I agree with your earlier post, except disagree about there being no good and evil, naturally.
I know a young Chinese guy who mostly lived in Malaysia and Singapore; he's alt-right, hates the CCP, thinks that Romanian Fascist dictators are the ideal model for world governance. I despair, really do. Hopefully, the ignorance among the young Chinese diaspora is confined to such anecdotes, and is not-so-widespread. (shrugs)
What is wrong with the alt-right? I understand they are stigmatized by the fact that some of the members are indeed Nazis but most of them are only looking for a way out from the situation in their part of the world. The reason alt-right exists is the same reason radicals came to power in the 20's,30's and 40s of the 20th century. People are dissatisfied with their life. If we don't fix that then this process will only intensify. Housing that costs 40 years of your lifes work, low salaries, debt slavery basically, no work in society that bases your value by the amount of money you earn etc They are not exactly incorrect in saying that liberalism is at fault here along with globalisation.
European, American, developed nations middle classes are the losers that are subsidising the global growth right now. The more you impoverish the middle class, the more radical it will get until heads start flying of peoples heads. We will face a massive middle class revolt in both US and EU if nothing changes within the next 5-20 years. The current alt-right, Trump and Brexit are not revolts but just minor symptoms of what is to come if nothing changes.
Funnily enough, Hong Kong is facing a similar situation that pilled on top of the long existing problem of the encroaching CCP authoritarianism, assimilation and full destruction of HK autonomy. Don't forget, HK has perhaps the most priciest housing in the world, well at least one of the most priciest for example.
I do not think that any nation is hopeless to change; however, I think that some nations do require a lot more effort than others to become changed. - Verv
