Referring to our article, “It’s all too much”, one frightening statement is about populism becoming so popular and “the rise of fascist and communist dictators created an anti-democratic crisis in Europe”.
It is very difficult to understand the reasoning of the Trump followers in the U.S. and also in this country. Why I am so concerned is the fact that the U.S. is the biggest power on earth, with the biggest military industrial-complex, the most nuclear weapons, and the person in charge is a blatant liar. He brags that he can get away with anything. He says he could “shoot someone on the street and get away with it”. Who can possibly find any humour in this?
Democracy is on trial. There seem to be no checks and balances. Everything, most everything, the U.S. does affects us somehow whether we like it or not.
