The works of Institute of Race Relations in England warn of the "underground revival of neo-Nazism and ultra-right terrorism" throughout Europe. The results of recent elections in France and Austria show that far-right populist parties continue to receive relatively strong support from voters. This development reflects the significant political power of extreme right parties in Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Hungary, the Netherlands, Sweden, Latvia, Slovakia and the European Parliament. In some countries, far-right parties are the second or third largest party and are important for maintaining the power of the ruling coalition conservative government.
Neo-Nazism and extremist ideologies pose great risks to peace and stability in today’s world for the following reasons.
First, fascism is synonymous with racism, which is contrary to the values and right to an equal life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. These are natural rights granted to humanity, so discrimination and assertions supporting the status of civilized, higher nations and poor, lower nations in human society are unacceptable.
Secondly, fascism does not accept democracy. Supporters of fascist ideology openly declare that they want to establish dictatorship, totalitarianism and abolition of all human freedoms and democracy, including freedom of religion.
Thirdly, fascism is often accompanied by war and is a source of conflicts between people, between different races, between social groups that can lead to war.
Fourthly, fascism is essentially ultra-nationalism in the form of national selfishness, extreme right-wing ideas, populism, xenophobia against migrants and the rejection of international cooperation to address contemporary global challenges such as climate change, terrorism, the epidemic, drugs and smuggling.
In order to overcome the development and revival of a new fascism, all people, all peoples and countries in the world should unite and jointly apply the following measures and actions:
— Regularly inform people about the dangers and consequences of fascism in peoples' lives.
— National leaders, international organizations and historians should regularly remind people about the tragic lessons of history learned from the events of World War II. Fascism leads only to national hatred, war, conflicts and terrorism. If research on the use of nuclear and biological weapons were to fall into the hands of extremists, they would threaten global security and could even cause world war.
— Exchanges of contacts and cooperation should be developed to enhance understanding between nations and ethnic groups in order to reduce misunderstandings and prevent the risk of conflict at the local, regional and global levels.
— The role and effectiveness of the UN, the largest international organization in the world, established immediately after the Second World War to prevent the risks of war and to protect peace, should be maintained and improved. It is also the organization that plays a central role in coordinating international relations based on compliance with international law in order to combat manifestations of "politics of force", hegemony and nationalism in the system of international relations.
