RE: <nettime> victory or peace?

While I am no fan of the dim-witted fools who govern the USA (whether in
Minnesota or Missouri), any argument suggesting that the populist
political leaders you mentioned have anything in common with the
so-called "right-wing" movements in Europe is ridiculously simplistic.

Even within Europe the factors giving rise to these new political forces
are very different from country to country.
