In the Netherlands, two micro parties polarize the public debate. DENK positions Dutch people of non-Western origin against majority society. And the Forum voor Democratie stirs up the anger of white men. Both parties are smoldering wounds in the body of democracy, says political scientist and lawyer Matthijs van Wolferen. In the west one should watch the development carefully. Because elsewhere, the ethnicization of social conflicts could blow up the traditional party landscape.
