    Europe and nationalism: A country-by-country guide

    Across Europe, nationalist and far-right parties have made significant electoral gains.

    Some have taken office, others have become the main opposition voice, and even those yet to gain a political foothold have forced centrist leaders to adapt.

    In part, this can be seen as a backlash against the political establishment in the wake of the financial and migrant crises, but the wave of discontent also taps into long-standing fears about globalisation and a dilution of national identity.

    Although the parties involved span a broad political spectrum, there are some common themes, such as hostility to immigration, anti-Islamic rhetoric and Euroscepticism.
    Short answer: Yes.

    The problem with Capitalism is that humans run it.
