As economies decline, demagogues – political leaders who seek support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices – will gain power.
Italy’s economy is circling the drain and austerity is causing much pain. The revolutionary Beppe Grillo, a comedian and convicted murderer gained considerable political power in their last election.
Here’s a video of Beppe with English subtitles. Note the body language similarities with another demagogue, Adolph Hitler.
He’ll be lucky if a ‘fatal accident’ doesn’t befall him.
Expect to see more as the economic pain increases.
