The same is happening in Europe. We have a greater diversity of political parties, but people tend to vote for populists parties, which tend to summarize complex issues into simple slogans. That's a big concern.

Populist parties is a sign of social tensions. When the average person don't feel that society is fair, he listens to extremists.

Absolutely. This is what happen now in many european countries (including Switzerland). But with a minumum of education and historical knowledge, people's wouldn't believe their propaganda.
