[Future / Now] — A New Wave of Nationalism and Anti-Immigration
AI+News: stories written by journalists empowered by AI
The anti-globalization sentiment around the world (ironically, disseminated in the planet through the channels of communication that globalization created) will keep bringing far right groups and politicians to power. A new wave of nationalism and anti-immigration will keep gaining traction, with a violent discourse that in many cases will impact immigrants and other minorities.
Terrorism will not be an exclusively international threat anymore. Particularly in European cities, local ultra-conservative propaganda will target foreigners, LGBT populations, religious groups, etc. Liberal politicians will also be targeted. These groups will be the new “enemy” in far-right propaganda, as opposed as the international terrorist organizations of lore such as ISIS or al-Qaeda.
South and Central America are also regions sensitive to this trend, mostly due to large-scale involuntary migration and politicians in need of a scapegoat.
