The Poisonous Dreams of Europe

Bruce Bawer writes of the Europe that can produce a tyrant like L:

Europe’s most poisonous, dehumanizing dreams:  men and women who are the sworn enemies of that messy, imperfect thing, human freedom, and who’ll never shake off their dangerous, blind faith in the utopian promise of authoritarian ideology.  So it stands, alas, in much of Europe in the year 2012.  To know anything about the history of the last few generations on this beleaguered continent is to realize that none of this insanity is new – and that every bit of it is, shall we say, profoundly inauspicious.
