A blow on the forehead! I’m talking about the events of this week. We are talking about the presidential election in Austria, where in the first round was won by the representative of the far-right “freedom Party” Norbert Hofer. Yet a sort of soft version of authoritarian politics with the fascist twitching. And it happened in a country that is considered a model of European standards!

Another event – a speech, Donald trump speech, which has become his foreign policy doctrine. It does not matter that this was a verbal eruption of aggressive and uneducated man, not in conflict with the terms he was using. It’s a real estate salesman and he apparently believes that international relations are no different from transactions for the sale of houses.

The main thing is that trump put forward the idea that he clearly comprehended and understood, what was going on: “America First!”. This idea should be the goal of his presidency. Meanwhile, we are dealing with a slogan that is taboo in American political dictionary. For one reason – he once proclaimed American supporters of the Third Reich. And how could it happen that in a country with great traditions of democracy, a presidential candidate from one of the two major parties can become a politician with the Nazi taint?

Let the Russian supporters trump make no mistake his willingness to “fix” relations with Russia – he is going to “fix” from a position of strength. It is unlikely that the Kremlin is ready for such an eventuality. Let me remind you that national-populism is always aggressive.

In short, the crisis of the Western community has reached the stage when broke out the pus. Well, maybe trump and Hofer will be the blow on the forehead, which will cause liberal democracies to begin to look for ways of recovery!
