Misinformed Voters Are A Threat To National And Economic Security.

Greetings from Italy :) 
You might want to elaborate on this, since it’s a global phenomenon. Here in Europe we’re having a similar problem with populist parties taking over and wrecking havoc on an already wekened European Union. Even leaving the brexit aside for a second, one can’t ignore what’s going on in Germany and France, where far-right parties are on the rise. Denmark joined the “xenofobic paranoia” club a few weeks back. Poland and Hungary are ruled by xenofobic conservative parties willing to build walls around the whole perimeter of their countries. Fearmongering and fact-bending have reached alarming levels across the board, with some political parties overtly encouraging racial profiling(!). All this comes with the usual, generous side of anti-euro rethoric and “immigrants stole your jobs” babble, which is super effective on simpler minds. People are losing their trust in democratic insitutions at a record pace, which puts us on a straight road towards dictatorship: it won’t be long before people start demanding extraordinary measures to address the many difficulties we’re going through right now.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
