04 okt History or no history? Who’s ashamed of Europe?
This is not just a statement: everytime the economy goes sour the stupid majority tends to look for a scapegoat. They can be Jews or Roma, gays or priests, Muslims or …. The year 2010: the whole of Europe seems to have voted for the same bad guys. They are guilty. Guilty of the failure of the majority. Instead of fighting their way back into work and income, the not so silent unhappy have found the easy way out: discrimination of the visible minorities. Easy targets, foreign and thus dangerous. Does it ring a bell? Of course it does.
Three cheers for Europe, the global centre of culture and history. Three chears for the return of the nationalist parties, the populist leaders, the power of angst and stupidity. The fashionable colour today is brown.
We might as well move to Africa!
