Be afraid!

The Rising Of The Right

 

It seems almost a global issue now,

the rising of the Right;

we need to put a stop to it,

we need to stand and fight.

Anti-compassion --

yeah, they are the ones;

a big band of

Attila the Huns.

You trip or fall

they’ll not lend a hand

so long as they

are still grand.

Money, the motive,

the key to success

and a firm control

on the media, the press.

Think for a minute,

you’re risking it all

if you dance along to

that Far Right call.

Let’s take back control before it’s too late;

we need to stand and fight,

we need to put a stop to it,

the rising of the Right!

This was inspired by a weekend election in Spain. The far right have been making a lot of gains throughout Europe and I, for one, find that a really scary thing. Thanks for giving this a read, Mike.

Well said, Hully! It is a growing problem. People are leaning too far one way or the other, but the right is gaining serious traction around the world. When it comes to political leanings, the middle is always best - extremes create more problems and stir trouble. There is no one set of ideologies that will fix current issues.

No, but lots of people are grasping at some very dangerous straws. The far right is gaining a lot of ground all over Europe, and it is scary to see the things that they stand for. Thanks so much for giving this a read.

I can't help but agree with what this poem says about the far right - or the far anything for that matter - but I do like your style of poetry. ~ Joe

Thanks, Joe. I tend to go for plain speaking. And as for the state of the world, I don't mind admitting I find it pretty scary.

When things are horrible in some ways, there will always be some extreme reactions, it's something very human. If the concept of love becomes more and more torn to pieces, i would react extremely aswell as i feel like that is one of the few things that can truly give life a lot of meaning.

I'm honestly not that scared of most of the far right, there's a small minority in the movement that are worth being worried about, just like there's a minority of other groups that committ terror attacks, while most are basement-dwellers, just memeing.

I live in Sweden and i've been becoming more and more worried of the extreme left, as they've ruined much more than the far right, although it'd be good if both would disappear. But those are movements that will feed eachothers hatred.
I believe the best we can do is talk, have conversations, preferably respectable ones, and try to see things from the other persons perspective, so that we can all grow as people and be the best that we can be. That's the overall solution to these things.
But it requires an effort from everyone involved. Which won't happen, but even you, as a single person can make a slight difference that way.

Thanks so much for that well-considered comment. Extremists of all kinds can be very dangerous, as you point out. The way I see it, people are becoming more and more polar opposites to each other; what suits one group certainly doesn't suit another. Meaningful dialogue would be nice, but I fear that the differences between groups are becoming so wide that this is going to be something very hard to achieve.
Thanks so much for giving this a read!

Im not sure where you live, but in the U.S. it seems the far left is the problem; they control the media, news is no longer news just fabrication, lies, propoganda, they're broken records with spewing endless hate for our president. They promote censorship and shutdown accounts and delete people simply because they have different opinions (straight out of 1984 the novel) the far left protestors are more like rioters who are violenly destryoing buildings and childishly shouting useless recycled rheotirc, not even realizing what they're fighting for with a mob mentality, accusing people of being facists when they are in fact acting like facists themselves. The far left can't handle jokes and they are constantly worried about being politically correct, and trying not to offend people so much so that it's gotten insane.

Well, unmasked, I live in Ireland, and this was actually inspired by the rise of the far right -- and I mean FAR right parties in a lot of European countries. Italy, Spain, Sweden, Greece are all seeing increases in support for these 'parties'; not to mention Brexit, which, although not strictly a far right thing, was certainly exploited by these for their own motives. And believe me, these people don't have any sense of humor at all, unless it is at the expense of one of the 'targeted undesirable groups'. Neo-Nazis all the way.

Yep, it is a scary development. But these trends normally occur in cycles. I just hope that the next cycle is not going to be a move all the way to the extreme left, we don't need another Rote Armee Fraction. From a political point of view I'd rather be somewhere in the middle.
