    It is surprising how much the landscape changed in just 5 years. All the right wing parties got a boost, but most importantly, the ultra right and christian right parties. All those are surely going to want to implement ChatControl and measures like that because “We need to protect our children!”

    I’m also scared of all the new Q-Anon type parties that last time didn’t even exist and this time won a few seats. Ultra right conspiracy theorists that now have more seats than even the pirates.

    Also look at the results from Gernany or Austria. AfD and Orban. Pro nazi and pro russian parties. We’re going back in time for a remake.
