Hearing a group of Germans shouting Volksverräter in 2016 is disconcerting, to say the least.
But this, and the emergence of an organised political movement, is the obvious and inevitable consequence of the idiocy that combines open borders and the welfare state in a world of instantaneous international communications.
Either the elites come to their senses and curb their ambitions, or the world risks the re-emergence of racial consciousness, with all the horrors that that will entail.
My fear is that the mind-set of the elites, so convinced of their moral superiority and the rightness of their cause, is not one for changing. They will throw us into the maelstrom.
