I definitely think fascist movements are going to gain more prominence. They've been building for years and the economic crisis gave them a basis on which to legitimize their views. The ruling parties have done little to stem the tide and, in fact, with regard to things like emigration, have co-opted their message which gives them further legitimacy in the realm of ideas. What is interesting in Greece, and I expect elsewhere in the Eurozone as the crisis hits them with further severity, is the "legitimate" branches of government are throwing their votes/political power behind these fascist movements; the police in Greece voted overwhelmingly for the fascist parties. This shows the disarray that ruling parties have been thrown into, such that their regulatory forces have abandoned them and prefer other, anti-democratic methods for stabilization. If the ruling class is unable to restore stability to the market, and consequently the social order, or the masses aren't able to create a coalition in their favor, I fear that the fascists will step in with all of the brute force and authoritarianism that involves.

Shockingly, I agree with this 100%.

I think he meant socially, not economically.

Are we talking about the origin of the tea party, or the Paul Ryan version of the tea party? If the latter, then sure, they're a bunch of statists.
