You mean people tolerating democracy and supporting diversity of opinions when it suits their agenda, only? Yep but it is not new. It is not scary, just dumb, that phenomenon has existed for ever.
It is both dumb AND scary - countries have turned to socialism before - some posters advocate turning to socialism now - the Marxist thread was an eye opener - note all those countries who have been socialist in the recent past are now in political crisis.

The clear lessons - as demonstrated very clearly by the Visegrad states - you will note their economies and politics are doing very well recently - is that such thinking is self-destructive and can only be self destructive.
