So, Austria has a right wing government – not just a right wing party in government, but a full blown right wing government. Because, as far as I’m able to judge, I think Sebastian Kurz’s conservative party is far from being a center-right party these days.
Later today I will be flying to Austria to visit family for Christmas and meet friends. But yesterday’s events cast a somewhat dark shadow over things. Of course, nothing about my visit will have fundamentally changed. I will not suddenly find myself in some Man in the High Castle style state. But I am about to travel into a country – my home-country – that has a right wing government.
