "barbarism" in general. I think we all agree that it looks like, without communism, things will only get worse and that capitalism won't recover. So then what, are we talking about global war and if so on what scale, or simply abject poverty?
I ask because if things do only progress in the negative direction, then I can't see any concrete outcome besides communism, but that is clearly my lack of imagination. You may ask why it matters, I guess I just want to know what chance there is of large scale executions in the UK, for claiming benefits or associating with communists e.g..
Any insightful replies would be so welcome I can't stress that enough and I'm sorry that I am appearing so much.
