On average, only 33% of Europeans think things are going in the right direction. This makes them search for „saviors” who can change society’s status quo. In recent years, globalization has created the context of an aversion to new societal changes. Immigration is one of these changes that came along with globalization, a change that we can’t stop. The changes that came along with globalization are perceived differently by western and eastern Europeans. The West sees globalization as an enemy because states are heavily populated by immigrants while they are losing control of capital and institutions, and the East views globalization as the enemy that has depopulated states and allowed Western powers to intervene in domestic politics. This is the path toward the emergence of populists and eurosceptics.
