In a recent speech an Italian mathematic, Prof. Odifreddi, reports how the person of Moses himself was considered by Hitler as a Leninist proto-bolshevik and by Thomas Mann as a proto-Nazi.
Even today there is a similar situation where Ukrainians call Russians Nazis and Russians call Ukrainians Nazis.
Not just them: nowadays any argument which is not in line with an extremist ideological concept, it is automatically classified as opposing extremism.
This has been happening for the last two years with a debate that most probably cannot even been consider such but rather the expression of pre-packaged dogmas.
As a matter of fact, any thought even slightly different from the dominant dogma is immediately turned to be considered a dangerous enemy vs truth and merged with the most extreme and repulsive theories.
It is impressive how Europe, cradle of the complex and articulate thinking and of the neutral search for truth, is fallen into a fanaticism in which thought is no longer considered an expression of a personal point of view, but it must adhere uncritically and unconditionally to the ideological current line.
