There is more to the rightist trend than meets the eye: my speculations may be off the mark but in the long view the question of the eonic effect warns of the drift of civilizations beyond their moorings into barbaric horrors: the failure of ancient democracy and related republics is an example out in the open.
The left needs a far more comprehensive viewpoint able to deal with the issue of civilization as such..
The failure of the left//We Are Witnessing the First Global Alliance of Far-Right Parties Since the 1930s

I will be perverse and blame marxists for failing to distance themselves from the legacy of Bolshevism: the far right is a phenomenon being engineered from what I would call the ‘deep global state’, a nexus of related coteries from outright fascists, reactionary sufis and gurus, antimodernists, occult predistigators, and a lot more. We should recall that democracy in Athens between Solon (Cleisthenes) and the end of the Peloponesian war lasted about two or more centuries, sound familiar?
The left needs to rebirth itself around a hybrid that works of democracy done right, and a postcapitalist socialism with an economic resolution of neo-liberal via an economics that is functional without being controlled by capitalists.
