The rise of the far right isn’t the major worry for today’s global democracy and stability. We are now faced with the possibility of a more fractured world. We have far right candidates whom question institutions like the United Nations, the European Union, NATO and African nations are leaving the International Criminal Court. We are witnessing the roll back of a world order that has been in existence following World War One, WW2 and the Cold War. The idea of creating mutual interests to detour nations from going to war against one another.
The world that we knew, that I grew up in has changed and will continue to change as those with completely different agendas will take over the reins of power in the major countries.
This can be halted with a radical mobilisation of people. Senator Bernie Sanders showed exactly what can be achieved. On the 21st of January 2017, a global mobilisation of people in support of women, known as the women’s march, was a huge movement with millions of people taking to the street with plackcards, chants, poems and songs but united in representing the voices of progressive thinking. This could be a catalyst and an opposition to the fractured world we are heading toward.
