“One-sided” has become a way of saying that will probably mark our time (just as “ce n’est qu’un début, continuons le combat” was in 1968).
It is not the symptom of a residual phenomenon, but of a common cliché that was dormant for a long time and has now risen to new life.
It is a case of “present through the past.”
This present is rooted in the mythological machine of conspiracies that is currently active not only in Europe but also in the Americas, as well as in Islamic cultures and Arab countries. Demonstrating it was the research on the propagation of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion carried out by Pierre André Taguieff years ago. This “present through the past” is destined to last for a long time.
