Why far-right parties in Europe increase in power?

Dark clouds are gathering above Europe and it is not only the imminent collapse of the financial system. One government after the other fail to protect and help the citizens to prosper, giving priority to bailing out banks and financial institutions. Citizens see that and see the incompetent of the ones that govern them. They see how political corruption is spreading like cancer in the whole Europe.

People are desperate and in desperate times they seek desperate solutions. And as a solution they turn to the far-right totalitarianism. Hatred between different ethnic groups is promoted, division among countries is increased, and support of violence and revolutions is also there.

The result is bit by bit far right parties from South to North of Europe are gaining momentum.

What governments expect? People are afraid about their future and the instincts prevail while rationality gives away. And that is only the beginning. In the years to follow I see the divisions between countries, hatred, xenophobia and nationalism to increase dramatically.

How far this can go? Soon we will now, but it is up to as to realize that what is happening can be used and will be used against us in the near future.
