There have been many uncertainties and challenges recently. This seems to have led to a growing nationalist and anti-EU attitude in many countries.

Why are so many people being drawn towards political extremism, and what can we do to change that? What would you do to avoid young people being gripped by simplistic solutions to complex issues?

As a medium-term solution, there has to be an element of reasoning and logic to help people understand the consequences of extremism. In the long term, we need to focus on education – with real substance.

The political extremism appears every time the social group feels excluded. There are many kinds of exclusion, but the main reason is the economical inequality. As long as we treat others like an endless source of cheap workforce, we have to face the problem it causes. People, who can't participate in the society and have no perspectives for a change, start to seek another places to feel appreciated and accepted. Some of them fall into the hands of religious fanatics groups and build their new identity on their lies and hatred. Others feel endangered by the diversity of modern society and join nationalist and populist movements, thinking they're protecting their lifestyle from 'malicious' outlanders. We live in the times of total globalisation, what has never happened in this scale before. It's difficult to create a place to live for people of different views and cultures, but this process is unstoppable. Instead of resisting what we can't prevent and entrenching ourselves in defensive positions, we should be getting used to it and try to understand others rather than fight against them.
- Acciones de sensibilización que incluyen a las administraciones públicas, el tercer sector y la sociedad civil. - Contenidos transversales en la educación reglada sobre historia, cultura y valores europeos. - Creación de un canal de TV+Internet público de la UE emitido con emisión en todos los países con contenidos que promuevan la integración y valores europeos, la diversidad cultural existente, noticias y producciones propias.

you seem to think you are the right ones in history. I think otherwise. So do many others as well. Why do we think so? Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. How different are the crises that the disjoint EU faces from the many of the empires that have fallen before? How highly do you think of yourself to not even consider our perspective? It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. It follows that you are either naive, stubborn or uneducated and short-sighted. How many a pro-EU and leftist-minded youth have I met to only discover them to be unread hyper-communicated idiōtēs, pretending to care about the issues outside of their gated communities. I dare any bureaucrat and self-righteous to work a dead-end job; I dare any snob, spoiled only-child or progressive to actually attempt to survive in a poorer, less well off environment; To deal with their own kind, to realize what hypocrisy, what moral relativism do they themselves go through in justifying themselves. And if you read any of this with disgust, a sense of self-righteousness, then this is for you - where there is truth, there is doubt. And you don't seem so doubtful about your beliefs.
It's important that people with extreme opinions are exposed to the difference they dislike so they will realise the similarities and the richness diversity brings to all our lives. This could include intercultural meet-ups. For those sentenced for offences related to extremism they should have to work with groups they have committed a hate crime against (like a 'meet the victim' initiative) as part of community service.

Fact or fiction? Is the EU trying to regulate pizza slices?

Traditional pizzas are to be outlawed by the EU under new laws regulating their diameter and depth.

Easy, end freedom of movement. Actually the EU is the extreme as you go after this meaningless ideal that doesn't count for anything in real life. Voting for patriotic parties is not extreme, it's sense. Merkel is extreme.
