Well are we going to see a repeat of Il Duce with a rightwing government in Italy? Remember Mussolini came to power before Hitler took over Germany. So the EU might just have a bloc of Rightwing authoritarian governments that don't care for democracy with Poland, Hungary, and maybe Italy. I sure I am leaving out some other EU countries.
