They're Socialists All the Same
May 30, 2014 By Tomasz Wróblewski
There is no such thing as a single nationalist movement in Europe. Nationalists in France differ a lot from their counterparts in Denmark or Britain. But all nationalist parties have a similar view of the government’s role in the state. They all want socialism more than anything else. They want the labor market to be protected, farmers to be granted special privileges, the government to intervene in the school and healthcare systems, and they also want the government to support factories at home.
Despite all the cries of horror and fears of fascism, no major qualitative change has really taken place. Whether decisions in Europe are made by Brussels-based socialists or by socialists in individual member states, the basic fact remains the same: Power will be in the hands of socialists and Europe will still be on the road to nowhere.
