For 75 years the European continent has allowed itself to be subservient to Mordor.
For the first 25 years it was understandable, having just come out of World War II. But the last 50 years of vassalage are harder to explain. Germany badly needs Russian gas which is being offered cheaply. But doing so would be to defy Mordor. Every European leader who is a centrist or liberal, or even Social Democrat cannot stand up to the United States. It is the right wing that has the potential, first in Hungary and now possibly in France with Le Pen.
