Hungary heads to the right | Europe | Deutsche Welle

This is a deeply worrying and must-read article from Deutsche Welle, the leading German news agency.

via Hungary heads to the right | Europe | DW.DE | 13.05.2015.

This article takes a hard-look at rapidly growing xenophobia, racism, and right-wing radicalism.

As I reflected on this article, my mind switched to the growing hatred of austerity policies and increasing rejection of the European integration experiment under the banner of the European Community. Across Europe, we are seeing increasing polarization towards the hard-left and the hard-right of the political spectrum. Here is a vivid example of right-wing populism in Hungary.

Let me ask an open question:

Why has the central ground of the political spectrum gone out of favor in Europe?

Thoughts?
