Far-right Illiberalism on the Rise in the United States and Europe

Right-wing extremism is based on White supremacist nationalism. White nationalism is that belief in national identity built around White ethnicity. The far-right populism has disrupted the politics of many Western societies. It racialises a lot of problems even when race is not the answer. White supremacy is a far more dispersed and deeply ingrained ideology in Western society, which over time, may appear harder to defeat.

The White supremacists think of forming a White ethnostate. The White ethnostate will only be of Caucasoid people of Germanic, Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Nordic and Aryan roots. To preserve their White, European, and Christian cultural identities, they argue that they deserve to be segregated, preferentially treated, and specially protected. These White-supremacist far-right groups are motivated by White nationalism, Caucasian ethnicity, and their Christian identity. White supremacy also refers to a social system in which White people enjoy structural advantages (privileges) over other ethnic groups, on both collective and individual levels, despite formal legal equality.
