We are confronted with a global change that will in just a few years turn our societies upside down and we have not prepared ourselves for it. Those who will not benefit from the change and might even suffer somewhat will turn against the system, angry, vengeful and resentful. They are the extreme left and the extreme right together and they brought Brexit in GB. The point is those two extremes have to be pushed aside and marginalized. The extreme left is easy to push aside in Europe. It has already been done in many countries. But to push aside the extreme right? When you know this extreme right attracts, in France, Islamic militants and newly converted Islamic believers, you do have a real problem. In France, the extreme right does not speak so much against immigration any more because it is these people who are becoming their rank and file soldiers, especially because of their deep antisemitism. In Germany refugee women accept to work and are very willing to do so because they become independent, they get some freedom from their husbands. But male refugees are very reluctant to go work and they are very reluctant to let their wives go work. Their values are extreme right values in Germany: the famous three Ks, Kinder, Küche, Kirche (children, kitchen, church).
