Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But in Germany before the Nazi takeover, radical solutions were on the agenda and militancy was on the street (remember Rosa Luxemburg) right from the end of WWI due to the war loss and the unreasonable reparations demands; and these radical solutions didn't become majority opinion and street violence didn't escalate until centre-left-supported and centre-right-pursued austerity in the face of recession, that is, the polarisation was a result of the unworkability of the 'moderate' agenda rather than the other way around.
