Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have to wonder if we've just been lucky, in this particular moment, that the forces of fascism in the English speaking countreis have been led by such buffoons, or if there is something in the particular makeup of talent, education, belief, and personality that is common amongst Western countries.

Namely, has authoritarianism become so obviously stupid in that only incompetent buffoons feel any desire to become authoritarian leaders? Or, is the right-wing voting block that thrills to the speeches of Trump so stupid that only an equally enormous idiot can truly appeal to them?
