Voters are certainly angry with business as usual.

Something needs to change.

We will see right wing populist revolts against progressive globalism more often in the future. It’s inevitable.

You seem to relish the thought of a return to the 1930s. Spain knows well the horrors that caused.

Last week Franco's corpse was moved from the gigantic mausoleum he had constructed to a more simple graveyard where his wife is also buried. Should have happened years ago. Near the mausoleum are the mass graves of the anarchists he had killed.

The mausoleum should be turned into a museum about all the bad stuff Franco did.

There's that word globalism again which so many use without giving any kind of meaning.

Vox is not an extreme right-wing party as the article says. They are simply replicating the headlines in the Spanish press. Most of them are controlled by left-wing ideological media groups.

Vox is simply a right-wing conservative party equivalent to the US Republican Party or the British Tories.

In economics they advocate the free market system. A thinning of public and political bodies to reduce public spending. The capitalization of the public pension system with a public-private system because the current system is not sustainable in time. For having a population pyramid similar to that of Japan. In this matter both countries share the same problem. It also advocates lower taxes for SMEs and the self-employed. And above all for the middle and working classes. In order to increase the purchasing power of families. Monthly financial aid to promote the birth rate and expand public nurseries for children from 0 to 3 years. And reduce public support for abortion. Because in Spain this method is used as a means of contraception. But above all. Eliminate the discriminatory laws that now exist in the country. Where a woman has been endowed with greater power in rights and legality in front of men. Destroying in concept of equality that indicates the constitution.

The match that resembles in Japan with Vox to my mind is Nippon Ishin no Kai. For being an opposition party.
