The crisis of liberal democracy in Europe has many elements, for example the situation in the Middle East, China and Russia.
These are areas where there is no liberal democracy but indirectly affect the situation in Europe, there may even be direct actions against the democratic rule of these countries for example, disinformation spread by Russia or the poisoning a former Russian spy in the UK.
The new media are used for military operations in Europe – we have to call it that. If the war is an extension of diplomacy, we have such situations in Europe. The name itself tells us – new media. So in my humble opinion, after this disinformation attack, the situation in Europe will stabilize. People will realize that they have been subjected to attacks and they will be more resistant to this type of activity.
Similarly it was during WW2 when Germany and German occupied occupied areas, were ruled by their propaganda. But there were people who did not believe them and that is why the Germans suffered a disaster. Now, it is easy to access information and we can check if someone is manipulating us>
In my opinion, the new media will bring benefits to democracy and perhaps the collapse of regimes hostile to the democratic system.
