Why hidden xenophobia is surging into the open | Nature - 23 Dec 2023 |

Anti-immigrant sentiment is playing a major part in current events across Europe and North America. Ireland is reeling from destructive far-right riots in Dublin in November. Also last month, the Dutch Party for Freedom, led by Geert Wilders -- a staunch and unapologetic opponent of Islam and immigration -- won 37 seats in the 150-seat House of Representatives, the nation's lower house. In the past two years, Sweden, Italy and Finland have elected right-wing governments. And in the United States, a second Donald Trump presidency threatens.

The George Bush years after 9/11, triggered the continuous rise of the far-right in politics, and xenophobia. Other events the election of a black president in the U.S. , financial crisis  and austerity measures, conspiracy theory and distrust of citizens with political leadership. "Civilization" was ready for Trump and white supremacy ... chaos level is ripe for military conflicts.
