Retrospective and Prophecy

Kuehnelt-Leddihn, Erik V.
December 1975
National Review;12/5/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 47, p1349
The article discusses developments in world politics. In much of the Mediterranean region, parliamentary democracy is a failure, and it would perhaps be the same in the East. Meanwhile, the West continues its course of masochism and abdication. It passively accepts the Soviet invasion of Hungary, the Berlin Wall, the occupation of Czechoslovakia, and the fall of Indochina.
