Petra Dvořáková: Měli se víc snažit. Česká společnost je k příčinám úspěchu populistů lhostejná

Podpora populistů v důsledku asociální politiky české pravicové vlády roste. Liberálové vyzývají k efektivnějšímu boji s dezinformacemi, levice dál chřadne či s fašizujícími proudy sama koketuje. A migrantofobie je už dávno mainstreamem.
