Dear Habsburgers, the question of John Dunn, of course, is a correct one - and it is also obvious for me that on HABSBURG up to now mostly "foreigners" (one is afraid to write down the word) have reacted on the Haider phenomena. One possible reason could be that most Austrians are working, thinking and explaining at the moment more or less for a domestic audience. And another - which would be valid for me - that at the moment - many Austrians do have difficulties in dividing historical analysis from their being political individuals and/or activists, too.
