No, the rise of the far right is the symptom, not the cause.
People seem to forget that while we've seen an increase in support in far-right parties in Europe over the last few years we've also seen increase in support in far-left parties too; like Movimento 5 Stelle, Syriza, Podemos and Sinn Fein (who oddly is both a nationalist and socialist party, but don't consider themselves, well, nationalist socialists).

It about the far, not the left or right.
